    It is leaking around the jet body.

    The jet is cracked in the threads. It has to be replaced. Everything is glued. How do you replace piping?

    Leaking around the jet body or from where the PVC pipe goes into the jet body?

You need to remove jets check for cracking if so buy new jet if not cleanup and use a 100% clear silicone to re-install

I need to know how to clean the jets in our eljer spa tub


Cleaning your Tub
There are several options for cleaning the piping on a jetted bathtub.
The reason you have a residue on the bathtub surface when you are done bathing is because there is bacteria built up in the plumbing of the jetted tub. In order to remove that and reduce the amount of "yucky stuff" coming into the tub when using it, we recommend a regular usage of a jet cleaning product about once every couple of months
Here is a link to the cleaning products I can find right now. There may be other out there that I am not aware of but I do know these products work well in all jetted bathtubs.

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

Eljer jetted tub on and off switch will not work


It may seem like a dumb answer but check the ground fault outlet or breaker. Then make sure there is enough water in the tub. It should be a few inches over the jets.

Back jet near front panels leaks, what part do i


You may not need to replace any parts. If it is leaking around the seal (which I have had happen on occassion), a high quality silicone adhesive should be applied. However, it is best to unscrew the jet at the connection so as to get good coverage. Just applying the adhesive around the connection without getting it between the unfinished portion of your tub, is just asking for future problems.

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.
