    Hotub water draining slowly...

    Our hot tub water is draining slowly out of our hot tub. I am not sure if we have a leak or if maybe there is a bad o-ring somewhere. The hot tub water level is about 7 inches higher than the rest of our pool. The water level in the hot tub tends to drop by about 6-9 inches over the course of a day. Then when the pump kicks on again it fills back up. I was hoping there might be someone out there that could give me some troubleshooting steps or recommend a possible area to focus on in order to resolve the issue.

    The most common reason for that to happen is the check valve between the spa and pool is leaking by. It's either failed or something is stuck in it.

    Thanks for the guidiance. Based on your suggestion I was able to find this YouTube video that walked me through how to repair it. Wanted to post it in case others were experiencing the same issue.
