I have a couple questions about the Aqua Rite system. We haven't used the system yet, but are planning on starting it up within the next couple weeks.
1. Looking at the Aqua Rite installation manual, the plumbing section indicates that there must be at least a 12" straight pipe run before the flow switch. I'm wondering about the location of mine, since it looks to be attached directly to the return from the heater. Can somebody comment on the location?
2. The manual also mentions 4 possible ways to install the system. I am curious about this part:
We have a spillover from our spa that is spilling over constantly when the pump is running, since we leave the valve for the spa's footjets open all the time. Would that indicate that we should use one of the two suggested configurations (#2, #3) as shown in the image below?For pool/spa combination systems with spillover, use configurations #2 or #3 above to allow chlorination of both the pool and spa during spillover but preventing overchlorination when operating the spa only.
