    The outlet should be above water level.
    And those donut sponge rings. Should be fitted on the outlet, so that the water fall trough the rings. That should keep the bubbles out.

    If skimmer is too deep, you can raise it on some 50mm PVC pipe laid flat. Mine is like that.

    if you do not know, then you do not have them. Did you buy a second hand skimmer?

    yip but the sponge needs to be out of the water along with the outlet so the water can flow throught the sponge.
