    Autofill question

    I've replaced the float assembly and the anti-siphon valve for the autofill system and it is working again.

    This may be a silly question, but I was wondering about how far open I should leave the valve supplying the autofill. Will leaving it all the way open put undue pressure on the float assembly over time or is that not an issue?

    Re: Autofill question

    Won't be an issue because at equilibrium the float valve will still have the same pressure acting on it regardless of how open the shutoff valve is.
