Junk,
Keep us posted on what's happening with your skimmer. Sorry about your problems/mess. Hope that was all it did with no damage to anything.

Have you determined yet what caused the overflow. I'm asking because, although I don't have a Knop, I have an Excalibur and I think it is/might be a Knop knockoff. I haven't had anything like that happen to me, yet after about a year of use.

regards, fsa

I've had overflow problems with my Berlin XL and it's caused by too much water flow... I throttle back the pump a bit and it's fine... I leave the Venturi full open for maximum bubblage(TM)...

:eek: Well Jeff sorry to hear of your mess, of course we both know that someday this will bring us a laugh, (some sooner than others) but just remember standing in my den, with a hose hooked to a mag 18. You were soaking the walls like a fireman ! And if that didn't brighten your day, then picture my wife when I told her what you did, remember ? Anyway I have an extra skimmer, let me know.
