Seio Pump

I just bought a Seio super flow M2600 powerhead for my 90 tank. I was so excited it finaly came in the mail and I get the mounting on it I wanted to use. I plug it in and all I get is bubbles. I don't mean some bubbles I mean 10,000 bubbles per second. does anybody know what is wrong? how do I trouble shoot?

Thanks Roger

If thats a submersable pump how could you be geting bubbles? I know this is a stupid question but could the bubbles be coming from a venturi injector that you didnt know the thing had? Iv been looking at that pump for my tank.

Im sure you know what it is your prolly just dont recenize the name. Its whats on the end of some powerheads and its used to put air into the water, its also used on protein skimmers.
if you will look at the diagram, at the top of the pump there is a blue knob, if you twist this you should shut off the bubbles. if the bubbles dont completely stop(maybe theres a leek) all you have to do is completely submerge the pump and there will be no air being blown out.

The bigs ones are fine, but iv heard that the little ones can irritate the fishes skin but dont hold me to that becuase its just something i heard. I hate the bubbles i think there ugly.

why would you want a air intake on a power head anyway. For what purpose?

People use it to aerate the water for plats and stuff.

air intakes are mainly for freshwater, you hook up your CO2 system on it, it diffuses your CO2 and feeds your plants
