If you don't have a air hose that runs from the submerged pump to a little black cylinder that is out of the water it will only draw water up and no bubbles. Then I am sure all it will do is overflow water all day long.

So you had a lot of water come into the cup the first day or two? Like was the bubbling water almost to the top of the cone?

Yea it was doing that but I messed with it till it was not going up all that far. I think I had adjusted the pump to low and the red knob. I ended up turning the pump back up and left the red knob down and all has worked fine. Do you have it in a sump or HOB?

Is it set up now? What about the air tube? Did you turn both of them down? Post a picture

Well I took it off to try and get my cup off since I put it to tight when I took it out of the box. But I'll throw it back on real quick to post a pic

Yea you will fight with that cup forever, if you don't get it tight it leaks and it is a pain in the blank to get it off.

The return line needs to go down in to that box almost to the bottom of that box.
