Understanding how to use spa with freeze protection on

We are living in a new home that has a system where the pool and spa are connected to the same filter ump. Freeze protection is activated n both due to freezing to subfreezing temps. QUESTION: HOW DO WE GET TO USE THE IN GROUND SPA IN THESE CONDITIONS?

We have the RS4 Aqualink System.
When I push the spa button, the screen says "press enter to override freeze protection or abort" IF I DO THIS, WILL POOL LOSE FREEZE PROTECTION WHILE USING THE SPA? HOW DO WE GET FREEZE PROTECTION BACK ON TO BOTH POOL AND SPA when we are done using the spa at 104degrees

IS IT OK TO USE INGROUND SPA DURING WINTER MONTHS? IS KEEPING THE FILTER ON ALL THE TIME AND THE SPA HEATER SET TO SOMEWHERE BETWEEN 50-60 (IF POSSIBLE) WHEN WE ARE NOT HEATING IT TO USE THE WAY TO GO? DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA IF THIS IS REALLY EXPENSIVE?

We are pool novices. It is unusually cold in PA right now. Also we really want to be able to use the spa in the winter because one of us has serious back and muscle problems.

ANY HELP YOU CAN OFFER WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED AND USED! THANK YOU IN ADVANCE

I have been told by Sylvan that there is a relatively simple way to separate the two systems by adding some sort of valve....?

Freeze protection will always be on. when you're done using the spa just push the heater/spa button. it will turn off. when ever the air temp drops below 37-39 degrees the air sensor will tell the system the it's getting cold and it will kick on the pump. you can change the it under settings menu if you want other pumps to come besides the filter pump

Pool spa heater when freezing temp


It normally will heat up with pump moving water, once the threshold is achieved - system will come out of its Freeze protection mode and will begin to work as programmed. If there is a heat call, heater will come on.
You can also locate the sensors, both the Water & Air (they need to be very close in temperature for this to work) then place them in water warmer than the actual ambient temp, & above the temp that triggers "Freeze".

Why does the pool light come on without prompt?


Hi
The first thing you need to do is to go into "Program Reveiw" see if any on/off times have been set for the pool light. If no times have been set now lets see if it has been set up as a freeze protect item. Go into the system setup menu then go to freeze protection make sure the light is not set to come on when if the system gos into freeze protection mode.

One other thing to look at when the light was working normally was it Dimmable. What I mean by this is when you would turn it on would the display say 100% and you could use the arrow buttons to turn it up & down. there is a special controller for dimming lights and if that unit is not installed but the Aqualink thinks it is there the light will always be on. To check make sure the display says the light is off. Now look at the outside control box make sure the red light above the aux button for the light is out. check the pool light if it is on the Aqualink thinks it is a dimmer. You have to unasign the pool light as Dimmable for the set-up menu.

I just did a service call on Friday for this problem. New people moved into the house the husband started messing around with the programing. He saw the Dimmable option and thought that would be cool to have. Than he called us saying the light would go out and he couldn't dim it.

Aqualinks are great systems I have been working with all of the automation system for the past 15 years and Jandys systemis by far the best,
Hope this helps

How does heater work to keep freeze off pool in winter


What state do you live in, what is the brand name and model number of the heater. If you live in a state that gets cold during the winter, call you local pool store and schedule a closing. If the pump is running and water is not circulating, most likely the pump lost prime or your filter needs to be backwashed, or there is some debris in the impeller.
