If the water level drops and the pump is running dry it can burn up. Like if you have a leak etc.If the pump is installed in the skimmer and the water level drops below the opening won't the pump burn out. That's where the installer want's to put it.
Most skimmers are equipped to INSTALL autofill - but they don't automatically come with.Most skimmers that I have seen have automatic refills
I shut everything off, the fish do fine, less headaches, a break from running water.My question was if the water drops the pump will burn out so how do i prevent that? I cant use an automatic refill kit because it will freeze in the winter. So i guess pond owners in cold climates must fill it with a hose that is temporary .
