Question about Jacuzzi Pool & Spa

Jacuzzi pool pump delivers no water

Hi Our Jacuzzi Lazer 225 6/D has been primed, motor working but will not pump water into the swimming pool. Motor makes normal noise, but no water appears in little clear viewing bubble or in the pump inlet where you can see water swirling around through the plexiglass square viewer. Also, pump will not work on backwash, rinse, drain etc will not work. It was winterized but here, in Canada, the temps went down to 20F below zero for long periods. Also the trouble shooting section in the manual mentions possible blockages in the "suction" or "drainage" lines-but there is nothing labeled as such in the illustrations anywhere in the manual. Thank you so much for your help!!

Wow if it got that cold there id be winterizing with food grade antifreeze not just drainig it down, you could miss pockets of water here and there and produce a crack in housing someplace , as for trouble shooting a no flow situation try the ole standby method of methodical subsitution it's worked for 100 years , keep removing parts (start at suction line in pool) temporray out of system till flow starts then you know last part sub'd out was it!!!

SOURCE: pool pump won't prime

check for air leaks, cover o-ring is common culprit. anything in front of pump can cause this.

SOURCE: suction with my pump

First thing to check is the removal of any winterizing plugs in the return lines. Sometimes plugs are fitted inside the lines in the pool making them not obvious. Secondly, check that any valves in return line are open. Many never lube type valve handles are oppositely positioned as compared to ball valves. If the multiport valve hasn't been tampered with, then there really is no other place to look. The flows everywhere but back to pool.

SOURCE: Jacuzzi jet pump doesn't produce much bubbles

A broken jet internal would allow water to run back up the air lines and contaminate the air lines on all jets that are on the same manifold allowing no air to incorperate into the jets stream resulting in low pressure

SOURCE: looking for manual, exploded view for Jacuzzi

When you loosten the lock ring on the pump if it runs at all, just turn the pump on for a second and it will pop apart. If it dosen't run you will need to gently yet forcefully pry the halfs of the pump apart. As soon as you can get some liquid soap into the pump housing to lube it all the way around. I belive the seal plate on that one is set back into the housing about an inch or two. Excuse me, three to five mm, (Americans what are you gonna do) Don't use oil for this as it's not good for the plastic or the "O" ring. Although the skinny little tube that comes with penrtrating oil is the perfict way to get into this spot. As you work the seal plate out once you hit the soap it will seem to jump right out. This is the part most people have trouble with.
Once it's free, with the wireing unhooked. get it to a bench to safe guard the parts.
First you will remove the Diffuser or water slinger this is a cover over the impeller. (most of what I tell you will be kind of generick), this piece will have five or six screws holding it in place. When you pull it off their will be a wear ring (I think) this will go on the front of the impeller and just slides off, it may drop off when you pull the diffuser off. It has a wide end and a thin end the thin end goes to the impeller. Many of these are marked on a lot of pumps but it seems natchural to put the wide side to the impeller. This is not the case.
Now on many models their is a impeller screw in the center of the impeller holding it in place. This is a left hand screw. Simpley hold the impeller in place and turn the screw clockwise to loosten and remove it.
Depending on the style of motor you will have to go to the back of the motor and hold the shaft. Some have a small end cap that you pry off and hold the shaft with a wrench and some you remove the whole back caseing and need to get a small wrench into the shaft under the cintrifical switch that is mounted on the end of the shaft. be careful when you do this and if components on the back of the motor are giveing you a hard time getting around them, remove them, as you can break them or bend them. Once you have the shaft secure unscrew the impeller with your hand if you can (this is right handed) If you can't you may want to get someone to help hold the shaft for you and take a flat blade screwdriver and put it into a vein of the impeller and give it a gharp wack with a mallet to loosten it up and start it spinning. If you do this right some times it will come spinning off, so be careful not to let it go bouncing across the floor. At this point I get real foggy as to the type of seal that is in the pump. If half the seal came off with the impeller your in good shape. If the whole of the seal is still in the pump take a pair of waterpump pliers (Channel Locks) and grab the front half of the seal and wiggle back and forth to get it off the shaft. To remove ether type of seal you may have to worry it off as the rubber on the seal will stick to ether the motor shaft or the impeller shaft with time.
After the impeller is off and the front of the seal removed (pay strict attention to how the seal comes off as putting seals in backwards is common) All you need to do is remove the four bolts that hold the motor in place.
Reverse this proceidure when you put it back together. Being sure to lube all rubber on the seal and all "O" rings as you go. Once again don't use Vasoliene or oil to lube these as the petroleim will hurt the rubber. A silicone or teflone base grease is best. When spinning the impeller back on don't tighten it past snug as the left hand screw will hold it just fine an it will set it self the first time the motor kicks on. Be sure the wear ring goes on with the wide side out and the diffuser lines up the way you took it off. With the "O" rings lubed the whole thing should slide back together easly and set the lock ring, fill pump with water and your all set to go.
I hope you can follow my rambelings and good luck to ya.

SOURCE: New Intex FP621 4000 Pool Pump Noisy

I have a 16 x 48 intex pool with the 1inch inlet and outlet. I purchased the intex 4000 pump. The attachments are too big for the inlet and outlet so i then purchased the adapters. The plungers are very noisy and allow air to get into the pump. I removed them and hooked the hoses up to the adapters directly. That worked as long as the adapters were new. This year the seal comes loose and allows air to get into the pump. I even tried allowing the top nut to be loose to allow air to escape. This year nothing works. The pump is just too strong for the holes. I was considering cutting the holes bigger and glueing seals on there but i was concerned about creating weak spots in the pool. I am tired of spending money on it so i did the redneck thing. I can say that because well, you might consider me one. I took the inlet hose off the connector and plugged the hole with one of those little black things. I took the hose and run it up through the hole in between the liner and the poles and down into the pool. If you run it over the top it will not work correctly. Take the hose and tie them together between the two sides as best you can to keep the hose in the pool. If you look at the smaller intex pools that dont have holes, that is how they have the pump hooked to the pool. VOILA! You have an airtight inlet to the pump. You do not need to do that to the outlet because its not sucking water its just pushing it. So, just hook the hose up as you wish. When you need to clean the filter, I put wash clothes in the hoses to plug them and voila. No air gets into the filter. Done! It is actually keeping my pool clean this year. Also, i purchased one of those aqua vacuums and it does work great for this pool. Once you get the big stuff, sweep it with a pool broom and the filter will do its job. You can vacuum these pools with the filter type pumps. Next time, i will purchase a sand filter and be done with it. Happy swimming with less work.

I've got no water coming thru the side jets in my pool, even though water is pouring through the jacuzzi jets. The jacuzzi is all part of the pool.


This is an ether or situation. Most systems now are set up with three way valves and if you turn the jets on you will shut the pool returns down. If you turn the pool back on you will shut the spa jets off.

Pump motor will not turn over without manual priming?


All pumps need to be primed. The Self-Priming pumps still require water in the basket.
If water is not staying in the plumbing system when it is turned off, then you have a leak in one of the o-rings or the shaft seal.

How do you get the impella of a jacuzzi lr swimming pool pump


looking at he face of the impeller turn counter clockwise, with a large set of CHANNELLOCK 20" Pliers Channel Lock Model 480 cost about $70.00 there is a notch on the back of the motor shaft for ether a 1/2 or 7/16 open end wrench to fit in to hold the rotor from turning. warning ! these pumps are hard to find parts for so you want to have the right tool so you don't break anything. your best bet is to bring it to your local pool pump motor repair guy and have him do it, if its just the seal you are trying to replace it should be a $20 job
if'n i was any help vote ... thanks ..jay .. and prime the pump after a repair !

My Jet Pump Looses it's prime at night.


I assume the pump is not running at night. If the pump is higher than the pool, and the inlet and outlet to the pool are both under water, then you have a small leak. This could be allowing the water to leak out of the line. Or, if the leak is higher than the pool surface it is allowing air to leak into the line, which allows the prime to run down into the pool. If you found this useful, please vote. Thanks.
