Is it time for a new HotSprings Spa
replacement pump? Maintaining your spa both chemically and keeping the spa in good repair are just a few ways to extend the useful life of any spa. Chemically, keeping the water balanced may help reduce costly parts replacements later on. Maintaining good water flow, temperature, and filtration will help the chemicals do their job better and potentially cheaper.
Hot Spring Spas make it really easy to own, operate and maintain your spa. Taking just a few minutes each week to make sure the water is chemically balanced and sanitized is all you need. Also, make sure to clean your filters once a month to maintain water clarity as well as help to extend the life of both pumps and heating elements. When your filters get clogged, regardless of brand, your pump must work harder to recirculate the water. With reduced pressure through the lines, the heating element may turn on/off causing both higher electrical bills, as well as shorter heater life.
With reguards to the Circulation Pump - Silent Flo 5000, used in HotSpring and Tiger River spas, there have been many questions about the new replacement. The new pump ( we refer to it as the E5 ), is significantly smaller. This is due to newer requirements by the State of California for energy efficiency. It will work similarly to the one you are replacing, it will just require less energy. If your pump is starting to make some noises or perhaps starting to smoke a little bit, you should take a look at the pump and replace it.
A few things you can look at replacing on your spa pump include: checking the o-rings, gaskets and fittings to make sure they are in good condition and sealing properly.
