I came home from a 3 day vacation and my skimmer isn't working properly. See attached pic... i have a very basic skimmer but it always worked great. I would never be able to open up the airline all the way or water would pretty much shoot out the top. But now with the airline open all the way I can't even get a drop into the top container
I tried obstructing the return of skimmer a bit and it will overflow but now bubbles...... It's a model 7 submersible pump.
I have the airline that comes out of the submersible pump connector (you can see from pic).... then I have a small hole in top of top container (no air line hooked to it)..... Then the return doesn't have anything but a PVC
down spout attached to it.
It always worked great. I took it completely out and put it in the bath tub... pump is working great... no obstructions in pump, airline, skimmer or return ..... any feedback would be great.
