The directions say 262 gallons per hour maximum flow for protozoa. I'm using a sicce syncra silent 1.5 with maximum flow rate of 358 gph and have the flow restrict or set to about the half way mark.

The pump is located right at the overflow to get water straight from the tank and the return from the uv is plumbed right near the intake for the skimmer.

Hopefully this arrangements takes care of it!
