Yep, that's happened with both the 'venturi style' skimmers I've used (but it was far worse on the Prizm skimmer).
I find if I just pinch the airline, sort of kneed it like a tube of glue that needs mixing, that breaks the salt up and it runs fine for a couple more weeks.
salt creep is just one of those SW
maintenance issues we deal with.
