    Id say dirty as the clean side drops when drum dirty.so will add water before cleaning.instead of after which is when it wants topping up..andi

    I fitted one of those in my pond as it was the only place it would fit but the fish kept knocking the cup thing off so had to go back to the standard ballcock float valve.

    It was fitted in my pond not skimmer Andi lol

    The only skimmer I've got but it's currently not connected is a protein skimmer and the only type of fish you could fit in there are fish fingers
