Many time leaks around pumps are a simple o-ring that needs to be cleaned and/or tightened. If the jets are leaking from the back side then the jet will have to be removed and resealed.


Good Luck, Phil

What cleaner gets the bad smell and crud out of jacuzzi jets?


Here is a link to a site that sells jetted tub cleaners.

Any of these cleaners work very well at removing the smell from a jetted tub and the bacteria in the pipes as well.

Water system leak


The suction cover will come off the wall fitting either by removing the screw(s) or by unthreading counter clockwise.
Once the cover is removed you can then access the wall fitting which sounds to me as if it may be broken. If you remove the wall fitting you need to put a small bead of 100% RTF silicone around the lip of the wall fitting before you thread it back into the fitting behind the tub.
Once you tighten that wall fitting up you can clean up any excess silicone mess with denatured alcohol.

Can I simply silicone jets in a tub to seal them completely, so the jets don't leak? It's for a rental unit I own, bathroom on 2nd floor. Don't want to tear out the bath tub or ceiling on Main floor.


In order to properly seal the jet in place with silicone you must remove the wall fitting from the inside of the tub. The wall fitting is threaded into the jet body from the inside of the tub.
Once the wall fitting has been removed you can put a small bead of silicone around the underside of the flange and thread it back into the jet body. Clean up the excess silicone after it squishes out with DeNatured Alcohol.
If you plan on just putting a bead of silicone around the outside edge of the jet body behind the tub, do not waste the silicone or your time as it will not solve the leak in the tub.

Leaking jacuzzi jet


The workings of a bath jet...From the inside of the Bath there is a wall fitting that threads from the inside of the tub into the jet body located on the outside wall of the tub.
If the jet is leaking at this point behind the tub then you should take the wall fitting out of the tub and put a small bead of 100% RTV silicone around the flange of the wall fitting and reinstall it.
If however, the leak is from the PVC piping going into the jet then you will need to replace the jet.

Jacuzzi whirlpool hot tub, flashes Fl-1 has new filters,


Sounds like a bad heating element. This is located in a stainless steel tube under or around the main control box behind the cover around the tub. It is not hard to replace but should be done by a pro. The part is avaliable online.

I know I can take a bath without turning on the jets. However; does the bath water with soap flow back into the jets? I like bubble baths, If I leave the jets off can I use the bubble bath without having...


The soapy water will fill all of the jets, tubes and the pump assembly. Will it hurt the tub if the jets are not running? The soap film will build up in the jets, tubes and pump assembly and can possibly cause damage if the tub is run at a later date. Contact the tub manufacture and see if there is a safe bubble bath you can use.

Jacuzzi Leaking


you need to pull the jet body out and then put some 100% RTV silicone around the jet body and the inside of the wall fitting. Once the silicone is in place re-assemble the jet. that will solve the leak unless there is a broken piece on the jet body or the lip of the wall fitting.
