Automatic valves for topping off your water are great if your home's water isn't chlorinated.
I would be careful that such a valve doesn't jamb and cause the water to run constantly. That would be a waste and strain your well pump.
That is why I hooked it up to my irrigation system...non-chlorinated. I have had this system in use for several years without malfunction and the container is screened over to keep out debris.

Evaporation can be a big issue here in Florida and adding water was becoming time consuming because you had to "baby sit" the hose so as not to overfill the pond. During the hot months this could be every 3 days or so.
