Skimmer feed pump question!

I am currently using a Rio 600 for the feed pump on my Turboflotor 1000 Skimmer. I want to replace but see that people are having a lot of problems with Rio so I was wondering what other people are using for a feed pump?

I just wonder if the Rio 600 is enough, in doing some reading I have seen that it reqires a 250gph feed pump. The Rio 600 is rated at 200 and that is the pump that came with it
