    Spa dead in the water

    When I turn the spa on using the PDA the main filter pump turns off but nothing happens in the spa. The PDA reads 'spa on'.

    Did you try to run the spa in service mode? That might help

    Hmmm. So, did you go look at the Aqualink board to se if the pump indicator lite is on? I'm thinking that the motor is not coming on in spa mode, which would cause nothing to work Also, will your spa light and jet pump come on? We need to narrow it down.

    No pump indicator lite came on. I pushed the spa light and it came on. Same with the pool pump and the small pump came on when I pushed the Rav-Vac button.
    And the blower came on after pushing its button. All while in service mode.

    I was thinking who ever closed the pool did something with the Jandy Valve. I see no movement when I turn the spa on.

    Well, since I can not get the SPA to work I was wondering if I could close the SPA down by going as "service" and empty the spa then put in the drain and
    return plugs? That would allow me to just run the pool and not use the extra water that it take to fill the SPA.

    Got the spa to run, but noticed the pressure valve went up over what it would be if just running the pool.
