    Hey guys just want to ask what the water level should be in my sump for this skimmer. It's in 11" of water at this stage and skimming, I just want to make sure its at its full potential.

    Where should I set the water to break with this skimmer?

    water in the sump is just above the minimum water level mark on the skimmer body
