Question about Pool & Spa
I have a hydro spa 810. Pump 1 fuse light is on. I switched fuses for pump 1 and 2. Pump 1 fuse light is still on, I'm assuming that this indicates fuse is not bad. pump 1 has not been used in a few years due to damage to wet end. I replaced wet end and motor spins freely. Where should I go from here.

If the air tube is still connected to the air button on the side of the tub and you are pushing it with no results then either the motor is no good, the air button is no good or the air switch in the box is no good.
process of elimination, start with the pump. take the switch off the motor or out of the box and make sure you can get the motor to come on. If the motor comes on then move to the air switch and hook it back up and see if you can blow into the air switch with a new air button or a straw and see if the switch will activate the pump. if it does then you most likely have a bad air button ($12). If you cannot get it to activate the pump then the air switch is bad ($21).

Yes sir, a bad motor coupler could cause the machine not to spin. You did the right thing in checking out the lid switch and the pump first. It sounds as if the motor coupling is worn and may be slipping. I will attach a link to a video that may assist you. Hope this helps and best wishes.

You don't need to replace the entire pump. The mechanical seal can be replaced quite easily by someone who knows what he is doing.
The only problem that you ma encounter is with removal of the pump impellor. It can take considerable force to unscrew the impellor from the pump shaft and there are special tools available to help although you may as well just leave the job to a professional. Sometimes the impellor can be seized onto the shaft, especially if it has been leaking for some time and if it's seized you will need to break the impellor off and buy a new impellor too.
I'm a spa tech from the UK and I replace these seals regularly, I'm actually replacing one tomorrow for a customer. If anyone in the UK is having a similar problem and need help please feel free to get in touch: http://hottub.synthasite.com

You will need to pull the front of the pump off then unscrew the impeller. The impeller will be set on the shaft and will take some force to break free. Hold ing the back of the shaft and using water pump pliers on the face of the impeller will usually work but sometimes I will wedge a screwdriver in the fin of the impeller and hit it sharply (not hard) with a hammer to break it free. Then the housing will just pull free of the motor. When replaceing, the impeller just goes on hand tight. Hope this helps and good luck.
