I had an incident a month ago because i didnt adjust my skimmer correctly before i left for a month and it overflowed about 30 gallons of water on the floor at 3ham and i wasnt there...my poor gf had to deal with that..

So i didnt want it to happen again so i got a used auto top off unit and put the float in the bucket were the water would overflow if ever it does it again...if the water goes up in the bucket it will automatically shut the skimmer off..just thought id share that....
