View Full Version : BK 250 Gen 1 External Relocation question

Looking to see if I could be able to run my Gen 1 BK EXT skimmer on a shelf about 3' above my sump. I see in the manual it suggest not having the return piping over 30CM but dropping into the sump it should have zero back pressure.

just running into some space issues and looking to see if this would work

I think you will be just fine as long as you aren't restricting the effluent line of the skimmer and provided you can provide the skimmer with adequate flow. The idea is that the drain line can gravity flow back to the sump which from the sounds of it won't be an issue in your case.
