Sundance Spa - Grinding Noise + White Crystals on Pump

Recommended Posts

We recently acquired a house with a 2018 Sundance Peyton hot tub.

breaker was found to be inoperable and replaced. This resulted in hot tub functioning. 

motor or pump (suspect the pump) has started making a grinding noise. Removed the panel to find a few things:

- white crystal stuff on pump

- pump spitting small amounts of water through holes

- small water dripping out of bottom of pump when switched off

- grinding noise of pump

find a video attached which I hope is helpful in identifying my root causes as well as how to resolve them.

this is our first hot tub ownership experience and hope to get this resolved asap

Video unavailable. Sounds like you need a pump rebuild. Impeller, Shaft Seal, face plate o-ring and front bearing. If the face plate of the pump is dripping at the screws it may have been frozen at some point and may be deformed as a result. If you are not DIY handy you might consider complete replacement. If you want recommendations for a pump post pics of the white tag on the motor as well as the complete pump where we can see the wet end of the pump and it's plumbing connections.
