No pressure showing as jet pump runs

My water was running into the tub last night and all of a sudden the water stopped running. I went down to the basement and the jet pump was running with no pressure showing on the gauge. I hooked a hose up from my neigbors to out side faset and the gauge shows 40 lb of pressure but when I hit the shut off valve it slowly goes to 0. What could be wrong...possible hole in line going to foot valve??

Correct. Either the foot valve, jet valve or leathers. If you pull the well, replace them all, and double the leathers.

Oil type substance is streaking down the side of the tub and apperars to be coming out of the jets any ideas how to fix it


This sounds like bacteria coming from the water lines. When was the last time you ran a cleaner through the jets?
You should run a good Jet Clean type product of Maintenance Product in order to prevent the build up of bacteria in the water lines when the bath tub is not in use.

Maxx jetted tub quit pumping water, pump motor just races.


When the bath pump runs and you get no water going through the jets in your bath Jet trim then the impeller has probably spun off the shaft of the motor.You will not know if this is the case until you take the bath pump out and remove the front cover of the bath pump and check the impeller.If this is the case it usually has to be replaced.

Hot tub is leaking


How severe is the leak?
Is the water level dropping when the tub is not in use? If so you will need inspect the back (inside the tub) portion of each jet. There is a gasket and nut on the backside of each jet body, these may come loose for crack.
If your leak is only when you have the pump running, your leak could be on the suction or discharge side of the pump. Only leaking when there is water pressure.
A temporary fix is Fix-A-Leak - a water treatment that will temporarily repair any crack up to 1/8". Its no guarantee but might help.

look on the back of the motor there should be a shaft that you can try to turn to spin free because something inside the pump is blocking it. rate me if this is helpful.

No jet flow hot springs highlife 1990


you might have an air lock, when you first start filling the spa, start the water running in the skimmer first. that should force air out of the pump and should pick up prime right away. if not, you may have a valve problem.
