We would recommend the Sicce 1.0 if possible (slightly larger up to the 1.5 as well if you need to push the water a further distance) The sicce allows for easy plumbing using the included barb fittings with soft tubing or the female NPT adapter on the pump. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
In short, no. The water would simply fall down and pour out of the collection cup as the siphon is created.
This skimmer can be placed external next to the sump. You will the drain from the skimmer to flow back into the sump at the same height so the sump may need to be drilled if your sump is taller than 12" Otherwise the drain will simply lay over the top of the sump. The 1200 pump is more than adequate for the feed pump.
