I've always been curious about something and since your spa is like this I'm going to ask. Why would you want to have the spa wall the same height as the pool waterline? Won't the cold water from the pool get into the hot spa? I don't understand how this will work.

The way I understand it is, as long as the pool water level is below [which it is by 1"] the spa wall:
1. In pool mode: the spa water overflows into the pool. Just like a normal raised spa would do with a waterfall.
2. In spa mode: the spa water recirculates in a loop with the heater and back the spa. Just like a raised spa would do...
3. Oh, and I have an auto-fill/spill-over on the pool. So, hoping I can more easily maintain the correct pool water level.
