View Full Version : Help with modded skimmer

11/03/2007, 12:02 AM
Hi there

I have a modded ASM G3. It has a reirc mod and gate valve mod. My supply pump is a Maxi 1200. I have the Sedra 5000 as my recirc pump. The problem I am having is I am getting a lot of micro bubbles back into my sump. So much that the skimmer section of my sump is foaming. The tank is brand new and in its cycling phase. Please let me know what I can do to reduce the bubbles.

Hmm, is there a leak in your skimmer output or is your volute on your pump lose. Also you may have to much flow goign through your skimmer as this is why you have micro's escaping through.
