The only product I know of which will do what you ask is an item called Plast-Aid Acrylic and PVC repair kit. Google it and you will find the website. It is about $20. and it works like a charm. good luck

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.

Black spider like material that may come from jaccuzi


Is it greasy, oily spider web type junk? Coming through the pipes, new construction or new tub? Could be from the pump, not that it is leaking oil but it has oil in it from the manufacture of it. I would call the jacuzzi people and tell them what you have and that your kids play in the tub and drink the stuff, ought to get them to move on that one. Ask them if they know what it is and what to do about it? Hope this helps.

Bath tub leaks


Well if its not from drain then it could be from one of the supply valve (hot/cold) it is also possible that its leaking from the overflow drain. this gets overlooked sometimes because of its location. One thinks that water has to be filled that high but one might be surprised how much water gets there when taking a shower or splashing in the tub. There should be an access panel to check the valves and overflow gasket. If not remove the handles and echuns to see if you can see anything.

I have a Jacuzzi Cirrus, bought in 1996. It leaks slowly (I have to fill every 2-3 days. It drops about 8 inches and gets close to below skimmer. Do you know what could be leaking?


Each of the jets have rubber gaskets. The continual heat and cemicals starts to deterioate these and the tub leaks around the jets. This is not always noticeable do to the fact that the water is hot and tends to evaporate. But even a small leak multiplied by all the jets adds up. 1996 is a long time and the replacement of these gaskets are overdue. I hope this has helped it would be the first thing I would look at given the age. Hope this has helped good luck and have a great day. Jeff

My jacuzzi bathtub plastics pipes underneath are leaking due to being chewed by rats. So if i fill up the tub to the jacuzzi line holes, water leakes through the chewed pipes on to the wood floor...


no there is no solutions for plugging off the jets so the water doesn't go in them. you will have to pull the tub and repair the lines. no access panel just means you have to dig in!

Jacuzzi Espree with side access pannels leaks.


you can use a scissor cutter or a utility knife and make a nice square cut in the hose. After replacing the nut, hopefully you can find one, you can get a pvc coupling, the hose is the same size as pvc pipe, and use pvc glue to reattach the 2 ends back together. Use Oatey Rain-N-Shine glue....it is in a light blue can and the actual color of the glue is blue.
