Have your Pool on Alert while you Relax!
THE POOL SENTRY™ is used to maintain the water level of a pool, spa or pond automatically and unattended. When the Pool Sentry is removed from the box, it is easily assembled by threading the fill tube into the float valve. Snap the fill tube and float valve into the base and fill the base with small rocks or pea gravel. Next, snap the top cover onto the base and attach the garden hose (not included). Finally, adjust the float to the desired position.
The water stays on at all times when the Pool Sentry is in the pool. As the float drops, the water turns on. When the float reaches its set height, the water shuts off. The customer can adjust the float to any desired level, usually a point halfway on the tile line or skimmer.
Because the hose is under constant water pressure, it is essential that the customer uses a heavy-duty, reinforced hose.
When setting the float to the desired water level, is it the bottom or top of the float that sets the desired water level?
Correct, Works like a float on a toilet. You can adjust the height you want it to shut off at.
I have a Pool Sentry M-3000. Periodically it make a high pitch whinning noise when filling. It stops once the pool is full. How do I stop this noise other than turning it off at night ?
According to the manufacturer there are two options. You can turn down the water pressure going to the water filler. If that doesn't work, the other option is to replace the float valve assembly. Unfortunately we do not carry the float valve assembly because it costs as much as a new M-3000.
We have finally finished my pool deck renovations but we realized we have overlooked not installing a Levelor when we had the chance. We would love our pool to have a Levelor but don't want to crack up our deck again will this work?
The short answer is, definitely. This product is meant to be a no fuss solution to an issue that affects many pool owners. This product protects your pool filtering system from running dry which saves you money on equipment replacement plus no expensive install.

Pros: Simplicity reliability
My pool is 30 years old and has a small leak in the plumbing. I do not want to dig up concrete to fix it. Pool Sentry lets me keep the filter running without checking the water level. It is beautifully "low tech". No electronics, no battery, just connect a garden hose. I agree with the manufacturer: use a good quality hose. Pool Sentry is a bit costly for a float valve, but inexpensive when compared to replacing a pump motor.

Pros: Easy to hookup, keeps pool at correct level
Cons: Filler Hose can be in the way.
My Pool has a small leak that I cannot find. The auto-filler was efortless to hookup (about 5 mins ) and will extend the life of my pump by not letting the water level get to low.

In the 100 degree heat here in the Imperial Valley (Southern California)my 20+ year old pool has a slow leak, so keeping the water level up can be a challenge if we are out of town for a couple of days. the Pool Sentry is AWESOME!
