SOURCE: jacuzzi at higher elevation to swimming pool,

you probably have a check valve (back flow preventer) on the line that supplies water to the spa when the pool is filtering as normal. Your check valve may have some debris in it or the seal inside may have failed allowing the water to drain into the pool when the system is off. You should see a valve on the return line that splits off from the pool return line on your system. There are several different check valves on the market, some have a clear lid that you can inspect without taking it apart. Some of them cannot be taken apart. Your challenge will be to find the check valve, then try to check to see it debris may be holding it partly open or it the rubber seal inside is damaged or missing. I hope this helps.

In the water reservoir there is a tube that maintains the water height during operation. It fits in the overflow drain hole and keeps the water level at the proper level. This tube is either not installed into the bottom of the reservoir properly or it is broken.
Hope this helps

Hottub drained itself


If your hot tub water has all drained then you need to look for a leak obviously.
Start in the cabinet area where there are unions attaching the pump and the electronics. Sometimes those will vibrate loose and will begin to leak.
If all the unions are tight and you see no water then you need to start to look elsewhere around the tub for water leaks. It could be a broken manifold in the plumbing or a jet body.

I have a jacuzzi 1/2 hp submersible well pump. Does this need any regular maintainance to keep it happy.


No preventative maintenance is necessary. However, a happy pump always has water above it and should not pump sand. If the water level in the well is below the pump/motor they will overheat. If this is a problem your local pump company can install a module to protect your pump from this type of event.

Super low water level in bowl decreases after flush refills


First, fyi, adjusting the knob? in the tank, or the fill level will not increase the amount of water in the bowl. The bowl fills to a certain point, and then as more water is added it starts to go over the built in trap, and down the drain. When you flush the toilet, all the water in the tank dumps into the bowl, and the existing water is pushed over the trap and down the drain. All of this being said it sounds like you may either have an internal crack, between the bowl and trap; you may have a crack that is draining under your toilet, (water spots?), or you have a more serious plumbing issue, improper venting, which is causing a vacuum, and pulling the water out. Hope this helps.

Hello, how I remove the water from my whirlpool jacuzzi bath Balboa Z112 spa so I can clean it


hook up a garden hose to a faucet. Put the other end in your spa. Then turn on the faucetuntil water comes out the spa end of hose. Make sure the end in the spa is weighted down so it doesn't come out. Then remove the hose from the faucet and keeping it lower than the spa lay the hose where it can drain with causing problems. The water will flow on its own draining the spa. You may want to clean it while its draing so the dirty water will be diluted and drain at thhe same time. Make sure the water is not drained out around any electrical AND!!! NO DIVING!!!! If you lose the prime, just fill the hose again with the faucet. Good luck
