Just bought the 9430 dc. Iím running it in a sump that is rather deep in the skimmer compartment. More specifically, the water level is above the top of the output pipe on the skimmer (top of outlet pipe is about 1cm below the water level). It seems to be running fine, but wanted to confirm that this wonít have any negative impacts on overall performance. Should I raise the skimmer so it isn't sitting so deep in the water?

This would have the same effect as a taller pipe and makes it more likely to foam over, with the DC version you can compensate a bit by turning the pump down. It would be best to raise the skimmer.
