Hi TFP,

My spa jets has water coming out when in "pool mode". Not a big deal but I think it might be affecting the amount of water pressure coming through the jets in the pool. I also noticed that when the spa massage Jets are on that the amount of water pressure coming through the pool returns are significantly increased. I feel that by having less water pressure come through the pool returns that my pool will take longer to heat. Any thoughts and thanks,

I need to see pics of current valve settings and closeups of areas given how crowded your plumbing is.

Okay, I will do that thanks. In the meantime is it normal for water to come out of the spa Jets when the equipment is set to pool mode and the heater is on?

You have a line labeled BYPASS that feeds water to the spa when in pool mode. Turn the blue valve on that line off and it should stop the flow to the spa when the pool is on.
