Exclamation DIY hot tub repair

Hi PJMax.

I figure after a month of navigating DIY hot tub repair I'd finally post the need for help. I have a hot tub that came with our house. It worked kinda... for a few months after we moved in. I would like to restore it myself. I have detailed pictures of all components. I'm not sure where to start to replace the components or which ones that need to be replaced or just replace all and have a new tub. Help?

Welcome to the forums.

You are here in your very own thread.

Thank you.

Make and model is unknown. Model and serial number are completely worn off. Honestly it reminds me of a hot tub my parents had in the mid to late 90's. If hat helps. I added pictures to this obit bucket album. Hot Tub by Vise Versa | Photobucket

Ok. End goal is to have this hot tub back up and running. There are no leaks and it seams to be a decent hot tub when it worked for the first few months we moved in.
Problems are:
1. Jets. Most are missing. I am assuming I can just replace from online or in store.
2. Control panel. Pretty much doesn't work. Jets work only a bit.
3. Heater. It kinda worked when we got it. Struggled to keep above 100 degrees.
4. Jets work a bit. Not much movement.

This thread reminds me how much I hate Photobucket and their incessant advertising.

So, do you have any specific questions we can help with?

I guess where to start?

Internals look to be mid 90's.
Should I start with replacing the control pack and pump?
