    Autofill/Level Plumbing

    When I had my pool built last year I had the builder put in an autofill, but just stub it out. I am going to connect it up this weekend, but wanted a sanity check on the approach.

    The autofill is a CMP25504 and they ran a 1" line back to my foundation which is just capped.

    I also picked up a 3/4" Zurn/Wilkins 34-720A Pressure Vacuum Breaker (PVB) to prevent any backflow.

    My plan is the following:

    - Plumb an extra 1/2" supply line to a hose bib
    - Use stainless steal washing machine supply hose from hose bib to 1/2 - 3/4 adapter into Zurn PVB inlet
    - Attach Zurn PVB outlet to the autofill 1" line with a 3/4" to 1" coupling

    Anyone see any issues with this or have other suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    You do not have to use the stainless steel line, to save $$ you can just use pvc but either way will work just fine

    Might want to take winterizing this setup into consideration to make it easy when you close the pool

    I have my auto fill connected to a 3/4 pvc pipe that goes to a standard anti-siphon valve. Like the kind on your sprinklers. Manually operated nothing special. I leave it set to 1/2 way on and the float does the rest.
