Thread: Spa maintenance.

  1. Back To Top    #1

    Spa maintenance.

    Never gave this much thought but my SWG percentage when my pump is on spa mode is at 10%. Is that reasonable? Should I adjust based on bather load? I alter my pool mode percentage as needed based on season/sun/bather load etc but leave the spa one as is. My spa is connected to my pool and have never had a problem with either but want to make sure that percentage was reasonable.

    Thanks.

    Test it! That's the easiest way to determine if it's too much or not enough.

    Where is the SWG in the plumbing? Before the Spa/pool return valve, or after?

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    The valve to divert to the spa is after the swg, so before.
