protein skimmer mo

i have an aqualine protein skimmer and it is rated up to 150gal. it is powered by a rio 1700 ph. i have a mag 7 pump i want to use.

can i use the mag 7 instead of the rio 1700? if so, how do i go about using it (installing it?) i tried awhile back but the water overflowed from the skimmer.

thank you for the help guys.

if the pump caused it to overflow last time you hooked it up then you could try using a valve between the pump and the skimmer. Just note that this back-preasure could shorten the life of the pump.
