Leaking jacuzzi jet

One of the jacuzzi jet connections appears to be leaking where the pipe meets the tub. It looks like there is nothing to tighten down on the outside, do I need to take the jet apart from the inside?

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.

SOURCE: Bathtub jacuzzi (motor turns runs but nothing coming from jets)

Each Jet will have an adjustment many times right on the jet nozzle. Carefully try to rotate them counter clockwise to open up the jet. This assumes you can here the motor running.

Make sure the jets themselves are fully opened. Some models you can turn individual jets on & off

Leaking at jet to tub connection


You can fix that with a small amount of "plumber's putty". You have to remove the jet from the tub first, then smear the plumber's putty around the junction where the two meet each other, then reassemble.

Take the unit off of the tub and see if there is a seal there,if there is a seal there try putting some silicone caulking around the seal or where the seal would be and then put the unit back together but don't over tighten the unit until the caulking is cured(24hrs) and then tighten the unit back up and this should seal it back up,unless the water is leaking past the actual switch itself,then you will need to replace this switch!Good Luck!!

if you have a water stain on the ceiling below your tub then you have a water leak. There is no easy solution for this. You must get to the underside of the tub in order to watch the jets when the tub is full of water to isolate the leak and then have it repaired by a plumber.

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.

Black come out the jets when first operating them


Didn't fully drain at the end of last year, that gunk was mold, rust and gunk that's been sitting in the piping since last year. Not really a problem just remember to take a closer look at the plumbing on your tub next year and get all of the possible places that water may hold drained completely.

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
