    SLAM a SPA

    Thanks for that link, that's very interesting. I have a Bromine pool and since it is indoors, it has been easy to maintain. However, reading the following proposed changes to the labeling of Sodium Bromide says: That last point about UV. Does the sun's UV rays count in this, or are they...

    Proper Filtering of Spill Over spa

    Thanks for your response! My spa runs about 1C hotter than the pool (29C Spa | 28C Pool). To get it up to 100F like recommended (or 37C) shouldn't take too long. I have my first guests over at our new place for a little swim tomorrow so I'll turn up the thermostat during the day and reverse the...

    Proper Filtering of Spill Over spa

    Oh excellent, I like that idea. I haven't had a chance to test it yet, but I suspect that heating the spa from 85 to 100 shouldn't take much longer than a few hours. So I can heat the hot tub on demand and not have to worry about wasting energy for the rest of the hours/days.

    Proper Filtering of Spill Over spa

    I was thinking that too, but I suppose it'll require more energy as cold water will constantly be heated up. Whereas the other method will only require minimal energy to top up the heat.

    Proper Filtering of Spill Over spa

    They are manual valves, I can definitely get you some photos when I get home tonight. What you're saying makes sense. I suppose it will have to be an on-demand system where the hot tub is heated when needed only. This does have the benefit of being much more cost effective in that I'm not...

    Proper Filtering of Spill Over spa

    Hey again, I have an indoor pool which has a "spill-over" spa attached to the pool in such a way that the top little bit of water in the spa will spill over into the pool. The pool and the spa run off of the same filter, pump circulation, and heater. I have valves that control water from the...

    Best way to heat spillover Spa?

    I'm a new pool owner, so don't take my comments with 100% confidence. My spa and pool are the same in yours in which the spa overflows into the pool. I also have a valve system so that I can choose what water is directed to the heater, and where the water from the heater goes. In your...
