Got a new Bubble Magus roller. I was barely able to fit it in my small sump. I put a couple of wood rulers across the euro braced side and the filter is hanging on the ruler :) slightly tilted.
Currently the float valve is about 3" higher than the water level. Is that too much?

I’m just in the process of setting mine up. did you manage to sort this? I’m guessing that 3” was too much?

It's perfect, I also managed to find an old skimmer stand that I was not using, that works nicely with the roller filter. How is yours working?

Ime the higher the better because ot allows more pressure to develop. This lets your filter roll last longer.
