I was wondering what mods you guys did on your klaes' to quiet the air intake and prevent dust getting trapped in the venturi! As of now, I'm tearing down and cleaning my skimmer every couple of months and I don't want to be doing this! and my tank would be pretty quite if not for the sucking noise of the venturi!

I run 1-2 cups of hot (almost boiling) RO water through the venturi every 2 weeks - this dissolves any calcium/crud deposits, and keeps it open and functioning well. Before I adopted this routine, I was taking it apart and cleaning it often. I have not noticed any sucking noise, but it may be drowned out by the sound of the pumps and the overflow.
