    Bad Check Valve - Spa drains when we turn it on?

    Hi,

    New to pools.

    I have a pool with a spa. Today when we turned on the spa it drained after about 5 minutes of use and hot water ended up in the pool. I think I may have a bad check valve? . The springs in the upper left are rotating and rusted like they are broken. Let me know what you guys think. I was planning to replace it myself from leslies to keep costs down.
    It appears I need a 2" Jandy Valve


    Here is a link to a video of the valve

    Welcome to TFP.

    Replaced the valve for $39.99 (they also call it a flapper valve) and problem is fixed.

    Sorry to not get to you quicker but to confirm: Yes, that is called a Jandy check valve and easy to replace.
