Hot Tub Motor and Pump Repair

Hot tub motor is one of the most important parts of the hot tub itself, because it is the one that drives almost all the other parts necessary for water circulation, such as the water pump. Without the motor, your water will just lay stagnant in there, and your hot tub will just be like a swimming pool. The pump will lose its power necessary for maintaining the supply of water through the water jets, losing the massaging power of the hot tub, too.

Diagnosing your hot tub motor system can now be done on a separate control settings found in modern hot tubs. The pump system, the circulation, the water jet system, as well as the temperature set can also be included in the said control setting which provides an easier access to all the control functions.

However, take note that if you hire anyone to diagnose the problems, you will be paying them real soon.  If you have budget for that, just put in your mind that it is the safest way to get your hot tub working again. Before the diagnosis takes place, be sure that all the switches are turned off. Only when the expert requests it being on, there should be no electricity flowing to avoid any harm.

The pump includes the motor and the wet end. Between the two, the wet end is exposed to water, because it controls the circulation of the water throughout the hot tub. The motor, on the other hand, contains the impeller which spins once electric current is made available. This is turn makes the water movement possible. The parts where the water flows is connected by bolts to prevent the water from leaking. If the connections get loose, water may leak which is very undesirable. On the contrary, if the screws were very tight, the plate may break, which can damage the whole part.

The parts of the hot tub can break at different times, making the checking for them imperative at all cost. For example, the covering of the pump is called seal, which can break when the water gets too much chemicals that it deteriorates the walls of the seal. When the seals get broken, the water would find its way up to the pump itself, starting a problem. There are several materials that can be used for replacing the seal, such as ceramic. But to get the best type of pump seal, you should search for a certain kind which can fit in with the type of pump you have.

Before you replace your hot tub pump, it is very important for you to be sure that it is already damaged enough to be replaced. Sometimes, it can still be repaired. You can check for other parts to see if they are the ones responsible for the malfunctioning of your hot tub. If they are, then there would be no need for you to blame it to your pump. However, if you are now sure that your pump is the suspect, do the replacements.

Replacing the Broken Parts

The damaged parts should be replaced to prevent further damage and to avoid the harm they pose. Some of the parts that may need replacements are the impellers and the ends. All these parts are available for purchase.

Both ends of the pump, the motor and the wet end, have impellers in it but the impeller at the wet end is more prone to destruction because it is the one exposed to the water. When it becomes jammed, the water would not flow smoothly, which results in the blockage of the water circulation. The water jets would stop producing streams of water. Luckily, there are lots of impeller models that can substitute for your broken one.

Another example of replaceable hot tub pump parts is the seal. As mentioned above, this protects the outer surface of the pump. When continually exposed to dirty water and chemicals, it may deteriorate over time. Once it gets broken it is important to replace it with chemical-resistant materials that can survive long exposure to degradative agents.

Fortunately, if your hot tub pump gets damaged, you can find a lot of replacements to it. There is no need to find the exact copy of your broken pump since most other pumps could work with your hot tub. But to be sure that your new hot tub pump will work perfectly fine, several requirements should still be met, such as the speed, voltage, and the frequency.
