If you want to replace your pump, referring to the brand of your spa will not give you the necessary information. The dimensions of the pump and/or the wet end to be changed are obviously important, but the informations on the label on the motor (or more rarely the wet end) are even more essential: they give you the brand of the pump or its motor, the series, the type (single or two-speed), the power, etc.

Same dimensions, similar looks and similar colours: it is very easy for the customer to confuse the Waterway and CMP clip-on jets, which are however not compatible with each other. Tubs.fr explains how to choose the right brand to replace your jet.
All hot tubs are equiped with some sort of way of detecting that there is water flowing through the heater.
