Your spa’s pump has a big job. It keeps the waters moving through the jets to get the pulsating, bubbling effect that provides the soothing and relaxing experience you crave. It also keeps the water clean and free of bacteria by moving it through the filter and distributes the heat to help keep the water warm. Without a working pump, the hot tub is essentially useless.
Since it’s such an important part of your hot tub’s functionality, it’s important to keep it working properly. Regular maintenance is a must, as is paying close attention to any signs or symptoms that there may be something wrong with it. Depending on how well you maintain it, it will probably last from 5-10 years.
How Hot Tub Pumps Work
If you’re familiar with pumps found in pools, wells, and even cars, then you’ll know that the design of a spa pump is very similar to these others. An electric motor can be found inside the pump. A metal shaft then extends out of the pump, and into an adjacent chamber. This part of the shaft of the pump is where a turbine is located, which rotates like blades in a fan.
Two pipes connect this shaft to the chamber, and when the turbine spins after the pump is started, water is pulled in from one pipe and forced out through the other. Where the pump is directed will depend on the fans’ design, as well as the direction that the turbine turns.
