    Understanding valve positions

    New owner. What positions do I keep the valves in when not in use? I have an elevated spa with a waterfall that overflows into pool. Can I just keep the Suction on pool and Return on the spa. Not sure why it was always pool for both suction and return.

    I leave mine set so it's 100% suction on pool and 80-20 pool-spa on return. If you have a bad check valve, you may see the spa drain back into the pool overnight.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
