I looked at a pic and I don't think it matters. Whichever one is most convenient for inlet and outlet.

i'd assume the output from the powerhead would go to the input of the uv sterilizer. Push it through, or suck it through, as long as water is going through at the correct rate i wouldn't assume any problem. I believe that there is a specified flowrate though. You should look into that one.
