When pumps leak it is usually from either a bad O-Ring or bad Seal Assy. If you see no obvious cracks in the pump plastic housing then you will need to drain spa, remove pump from spa and then remove the front face plate of the pump, just inside the face plate you will see the oring, you may want to replace this o-ring anyway. Then you have an Impeller that spins, you need to hold the shaft of the motor with pliers or wrench then rotate the impeller counter clockwise to unscrew it from the motor shaft. Behind this impeller is the two part seal assembly. One part is on the back of the impeller and the other metal part is in the other half of the plastic housing seated over the shaft of the motor. You can google a you tube video on how to replace a pool pump seal assembly to see the process. Once these have been replaced reassemble and you should be good.
