Hello ePoolSupply supporters and fellow blog enthusiasts! Today I would like to go over an awesome pool product that can be added to the design of any new pool build. There are many different options out there but the one we will be going over today is designed and manufactured by our beloved friends over at Pentair and goes by the name of the Automatic Water Filler.
What Is an Auto Water Leveler?
An automatic water leveler is a device designed to be simple but has a huge impact on not just only your pool but spas as well. It was created to maintain the water in your pool without you needing to remember to do it yourself with the garden hose. This is even more important in climates with high evaporation rates (like here in Arizona) which is a very hot and dry state. This product was made specifically to counteract the effects of evaporation so, should the water level drop to low it will automatically fill it back up. Normally this unit is installed within the deck near the waterline and plumbed directly to your vacuum breaker.
Why is it Important to Maintain the Water Level?
Pools that have leaks will lose water at a rapid rate and pool equipment like the pool pump for example is designed to run with water going through it. If the water drops too low, it will no longer be able to travel through the skimmer which then leads to your equipment causing very severe damage that can cost you hundreds if not thousands of dollars in repairs.
