New to the forum here but have already gained alot of knowledge from the site. A big thank you to those that support and ad their experience to the uneducated masses.... ( Like me )
So here's my crazy idea:
Add a portable ( dimension one ) spa to my existing 9' X 19' Above ground ( Secard ) pool.
The pool has a Clear Water 2 100cfm cartridge type filter system with a 1hp pump, Which does a good job on the 6000 gal above ground pool but, is only 110v.
The Spa is as stated a 350 Gal Dimension One Spa .
Other equipment I have on hand:
miniMax NT 400k pool Heater
Sta-Rite S7M120 300sq ft filtration area filter.
Jacuzzi ( AO Smith ) 2.0 hp pump
220v already Wired to pump area ( for the spa)
So the idea is to hook all of this up together, so as to make it :
A) Easier to heat spa in short amount of time
B) easier to maintain water chemistry.
I have attached a basic plumbing schematic below to give a general idea of what I am trying to do.
So here are my questions... (and I did search for similar projects on this forum so if I missed one that explains the ins and outs of doing this I apologize.)
Is this feasible? will the spa work ( be able to drain as fast as the jets fill it ) connected to the pool via plumbing versus a spillway?
Are there some obvious pitfalls I am over looking?
Should I just keep the Clear Water 110v system and ad a heater?
Hoping that this is doable and plan on sharing via pictures etc my progress.
Any constructive thoughts are greatly appreciated!
