Hi, I have an 2010 Arctic Spa Tundra. Recently pump 2 stopped working. I took it apart and found that the impeller shaft broke off. I am trying to find the same impeller to install but there is no part number on it. The most I can find is BF and the green, brown, blue, red, and black stripes. Here are some photos of the parts/damage: https://imgur.com/a/DnUnFFi Can anyone help me locate this impeller? The inlet/outlet of the pump is 2.5" and 2" if that helps. Let me know if any more info is necessary to find the correct part. Edit: I think I found the part. Can anyone confirm I have this correct: https://arctichottubparts.com/impeller-pentair-1-spd-north-american.html Also I was going to pick up the seal assembly as well just in case (is this the correct one): https://arctichottubparts.com/pump-wet-end-viton-seal-assembly-pentair.html Thanks!
Hey guys, first post here, looking to get some insight. I've got an older Sunrise Spa hot tub that I picked up off craigslist 5 years ago. Until I mothballed it for a year to rebuild my house the thing worked great, especially for what i paid for it. Now I've relocated it into it's new home under my deck and a bunch of problems have come up I assume from sitting for a year. First thing i noticed once i got all wired up was one of my 2 motors was seized, I'd hit the jet button and I'd hear a buzz in the motor, but it wouldn't spin, even after breaking the shaft free. So I enlisted the help of a good friend of mine who works at a local Motor & Pump repair facility, they work on stuff from spa sized up to 1000hp industrial size. Before he got to my house, the other motor which was working, also died, same symptoms, motor buzzes, doesn't spin. At that point i also noticed my Recirculating pump seal was gone and flinging water everywhere of the shaft. We pulled all the pumps and motors out of the tub and he took everything apart, all my motors appear to be fine, capacitors seem to be alright, bearings are OK, but not great and since we have everything apart we're replacing all the seals and bearings. Unfortunately during the disassembly process, both of my impellers got destroyed because the shafts had gotten so corroded. I looked at the impellers which had tons of part numbers on them for all different HP ratings. So I saw my motors said executive 48, 5.0HP, so i ordered 5hp impellers. This is where my problem/question comes in. The impellers showed up and they're different, they're about 1/4" thicker then my factory impellers, same exact diameter. So I looked closer at my stock ones and noticed near one of the fins inside the impeller it says 3hp. So my question is, can i run this 5hp impeller on my 5.0hp motor? or should i go through the extra expense and hassle of swapping it out to a 3hp impeller? What negative effects might i see running this 5hp impeller? Thanks.
Our poolpump took in alot of air and i think the bearings broke cause it sounds really bad. There is no water leakage. The problem is that I can't get the impeller off. I use a flat screwdriver in the back of the motor and then turn the impeller counterclockwise but i have to use all my strenght to get it to turn. But it will not unscrew. It feels almost like it's slipping. Am apparently doing something wrong, but what? Poolpump: Speck Badu 90/7
