Pump Are You Looking For?
Low Folow Circulation
Pump that runs 24/7 See
2 Speed. On models with only ONE jet pump that is 2
speed, its likely a 115v motor (check actual motor).

Understanding generations of Jacuzzi Hot Tub
Jacuzzi has evolved through different jet pumps.
2002-6/2009 48 Frame
Used a discontinued
Jacuzzi wetend and had a 48 frame and a standard
pump motor with "bracket" or a welded foot on the
motor for it to stand.
Used an AquaFlo wetend
with a welded foot 56 frame motor.
Three: 2009-Present 48 Frame
2009 and since
their motors have no welded "bracket" but the
bracket and motor are separate. When you replace the
motor you reuse the bracket. Also the bracket makes
aligning the motor to the plumbing so much easier.

This generation uses the newer style JPS
pump with a 56
5/2009-Present 56 Frame w/LX Motor
This generation uses an LX Motor and
Yes, it's a bit confusing but think
it this way:
Models with a 48fr 230v motor had 2
generation wetends. The wetends are not
interchangable. The 48fr went from a motor with a
welded bracket to current motor with no bracket.
Models with a 56fr 230v motor were made in the US
(Emerson) and China (LX). Parts are not
interchangable. The early use of Emerson motor did
have a bracket and current does not. The LX motor
never had a bracket.
How to identify which
wetend you have.
Jacuzzi 48 frame are their own
design. 56 frame are either Aquaflo or LX wetends.
