Skimmer setup

Skimmer setup
Building a 150 gal. reef with 40 gal. breeder tank for the sump. Bought a Skimz SM 202 external skimmer rated for 190 gal. with high bio load. The manual is really limited to assembly.

1. How high can the water level be in the sump?

2. Can the skimmer output go into the same partition (before baffles) or does it need to go into another partition?
