I return to the TFP once again. We have lived in houston for almost 4 years to a house that has a large pool (40,000 gallons) and an attached spa with a water spillway into the pool. When we moved in, the previous owner said that the hot tub had no heater and that it had been removed years ago. At the time we didn't care, it wasnt why we were buying the home. Now, four years later, we are replacing the deck all around the spa and thought...if we are ever going to get the spa going, this is the time, while everything is exposed.
Here is the question. What would it entail to get this spa going, how do the jets function (is it part of the pump), how do we keep all of the heated water from spilling into the pool, and is this a monstrous repair? Does the Heater go near the spa, or with the rest of the pool equipment? Our pool doesn't have or need a heater.
I know these are probably lame questions, but with all of the awesome help I have been given on TCP, I thought it couldn't hurt to ask before we lay the TREX next weekend.
