Sump? My sump is just an extra container of water. If you are referring to the refugium, algae does not need skimmer cups full of waste in order to grow. It will do just about the same before or after the skimmer. The skimmer slowly removes dissolved organics over time, and does not perfectly clean every drop of water it has access to.

Your argument is far from what the OP is asking. To answer directly the OPs question, you will be defeating your sump/fuge design and purpose if you change the configuration or redirecting the water flow. Just a note, aside from algae soon you will have cucs on your fuge.
