Where is the drain located on a Tuff Spa

Some smaller spas don't provide a drain, they must be pumped or siphoned. If you spa offers an access panel, simple examination will reveal if and where the drain connections is.

What setting do you put it on to drain the pool for plaster repair

There is usually a setting on the handle that says "Drain" but if not you can always use the Backwash setting to get all the water out of the pool or at least most of it.

Indoor swimming pool has bad smell only when running spa pump or ozone pump with lots of foaming

Hi.. I tell my customer to boil a glass jar and lid, like your canning. and use this jar to take the sample of water out of your pool - spa to have tested, take it to several places to have it tested.
and ozone pumps are not good to run inside in a open environment, I think the produce positive ions. but kill bacteria and odors, so if this is a SPA run the pump and ozone generator for a few days with the correct amount of anti foam and cover on it should clear right up. to avoid this problem pool and spas must have the pump on a timer or set to circulate !
if your not going to use your portable spa for say a season you must drain it !!! and drain the pumps. this will ensure that you get many many happy years of service out of your pumps and spa.

1993 QCA Dream Master spa. Worked fine when drained last fall. Winterized with RV antifreeze. Just filled it and nothing happens. Heater light on solid for 30 seconds then starts flashing. Any ideas?

You probally have an air lock. All you need to do is find the drain valve and open it long enough to get water running full. This will flood the pipes and the spa should start. Good luck.

How do i drain pool with hayward valve? setting is on waste but only drains hottub then looses prime.

you do need to set the filter valve to waste but you need to make sure the valve on the suction side of the pump is pulling water from the pool instead of the spa. Also, if you have a separate skimmer and main drain valve on the pool suction, make sure the skimmer valve is turned off. Otherwise, you will keep losing suction. If you don't have a separate skimmer and main drain valve, you may not be able to drain the pool with your equipment.

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.
