i would cut 5mm off the pipe and see if that helps. i had to cut about 30mm off my pipe as i replaced the pump.
What model do you have? as how do you add a second pump

I added my neck cleaner back. working well, 2 days of skimming

It is the same one on the 9410, all the skimmers use this now.

Thanks Roger.

Just confirming that part 9410.500 will fit the outlet pipe of the 9420 skimmer

Thanks

I managed to get hold of a 9410.500 off a friend (he has a 9410 skimmer and isn't using this sock/collector).

It seems to have a (very) small step in the 50mm hole and I can't get it all the way onto the 50mm riser. The first part slips on until it hits the step - then it is really tight (read push it on).

Is this expected or is there a trick to making it fit on?

I also trimmed 1 inch off the stanard outlet pipe height and the overflow is working as per the video.

The skimmate is from around 24 hours. Not sure if its to late or to dark or what?

Thanks

The video shows it working correctly, that is about the color skimmate I would expect. Yes, the basket fits tight, the pipe is shorter now on the 9415. For the 9410 a reducer bushing is inserted in it and that is removed for 9415 and 9430.
