If you have everything hooked up as pictured above then I would say you have it set up correctly. If you are getting skimmate and aren't getting bubbles everywhere then give it a day or to and see what your results are.

It must be drawing air near the pumps output and since it's still hooked up to the skimmer.

Typically this is done at the pump but it must be at the pumps output to the skimmer. Is there a way to adjust the amount of air coming into the skimmer?

It looks like it is working similar to a becket injector...the water is pushed out of the pump and into the venturi and then into the skimmer body. If you are getting results meaning you are getting skimmate then I say let it run for a day or 2 and see what you end up with in your collection cup!
