Well, my setup isn't ideal. I know I have it setup right now that needs changes. However, because of the lack of a second pump, I am using the Skimmer pump as my return pump. It is t'd off to the Skimmer as well. So basically, the pump that came with the Skimmer is powering my return as well as my Skimmer. The Skimmer has been working great but I was thinking that if I was to use to pump solely to return to the dt and the the return would then flow directly to the Skinner, it would be more optimal. It wouldn't be "too much" since all the water that's flowing to the Skinner is from the pump that's designed for it... ok, now I'm rambling. It is a 550gph pump with ∅ head.
