I have a Viking Legend spa. One (1 of 4) of the water intake grates near the bottom was accidentally broken, and a small piece of plastic from the housing was sucked into the intake pipe. The piece is no more than an inch long and a couple cm's wide. I didn't immediately realize it, so the spa and pumps were run afterward. However, it doesn't appear to have affected the spa adversely - the pumps seem to run normally, and I don't hear any rattling or out of the ordinary noises. My obvious concern is the plastic piece entering one of the pumps. So - does anyone have recommendations on what step(s) to take next? For example, should I drain the spa and try to push it back out by refilling through the skimmer? Also, does the pump have a screen or some type of filter that further protects it from debris? Suggestions welcome, and thanks in advance.
