Just so, what is auto fill on a pool?
Swimming Pool Auto-Fills or Automatic Water Levelers The Pool Auto-Fill is an automatic pool water leveler, designed to maintain the optimum water level in pools, spas and fountains.
Likewise, what is a pool water leveler? Automatic swimming pool water leveler systems are designed to automatically adjust the water level of swimming pools. Leveler systems have a float mechanism that monitors water levels. Once it gets too low, water is automatically added to the pool until it reaches safe levels again.
Beside above, how does a pool fill valve work?
It works using the same basic mechanism as a toilet filler. When the water level drops too low, the float drops low enough to open the water valve to refill the pool. When the pool has enough water the float rises and shuts off the flow of water. These mechanisms can deteriorate with age and not function correctly.
What is a pool float valve?
The float valve in the bottom is designed to shut off the skimmer and keep it from sucking air into the pump if the water level in the pool gets too low. On some systems where the skimmer and drain are both plumbed into the skimmer, the float valve serves to regulate the flow of water from the skimmer and the drain.
