sump levels

What should the water level be in my sump? I have bio balls and don't know if the water should be in contact w the balls in the bottom of the chamber or not? Here's a pic of my sump.

It doesn't look like the water needs to be touching. The water level should be dictated by that partition before the return pump area.
