connecting garden fountain to hose bib and timer

last year

Hi all, I have new, smallish (48 inches) 3 tier garden fountain that I have hooked up to a solar pump. Am happy with that but am getting tired having to use the hose and sprayer to fill it up.

I'd like to connect it to my hose bib with a timer. I've got the y-splitter on the hosebib and I have a timer and there is a drain outlet on the big tier (is threaded) so figure I would connect there.

Do I just connect a flexible pipe to the hosebig and then connect at the other end? Here is a link to an article/photo that got me thinking:

Just wondering if anyone else has done this.

thanks for any suggestions

Here is a picture of the fountain:
