@Garfield90, I have a friend that lives pretty close to me who uses the BK650 on a 1500g display, plus about a 200g sump. I'll confirm with him exactly what he's doing these days, but if I remember correctly he is running the skimmer on for 3 days and off for approximately 1 day.

@fishflorist, I've seen this many times in the past. When something gets stuck in the impeller it rubs up against the inside of the pump housing and eventually wears down the pins. I'd suggest purchasing a new impeller to fix the issue, then try and make sure you're running bag filters in the compartment right before the skimmer.
