Pumps can help keep water clear

Poor water clarity may indicate the presence of contaiminants and bacteria
The filtration systems may not be working effectively to remove the particles and contaminants in the water.

Allowing water that is out of balance to circulate in a hot tub for prolonged periods of time can cause damage to pump seals and other hot tub components.

One of the best ways to get longer life out of a spa pump and related components is to keep the water clear, ph balanced and the filter clean.

Noisy Pump Problems

If an Aqua Flow pump develops noise, it could be caused by many factors including a leak or other air pocket within the pump

Aqua Flo Hot Tub Pump Troubleshooting Steps

For those that are qualified to work on their own spa pump, isolating the problem is how pump issues can beresolved.

For safe resolution, assure the breaker is turned off and power is disconnected.

First of all if a problem with a pump occurs it needs to be confirmed, that the problem is really with the pump and not with the circuit breaker, GFCI or power supply.

If the pump motor does not start at all,
in addition to checking the circuit breaker, the wiring and power supply should be checked as well as the line voltage. There is also a pneumatic switch that may be turned off.

If the pump runs very hot, this may be a sign of insufficient voltage. This condition can also be caused by undersized wiring. If a very long wire run is used to supply the spa, then a thicker cable may be needed.

A poorly performing pump may also be a sign of low voltage, but also could indicate a clogged filter or clogged plumbing line or obstruction. Modifying plumbing and creating an undersized suction line condition could also result in a noisy pump. If plumbing pipes and hoses are not foamed down, they may vibrate also causing vibration and noise.

Pump isolation pads can mitigate some of the pump hum and vibration.

When replacing a hot tub spa pump, source a similar model as the spa manufacturer has already completed tests on which pumps are the most compatible with the plumbing system in the particular spa model.
