    Default Throttling Whirpool Pump

    I bought a whirlpool bath with a 1hp motor and was wondering if there was a way to throttle/slow down the water flow from the pump?

    Thanks,
    BlackNoir

    Check with the tub manufacturer for possible fancier controls...some can be adjusted. Did you check their website to see if that was offered as an option?

    I called them actually and the 'Adjustable' pump is an extra option you can opt for when buying the tub. I bought mine off of craigslist so no options for me. They said to upgrade mine at this point would be $500.. I don't need it THAT bad..

    The guy I bought it from thought maybe putting a valve in-line with the exhaust from the pump would work but I wasn't sure if that would be hard on the motor or not.
