Hell, can you first verify if the attached manual is your unit?

There is nothing attached. I believe the manual I've attached is for my spa. What next

Can you attach a picture of the inside of the cabinet below the spa, so I can see what exactly is missing, you might need to take a few different ones. The manual doesn't really tell us pump or blower sizes, but If I can see the plumbing you're referring to where something is missing, I should be able to get you set up with what you need. Thanks, Jeff

I will take some pics today. How many would you like?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
OK. I believe it is the circulation pump that is missing as both existing pumps are 3450 rpm. I believe it would attach to the left end of the heater (2" female) and the top of circ pic which is 1.5" female. My concern is not only getting the right pump, but the actual connection to the panel. Looks kind of like a flat 4 connector. Does this help or do you need more pics?
Thanks,
Charles
Pool and Spa Expert: poolguy810, owner - pool and spa service company replied 1 year ago

Yes, the connection end is called an amp plug, very common on spas, so that's not an issue. Can I see a picture of the inside of the control box, so I can see the circuit board.

I can do that tonight. Is there any part of the board in particular you're looking for?
Pool and Spa Expert: poolguy810, owner - pool and spa service company replied 1 year ago

No, just a pic where I can see the whole circuit board is fine

Pool and Spa Expert: poolguy810, owner - pool and spa service company replied 1 year ago

Sorry for the delay, been swamped with spas. Ok, so the new pump will plug in to J23 on the circuit board, that particular socket on the board is wired for a 220 volt pump, so that's what we'll need, then if you're saying that it's got a 1.5 inch connection on the suction, then we need a 1.5 inch 2 speed 220 volt pump. (###) ###-####15 is the part number for the pump, although there are other brands that would work also, but I prefer Waterway pumps as far as warranty and reliability. 9711-97 is the chord you'll need to hook the pump to the board as they normally don't come with a chord on them. Whomever you order the pump from might include the chord, but you'll have to specify that you need an AMP chord, 4 pin, for a two speed pump. If they don't include it, then just order one separately.

You'll also need a(###) ###-####heater tail piece that will attach to the heater nut. This is a 2" thread that reduces to 1.5" pvc socket so you can transition from the 2" heater union to the 1.5" pump suction.

Pool and Spa Expert: poolguy810, owner - pool and spa service company replied 1 year ago
is the heater union gasket you'll need if you don't have one already. Now in one of your pictures, it looks like you might already have the connection pipe that goes from the front of the pump to the heater union. If you already have that piece that's 2 inches on the heater side and then has a 1.5 inch union on the pump side, then you won't need those additional plumbing pieces. Just let me know and I can get you any other part numbers you're missing to for the hook up. Thanks, Jeff

My first question is how do I know which is the high speed wire for motor?
Pool and Spa Expert: poolguy810, owner - pool and spa service company replied 1 year ago

So is there no pump at all? Just wondering since you were asking about the wiring whether you have the pump or not?

Ask Your Own Pool and Spa Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I bought the pump and cord listed above. You even told me where to plug in on the board, J23. The pump shows a diagram but I am concerned about switching the high speed and low speed wires as I have no way of knowing which is which on the board. I can probably figure out the pump with a little research. Can you help?
Pool and Spa Expert: poolguy810, owner - pool and spa service company replied 1 year ago

Ok, on the back of the motor, the white will always go to the C or common terminal. Now normally red is high speed and black is low. It won't hurt anything if you accidentally have them switched. The way you'll know for sure is when is plugged into the board turn on the spa and wait, the pump should start up in low speed, then if you hit the jet 1 button, it should go to high speed. If it starts on high and goes to low when you hit the button, just reverse toast 2 wires. Sometimes I have to experiment with them that way if we don't know ahead of time. It's no big deal.

Thanks!
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It seems like the pump is physically too long. Is it possible this is the wrong pump, or that there is a smaller pump out there. The motor cannot slide back far enough. There is a hose in the way, but even if I move that, it seems like the motor will be right up against the tub. I have pics, but cant get them attached
