I just got a prizm skimmer and there's a bubble in the inlet tube that wont go away causing the skimmer to make this weird noise and not do wut it's supposed to do. I did everything on the instructions correctly and followed the tips that it gave me. If any of you have this skimmer, how did you get the bubble out of there?

the skimmer wont start working properly for a few days and that weird noise is actually the noise it ill make regardless of the bubble or not, they are fairly noisy :frown:

the bubble should go with time, either that or push water through the tube with the pump while partly closing the tube with your thumb
