    Returning water to both pool and spa

    Regardless, spillover mode can be setup from the iAquaLink, so you could use it as you describe if you want to. If you don't see spillover mode, there is a dip switch you need to set to enable spillover mode.

    The Zodiac G3 cleaner is a suction side cleaner, so it doesn't care where the water is returning.
    I an trying to do this..........i want to suck from the Pool and partly return to spa approx 25% for the spillover, manually is easy ....but how
    do i do this with the newly installed jandy actuators????

    You need to adjust the cam on the actuator that controls the return flow. The cams can be adjusted to stop at any position. You want to adjust the cam so it stops with some flow going each place.
