Hi Guys, I bought this skimmer and would like to know if anyone can tell me what the one valve is for. There are four pumps (for air) one inlet at the side nearer the top, the main outlet with a red valve and then a smaller valve that picks up or delivers water/?? from inside the bottom of the body, through a clear tube that is hard up against the bottom with a few hols in?? Hope someone can tell me if its an inlet or outlet??
You can just see it bottom right of the picture.
Any idea how much water this thing is rated for. thanks all

The valve is to regulate the water level within the skimmer body to set the skimmer "wet" or "dry"

There's a piece missing above valve Google reef octo dnw250 for better insight
