Sorry Pasfur, I read your comment above and thats all I could think of
One way I COULD see this working, is purchasing a single, large/powerful pump, and splitting it's output... have it drive both the skimmer as well as the return plumbing to your tank, but not the skimmer in-line with the return... have the skimmer's output directed back into the sump. I have heard of people using a single powerful pump to power their whole system, by driving the pump into a manifold and tapping off it for whatever they want to drive (skimmer, UV, reactor, chiller, return, etc... probably need to use valves on each tap to control the amount of flow through each).
