Question about Leisure Pool & Spa

1 Answer

I have a Leisure Bay G3 pump 2 works fine but pump 1 labors and eventually quits with the breaker tripping afterward.

Could the suction and discharge lines have debris in them or is the pump shot? Also, what is the pump part number? This pump operates the waterfall.

SOURCE: AC breaker trips after 10 minutes

Whats the amp breaker? Is this for the inside unit or the outside condenser? If the inside and gas heat you have a bad fan motor, If its an electric furnace , the same, but if its the outside unit, the fan could be going bad, locking up and the compressor still runs and pulls high ampsand tripps breaker or the compressor is just pulling too many amps due to plugged coils with dirt , grass or weeds blocking airflow.(koolbreezes74401@yahoo.com)

SOURCE: pump makes loud humming sound, does not pump,

Pull out the oil inspection plug and check oil. It is filled with mineral oil and should appear clear. If milky it would indicate faulty seals. The tsurumis are overheating often in skimmer box applications where the top of the pump is not submersed when the skimmer intake screen gets plugged. Tsurumi no longer accepts pumps for repair at their US facility. If you contact them they may refer you to a recommended rebuilder. It is a shame as we have sold hundreds of these the last 4 years and have suddenly had a rash of this similiar complaint in the last few months with little success in repairing. We have since dropped this line and replaced with Atlantic water Garden Pumps in similiar sizes.

SOURCE: Rule H53sp-24 pool cover pump trips GFI breaker

GFI devices are prone to degrade over time. Also, when used outdoors there are additional moisture issues that may cause sufficient current leakage to trip the breaker.

I had a similar problem this Spring. I was using a 20 amp GFI "master" outlet that protected two additional outlets 'downstream' of it (wired to the 'load' terminals on the GFI outlet- I'd have the check the doc. to see what terminology was used here). The pump was plugged into one of the downstream outlets.

Replacing the GFI seemed to solve the problem. I did ante up $20 for an 'outdoor' model of the 20 amp GFI unit, several bucks more than the standard 'indoor' unit - have no ideal if that represented additional value or not.

Note also, that this is the third such pump I have used for my pool cover. The other two failed to come on at all after about a year's use. The mfg replaced them under warranty (I may have had to send back the old pump - I forget!).

It sounds like the pump motor has shorted. Probably time to invest in another one.

Why doesnt my leisure bay spa get hot


This could be caused by a couple things. In order for your spa to heat your pump must be working, your heater and heater sensors must be good. If your heater is bad usually the breaker will trip. If that's not happening read below...
Does water shoot out of the jets when you press the jets 1 button? If not then you have a bad pump or the pump is air locked. The heater can't turn on if the pump does not push water through the heater. You'll know if this is happening because you'll get an error code on your control pad.
So your jets are working but no heat. This is the most common problem. Your spa has a sensor that tells the spa if it's ok to turn the heater on. That sensor is prone to failure so everything can be fine but the heater will not turn on. Get the model number off your spa pack and click the link below. Call and tell them you need a pressure switch and give them the model number. Install the new switch and you're back in action.

I would first try turning the drain valve off. If it quits getting stuck then maybe that is the solution. If so then maybe you can open the drain valve only slightly and it will still not get stuck. If it gets stuck even with the drain valve off then you guess is as good as mine.

I hope this helps.

No suction for pool vac


If you are not getting any suction to the vacuum, but the pump is working fine the rest of the time, start by checking all of your connections that conncets the cleaner to the filter and pump. Make sure there are no cracks, lose hoses, etc. Then, check for the following common problems with your pump that might cause low pressure in pool pumps:

1) Pump not primed

2) Leakage of air into suction system

3) Impeller clogged

4) Valve in suction or discharge line partly closed; Suction or discharge

line partly plugged or too small.

5) Plugged basket in skimmer or hair in lint strainer

6) Dirty filter.

Pump plugged in to grounded receptacle trips the


If by "trips the breaker" you mean the GFI then you are leaking current to ground, GFI's trip when there is an imbalance between the current going to the motor on the HOT side and returning from the motor on the NEUTRAL side, if it is tripping the GFI it is likely the sign of a failing motor.
