Hi,
If you do not know where the leak and/or it is a slow leak try Fix-A-Leak it works well for cracks up to 1/8".
If there is a large puddle or your losing a substantial amount of water, you most likely have a large crack in the a pvc fitting somewhere. Where? That is the hard part, you may have to remove panelling to find out but typically water manifolds & jet bodies crack first.
Hope that helps.

I have just installed my intex portable hot tub but there seems to be a leak coming from the bottom.


That's unfortunate. Well, empty the hot tub, and then check the place thoroughly. Is it leaking from inside the outlet? Than check the plug in the outlet tube, if it fits correctly.

I have water leaking out of left hand corner of water fall and steps going into hot tub i think it is leaking only when pump is on


Sounds like maybe the clamps have given way on your water fall return line and maybe your ozonator return. You will unfortunately have to take down the wall to get access. Check all of your unions and make sure they are tight, and then look for pools of water to show where the leaks are. If your completely insulated with spray foam look for saturation that will lead you to your leak. Once you fix the leak make sure to spray foam over your repair. How To Fix Leaking Hot Tub

There is a leak and we can not find it. Any solutions


This may help?
Fill spa to highest level possible.
Heat to 100 degrees or higher.
Then, with your bare hand feel throughout the bottom rim and anywhere else you are able to: see if you can feel "Warm/Hot" water. Any "Cold" water is not the area of the leak, that water has "Travelled" there. The warmer the water, the closer you are to the origin.

Just purchased a used Dream Maker X400 hot tub. It holds the water during the filtration cycles but if we attempt to use the hot tub by turning on the jets there is a major leak. Is this from one of the...


Have you opened the equipment access door and looked in it while it is running. I would look at the pumps to see if one of the seals are leaking. They will leak more on high speed and if you have a cir pump that runs the filter and an additional pump for high speed jet action it would make sense why it is leaking more while you are using it.

Hot tub is leaking


How severe is the leak?
Is the water level dropping when the tub is not in use? If so you will need inspect the back (inside the tub) portion of each jet. There is a gasket and nut on the backside of each jet body, these may come loose for crack.
If your leak is only when you have the pump running, your leak could be on the suction or discharge side of the pump. Only leaking when there is water pressure.
A temporary fix is Fix-A-Leak - a water treatment that will temporarily repair any crack up to 1/8". Its no guarantee but might help.

Leaking from underneath the machine


If the washer leaks all the time, check these: Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate. Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician. Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it.

Its leaking water while the washer is washing


Hi
If your washer leaks every time you run it, then check these:

  • Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.
  • Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace.

  • Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it.

  • Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make.

Please rate the solution if you find it useful and helpful.
