Cost of skimmer $1800+ , OR3500 $300+ Total $2100+

OR3500 x 2 = 130watts

Bro,

I was just wondering. Since you're using twin OR-6500s as return pumps, couldn't you also have Tee-d off the overflow piping into the skimmer instead of using another OR-3500 as a feed pump?

I don like the idea of T-off , just wana make full use of the 2 return to overturn the tank faster.
