Replacement Spa And Hot Tub Pumps

Some Common Aqua-Flo Questions 

Finding a replacement pump seems to be difficult. Things we come across is customers looking for the correct part number to cross reference. One of the most common is Horsepower....pump manufacturers such as Aqua-Flo by Gecko label pumps for example with a SPL ranking which is confusing to most consumers. Here is an example 3.6 SPL HP which leads customers to look for a 3.6 HP replacement spa or hot tub which does not exist. If you have any similar questions please contact us at 1-800-927-6110 to help you find the correct pump or parts you may be having trouble with to make your purchase correct.

Choosing a replacement spa and hot tub pack / system

There are many choices out there for your spa and hot tub pack / system, how do you know which one to get? Hydroquip has many options to choose from. From a simple one pump set up to a multiple pump, circulation pump, blower, and many more...

Leisure Bay Spas has recently gone out of business and their circuit boards and spa packs are pretty much impossible to get a hold of....we've found that Hydro-quip has been a good option for Leisure Bay customers to keep there Spas and Hot Tubs up and running, so don't give up when you can't find the exact replacement circuit board or topside control for your Leisure Bay Spa...

Should You Repair or Replace Your Spa Pump?

Common Question...
  1. Water is leaking from the shaft area can it be fixed? In Most Cases Yes
  2. Can you walk me through how to fix my pump wet end? Yes
  3. Do you have parts to fix my pump wet end? Yes
Reasons to buy a complete spa or hot tub pump vs replacing wet end parts...
  1. Motor shaft has extreme corrosion damage to it.
  2. Motor is over 5 years old.
  3. Bearing is making noise from water damage.
  4. Complete motor with wet end has factory warranty

  With today's economy cost for people is always an issue and here at Spa Parts Depot we give our customers reasonable options to maintain there pumps with an honest reason to use just parts instead of having to replace the complete pump if not needed. Yes parts do add up but a repair can cost less than a complete motor and is not that difficult to do, myself I'm not a rich man so if I can save a few hundred dollars and repair my spa wet end myself that's a few hundred dollars that can be spent elsewhere...a lot of website companies don't have the knowledge or staff to help people fix there pumps so would rather sell a complete pump to a customer instead of taking the time to help the customer save money and walk them through the repair, don't be sucked into that scenario...

We have a web site dedicated to spa and hot tub pumps and parts, if you don't see what you need and have ANY question contact us at is the link
