Spa Pumps & Motors
Circulating water through your hot tub is the job of your spa pump, which is powered by the motor. The pump is one of the most expensive components in the pack and also one of the most likely to break down. The reason for their vulnerability is their constant operation, speed of operation, and the fact that they are in contact with chemicals and dirt.
Spa pumps can last as long as ten years. Broken spa pumps can often be fixed, but the labor involved tends to not make it worthwhile. More often than not, a broken pump is easier to replace instead of repair. When considering the repair of a spa motor over buying a new one, if the hot tub pump is over six years old, it is a good idea to replace the entire hot tub motor when a shaft seal is leaking or the hot tub pump impeller has failed. Corrosion is often present that cannot be seen until the spa motor assembly has been taken apart.
If you are replacing an existing spa pump, you can replace it with the same or similar horsepower as your existing pump. A good rule of thumb is to ensure that your spa motors has 1 HP for every 4 to 6 standard size jets More horsepower is great when talking about vehicles, but not always the case with spas and hot tubs. Overpowering your jets with too much horsepower could damage your plumbing and equipment. So getting the right sized motor for your spa is critical to success of your repair and peak performance of your spa.
