I am trying to figure out a way to add some sort of auto fill option to my already completed pool. Our lovely builer obviously did not know that an autofill is a must when you have an infinity edge. The catch basin is about 18" deep (staying above wall suction lines) and is 17' long and 2' wide which by my calculations even with that all the way full, it will only raise my pool level 3/4" with my 650 surface sq footage and we lose about that from evaporation on a hot day.
The easiest solution I can come up with is tapping into our sprinkler line that runs in our planters that are attached to the pool. That way im running a line 10" above the decking that can mostly be covered up by flowers. My question is, is it safe to you irrigation water as fill water daily? I have always been using my regular culinary water which is the same that comes from the kitchen tap. If its safe than I can just work it out with my sprinkler time to keep the water level close.
If anyone has any other options of some how connecting into the equipment and adding water that way I am all ears. My infinity catch basin is almost always shaded so I want to run that on my daily program to keep an growth from happening
