So the wife decided to use the hot tub today. (spill over spa) without me there.
And when she turned everything off, she accidentally left the suction coming from the spa and the return going into the pool. Of course this emptied the spa and had the motor running on air for about 3 hours or so
The only real damage was a couple of fittings were leaking. A bit of teflon tape and re-tightening everything had things running smooth again pretty quickly thank goodness.
BUT... While I was doing this and re-teflon taping and tighting, when I would turn the filter off and on to test, when it was off the gasket would fill up with dirty water. It looked like it was full of DE. When I put the system back on, that (Im assuming) DE emptied back into the spa making it filthy.
I ran it for a while and cleared it out and then turned the filter off and it happened again. The gasket filled up with DE water.
Anybody know why this might have been happening? I dont know if turning it off again would produce the same result. Im just running it now with the spa off... But things seem ok.
Thanks in advance!!!
