The Flip N Fill Garden automatic pool water filler or leveller is designed to be installed on existing pools where no provision for water level control has been made. This version connects to a garden hose (hence its name), and operates in the same way as the permanently installed version. It is a simple and effective means of achieving automatic water levelling for any pool after completion. The hose simply connects to the valve through the cap in the centre of the lid. You disconnect the hose, remove the lid and valve assembly to gain access to the skimmer basket.
The valve system employs a simple but extremely sensitive float system that moves up and down relative to the water in your pool. When the pool water falls away to a level preset by the pool builder, the falling float triggers the valve to open and allows water to flow into the skimmer box and hence fills the pool. When the water again rises and raises the float up, the unit resets and stops the water flow.
Each Flip N Fill unit comes with three rings to accommodate several types of Skimmer boxes with varying size lids. The option of using one of three rings means this unit will fit more than 95% of all known skimmer boxes. Choose the ring that fits the particular skimmer box, and forget the rest.
The Flip N Fill lid is constructed of high density PVC as one of the major causes of failures is impact failure. The FNF is constructed to last with denser material and ribbing to take direct impact. It has also been designed with ribbing to enhance grip when stood on, and has two handy finger grips for easy removal when access to the skimmer box is required.

Long term test reportBy: Barry on 30 January 2019After 4 years of use its worked a treat BUT needed one modification. The black cup in which the floater moves in had to be surrounded in a pool debris sock to keep out small debris such as tree seeds which would cause the plunger mechanism to lock up and your pool to overflow. Other than that, no issues
Support tubes are just a bit short for my poolBy: George Curran on 20 September 2018Unfortunately depth from skimmer cover to water level is too much for the unit ss supplied. It shouldn't be a problem to find some more PVC pressure pipe and extend them, but could be a problem for not so handy people. Recommend providing tubes that are 100mm longer or putting couplers and extension tubes in the box. I look forward to using it.
