    Water splashing out of skimmer

    Anyone know of a way to keep water from splashing out of the skimmer? Lots splashes out from where the lid seats to the skimmer as well through the vents in the lid itself. We were considering sealing the vents with caulk and possibly finding a large o-ring for the lid.
