If water fills up the spa when the pool pump turns on and then overflows into the pool and causes water loss each time the pump turns on what can be done to stop this?

It sounds as if one pump is filtering both the pool and the spa.

Check to see if you have a three-way diverter valve in the plumbing after the filter. These types of adjustable valves are sometimes called "Jandy" valves, because they are made by the Jandy company. Go to their Website to see what one looks like and how it works. Make sure you turn the top small knob counterclockwise to unlock the valve first, then click the valve handle around until the deisred flow is reached with the pump running

You should be able to divert enough water flow from the pump to a bypass, or return, that will keep the water from overfilling the spa when the pump is on.

Or, check to see if the three-way valve is in-line to the spa plumbing, it will still need to operate in a manner that will maintain the spa level. The feature that you are seeing is used to flush out the spa so that all of it's water can be filtered into the whole volume of the pool, then replaced again by the pump -but the sap should not go empty or overfill while doing so.

Some of these valves have electronic solenoid controls to open and close them. Your controller may just need to be programmed to "tell" the valve to open and close when needed.

This is because when the ice melts, it turns to water and the water fills the little carbonation bubbles, which takes out flavor and, carbonation.

When a liquid for example water, turn to a gas you need to add energy to it. Water turns to a gas by boiling it. water turns to steam when you are boiling it.

The area that is normally covered by water when a river overflows its banks is called the floodplain. This area is the first part of the land to be flooded.

Heat from the Sun causes water to evaporate from the surface of lakes and oceans. This turns the liquid water into water vapor in the atmosphere.

Water from rainfall and runoff seep into the ground, so it fills the spaces between particles of soil and rock. The water freezes and gets bigger, (expands) and it causes the lifting of rock and soil. โ˜บ

The clouds move away from the sun, cooling down then the water vapor turns to liquid.

Ground Water, which seeps into the soil and fills the cracks unerground.

The Sun's energy warms on Earth heated water turns into water vapor air holding the water vapor rises and cools water vapor turns into water droplets and ice crystal's causes clouds to form.

It heats the ocean surface and causes evaporation.it evaporates and turns into rain

Lakes are bodies of water that are surrounded by land. lake are formed naturally or sometimes artificially by men. Lakes usually form when rivers encounter a low lying area where the water collects, or when an underground spring fills the area, which if it overflows can form a river. It is talking about how it is made

yes, this is why if you put a filled to the brim cup of water in the freezer, it overflows when it is frozen....
