Problem with Octopus NW 150
I bought an Octopus NW-150 less than 3 months ago. The box had no instructions or warranty paperwork in the box. Thankfully, the skimmer was very easy to put together by just looking at the picture on the box. The skimmer has been working wonderfully, until now.
The skimmer pump is no longer working correctly. The pump sounds like it wants to work, but no water is sucked up into the skimmer. There has always been plenty of water over the pump.
Any ideas? I tried to contact Octopus online, but I have yet to get a response via email.
Has anyone had any problems with the Impeller in the pump going out so soon? Or perhaps the venturi or seals? Is there a way to check to see if the impeller is the problem without the trial and error method of buying replacement parts to see if that is the problem?
