The Hot pump is what circulates water through your hot tub. Actually, it is a combination of a pump ( wet end ) – a device for moving water – and a motor that powers the pump. The Hot tub pump is the second most expensive component in a spa pack, and it is the one most likely to fail. Hot Tub pumps run in harsh environments. They run frequently, sometimes at high speed, and have to pump hot water containing chemicals and dirt. Wet ends on pumps are easily rebuilt but the motor components may require more work and parts.

Hot Tub motors on the pumps usually last 5-10 years. Broken Hot Tub motors on the pumps can be repaired or rebuilt depending on the wear and usage. If the pump motor is more than about 5 years old there is not much point in repairing a broken pump motor. it should just replace it. And if the pump motor and or the rest of the spa pack are older than 6 years you should consider replacing the entire spa pack – certainly so if the pack is older than 10 years.

If you are replacing an existing spa pump component , you can replace it with the same or similar horsepower as your existing pump, if you are happy with current forcefulness of the water coming out of your jets. In general spa motors should have 1 HP for every 4 to 6 standard size jets (typically rule for 48-frame pumps, and for jets with 5/16″ orifices – 10 GPM per jet at 15 PSI). More horsepower is not better. Overpowering your jets with too much horsepower could damage your plumbing, your equipment.
