Skimmer Problem

My CSS125 skimmer that I have had for 4 months stopped producing all bubbles. It literally looks like a lift station, as all it does is lift water into the neck of the skimmer, with no bubbles whatsoever.

Has anyone ever experienced this, or know what this is from??

Yep, just suck some warm fw down your air tube and it should be good
