The whale can sit as low as you can get it. It has to be level because if you lower the scoop end, the sensor goes up and if you lower the sensor end the scoop goes up and cannot suck up as much water.
It has a built in overrun function so that when the sensor tells the pump to switch off, it continues to run for for a few seconds.
