    stinky skimmer

    Hey,

    I have one of harley's custom hangon protein skimmers which I've been using about 8 months. Over the last week it started to give out a moldy smell that has been getting worse and worse.... anyone know of a potential cause ? I removed the skimmer and cleaned the whole unit about 2 weeks ago for the first time, could it somehow be relating to this ?

    I also noticed that it doesn't seem to skimming as much as it used to since the cleaning either.

    Nick.

    Nick, have you checked to make sure nothing crawled into the pump? I've heard stories before of snails getting jamed in a pump.
