View Full Version : Couple of Question for Octopus Skimmer

09/27/2008, 10:20 PM
i bought a new octopus nw-110 and when i plug it in to run, it looks like this.
But then a couple of hours later, there were some build up of what to be the "brown stuff" thats suppose to go to the cup, but instead it builds up at the neck. I do not know if this is how it suppose to run.
Like i say, im new to this skimmer and i need some advice. Thank you

And also, is the neck of that skimmer suppose to be having water in it? Thank you all in advance

Don't know about that new neck, I wouldn't think it should have water in it, but other than that it sounds and looks like it is running right. The bubbles collect in the neck until they gather enough junk in them and them get pushed up and into the cup.

yes water is supposed to get into that first chamber, the bubbles continue to rise to the cup
