As the weather improves slightly I find myself running water into the pond every day. What is the best auto top up unit to buy ?

Lots of old school people just use cheap simple toilet ball systems.

Topping up about twenty mins most days. No leaks. It’s just the amount the drum is using I think

That was going to be my next question.

What drum do you use?
We got round ours by moving the cleaning pump into it’s own rank with an auto top up. Works a treat.

That's a lot of water how many times does the drum wash? Are you sure there is no leaks?

I have made a system where a dual waster sensor detects the water height and drains or fills accordingly. I have also made it so that it will automatically do a water change once a week and manually via a app. Which makes life easier
