Sorry Cody ,..but I'm stumped,..... Doesn't make much sense to me,...protein skimmers are by nature kinda touchy and moody at best,...it might be time to take it out and shoot it,...I'm sure someone here will come up with the answer,...good luck!!!!

I would take it out and clean the entire body and neck. Also take the pump apart and soak every piece in vinegar for a few hours. Put it back together and see if it still overflows. If it does, chances are something was added to your water (supplements, water conditioners or medications).

Ah., good point on the meds., I know that on my buddies tank that we used "chemi clean" on., it was advised to turn off the skimmer because it'll cause it to go haywire

I used Chemi-pure. But it doesn't say any of that. Skimmer is clean, cleaned it a few weeks ago. Pump won't come apart. But I think it has slowed down on skimming

That's chemi clean,...not chemi pure......when I originally posted that reply I accidentally typed in chemi pure but went back and edited it to chemi clean ( used for cyno bacteria outbreak)

Cody,..if you used " chemi clean" for a " cyno" outbreak WITHOUT turning off you skimmer then that's what has probably caused your skimmer to overflow and act squirrely...." chemipure" won't cause any skimmer issues

.."......I don't know if chemipure will help on the cyno but chemipure elite which contains some ferric oxide will help with the phosphates,....I don't have any more suggestions on the skimmer issue,...maybe someone like mr x or another member who has more hands on time can help you out,....sorry Cody
