Why Did the Jets in My Hot Tub Stop Working?

Im renting the first floor of a nice house with a hot tub. Id been using it a lot. One day i turned it on and the jets werent working, the water was just flowing out through a place near the floor where i think the water normally comes from as it passes the heater. What causes this? How do I fix it? What would happen if i let it run as is?

      On the pump there is a small hose, about 3/8 in or less in diameter. That is the air swith hose. Make sure it is connected on both ends. At the motor and the switch by the tub deck.

      Check for a blown fuse first. Pump might have failed also.

      one of the pumps is probably out, or you could have a short somewhere. locate the wiring schematics and figure out where the problem is and make the repair

      maybe they are full of trash (hair and such) or maybe the oump motor has gone out

      I hope this is not the problem, but we had a hot tub, and rats crawled over the telephone lines, came in and chewed through all the plumbing that connected the water to the jets. Something to think about.

      Obviously you have a leak. Most likely sources are , the oznator hose, the pump unions and the heater couplings. Another very possible localtion would be the seal that keeps the water inside the pump has failed due to corrosion. If you could take picutres and post them of hte area it would help in figuring out where the leak is. Hopefully the seals/gaskets where the jets fit int the tub are not the source of the leaks. They are the toughest to fix. It would be great to know the year, make and model of the tub too.
