Pressure side leak question


New member

Hello. I have a combined spa/pool system, and I’m fairly certain I have a leak in one of the pool or spa returns. I’m leaving the pumps off for a while to monitor levels.

To further isolate where the leak may be, is there any harm in moving the valves so suction remains with the skimmers/vacuum and return all the water to the spa and let it spill over? Any other suggestions before calling the pros?

Thanks for any help.

Noop. no harm. Like your thinking isolate one, and monitor for level drops. Leave the pump running, water levels drop faster better in this test. Suck/pull water from the spa and return water to the spa. Next pull water from the pool, and return the water to the pool. Keep the pump running, shutting if off takes longer to see water levels drop.
