Does BRS still run a Skimz recirculating skimmer on the BRS 160?

    Because I'm having problems with mine. First of all, which way do you turn the dial to lower water height in the body? I have the SM 122 and it's overflowing like crazy.

    Have you tried raising it on a slimmer stand?

    Sorry, I forgot to say no feed pump. Skimmer is fed tee'd off return line. Water level height won't make a difference.

    Adjust the bubble size screw on the small airflow chamber. I have mine just barely open I like super small bibles, then adjust the water level dial until it's perfect.

    This was it. I never knew this adjustment would make a difference. I thought this screw was just for silencer.
