    Auto Fill Install Question

    So they shot my shell yesterday and I already have a regret. My fill line (connected to my sprinkler system) runs about 2' under the ground and then up into the pool wall and out onto my sun shelf. That is just the way it worked out. So my question is can I install an auto fill when the pipe would have to go down (after the auto fill bucket) and then back up to get into the pool? Rather than the straight pipe into the pool. I think it should be fine (don't allow air to get in the line) but I just want someone with more experience to reassure me. Or to tell me it won't work and don't try it. Thanks

    If I'm understanding correctly, it will work fine. As long as the pool and autofill valve (in the bucket) are at the same level, it doesn't matter if the pipe connecting them goes down then up.
