Just might be trash in the pumps impeller. unscrew the center pump hose and with a flashlight look to see if it has a blockage. these are high volume pumps and require the spa to be full.

What is a Thermal relief valve?


The thermal relief valve is a valve that opens when the water inside your pump gets too hot. When you are not pulling the trigger on your gun, the water is circulating inside the pump. After a little while the water starts getting hot from the friction of the moving parts. When the water gets too hot, the heat starts to damage the water seals. What a thermal relief valve does is, at about 145 degrees it opens up dumping the water inside the pump on the ground. As the water pours out, new cool water flows in from the garden hose, cooling off the pump. I personally recommend a thermal relief valve to everyone I sell pumps to. Not all pumps come with a thermal relief valve. For the price (between 10 and 15 dollars) they will save you a lot more than they cost.

Hot tub stuck in PR mode.


Are the pumps primed, the code represents that the pumps are being primed and should only stay on 2 - 5 minutes. If the pumps are not primed then you may have an air lock or dirty filters. You need to release the air or clean or replace the filters and your pumps will prime.

Will a flow switch stop the tub of any operation


Is the board getting power, is the control lighting up?
Do you see any error codes on the top side control?
Improper flow will give you an error code, caused by flow issues or a faulty flow switch. Make sure all gate valves are open and the water can flow freely.
If not then check your Hi Limit sensor. This is the overheat safety sensor if it fails the tub will not function at all.

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.

fill the tub with water and then turn the pump on. Get under the tub next to the pump and loosen the union on the discharge of the pump until some water starts coming out. If you have an air lock this will relief that and the pump should start pushing water to the jets.

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

Hi sstanl, Is your pump output or flow normal back to pool? if there is no water flowing through system you will get no expulsion of air or pressure reading on gauge. If pump is working then you probably have a clogged air release valve and maybe a clogged gauge. Just remove air relief assembly from filter top, remove gauge and clear any obstructions in parts. You should easily be able to blow air thru assy with gauge removed. Teflon tape the components and snug them back in their places. restart your pump and voila! air will come out when prime is established.

No jet flow hot springs highlife 1990


you might have an air lock, when you first start filling the spa, start the water running in the skimmer first. that should force air out of the pump and should pick up prime right away. if not, you may have a valve problem.
