As long as the pipe on the outflow is running over the side wall of the sump and back in at a level equal to the water height in the skimmer the water will equalize. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Do you have any specific recommendations for a feed pump?
We certainly have a few options available! I have included a link to the Sicce 2.0 which once plumbed in will lose some GPH flow and can be tuned down with a slight control knob.
Additionally I have included a few links to more affordable pumps. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
