Why does my skimmer excessively overflow after using Chemi-clean?
Your Skimmer is working overtime to remove the left over residue of Chemi-clean left in your system. If this excessive flow is too much you may dilute the Chemi-clean remaining in your system by addition water changes. The replacement of your chemical filtration will also help.
