    Hi There

    I have a TL550 with the original skimmer. After I cleaned my skimmer cup over the weekend and inserted it back in place and switched it on water is coming out of the cap. Not sure what I did wrong can anyone assist with advice to fix this?

    Thanks

    You pushed the cup in to deep. Pull it back up 2 or 3mm.

    The inner tube at the top, just below the cup, should have a small clearing.
