I have a Octopus NW-200-6540 that has quit skimming, it is stock except I put a new Flexible pin wheel in, I am getting nothing out of it. It seems to bean older design that use to be carried by proteinskimmer.com, but that now leads to Remora. I put an old Remora skimmer that is pulling out skim, but this is a 125 and it was designed for like a 60. Any ideas?

Thanks

sorry i missed this...

so, when you say stopped working,
can you describe what exactly the skimmer is doing?
is the pump working and producing foam?
have you checked for obstructions in the inlet, outlet, and venturi?

Thanks, I have since figured it out, after a cleaning the slide tube was down too far and it was not skimming, I have since done the gate valve mod and it is so much easier now to adjust
