Are you watering the clay in summer?

The tennis court is whats called a hydro court. There are perforated PVC pipes run underneath the clay and they drip water out of them, this keeps the surface damp.

Right, the auto fill controls the supply to the perforated pipe. The term level is correct as there is no measureable pressure on the perforated pipe.

You have some nice projects, nice work!
