Just like when you flush the toilet and the water rises back to a certain level… that’s what an automatic leveler does for a swimming pool. The advantage of this is that you don’t have to drag the hose out every time the water evaporates out of the pool or you back flush and the level gets too low. It is particularly handy for the hot summer months here in Arizona when water levels seem to drop literally overnight, and especially so on windy hot days.
And automatic leveler is a great option for many folks for saving time and effort on swimming pool maintenance. Although the installation can be a bit pricy — between $500 and $1,000 depending on where your water line is — maintenance on the system is a breeze. Again, much like the leveler in your toilet, you only need to replace the float and a few pieces every 4 to 5 years and the replacement parts are very inexpensive. The rest of the system should last a lifetime.
