if thats the case get a smaller pump with abotu a 100gph flow rate maybe even a little less. will do a better job of filtering, if it was goign to be used with a skimmer i would say get a maxijet 1200 and do a mesh mod for it, look of CPR bakpak mesh mod and you'll have a few how toos to tell you how to

I thought you said you had the collection cup! If not I hope you didn't pay much for it without the pump either. You can get them pretty cheap off eBay.
