    So heres a funny one, i have noticed that when i used to do my weekly clean on the tank i never switched the skimmer off and obviously it stopped skimming for a few hours, since i have been switching it first and putting it back on only after the cleaning, i find it starts skimming straight away?

    so who else does this?

    just out of curiosity,

    I switch mine off, cause I also clean the inside of the tapered neck. Then monthly, I take out the pump, strip and clean completely, I also clean the venturi ;)
