There are lots of benefits in having an auto fill and drain system for your water feature. But first, perhaps I should explain what an auto fill system is. Basically, it’s a system which a professional will install in your fountain and run a water line to it. The float on the system works much like the one in your toilet. It monitors the water level, and as the float sinks, it triggers a water refill until it is at a proper level. It frees you from needing to manually refill your fountain. Here are other benefits for installing an auto refill system:
1-The water level will stay consistent which will allow for consistent water sounds.
2-As the water enters the fountain, it is run through a filter which removes minerals in the water, thus helping to eliminate white scale build up.
3-No manual labor needed to add water as it evaporates.
4-No chance of water level getting too low and burning out the pump
5-Cleaner and fresher water making better water flow
6-Less weekly maintenance to keep the fountain clean
7-Longer periods (extra 1-2 more months) between complete cleaning of water fountain
8-Able to use regular water instead of distilled
9-Less need for water chemicals to keep the fountain clean
10-Over flow drain prevents the fountain from ever being over filled and spilling on your wall or floor
There you have it. When purchasing a floor fountain or wall fountain you may want to see if this can be added to your fountain.
