Protein Skimmer Problem
Got a new Octopus NW-150 yesterday. There is no instruction booklet - just a diagram on how to assemble it - which has much to be desired. But I figured it out, eventually. The water and bubbles are at least 6 inches from even reaching the neck below the collection cup. It's been this way for 12 hours and the bubbles won't get any higher. Here is a pic of what it looks like.
Glad to see you figured out how to adjust it. The recommended procedure for these types of skimmers (the best for most hobbyists are indeed needlewheels) is to get the bubbles up to about the union attaching the overflow cup to the foam tower. In a few days it will begin creating enough "nog" to overflow.
