Not a chance, that would be even worse than the pump Gabe ran it with which was way undersized. Also many of the recommended pumps will run that skimmer with a simular power consumption of the Reeflo Skimmer. It would take you several years to recoup any savings even if there are any. Besides, think about the skimmer you wanted 5 years ago compared to the one you want now. Now thing of the skimmer that might be available in 5 more years......
