Reef Octopus 150

I've had this skimmer for almost a year and it has been trouble from the start. This skimmer either produces very little to no foam at all or completely fills the cup within minutes. I have constantly played with the regulator to dial it in with little success. There is no middle ground. The water level remains constant in my sump and I have cleaned my pump internally two or three times. The latest problem is that the pump is producing a constant flow of tiny bubbles. Its a constant fizz that appears to be coming out of the side of the pump. Any suggestions? Has anyone else had a problem with this skimmer? Thanks for your input!
