Hi all. New to the forum. Pretty sure I will be here a lot . Please let me know if I am posting this in the right place.
I am installing a fiberglass pool with a built in small spillover spa. I will be using:
Pentair variable speed 3 hp pump (011018,
Pentair clean & clear 320 sq ft. cartridge filter (160340)
Easy touch controller (automation) with IC20 Saltwater Chlorinator bundle and wireless remote.(520544)
and a small electric heater for the spa only.
(haven't decided on which one yet. recommendations?)
I want to plumb it and use actuators so that I can lower the level in the spa to not spill over and engage heater for separate use and heating of spa with easy touch automation.
This is all fairly new to me. Is there a PLUMBING DIAGRAM available to help me plumb for this configuration with shared equipment?
Will I need more than the 2 actuators that come with the easy touch system to achieve this?
It is my understanding that with automation you don't need a spa make-up valve? Read this somewhere on this site.
I found this diagram http://www.poolcenter.com/medias/sys...iagram_pg2.jpg
would all I have to do is relocate the heater to the spa side of the return actuator and eliminate the make-up valve (was told you don't need makeup valve with automation?) or am I missing the point of what I am trying to achieve here?
All help appreciated..
