Product Questions

Does sump water level height matter on the recirculating skimmers??? My sump water level is pretty high (15") and if I have to put this on a stand I won't have the clearance. Thanks for the assist.

Great question!
Unfortunately the water inside of the skimmer will equalize with the water in the sump. This skimmer would need to be placed on a stand otherwise the water will simply raise above the outflow tube on the skimmer and cause the skimmer to continuously overflow. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.
