    Auto Filler Location

    Hello, I'm am currently in the build process and the plumbers installed the auto filler right next to the pool (similar to a skimmer). I would prefer to have the auto filler back by my equipment and clear up more deck space.

    As long as the filler is set at the same height, does it really matter how far it is from the pool? My pad is 40 feet prom the pool.

    Thanks for any help...

    The auto fill should be next to the pool. It should be recessed in the deck. There should be an anti suction valve for it back at the pad. At the pool it should be something like this:

    No auto fill is perfect all of them tend to fill more when the pool is choppy. If you are asking if you could run a open line from the pool to a recessed well at the pad --- yes you could. But -- that could have reduced performance -- but it might not matter autofills are on 24-7 so things tend to even out. Its worth talking about. Ask your PB.
