Anyone know what this is called?

Our pool builder initially told us to put chlorine tabs in here, but they never seemed to dissolve completely and the water in there smelled bad...

I cleaned out the chlorine tabs, as I’m transitioning to TFP methods. Just wondering what this “part” is called and what function it serves... thanks!

That's your autofill pot. It adds water to the pool as the level gets lower. Works like a toilet bowl float valve.

Your PB is wrong! You should NEVER put chlorine tablets in there.

Figured as much...the tabs weren’t ever dissolving and making a mess in there.

Gonna stick with liquid chlorine anyways moving forward...

Thanks for the responses!

It kills me every day, to see the line of BS that is fed to people, that spend their hard earned money on a “dream pool”, only to be fed a total line of Crud!!!
