    Spa Malfunction Help

    My pool flow is good, but my spa is only trickling into the pool. Jandy valves engage the spa but nothing happens.

    Last year, a screw became loose from the bottom of the spa and entered the system through the sump. I found the rusty screw in the pump basket.

    The pool has a new motor and impeler and I removed an object from the paramount water valve. The pop-ups are working and the pool water flow is good, but the spa water flow is bad.

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix the spa flow?

    The pool is clear and blue and all of my levels are normal. However, I'm having to change the filter every day because of pressure increase. It's currently running at 20 psi.

    Thanks!

    Are there separate pumps for the pool and spa?
    If not, What is the filter pressure when in pool and spa modes?
    When selecting spa do all the discharge valves (not just the actuators) move the full distance?
    If there are two, post a pic of the equipment pad.

    I found the problem i gad put a new check valve in (the wrong way) so it was blocking the flow
