Now, I run it wide open. Try a bigger pump on it if you can get your hands on one; it's a very different skimmer with a bigger pump. You'll be amazed.
Thanks Tennsquire. I may hold off on the gate valve. Im not having much of a problem adjusting the height with the tube. But I will look into the larger pump.
