hey guys i have an ETSS reef devil skimmer and i am in the process of building my sump and was wondering it it goes in the sump or if only the pump goes in the sump and the water coming back out is plumbed back into the sump. I seen pictures of both so not sure

Skimmer

I would place it in the sump. If it overflows, all that water goes right back in the sump not on your floor.

Yeah what mrkell said,Another reason to keep it in the sump is if you place it outside the sump you will need to allow for the extra head pressure to drive the injector properly,So you would have to buy a bigger pump,keep it simple,Those skimmers work great,If you start tinkering,It won`t work properly.and you will bad mouth or complain about a great product because of a choice you made,or did not account for.......
