Hot Tub Pumps
Hot tub pumps supply water into the tub through jets. The pump is like the powerhouse of the hot tub and works along with the motor which is what powers the pump.
When you buy a new hut tub, you don’t really worry about what the tub has beneath it. It’s just like buying a car and not knowing what is underneath the bonnet till you have car trouble. But the pump is right there and will come to your attention when it gets bad.
The size or capacity of the hot tub will determine the horsepower of the pump. Smaller tubs would use 1.5 to 2 horsepower pumps, but the larger tubs will go for capacities ranging from 3-5 horsepower.
Replacing an existing hot tub pump has to be done with a few things taken into consideration. One thing you should consider is the brand of pump you are buying. There are several brands of hot tub pumps in the market and so you need a brand that will suit your hot tub requirements.
Another point to take into consideration is the noise level. It’s always better to purchase a pump that makes minimal noise.
How easily can you find parts to repair a faulty hot tub pump is yet another factor to take note of. Pumps comprise items like motor, seals, bearings, impeller, gasket and starter capacitor. Would these parts be easily accessible if you need to repair your pump?
The hot tub pump is made up of two sides- the dry and wet sections. The dry section has the electrical motor and is responsible for moving the other section. The wet section has an impeller through which water passes and enters into the tub.
Pumps are one one of the most expensive components of the Spa and so should be refereed to a professional repairman to handle pump repairs. Most of the problems associated with a pump are usually electrically induced.
