Skimz Skimmer Question

I just purchased a 122 external. I have an issue with the height of my sump and cabinet. My cabinet is too short to raise the skinmer The outlet standpipe is 12 1/2 inches High approx. My sump wall is 17 1/2 I need to raise the outlet pipe 5 inches. I had two thoughts. Add an external pump on the outlet to push the water up and over the sump wall with a ball valve on after the outlet of the external pump to control the back pressure and flow. The other thought would be to put a larger diameter pipe on the outlet. Both ideas require additional PVC fittings. Where can I buy some 45 degrees, tubing 6 feet and 90 degree elbows from you if not where can I purchase some in the united states? I cannot find the +GF+ fittings anywhere. And I am looking for some feedback on the two ideas two customize as well....

Thank you,

Sean Orr
