It has been hot (over 100) and dry in Texas. We plan to take a one week vacation. At first I thought that with a SWG we would not have a problem leaving the pool. However, I am not sure that we can go a week without adding fill water to the pool.
Last night I read user reviews of the Marpac Pool Keeper Water Leveler and the Pool Sentry. About half of the reviewers do not recommend either product. Several pool owners said that when they returned from a trip they found that they had flooded their yard or a neighbor's yard. Most users said that the devices were cheaply made and work for only one or two years.
TFP posters tend to be more experienced and knowledgeable pool users. I am interested in your experience with automatic pool fillers. Are there any reliable units that do not cost a fortune? Can the Pool Keeper or Pool Sentry be installed so that they will work in a satisfactory manner? Should I return to floating pucks? :>((
