It's supposed to do that. The more bubbles the better. the bubbles are what carry the organics to the top and into the cup.

Something is wrong with your water then, not the skimmer.

Forget calcium and alk. Focus on nutrients. What are you adding to the tank to make the skimmer go crazy? You said it does this after water changes and then it subsides. I have never had a skimmer do this after a water change. How exactly are you doing water changes? How do you mix the water? What salt? RODI? What is the TDS of the water after the RODI?
