    Automatic Water Leveler

    I am in the middle of having a pool built. The PB, during the installation of the Automatic water leveler, they plug the 1/2" drain line. I notices this after they gunite it into the deck. When I question they about it, he says the drain does not work that well and we put a 11/2" hose at the equipment pad to drain the pool if it water gets too high. Any thoughts on what to do: can the plug that is glued into the the water leveler body be remover, make them replace the unit or don't worry about the drain feature and just use it as a water filler. The water leveler was part of a change order so I paid extra for it.

    Soon to be built: ~15,000 gallon in ground pool/spa Gunite with Marbletite Beach series finish, Pentair Intellitouch I7+3, Intellibrite LED lights, Sta Rite Intellipro VS 3050 pump, Star Rite PLM cartridge filter, IC40 SWG, Sta Rite Max E Therm 400K propane gas heater, Automatic water level

    If you paid extra for it I'd either make them fix it or they'd have to refund the cost. You shouldn't have to pay for something you can't use, especially since it was their fault.

    I've had a auto lever for 5 years. It has a 3/4" line for the drain connection. In this time I haven't had to manually drain the pool yet.

    It's possible they put another overflow drain in the pool wall that drains near the equipment pad. I would want both options (auto drain & manual drain). You might just ask them, where the auto-overflow drain is located since they plugged the other one.
