    Pool water fill valve? Fill port is not in skimmer basket.

    There is a fill water port/pipe that runs from the outdoor spikett to the pool side. Is there some device that I can fashion to this to make it auto fill the pool as needed? I know of the float devices that work in the skimmer.. is there one that works for the side?

    the hose is burried under the concrete to the pool, but the first 5 feet is exposed and connected to the outside faucet through a splitter.
    Inground Gunite/Plaster pool with spa. Estimated 31,000 gallons.

    This one, https://www.amazon.com/Premium-Stayp...YM9G31AZ5KQY6D is just some pvc and a $10 stock tank auto filler from Tractor Supply like this Little Giant Trough-O-Matic Plastic Float Valve - For Life Out Here

    I think I might just put a hose timer from Lowes on the faucet and set it to run some number of minutes per day. Shop Mister Landscaper 1-Program Digital Hose End Timer at Lowes.com
