Question about Pool & Spa
I have a mid-90's 5-8 person sundance camino (?) spa shell. In facing the front of the shell, there is 1 hose on the left and two on the right. I will use our gas heater to go into the pump, but I don't know which of the three hoses are intake vs outake. I am presuming that a hose from the pump goes to the hot tub and ''T's'' to two of the three hoses on the hot tub. But, which part of the pump pushes water in and which part draws the water out? What goes where? Heeeeelp!!!
There is a skimmer in the side of your tub( the part that skimms water off the top ) and what is called a main drain or a better tearm is deep suction that pulls water from the bottom of the tub and helps collect heavy dirt from in the tub these two lines ( three if there is more than one main drain) These will all come together and then hook to the front of the pump. If your filter is under the skimmer basket the top of the pump will go to the heater and then back to the spa. If your filter in not under the skimmre basket then it will come after the pump then on to the heater. So in answer to your second question, the front of the pump draws the water in and the top pushes the water out. But make sure that your heater is last in line so it only deals with clean water and it will not run on the suction side of the pump as it need water pressure in it to start and contious flow to keep it from over heating. Hope this helps.
