    Define add on?

    I added one to mine. Involved drilling a hole through the pool and plumbing in the bucket and float valve.

    was thinking of device with no plumbing; like the Sentry; just attach to coping and connect hose

    Ah. Adding a simple timer on a hose to add a little water each day might be more reliable.
