Try disabling the heater and recheck. Unplug each component to control pack to identify which is causing gfci trip. This will isolate problem units or controls.

SOURCE: no power to hot tub...

In all liklihood, your problem is a breakdown in the insulation of the heating element. The elements tend to be mineral insulated then metal jacketed. Once you get a bit of corrosion on the jacket and a little water gets into the mineral powder, it's insulation properties fall off sharply, shorting out the power supply.

There are two practical ways of testing this:

The pro way of doing it is to borrow a high voltage insulation tester, disconnect the power leads from the element and check the resistance between one of the elements terminals and the jacket. Treat anything less than a megohm as a failure requiring replacement of the element. (nb. This is one of those rare cases where you need to use a proper insulation tester - an ordinary multimeter often fails to find this problem)

The alternative is just to replace the element and see how much difference it makes.

SOURCE: I just drained my hot tub to fix a leak and now

The pump motor may be locked up. If the pump wasn't considerably loud before you drained it (indicating bearings rusted out and going bad) then you may be able to free the motor shaft. Sometimes rust will accumulate between the staters and rotors within the motor. You could remove the shaft access cover on the rear of the motor. (Usually takes a 1/4" nut driver) If the shaft is accessible, and doesn't have a centrifugal switch mounted to the end of it, you may have a shot without professional assistance. It is usually slotted for a 1/2" wrench. Take the wrench and attempt to work the shaft back and forth until it frees up. If it already spins freely, then the start capacitor is likely bad and needs to be replaced. If the shaft offers resistance, then continue to turn it back and forth until it spins freely. Replace cover and switch it on. Its should start up fine. If the motor shrills, then the motor will need to be replaced. Hope this helps you.

Pool pump wont prime when in pool mode, but will run in hot tub mode. Hot tub is 3 ft higher than the pool... is this a bad impeller? I think it may have run for a few hours without a prime , as I...

I assume that it pumps from/to the hot tub. If so, the pump is fine. Look for any air leaks in the piping/hoses from the connection in the pool to the inlet of the pump.

Just drained and refilled, plugged back in and hot tub is not heating. Three lights flashing at temp controls. Is there a reset

Most hot tubs have a freeze protection that will lock you out and run the pumps full blast with no heater if the temerature is under 50 degrees F.The circulating pumps create heat until the water temp is above 50 degrees, and then the heater will come on after that.
Hot tubs do this to protect themselves and it is normal operation.

Self priming hot tub pump won't prime

If you have had the tub empty and refilled this could be an air lock and all you may need to do is open the drain valve till you get water out of it. Good luck

QCA Dream Series, Mystic SPA. Drained, cleaned and re-filled. Following power restore (and 5 min or so prime cycle), the the pump runs continuously at low speed - it NEVER stops. Everything else works fine...

After refiling a spa, typicall the water is below 50 degrees F. Spas have a freeze protection in their programming so that when the water is that cold, the pumps run constantly to keep it from freezing. It will correct itself
