I've been using a Red Sea berlin XL skimmer for awhile, and it started "burping" on me... One of the outflow tubes will fill up with water, then suddenly empty, causing the water level in the skimmer to drop suddenly, then rise back up, but only until the next time it happens... Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

I noticed on the new model at Jenn's that at the top of the discharge tubes they have vertical small diameter airline tubes. This air break would prevent siphoning, which could solve your problem.

Siphon breaks will fix it, the output tubes screw into the skimmer, replace them with standard pvc, get rid of the 90 bend and use T fitting siphon break
