What is auto fill on a pool?
An autofill works by keeping track of the pool level and filling it as it becomes necessary. An autofill works similarly to the float in a toilet. After the toilet flushes, the float makes sure that the level returns to its correct level.
How do you turn off automatic pool filler?
If you have an autofill, let’s turn off its water supply. Find the pool’s backflow device which is usually located at the back or the side of the house. The pool’s water supply line is usually the first line out of the pool’s backflow. Turn its shut-off valve to the off position.
How do I control the water level in my pool?
Pool water level control sensors work by using 2 rods that come into contact with the pool waters surface. The energized sensor rods close the water filler valve by making a circuit when both sensors are in contact with the water.
How high should pool water be on skimmer?
The level at which pool skimmers function properly is between one third and about half way up the opening of the pool skimmer. If the water level is too high the debris floating next to the opening may pass by without being pulled into the skimmer.
How does pool float valve work?
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.
How do I adjust my pool autofill valve?

Why is the water level in my pool low?
If the Water Level Is Too Low
It is also the more common problem, by far. Simple evaporation and active swimmers splashing water out of the pool can both cause a pool’s water level to drop a lot. Vacuuming, backwashing, and leaks in the liner and filter components can also cause a drop in water level.
