Reef Octopus DNW-110-6520B skimmer installation help

Looking for help on how to plumb to the water inlet on this model of skimmer. Do you need an additional water pump to feed water supply and, if so, where in the sump would you place the pump (photos of setup are always appreciated) Thanks.

What size tubing did you use from the maxijet to the inlet of the skimmer?
