    New build - spa losing water

    We have just had our pool start up and we noticed that when the system (pump and filter) is on, water was weeping out of the raised spa through one of the small pipes on the side. The company speculated that the jet was clogged, so they sent a technician yesterday to remove and replace all of...

    Spa draining into pool

    All, I seem to be having a fairly common issue of the above pool spa draining into the pool when the pump is off. Water does not go below the return jets. I’ve checked the check valve on the spa return and it looks fine. Spring still works, O-rings intact. I moved both return and drain on the...

    Question about stopping reverse water flow

    I have a typical Florida pool/spa setup. In the spa I used to have a water feature which I didn’t care for. It causes uneven flow back into the pool. It was screwed into the floor of the spa via PVC. I removed it and at night when the pump stops, the spa level drops by half. Is there a type of...

    Filter pressure in pool vs spa

    Hello, I have an inground pool with an associated spa. I am wondering if anyone has ever experienced the filter pressure tripling when the spa is isolated? This is a new issue so I thought I needed to backwash my system. After doing so, when I open all valves (pool and spa) or isolate the pool...

    I seemed to have misplaced my once received from the forum, guidelines on how much Hydrogen Peroxide to use in my spa to reduce chlorine to a tolerable level around 3-5ppm. I did a bit of online research and found a few articles one of which talks about 2 ounces Hydrogen Peroxide for every 100...
