I bought his pump about 3 months ago. Worked great for the pool. The other night I decided to fire up the hot tub, which is conjoined to the pool. (same pump, just two manual valves to switch). The pump would go into "failure" after about 15 minutes. Pain in the *** to get out and reset. I searched this problem, and discovered the "prime time" situation. I changed it to the 3 minute mode, and Viola! It is working great. No errors. I did notice that the filter gauge hit about 30 PSI in the prime mode. This may be what was causing the "failure"; too much back pressure. I run the pump on about 2750 RPM for the hot tub, which only hits about 20 PSI. Thanks to all who posted, which helped me in my hot tub dilemma!
