I had the same problem and it is frustrating. I have now sloved my issue. I took some airline tubing, ran it from my powerhead into the U-tube. It sucks all the air out. I leave it hooked up like that all the time. I have duel u-tubes, so I got 1 u-tube under control and started having the same issue with my other. I purchased a small rio 50 powerhead and did the samething to the other u-tube. Not one issue since then. I am new to this also, not sure if this is the preferred method but it has worked for me, not one problem since. Hope this helps.
