no bubbles or foam in Turboflotor

Hello,

I have a turboflotor 1000 in my sump that is being fed by a rio 1200 (with needle wheel) on the air side and a aquaclear 402 (270gph) feeding the water side.

when u first plug it in theres tons of bubbles but after it fills the chamber theres none at all.

Can anyone help em with what im doing wrong?

Thanks!
Gavin

well it seems that it has to do with air/water mixture.

if anyone can provide any insight it would be greatly appreciated.

and the Rio has an airline running to it?

i'm not familiar at all with your skimmer...in fact I'm even confused by the fact it uses two pumps...but I'll take you're word for it.

thanks for the reply.

yeh the rio has its airline. ive got some bubbles now, just not enough water i guess or something

it has two pumps because its made to be hooked directly to drilled output which i do not have it doing.

ive seen others on this board do it this way, im hoping they chime in
