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.

Why does pump lose prime after shutting down. Doesn't prime again until it is taken off and restarted again


You could have a seal leaking in your pump, the lid could be loose, or possibly a drain plug on your pump. You may need to put a check valve on the suction line

Jacuzzi pool pump delivers no water


wow if it got that cold there id be winterizing with food grade antifreeze not just drainig it down, you could miss pockets of water here and there and produce a crack in housing someplace , as for trouble shooting a no flow situation try the ole standby method of methodical subsitution it's worked for 100 years , keep removing parts (start at suction line in pool) temporray out of system till flow starts then you know last part sub'd out was it!!!

What is an infinity pool?


Infinity pool design is really an awesome look and feature.
So cool...
Also called Negative Edge or Vanishing Edge Pools.

When they have a breathtaking backdrop behind it, Nothing can beat the view! Like another body of water or hillside!
And then depending on the design, the opposite end where the water falls into, can be a spectacular water fall, wading pool, water feature, etc.

Take a look at these:

Let your filter run for a couple days, you will get the undisolved solids out of the water.

Cloudy water is junk floating in the water. "Super Blue" is a product I use to make the junk stick together to be collected by the filter.

I have a Leisure Bay 24 ft above ground pool thathas a 1.5 hp Jacuzzi Hurricane pump and a jacuzzi sand filter. The pump is moving water very well but I noticed I have "a lot" off bubbles under...


probably a "O" ring as the seal
if the pump is doing what it is supposed to be doing and everything is normal. I would not stress about air under the cover as water contains air in suspension ( how fish get their oxygen to live) and from the turbulent action of the pump impeller , some of that air will be released and collected at the highest point of the flow line

I see air bubbles in the motor window


Make sure you water level is adequate so as not to draw air through the skimmers. Also, the o-ring on the pump strainer might be bad or debris on it. While the pump is running, shut it off and see if water squirts out of the pump lid or fittings right when it shuts off.

We do not know where the air filter valves are


Air filter?

Remove the strainer basket cover ... fill with water ... check the gasket ... replace if questionable ... close the cover and SNUG the top down. Start the pump ... it should run just fine.

If you are sucking air, tighten the strainer basket cover a little.

Still sucking air? You will have to find the air leak. You might plug the leak with plumbers putty.
