Super skimmer model 65

I'm having trouble getting this bad boy set up. The directions don't really explain anything in great detail but I can't get the bubbles working without water overflowing in the collection cup. And on top of that the input that adjusts the water flow, comes off in the tank a lot, how can I fix that?

I had to turn mine all the way down and it still did for a day. It also took 2 days to break in and stop sending tons of micro bubbles in to my tank. I now keep it almost all the way down and it will take weeks to fill if I were not to empty it out.

In other words, it's no "bad boy". You can do much better for around the same money.

I think MrX is correct.

Do you keep the thing in the pump turned all the way down? Or the red tip by the bubble diffuser?

Are you talking about the tube from the pump that brings in the air?

The hose should reach about an inch above the bottom of the little black box that hangs next to the skimmer.
