Newbie - Filter Problem

Hi people,

My dad bought a 115gallon tank 2 years ago and he recently decided to have me maintain the fish tank.

I got heaps of questions to ask, but I'll take it step by step...

I have a mini reef (sump/trickle filter - whatever you call it) using a RIO Hyperflow 26HF pump (1600g/h).

My problem is that the water flow pumping into the aquarium is faster than the water being pumped out. I'm always having to adjust the flow via the shut off valves.

Does anyone else have this problem? How can I fix this so that I don't have to adjust the valves everyday?

I've included few photo..
