Sorry for the late reply!
Could it be feeding related? Some types of food cause skimmers to go crazy. Since you mention that it only happens once a day, this could be related. Also, check to make sure air isn't getting restricted. Take the air tube off the silencer for a little while and see if that prevents overflows. If so, the silencer could be clogged, which reduces the amount of air and proportionally increases water intake, resulting in an overflow.
