    I was thinking there might be a more appropriate place for this but I
    haven't found one yet. Anyhow I recently aquired a hot tub with an Aqua-flo
    FloMaster XP 4.5 HP pump which came to me partially disasembled and missing
    a few bits. I had first thought I'd just buy a whole new pump but after
    realizing they're close to $400 I decided to take a shot at rebuilding this
    one. Before I break it, does anyone know how to remove the impeller? Does it
    just pull off the shaft, or is it threaded, and if so which direction is the
    thread? I know I need to get that off since the shaft seal is shot, the
    start and run caps are also missing but the windings pass the visual
    inspection and ohm meter check and the bearings feel ok which leads me to
    believe there's a good chance this thing will be fine with a bit of effort.
    Unfortunatly there doesn't seem to be much info on this particular pump
    online.

    Actually I did quite a bit of poking around in Google, lots of places
    selling similar pumps, lots of places selling parts, but very few hits on
    the specific series of pumps I have. Google is only as good as the search
    terms one can think up.
