I fully inspected the skimmer for any cracks, filled it with water and found no leaks. Since it's 10 yrs old, I chaulked it up to wear and tear. I bought some 100% Silicon, applied it around the opening on the hot tub and the back of the skimmer and reinstalled. Letting the Silicon cure for 24 hrs which will be in about 2 hours and will retest. I'm pretty sure this should take care of my problem.

Water intake to hot tub insuficant with floating door , without door enough water is available

Fill the spa water up higher. It could be that there is just not enough water in the tub to prevent the pump from sucking so much water through the skimmer wier.

I bought a used hydro spa hot tub. 5 people 5 person hydro spa model # 1015EP-OD :) i know there should be a filter somewhere but not sure where and what kind. .

look for the filter in a housing under the skirting close to the control box. if there is no filter canister there then it will be on the top of the tub. Do you see an open mouth skimmer similar to what you would see in a swimming pool?
If you see a skimmer like that then the filter will be down inside the opening. Reach your hand down in there with the spa NOT running to feel for the filter.
If you can email me a picture of the inside of the spa I can tell you where your filer will be located. send to:

I need to clean the fiter basketon my Waterway pump system. How do I keep from pouring out once I remove the filter cover?

You should have a valves on the hoses from the skimmer to the pump & the pump to the return.
If you don't have these valves then the pool is draining into the pump from the skimmer and/or return. If you do not have any valves block the skimmer and/or return port & isolate the pump so you have clean the basket.

NOTE don't forget to open the valves/ unblock the lines when you turn the pump back on so it does not burn out.

Pump is connected and appears to be operating correctly. However, there is not enough pressure building and pushing water through the skimmer.

it pulls water from the skimmer, take the front of the pump off, about 8 screws and i think you will find trash in the impeller. you can make a tool out of a clothes hanger to help you pick the stuff out of the veins ... make sure your filter is clean !!!! you tan take it out and try running it without the filter..

Flahes from FL to the temperature (13) after refiling. Temperature level will also not increase.

FL is usually a flow sensor/switch fault. If you have just filled the tub, the pump may not be properly primed. The best thing is to fill the tub through the skimmer when you first start filling it, that ensures the pump is filled with water and is not air locked. You may have to force water into the skimmer to push the air out of the line or loosen a union on the discharge side of the pump to get it primed. FL will not let heater run because it thinks that there is no flow.

Buy an inexpensive floater for in the water and put them in there. Putting them in the skimmer will just shorten the life of a pump that will already struggle to give you 3 years of service.
