    Question about valves...

    Hello everyone,

    I just recently bought a house with a pool. The pool was built in 2007. Other than the type of surface(gunite) and a very few basic things(how to vacuum, clean and shock the pool), I am fairly clueless.

    Attached is a picture of the valves. My question is, what valves need to be turned in what direction in order for the heater to do its job in the pool and spa? In addition, all the pool returns in this particular pool are above water and act as a fountain. There are three, one is a beach bubbler thing and the other two shoot out from one side. Not sure is that really is necessary, but I was told by a guy that it was unusual to not have any under the water level.

    One of the actuators motors is broken, a tech has ordered the part and will fix that next week, but as of now is manual. It is for the spa main drain.

    A wider angle photo would help here, along with a list of the equipment you have, but it is still going to be guessing to some degree on our part.
    Indoor 20x40 35,000 gallon vinyl pool with 1.5 HP 2 speed Jandy FloPro pump, Hayward EC75 Perflex DE filter, 11 4x12 Techno-Solis solar panels w/ Aquasolar controller, Aquabot Turbo T Robot Cleaner. Also LMI metering chlorine dispenser pump and HotSpring Jetsetter

    The pool pump is a Jandy, as well as the filter and heater.

    Attached are two more pics, I hope they are better.
