Hello Everyone i wanted to start off by saying i never truly wanted a pool in my new home but me and my wife fell in love with the house so the pool came with it as a bonus.So being a complete noob to the regiments of a pool maintenance came on fast. With in the first three weeks the pool got green on me, after my first trip to the local pinch a penny got all the chemicals needed for cleaning ran the pump 24hrs and done the next day the pool looked like glass.kept it up with no issues for two months, finally it rained for a week straight and all heck broke loose went to the penny i had to buy stabilizer and alkalinity. Cleaned the filter that was at 30psi instead of 15psi the filter was borderline black i pulled it out and cleaned not only the filter but the pump basket as well put everything back after cleaning and dumping and mixing the chemicals. Ran pump for 24hrs.
The the pool was a mirror clean, My wife had pointed out that the pool spa water line was low i ignored her and went about my business. 15min later she was right the spa had drained down to pool level.I turned on the pump and tried different things to fix it but all results lead to spa draining. I just don't know what i'm doing but i don't want to spend big money to have some guy come and turn a valves. Plus i want to learn, can some one please help see what i did wrong so that the spa stops draining when the pump is off.
STEPS I HAVE TRIED:
- Turned MAIN SPA DRAIN OFF
- Turned the pool RETURN OFF and the SPA RETURN ON
- Turned the pool RETURN ON and SPA RETURN OFF
- Turned pool and spa RETURN OFF
- Turned poll and spa RETURN ON
