I just hooked up this skimmer. It seems to be working ok, but the outflow seems to be very minimal. If anyone has experience with this particular skimmer, I would appreciate input

Are you getting a lot of bubbles?

not much in the way of bubbles. I think it is working well. The outflow rate of my other skimmer was much higher.

There wasn't much outflow with this skimmer but collected a lot of crap.

Try taking the venturi apart and making sure it's not clogged. Take apart the whole pump in general, clean the impeller up, no restricting flow things ya know

I don't think my wife will let me take it apart. I always seem to have extra pieces when I'm finished...lol

Its very easy to take apart. I cleaned it pretty good last night, too. Sometimes the venturi does get clogged with salt and all you have to do is clean it out with a toothpick.
