So it's my first winter with my newly built pool, and I had a question as far as getting it ready for winter.
My pump has the FreezeGuard feature that kicks on when the outside temperature hits 35 degrees. My question though is about the automatic valves that turn my spa on and off. My pool has the Pentair EasyTouch system that turns the valves for me when I hit the "SPA" button, but in pool mode the spa returns and drains are shut off completely.
From what I've read online, I need to make sure that water is running through all the pipes when the FreezeGuard is on - including both spa pipes. I've read that some automatic valves switch (from pool to spa) automatically while FreezeGuard is on, but I wasn't sure how accurate that was. Can anyone confirm/deny that? If they don't, how do I make sure that water is running through all the pipes at the same time during the winter?
