Hope the picture attached correctly.. Here goes..
Spa drops 4-5 inches at night while pool is off.
This has been going on for 3 years on and off. Spa was draining into pool after shut off. I have had the check valve replaced 5 times now, a pump replaced (because it burned up..) every gasket removed, replaced, & lubed, had a automatic jandy valves replaced twice, leak test performed (no problems at all.)
Yesterday they sent a plumber out and replaced my 2 way valves with 3 way valves, cut out the entire plumbing where the check valve is, replaced with new pipes and a new checkvalve.
This morning the spa was down about 10 inches, the jets were spewing water into the spa. I looked at the Pentair panel, apparently the plumber left it in "Service" mode. How did the spa come on? Freeze alert? Heater not on.. I refilled the spa and once it got full, I turned off the hose. Ran the pool as normal.
At this point, I need to let the water drain from the spa 100% and just run the pool. Is there a way to set that up. I'll turn the spa into a flower pot I guess.
Thank you in advance..
