With a multitude of possibilities... the best answer i can give you is to look on the suction side of the pump... there should be a three way valve... if you rotate that valve 180 degrees your going to be sucking from your spa main drain (assuring that they had never plugged it)... then on the return side plumbing there should be another three way valve ... rotate that as well and it should only be feeding the spa... ..sadly without a picture this is the best answer i can give you.

I have a Jandy Aqualink pool system. When I turn on the spa and heater, the spa drains..I've never had this happen but don't use the spa much. What should I check?


His is not typically a control panel issue but more likely a valve issue.

Your valves are set as follows wih a few minor variations.....
Pool mode- sucks from pool skimmer and or pool vac line and returns water to both the pool and spa.
Spa mode - self contains the spa , meaning water is sucked from the spa and returned only to the spa.
If your spa is draining then most likely one of your electronic valves is failing...most likely it's the return valve so what is happening is the water is sucked from the spa and returned to the pool instead of self containing the spa.
Easy check is to be next to the equip when spa mode is selected and two valves should move and align properly, the return side valve is most likely not moving or it is not moving into the correct position.
The fix is either adjusting the valve acuator or buying a new valve acuator.
Another thing to check is on the main panel circuit board to ensure the return and auction 3 pin plug ins are still connected.

The Spa Mode emptied the spa water into the pool so the pool level is too high and I cant get the spa to refill.


You RETURN side valve actuator has malfunctioned and did not move into the spa return position. Most actuators have a toggle switch on them where you can over ride the system.
The 3 positions are; normal, off, and reverse. You can check to see how the valve is moving by flipping the toggle switch. If the actuator is more than 10-12 years old it may need to be replaced. Actuators are standardized between manufacturers and new ones will run about $120, easy to change out.

Spa won't heat unless in spa mode, and if it is in


On the automated valves there are tiny switches on one end or under the valve actuator. When you switch to the spa mode the suction valve should should move to fully block pool drains. The return valve should fully block the pipes to the pool returns and spa fountain. If one or both of these valves is not fully blocking the pipes to the pool then the tiny switch on that valve is in the wrong position or an operator is defective. The middle position of either of these switches turns the operator completely off so it cannot move. That is the position to avoid unless you want to operate it manually. One of the other switch positions caused the valve to move in one direction and the other switch positions causes the valve to move in the other direction. If you set the switches so when in the spa mode water is circulating only in the spa then you have the valves in the right position. Next, place the system into the pool mode. Both valves should move to the other position. If not then the valve operator that doesn't move has a problem. It could be the operator, the wiring, the control panel or a stuck valve in that order. All of this sounds complicated but once you know how the operators should act when you flip those tiny switches and how the valves should act when in the spa and the pool mode then getting the switches set right is simple. I hope this helps.

We have a laars lite 2 pool heater , the pilot is lit but the unit will not fire up


With these pool heaters, there are a couple of things that you can try before you call a pro. First, make sure that your gas valve knob is turned to the on position. Secondly, you could have air in your gas line. Cycle the ignition sequence until all air is out of the line. It could also be that your gas valve is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced.

Hello


There are a few things that you will need to check on these pool heaters if your unit is ignited, but your burners wont fire. First, and this probably seems obvious, make sure that the knob is set to the on position. Next, cycle the ignition sequence until the air is out of the gas line. If it will still not fire, replace the gas valve.

Jandy aqualink rs4: pool has been winterized with the spa left on. when switched from service mode into auto mode system switches back from spa into pool mode (motorized valve switches back to pool mode)....


the only thing you can do since the jandy does not have a "winter" mode is switch the valves off. Once you have the valves in spa mode, there should be a toggle switch on the valve actuators. You can set the switches to the middle position and that will lock them in that position. You will probably have to re-winterize the pool lines.

Why does the spa empty when the pump shuts off? just got a pool with an aqualink RS4 and no manual to look at. thanks


This problem can be caused by a couple things. the two most likely culprtits are either the absence of check valves and or incorrect actuator settings when the pump shuts down.

Your spa is most likely higher than the pool. You most likely have a spill over (waterfall) feature from the spa into the pool. This is so the spa water can be recirculated in pool mode. One of your actuator valves may be slightly off closed position in order to allow spill over in the spa, or you may have a dedicated overfill pipe in the circuit to feed water to spa in pool mode.

Whichever spill over piping you have set up, when the pump shuts down, water from the spa ( higher level than the pool) will backfeed through the overflow spa circuit, back through the pump and into the pool through either drain or return. Effectively rendering your spa level the same level as your pool.

To fix this problem, simply install check valves into the spa runs and as a secondary measure put one into the pool return run ( the run that feeds water to pool).

This will insure that when the pump shuts down, no matter which position the valve actuators may be set, water can not back feed through the pump circuit from spa to pool.
