Spa and Pool Heater Operation


The spa can NOT be heated independently of the pool for a period of time greater than two hours. Failure to switch the valves back to the "Pool Mode" after use of the Spa will result in additional charges, unfiltered water and algae in the pool. If you don't understand the difference between "Spa Mode" and "Pool Mode", Call the management company prior to touching the valves and or changing modes. 


Your Security Deposit will be forfeited if you remove the floating "Chlorine Dispenser".


Pool Heating


To heat the pool,

1.)  Confirm the water is flowing over from the jacuzzi into the pool. This is the best indicator of "Pool Mode". If the pool is not in "Pool Mode" See images below to align valves into the correct positions for "Pool Mode"  Water will not flow from the Jacuzzi into the pool when the valves are in "Spa Mode"

2.)Turn on the Hayward Pool Heater  by changing the mode from Standby to Pool.

3.) Set temperature (The suggested temperature is no more than 85 Degrees for the pool)

Note: Setting a higher temperature doesnt mean the pool/spa will heat faster. 

 (These valves should always be in this position for both modes)

(The Suction Valve is in between Pool Mode and Spa Mode  in the picture above)

(Spa Mode Suction, The handle is on the left and the off is on the right)

Spa Heating 

 1.) Turn the pool/spa suction valve to "Spa Mode" This basically means the water is going to be sent to and from the spa. The pool will not be  getting an circulation of water (The water should be still in the pool when the Suction/Selector valve is in "Spa Mode".

To switch modes , turn the handle below so the "off" written on the front of the handle faces the "Pool Suction" label.  If your facing the pool/spa suction valve, The handle will move from the  middle position to the left. The "off will be on the right closest to the "pool Suction Label.

2.) Turn the heater on and select the Spa setting. Set temperature to the desired temp.  

3.) Return to Pool mode when finished.

Note: Please allow up to an hour to heat the spa and up to 24 hours to heat the pool to the desired temperature
