    Hey guys I was wondering if somebody can help me.I finnaly got the part for my new skimmer i was waiting for.When i tested the skimmer out in a bucket tonight I found the pump pumps the water straight out the top of the skimmer.There is no "knob"that u can turn to reduce the water like my old skimmer.So how do I reduce the water flow?The pump is just under the water.

    Hi JimboPE - OK - so, are you now "turning" the outer water outlet pipe left- or right to adjust the water level inside the skimmer?
