I woke up to go to work and my skimmer was going nuts.  I shut it off and cleaned the collection cup and now no matter how I adjust it skimmer it still creates enough foam to fill everything up.  It has put all kinds of foam in my sump  please help.  Should I just turn it off till I get home from work?

Change out your filter sock lately? That always does it to me.... when it happens I just back it off as much as I can, fill the collection cup a couple times then it is usually good

Did you add anything lately? New additive, new food? Sometimes these changes will cause your skimmer to go crazy.

No changes at all.  In fact, I turned down the wedge pipe and that didn't even slow it down.  then I had to leave for work.
