    Help! (again) Spa Pump "spitting"

    So when I was gearing up to get in my spa this evening, which is sunken into the floor of my sunroom, I noticed that the water was luke and the control panel was dark. So I opened the hatch to my crawl space and found a bunch of standing water on the floor and the GFCI for the outlet where my spa is plugged in was tripped. I reset the breaker an turned the spa on to try to locate the origin of the leak. It seems that my pump is leaking...there is not water actually dripping or pouring out, instead the pump appears to be "spitting" water from where there is a rotating rod.

    I just installed a brand new spa pack about a month ago, and the pump itself was just replaced professionally a year ago. ANy help anyone could give would be much appreciated. Thanks

    The seal set is bad. If there are shut off valves, close them, pull the pump and replace them. Seal sets are usually about $30.
