Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

Your motor bearings are failing. It is most often caused by a leaking pump seal. It is a relatively inexpensive repair if it is caught early enough; before the shaft is damaged from the corrosive water eating into the steel. Take it to a local electric motor repair shop for inspection. It will likely need a set of 203 bearings for the motor and a mechanical seal for the pump. All told, depending on the labor rates, it should be less than $75. You could try to repair this yourself however if you are not familiar with the process it is money well spent having someone who is do the repair for you.

Hi on my uncles spa pump the blower works but every time we push the button to get the jets it makes a clicking noise in the control board but the motor won't kick in and pump the water jets?


I will make an educated guess and say that clicking noise is either the relay for the pump would indicate a dead pump or it could be from a rectification capacitor. Beyond that though we kind of need a more detailed electrical diagnostic for your exact circumstance

The water jets in most spas are adjustable so you can turn the water flow down to just a trickle if you want to.
You don't take current spa jets out of the spa. They are held in place by a couple of tabs. Through the years the chlorine/bromine will deteriorate those tabs and the spa jets will start "popping" out when the jets get turned on.
If you pull the jet insert out the socket they are in, you will ruin the jet insert and it will need to be replaced.

20+ year old Gould 1/2 hp jet pump in basement pulling my water from a deep well. It has become very loud whenever it turns on. Is there a way to lubricate it? my plumber says no...leave it alone. but...


Any pump that makes more noise that a small hum when operating is going out. Either the windings or a bearing is wearing out.
I would suggest you get it fixed by a motor shop or replaced before an emergency presents itself.

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.

Zodiac Baracuda Zippy Pool Cleaner only clean one pool side because strong jet don't let move to other side


If you don't have directonal eyeballs on your jet's you can get a dirveter for the jet that will push the water down the wall rather than out into the pool. Get these at your local pool store. Baracuda and Kreepy Krawlie both make them.
