    spa water refill or slam?

    Hi everyone,

    my filter was out of action for a week and now I need to SLAM the pool anyway. The spa is also yeuch. I was thinking I would just empty the spa water, clean everything up ( with what?) clean out some of the blowers/returns that don't seem to have the same pressure as the others and re-fix a tile that has come off the trim.

    However, would I be better slamming the spa at the same time as the pool? I'm wondering about making sure all the pipes to the spa are free of algae.

    Get your hands on some Ahh-some spa line cleaner that removes biofilm from the pipes.

    Google it and the webpage has a short video on its use. Great stuff.
