Spa Losing Water when Pump Off

As the title suggests, my raised spa is losing water whenever the pump isn't running. The level drops to jets but never gets lower than the jets.

Of note the water loss occurs more rapidly when the Spa Suction Valve is left slightly open. But even when fully closed off the spa will still lose water.

Is this a Valve issue or something totally different?

Thanks in advance.

Most pools with raised spas have a check valve to prevent what is happening to you.

I suspect the check valve is broken or has something in it that is keeping the valve from shutting.

Post a couple of pics of your equipment pad and that might help us help you...

Thanks for posting,
