Protein skimmer advice

Currently have a seaclone 100 and it has yet to produce any waste. I have had it running for over a month and nothing. I have tried adjusting the Venturi valve several times and still no dice. Is my aquarium not stocked enough or should I invest in a different skimmer?

Are you sure you have it submerged to the correct depth? If the skimmer is in water that is not deep enough, it will never produce any waste...

Thanks for the help! Upon measuring I realized it was only an inch beneath the water and the directions advise it to be at least 2 inches.
