Have a 1993 Tiger River Spa, Check valve is broken, not enough room to replace it, tube sticks out just a little in the upper right corner and doesn't seem to be movable. Anyone have this problem and have suggestion?
After my system has shut off, water from my raised spa drains into the pool overnight until the levels are roughly equal. After reading other posts, I concluded the Jandy check valve on the spa return line might be the cause so I ordered a new valve. Upon removal of the old check valve, I discovered it was positioned with the red flapper flush against the pvc pipe. Water flowing through the line has no effect on it. The old check valve was in fine condition. It was originally installed this way 8 years ago when the pool was constructed. The drainage problem with the spa began about a month ago. I installed the new check valve anyway; first the same way as the original one, and then I also repositioned it with the red flapper to open if spa return valve opened. The problem of spa draining into pool overnight persists regardless. Since the check valve is not the problem, what could be causing the spa to drain? (And why was the check valve installed in such a way in the first place - it seems to have no purpose that way!) I thought I had it beat with the check valve - now I'm stumped! Thanks for any advice!
