Howdy - and thanks so much for this wonderful resource! I've learned quite a bit from you nice folks in the 3 months since owning our pool and I really appreciate the help!
However, I still have questions about a lingering issue with the construction/completion of our pool - specifically the autofill feature. Our PB installed the feature, but "forget" to plumb it to a water supply. (They also forgot several other things, but that's another issue.)
To what should the the water supply line be connected? Our choices are an underground connection into the irrigation supply water or to a hose bibb on the side of the house. The former is more difficult to do while the latter is more unsightly as the bibb is next to a seating area and will be hard to hide. The PB suggests connecting it to the bibb, but I've lost that lovin' feeling with them and don't know if I trust anything they say anymore.
If connected to the underground source, I assume it's necessary to have a manual shut off available for maintenance purposes. Right?
Again - thanks so much!
