I really don't know as I have it throttled back, I don't use it for flow, if you flow is too fast, your skimmer doesn't have time to work, I have it throttled back about a third, only throttle back on the discharge end

What are you looking for, my pump is it the basement, the plumbing from the basement, or the under tank plumbing. I have it set up so I can adjust discharge and flow under the tank as well as flow from the pump

Well in general I'm looking for ideas and ways to set up my basement. I'd really like to have the main sump. Refugium . Frag tank and algae scrubber all set up. Plus of course skimmer and uv sterilizer
