  1. Let me know how it goes. I'll have to open the broken pump soon enough to repair it. But for now, I've got to track down a slow leak now... 🤦‍♂️
  2. Hey there, Yeah, it worked well for quite awhile, and then just in the last week the noise returned "buzzing" type of sound -- which i am guessing is vibration as the shaft wore down and allowed for the impeller to move laterally instead of just spinning. For the original impeller, the blades were no longer connected to the magnet. If yours is okay, then maybe just trying the fluval shaft to get you going will be enough -- or maybe find a non-reactive metal bar and cut it to length..
  3. Hello, I figured I would come back here and report progress. So today the replacement impeller bit the dust. I haven't opened it yet, but that's just a few months of use, not what I was hoping for. I will open the unit again soon and see what broke this time. If I had to guess, it will be the ceramic shaft that broke and I'm working that it might be as easy as finding a good metal shaft. So for everybody out there, the fluval shaft worked.. but you'll be using 3-4 of them a year... maybe $150-200 is acceptable, better than $800 for a pump unit every year, but still not
  4. The cover provides a great deal of the insulation necessary so that your tub will stay warm. I dont know if your heater could or could not keep up with the heat loss; but it would be terribly inefficient if you didnt cover it, even if it could.
  5. I dont have a bestway spa, but this may help, a bit of google-fu. https://support.bestwayaftersales.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/E02-Error-Code-Troubleshooting.pdf
  6. Hi, I dont know anything about the bestway spas, but I found this on google.. maybe helpful:
  7. I do not have a Netspa Izy, but a Canadian Spa Compay Swift Current V2, but on my unit E5 means that an over-temperature condition has occured and tripped the unit to turn off. I would re-check your pipes and maybe your filter if it is integrated with your pump to see if you are actually getting water flow.. or as it's running check your jets. Having said that, it's brand new, maybe call the company or the retailer to ask.
  8. Hello all, I opened an account just to post this because after weeks of digging, I may have found my solution and wanted to share to help other owners. Symptoms: Loud grinding type noise from the PCU (Portable control unit), low water flow, and sometimes a over-temperature error. Cause: Broken magnetic impeller Repair: Purchase a Fluval 304/5 Impeller and replacement Ceramic Shaft from your local aquarium supply shop or commonly found on the internet Guide: https://support.canadianspacompany.com/en/support/solutions/articles/6000223884-v2-portable-control-unit-d
