    take the pump out, let it dry for a few days.
    Get some epoxy and put it around the cable right at the pump.

    Maybe my post was incorrect
    The pump is working, but for some reason is sounds like it's making a tripping noise, the skimmer keeps overflowing even tough the value is completely open. Not sure if this is because it is pulling into much water and not enough air

    It might be that its pulling more water in. Cheak if the ventury is blocked. Also cheak at the bottom where the ventury is connected on the pump that the fitting isent blocked or lose so being the reson for pulling in more air than water.
    Also clean the pump properly, something might be stuck inside making the noise.

    Good luck

    Took the pump apart over weekend and changed impeller but that didn't make a difference, will check the Venturi and see
    Thanks for the input, just not cool running tank with skimmer and with these things taking time, it becomes a little stressing

    Just an update, my skimmer air intake was blocked so badly that I needed to twist a drill bit inside to loosen up the build up. Thank goodness that was the only issue, so skimmer is back to normal
