sorry,not very clear. Can't adjust it to a reasonable flow.Too much coming out of waste tube on top where collection cup is.All it has to adjust it is the pvc "elbow" I think. Very frustrating.LFS said difficult piece of equipment to get just right.But the help ends there.

If you have the same skimmer as here, https://www.globalpets.com/SPD/seali...1233330738.jsp, it looks like the pvc outlet on the left has a union. Can you loosen the union and slide that pipe up and down? Lowering it will lower the water level inside the skimmer.
How deep is the water it's sitting in in your sump?
