Question Bak-Pak 2+ Skimmer

Does any one have any info on the Bak-Pak 2+ Skimmer? The past few days it's been skimming pretty wet. My collection cup is filled with water in one day? Is there something else I should be doing? Or maybe it's just doing it's job. There is a heck of a lot of Foam but by the end of the day it's filled with waste and water.

Let me know...
Thanks

I got it almost 1/8 inch submerged as requested. Now the whole neck does not need to be submerged under water?

Just move it higher to keep the water out. Just want the foam.
