Very small difference. The valve itself, when wide open, does provide a slight bit of restriction. It's a small, but noticeable, difference from running it w/out the valve at all. Also, I may be able to see this more because I'm using a bigger pump. The entire skimmer body is pretty much filled with bubbles, and they do escape into the sump due to the volume of the flow going through the skimmer.

Nothin' left to do but smile, smile, smile....
