    Help determining valve setup and spa drain when pump off new to me pool

    Oh dirk sorry missed your reply. Right, I doubt we'd run pool heater regularly. So many warm days here, the house is usually pooled out before summer is over. heating it only shifts the usage block right or left, doesn't seem to extend it which is why never added it to the last one. But who...

    Help determining valve setup and spa drain when pump off new to me pool

    thanks for the info and help guys. Yeah guess i'll leave it. Also asked the local pool supply who does repairs too when i went by to grab something and didn't get the drift it was unusual in the area as long as the pool was filtered. I'll move on to more cleanup and automation reading next.

    Help determining valve setup and spa drain when pump off new to me pool

    thanks for the assist. Yeah automation is high on the cleanup list. Correct 2 pumps, heater is on spa pump. there's 4 spa jets, one return in the spa (besides the fountain thing). I think the big question is should this heater be unfiltered, if that's recommended or not lifespan wise...

    Help determining valve setup and spa drain when pump off new to me pool

    looked more today. Yeah don't think there's anything special just how it was plumbed. Only fresh glue joints from heater replacement are right there at the heater, so doubt any major plumbing change. Wierd it's a custom home , while distressed the owner who built it doesn't look to have cut...

    Help determining valve setup and spa drain when pump off new to me pool

    thanks, yes i want to look at automation next, i gotta get caught up on all that. i was wondering about that unfiltered spa jets with the heater. maybe it's due to flow rates and the spinner jets? I didn't even know they had blower jets for these, all new to me. I'll do some reading up on...

    Help determining valve setup and spa drain when pump off new to me pool

    Hi dirk, thanks for the response i think that nails it, i'll play bit more with the setup today or so but i think you're right too. yesterday that was sorta what i was thinking but the spa was confusing me, Last night i closed spa return and the valve i thought was spa main, that position...

    Help determining valve setup and spa drain when pump off new to me pool

    Hi, wonder if someone can help me with a new to me pool, my last one was simple 2 returns with no spa and that was that. In the valve pic i've figured out thus far returns (left batch of 4) [spa wall jet | sconces | pool return | spa fountain thingy in center] suction (right batch of 4) [...
