    spa plumbing detaills

    Hello friends, I am from India
    just joined TFP, while researching on Google, and found it to be very informative

    Recently made a pool in the house, now that was easy with the plumbing and fitments, now my friend wants me to make a pool with spa at his site.
    pool is not a problem but got entangled with the spa part.

    requires round shaped 10 jets placed 5 on upper level and other 5 lower. I would be highly obliged, if some one could help me with the technical details.

    In India there are practically no know how how to go about.

    I have also put together quite a bit of information here:

    Hydraulics 101 - Have you lost your head?

    I can also help but need a lot detail about the equipment you plan to use, especially the spa jets. Different types of jets require different flow rates so that needs to be decided first. Also, with jets, you will have a hard time using a single pump to run all jets. Even the smallest jets require 10 GPM each so 100 GPM total so you would need a very large pump for that.

    Thank you, mas985

    The information on post, thread and the articles referred were of great help, and i manage to find a supplier who has forwarded me the jets products, and mentioned the flow rates also 17 liters/min that is about 4.5 GPM. file attached for reference, but the expansion kit for gunite installation is not available with him.
    i have to figure out how to install the kit in the spa concrete.
    and yes we here have not gunite facilities the shell of pool and spa has to be done by on place casting method. forwarding the spa air water tee and jets available here.

    regards

    You can put it on the cloud (Google Drive, OneDrive, DropBox, etc) and post a link to it.

    Those are extremely low flow jets. I don't think I have ever seen a spa jet with that low of a flow rate. I am not sure how well they will work but it shouldn't be an issue to run 10 at once on a single pump.
