Actually the flow rate through the sump does affect skimmer performance. The slower the flow rate through the sump, the larger the amount of NEW aquarium water the skimmer will be able to process with each pass. Your skimmer will be more efficient if you slow the flow rate down to 2-3 times the system volume per hour max.

Hope that helps
