    Guys please help, I have a Skimz 121 Skimmer and I am very pleased with it until now... it is making a hell of a noise for the last few days and if I don't get it sorted out my wife is going to throw me and my skimmer out... when I got it it was making a grinding noise so I got the new impeller and that worked like a charm but now it is making a vibration noise. So bad that I have to put the TV lowder toe hear the TV. Can somebody please help?

    Open your skimmers air intake tap a bit, if it's to close the pump will make noise.

    @459b I took apart the pump and cleaned the impeller. but no improvement.
    @Francois Yes when I close the air intake its even worse but at the moment its all the way open.

    I also submerged the skimmer more but also no improvement.
