yea just raise the cup a little. if that doesnt help raise it abit more, it takes a few days to get it dialed in.

Have you put in any additives lately? When I had one, there was a few times it would do that and I had not done anything to the tank. Must be something in the water that the skimmer does not like.

I wouldn't use that stuff. Also, don't use tap water unless you run it through an RO/DI unit first.
