I'm not entirely new to the pool world but I could use a brush up on the BBB method and some help figuring out the maze of plumbing at this new house.
Its a 15'x15' square, not sure the average depth yet plus a 6'x6' spa built in next to the pool (can overflow into the pool or there is a pipe that can be opened up to share water with the pool. I'm guessing somewhere around 10k gallons. Pebbletec with pop up cleaners, both the pool and spa have a floor drain and skimmer each. (I'll have to update the signature later)
Any tips for the spa side of things? I've never owned one before, I'm guessing that if I maintain the pool as recommended on this site, the spa should be OK?
My guess on the plumbing maze:
1. Return from pool skimmer/drain
2. Return from spa skimmer/drain
3. Supply after filter, I think it goes to 4, heater inlet?
4. Heater inlet
5. Heater outlet maybe goes to 6?
6. Supply to pool and spa
7. Pool aerator
8. To spa jets in the walls
9. To pop ups, both spa and pool pop ups I think?
10, 11, 12, not really sure what these are. 10 is labeled 'From cleaner'. 11 is not labeled. 12 is labeled 'Spa clean'
13. air control for spa jets.
Whats the best configuration for low maintenance? draw from both 1 and 2 and supply to all the pop ups #8?
