    I would put it on the opposite side to help push ditritus to the overflow.

    You could get by with it on the overflow side if you place it low, without a dry box it wont work though, it'll get wet.

    Is there any room on the side of the overflow box? If no, it's going to to hard to put it on that end..

    I have mine on the overflow side, but my overflow is external and not terribly deep... however like others have said there's no way to put them on the overflow side.
