SOURCE: power switch for whirlpool tub
the easiest thing (maybe) is to install an air switch kit on the side of your tub. Here is a link to the part. Basically you install an air button on the side of the tub, install the air tubing from the nipple on the underside of the air button to the nipple on the box that plugs into an outlet under the tub. The pump plugs into that same box and the air tubing from the air button pushing onto the nipple on the box. When you push the button on the tub it will turn the pump on/off. Air Switch Kit

First step is to remove the old hardware so you have something to compare it to. THere are two types/sizes of tub faucets on the market for deck mounted applications. If yours is mounted on the tub deck then it is a deck mounted application.
The faucet spread (distance between the threaded nipples on the bottom of the faucet) is going to be something close to 8" or it will be of variable distance. If the two handles and the spout are connected via hose then they are of variable length.
Bring the old faucet into the hardware store and compare it so you know you are getting the correct one. It is not hard but also not fun to have to adjust the holes in the tub deck to accommodate a different size.
AS for the suction.....I am assuming that you are referring to the inlet part o the pumping system and all of the equipment behind the tub. I always recommend that you use parts from the same manufacturer. It is extremely helpful to call them with all of the numbers you have to get a list of acceptable replacement parts.
Hope this helps.

To my knowledge there are no closure caps for your tub; you can however purchase new jets with new seals if the tub is leaking through the jets.

Hello. There are two reset buttons in the mechanical space or your tub. You should be able to access that area from the front by removing a few screws. it is not uncommon to have to push those reset buttons after a power outage. If you do need a repair I recommend that you call a store that sells hot tubs as they will have a technician on staff or be able to guide you to one. Regards, Joe
