Spa Pumps and Blowers
Most U.S. and Canadian made spas contain pumps made by several spa pump manufacturers including Waterway, Laing, Hayward, Pentair, Sta-rite and more. Spa pumps come in either 48 frame or 56 frame sizes. ELM carries all major pump brands and sizes.
Spa pumps are made up of two main components: the pump motor which turns the impellor or the wet end which contains the impellor.
The spa pump impellor in the wet end of the pump is turned by the pump motor and moves water through the system by centrifugal force. The impellor pulls water from the suctions and pushes water out of the pump discharge.
ELM carries both 1-speed and 2-speed hot tub pumps in various HP and voltage configurations. The Waterway Executive series of spa pumps offer different styles such as center discharge or side discharge. The wet end on these pumps can actually be rotated in 90 degree increments to accommodate various plumbing systems.
ELM Sales and Equipment stocks replacement spa pumps for immediate shipping across Canada as well as a wide variety of pump spare parts and wet ends.

Innovative hydraulic engineering makes a Starite-Pentair spa pump a reliable selection. These types of pumps are often found in swimming pools. Spa model pumps include the Dura-Jet pump, which is also available in a 50hz version.
Other pump brands that ELM stocks include Hayward Pumps, Waterway Executive, Waterway Ultra Jet and Aqua Flo Pumps.
Spa air blowers provide the bubbles that are delivered into the spa water through air channels or air injectors.
Instead of just relying on venturi air from a jet to create more water flow, the air blower forces warm spa cabinet air through the spa water.
A common cause of spa blower failure is moisture inside of a spa blower which can cause a short circuiting condition. Check valves and U-bends are utilized in the production of spas to prevent water from entering the spa blower.
Pump Seals for Hot Tubs
A leak near a pump is often caused by a bad pump seal. Pump seal kits are available for many different pump types, and contain all of the seals in the pump. Alternatively, there are also single pump shaft seals which can fix a leaky pump. Other hot tub pump parts include the drain plugs which are for draining water from the pump before winterizing the spa, anti-vibration pads, pump brackets and various pump accessories. See the ELM Sales and Equipment Catalogue for a complete selection of spa pumps and pump parts.
Hot Tub Circulation Pump
ELM carries spa circ pumps including Waterway, Pentair and Laing. The well known Tiny Might circ pump by Waterway is used in many spas and is a 1/16HP, 1" in and out circulation pump available in either 120V or 240V configuration.
