Bh2000 hob skimmer

Been us I g these for about 2 weeks. First week was off and on only while I was home to keep an eye on it for preventative reasons. Past 4 days or so been going 24 7. Producing foam but no skimmate. I do have a lite bioload but want to ensure correct operation for when load does increase. Is this the rite level of skimming? Does these look correct ? Thanks again everyone.

Skimmers take time to break in. Give it some time before trying to make any adjustments. I'd give it a week.

It can sometimes take a month or even more to break in. It depends on how much of the oils are left on a unit after being through production. Tie that in with the low nutrient levels that you have already stated are in your system, it can take time.
