Hi. Total pool newbie. Regtangular, 80's vintage pool with square inground spa built-in. I am reasonably sure the spa shares the same pump/filter as the pool.
Here's my dilemma: when the pump is running, the water level of the spa goes all the way to the top and spills over into the pool. I am trying to figure out a way to set my "diverter valves" to keep the water level of the spa equivalent to the pool level. We NEVER use the inground spa (waaay too much to heat and we have an above ground spa elsewhere) and we would prefer to keep the water in the pool.
I hope I'm making sense. Every morning we walk out to an overflowing spa and the pool water level is down about a half an inch. It tends to starve the skimmer so we have to put water in the pool to compensate.
Anywho, I'm hoping somebody can educate me on the proper terms involved here. There seems to be this diverter valve that AUTOMATICALLY moves when the pump is on and I don't dare force it to move for fear of breaking it.
Oh man, I just re-read my message and it's clear I'm a pool dunce. Thing is, I'm pretty handy but I'm just so over my head with this pool at the moment. Am happy to take pictures of whatever if folks can steer me somewhere good.
Thanks so much!
