Just started using my Diatom filter yesterday to clear up a gw problem in my 65 gl tank and have noticed a steay stream of bubbles coming up and out of the exhaust tube. Is this normal? By the way, the directions for setting up one of these filters are terrible. :x

if the bubbles dont go away after 45 mins check your hoses for leaks and youseal on the canister.. use some vaseline on the seal. if that doesnt fix it check for a crack in the venturi base.
