Question about Aqua Flo Aquaflo Flo Master Xp2 Spa Pump 1.5 Hp Two Speed
Pump mainly leaks when it's turned on but minimal leak when it's turned off too. It's a significant leak. I read that it could be the seal but the pump is over 5 yrs old.
Sounds like you need a new Mechanical Seal for the wet end. Pretty simple job to change the seal kit.
It is also a lot cheaper to do that than purchase a new pump.

SOURCE: pump seals
The impeller is threaded on to the shaft. The trick is to hold the shaft in order to untread the impeller. The surest method is to disassemble the back of the motor, exposing the opposite end of the shaft. There should be a spot to put a wrench in order to hold the shaft immobile. Then, it's simply a matter of unthreading the shaft. A strap wrench does a great job of holding the impeller without damaging it.

SOURCE: hot tub pump will not
This can be one of three issues.
1. Starting capacitor as you have suggested. You can take the capacitor to a motor shop and have it tested or test it yourself if you have a meter that will check capacitance. 2. Low/High voltage. If the voltage is not at the proper levels (10% up or down) then the unit may have a hard time starting. 3. Something might be binding up the impeller. Disconnect the power and carefully check to see if the shaft of the motor spins freely. 4. A short in the windings. If none of these seem to be the problem, then you will probably need to replace the motor.

You are generally better off replacing the pump with the same model. Hot tubs are noisy unless you have a really good insulation job. It is unlikely changing the pump will make it any different as far as noise goes. The flip side is that the manufacturer sized the pump to match the hydraulic load present within your specific tub and to provide the necessary flow rate to keep the water clean. It can lead to problems if you put in the wrong replacement unit.

The fault is most likely to be the condensor. They can and do fail at an early age.
You don't need to dismantle the pump, on the rear of the pump you'll find a slot on the motor shaft which can be turned with a screwdriver.
If you've only just reffiled the hot tub it could also be an airlock.
