So i have my Tunze 9001 in my return chamber where I have two return pumps. The thing is my protein skimmer is always filling up supper fast!. Its hard to dial it in good. Should i reduce the return pumps flow??

The water on the return chamber or on the skimmer? I have the water line a little under 1/2 inch.. and the water line on the skimmer is about an 1/8 under the collection cup

Skimmer.  Water level should be about 1/2" below the water level line, the line is the max level.

 

How long has the skimmer been operational?

You can also try moving the pump position, it may be "sucking" too fast.

I actually just dialed down the return pumps a bit and that seemed to work. The skimmer isnt going crazy anymore.

@805NanoReef Did you have to cut out one of the back baffles to make it fit? I have seen that is the only way and am looking to upgrade my skimmer in my IM20

@schleppey   No i just moved the magnet to the side of the 9001. I have it in the return chamber. Have two pumps running 1/2" tubing going straight up to the return nozzles.  Fits perfect in there.
