    I have bought a ts3 skimmer second hand, can someone explain to me how to set it up to skim dry? I have the outlet pipe set at its lowest and it keeps filling up the cup instantly. Do I need to lift the skimmer higher out of my sump. Thanks any help would be appreciated

    ensure that the air tube is at top of water intake of pump and has no kinks in. secondly the water level in skimmer needs to be just past bottom of black cone. water level of sump should be just above water intake on skimmer( about 2 cm)
