Our pool was supposed to have a built-in automatic water top-up system but the constructor "overlooked" or forgot to install it. He has since been sacked by us for that and other problems.
Does anyone know of a suitable retrofit system that can be installed (e.g. connecting into the skimmer) without emptying the pool? If so, from where can they be obtained?
My plumber has suggested using a toilet cistern float arrangement either in or located by the skimmer and feeding water into it, with an overflow pipe. This will involve digging up some of the pool surround in order to lay piupes for the water supply and overflow drainage we don't want above-ground pipework. Nor do we want to hang a hosepipe over the pool edge!
Any sensible suggestions will be gratefully received.
Thank you in advance.
