    Intex Auto fill...

    I have the idea for long time to build a auto fill for my Intex pool, the same way like this video shows

    Have any of you done something similar, opinions in favor or against, let's heard what you have to say...
    8,400 gal Intex, 3K GPH pump, 16" sand filter, SWG CG-28669, TF100 test kit, speed stir, K-1766 Taylor salt test.

    Re: Intex Auto fill...

    I saw the thread last night and did not watch the video until now. That is a nice idea.

    I was thinking you could do something similar but only use a small hole in the side wall (like extra return), basically like in-ground is done. And connecting an external bucket to the pool through a hose/pipe to the small hole. Could use an in-ground autofill bucket and valve, just have to figure out how to mount it externally to the pool.

    The thing is that I have a extra Skimmer and didn't know what to do with it...
