I bought a used skimmer years ago to build a system. Through a series of events, the project was delayed due to home changes and a home flood. I have moved this skimmer and a 120 gallon tank with the hopes of setting it up. This is the year. Any suggestions for mods to add to this Early skimmer? I upgraded the pump a couple years ago when I thought this was going to happen (the flood stalled that build) Anything plumbing to add to output? What depth of water do you think this should sit in?

Any suggestions on this skimmer and setting it up? I have never used this unit.

It looks like everything is ready to run. The PSK-1000 will perform well on that skimmer. I'd plug it in and let it run.
