Hell, can you first verify if the attached manual is your unit?
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
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.
No, just a pic where I can see the whole circuit board is fine
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.
Hi, was just following up to see if this got you all the information you needed or if you still needed some help. The question keeps popping back up on my end until you rate me. If you need anything else, please let me know and I'll be happy to help. If we're all done, just rate me on your end and the question will close out. Thanks, Jeff
Sounds good, let me know if you need anything. Jeff
So is there no pump at all? Just wondering since you were asking about the wiring whether you have the pump or not?
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.
