    Cheers Gary. Iím not sure what I should be doing with the lights to be honest. The defaults are very long times for lights to be on. Iíve added the lunar cycle to it so itís a little bit different when it comes to ramping down. Iím currently using 23k with sunrise at 16:30 and sunset at 23:30.
    Would you put it on different things everyday?

    Skimmer is in. Itís overflowing a fair bit. Will it need lifting up a bit? Itís set to max which is actually the lowest setting it seems. Any advice is welcome!

    Iíve taken the valve off the end so it doesnít fully overflow out of the top...

    Hi Liam, first thing is you need to break the skimmer in, on this skimmer on the control arm Max is low skim and Min is high skim don't ask me why but that is how it is...it will take a couple of days to bed in like with most skimmers ....you are looking at getting the bubble to sit at the bottom of the cup, so you might have to rise the skimmer up a bit until you get this something right and then after a couple of day you will need to play around with the Min & Max dial until you get it just right.

    Will have a look out there and see if there are any video's for you.
