    Spa draining when trying to use it

    Hi Guys

    I have an inground spa/pool. I haven't used the spa for almost a year. Today I noticed that when I try to heat the spa the water drains from it. I assume it's draining into the pool.

    Can anyone suggest trouble shooting action?

    Many thanks

    I would assume a valve is wrong. You should probably have two valves to turn. One directs pump output to pool or spa. The other changes suction from pool or spa. Sounds like you have suction for spa and output to pool.

    Assuming you have an automation system, you could have a bad pressure side actuator.

    ok I had the actuator valve replaced at the time and now it's doing the same darn thing Wonder if it's under warranty?
