Have combo Pool/Spa. Easytouch 8. don't know how previous owner had it programed, but I'm trying to figure out the best way.
Have a Inteliflo variable speed pump. This takes up "Pump" and Aux 1, 2, 3 for 4 different speeds. I normally just run it on the Filter Pump setting. The filter pump relay also supplies power to the Intellichlor. Aux 5 controls the Spa Jet Pump and Aux 6 controls the blower. The heater is also controlled via the relay in the EasyTouch via fireman's switch in Pentair MasterTemp.
There is a valve which controls the "pool return" to the spa. This supplies pool water to the fountain pipe and also a single jet to push water towards the overflow. This is connected to the "RETURN" connection on the Easytouch board.
My question is.
When I put things in Spa mode what should happen? Right now the pool pump turns off and the valve turns and then I have to activate the Aux 5 to get the spa jets going..
What I would like happen is keep the pool pump on and just turn the valve to prevent cold pool water from coming into the spa and let the spa pump recirculate the water through the heater in the spa?
what is the best way to program this?
