Hi, I've had my spa ALMOST 5 years and I have

Hi, I've had my spa ALMOST 5 years and I have started noticing these little ball bearings INSIDE THE SPA. I can't remember how long the warranty is, I'm thinking 5 years ( I hope ). Anyway one motor has a ON AND OFF buttton while the other motor has a OFF, LOW AND HIGH button. The motor with the low side seldom if ever turns off. Thanks Robert Glasscock. (318) 470-9759

The balls are out of the spinning jets, expensive if you need 20 or 20, can replace with fixed ones at low cost

SOURCE: High speed spa pump shuts off

The motor may have a thermal cutoff if the motor draws too much current. Do you have a sufficient large gauge circuit supplying the motore? If not the actual voltage at the motor may drop, causing it to draw more current to make up for the loss of voltage, thereby tripping the motor's protective breaker. I assume the motor will start again after serveral minutes of cooling down.

if it is a used pump, these have a tendency to have a little rust. just get some pump pliers and rock the shaft gently back and forth. then plug it back in.

SOURCE: Pump will not work in high speed

Clean the relay contacts on the board. Cut the power, ofcourse. Also, try switching the hot wire on the low side of the pump to the high side to rule out the pump.

What are the side effects over years of use


Ball Bearing needs to change.there is inside the pump a mechanic seal that with the time, leaks water and rust the ball bearing balls and making rusted the shaft .
The pump at this time gets Humming when works.
Pump humming or making noise is not a good working pump.
must be quiet without noise

Spa don't want to start


how long the Spa was without use?
Maybe you need to disassembly the pump and make the shaft turns to unlock the shaft. sometimes the ball bearings are rusted.

Usualy if it is some years the ball bearing on the motor shaft are rusty and if you can desasemble and use a UD40 lubricant or similar it can be fixed, or replace the bearing. One more posible case is the starting capacitor if it replaced can run the motor again.

I found silver balls in my pool pump basket


Do you have a robotic or automatic pool cleaner? If so, inspect the bearings in them for failure. Otherwise, is it possible they were tossed in by something outside the pool? Your motor bearings would have a very hard time coming apart and allowing the balls from inside the bearings to migrate to the pool.
