well, thanks for the offer to do a skimmer deal, however, i decided to keep and put it in the sump. if install it externally i have to raise the unit so the gate valve clears the top of my sump. doing that will raise the skimmer higher than i can fit under my stand. instead of installing the skimmer externally, i decided to use an external in-line sump pump to make room for the skimmer and the skimmer pump.
our boxer puppy's name is Buster... he is about 10 wks old.
