    If you are trying to drain the spa, then put the suction valve so that it comes from the spa (normal spa mode) and the return valve so it returns to the pool (normal pool mode). But make sure to stop the pump when the spa is drained.

    Thank you for replying..it works..here what I did..I close the pool intake and open the spa intake valve and turned the spa valve off. It did drain the spa but water was still coming from the spa jets..is it normal or any other setting to do..water was drained to only lower jet level in the spa.please advise
