I would go with turbofloater multi instead. There is a lot less plumbing involve and the skimmer is ready right out of the box. Exact skimmer just a lot less stress. The turbofloater with ocean runner pump needs some return water with a ball valve to control the water level. You can't hood it right to you siphon box cause the flow right will be too high. You are going to have to tee the sipon box and add a ball valve. The skimmer is also bigger than the multi and as user friendly. The two are basically the same skimmer.
