Durable Waterway Executive 56 Spa Pumps are simple to install and provide years of trouble-free use. Because of our huge buying power, you'll pay less for a complete new hot tub pump (motor & wet end) than some others charge for just a replacement motor.

Choosing a pump based on Horsepower (HP) can be misleading. The horsepower listed in your spa manual or on old pump's label may be overinflated, inaccurate, or even left blank. Horsepower ratings are often listed as Break Horsepower (BHP), which is not the same as continuous horsepower. Selecting a pump with too much power for your spa can cause significant damage.
To avoid choosing the incorrect pump, use the Amperage rating listed on the old pump's label to find the correct replacement instead of the horsepower. The amperage rating is listed with both high/low speed for a 2 speed pump.
Determining Spa Pump Plumbing Size
Pump plumbing sizes are nominal and not actual outside diameter (O.D.) of the threaded intake or discharge. Use a tape measure and check the diameter of your old pump thread size.
- 1.5” Pump thread measures approx. 2-3/8” O.D.
- 2.0” Pump thread measures approx. 3” O.D.
- 2.5” Pump thread measures approx. 3-5/8”
Orientation of Wet End
Pump wet ends can be oriented in 90º increments to meet your installation requirements. Loosen the four through-bolts from the back of the motor and pull them back enough to disengage. Then rotate the wet end to the desired position realign and re-tighten the bolts.
Side or Center Discharge
The two spa pump form factors refer to the outflow or discharge fitting on the Wet End. Your old pump will be either Center Discharge or Side Discharge.
In most cases you need to match the existing form factor to get the components to match up. If you can use either form, select Side Discharge, which is more efficient than a Center Discharge pump of the same horsepower.
Motor Frame Size
The physical size of the pump motor is referred to as frame. Spa main pumps will have a size of either 48 frame, which are approx. 5.5" diameter, or 56 frame, which are approx. 6.5" diameter.
Since motor manufacturers do not label frame size consistently, you should determine a motor's frame size by measuring the spacing between the through-bolts on the back of the motor. Bolt spacing on a 48 frame motor will be less than 4 inches. A 56 frame motor's bolts will be spaced more than 4 inches apart.
Note: Because of their lower cost and compact size, most spa pumps in service are 48 frame. The larger 56 frame motors are a little more expensive and somewhat stronger. They tend to operate a bit cooler than 48 frame units, which can mean longer service life.
Configuring a Pump for 2 or 1 Speed Use
Our 2-speed pumps can easily be configured for 1-speed. Wire the common and high speed terminal connections, while leaving the low speed terminal blank.
It works great!
Soo excited about this pump. Works great, quiet, and does what it is supposed to. Upgraded to the 4HP pump from the 3 1/2. Why cheap out on a pump which is the life and enjoyment of your hot tub. Easy to install as well.
Will use once warm enough to access my hot ton.
Only lasted two years and now have to replace it again. Original pump lasted 8 years.
I shopped around and again, SpaDepot was the best experience and price.
It was very easy to find and order the correct pump for my MasterSpa on the SpaDepot website. The price was much lower than the Masterspa parts website and was the same pump. Great value! The pump was shipped and delivered ered as indicated on the website. I have ordered other parts for our spa from SpaDepot and the cost savings and customer service has been outstanding!
My motor stopped going into high just stays in low I don't know why. When I put it in both speeds were working?!!
Good Product...Great Price...Phenomenal Customer Service
