I had the skimmer for just over one month. It skims very good, but I am getting micro bubbles out of the bottom. I have the tunze osmolator sensor on the back slot so water level is constant. I took it apart and everything looks ok. Still getting bubbles. Any suggestions??

Remove the osmolator sensor from the back slot. The same body is also used for the filter 3168 and that is what the sensor can be installed on, for the skimmer, the hole is a relief for excess water and cannot be plugged without affecting the skimmer. Raise the skimmer so 1/4 to 1/2 of the intake is submerged, not more. Open the air as far as possible, work with depth first to get a drier skimmate and then only close the air as little as possible, most bubble issues are due to too deep submersion or closing the air which increases water flow so the bubbles are travelling further and faster.
