Question about Dream Maker Spas Dream Maker Ez Spa Hot Tub

1 Answer

There is a leak on my 4 person Dream Maker hot tub at the pumps connection to the other plumbing. I'm wondering if it needs a new gasket or what? The leak is taking out a couple inches every couple days. It's a drip leak and seems to be coming out of the pump where you screw the cover on the pump that is connected to the plumbing for the rest of the hot tub. Anyone that can help would be great. I'm hoping that I only have to purchase the gasket for the pump/hot stick.

  • I used to teach plumbing.
  • I honestly have not worked on This unit.
  • I would like to SUGGEST using some Plumbers Tape--not puddy to start with. This might fix it w/o a new gasket.
  • If That Does not fix it, go to your Local Plumers supply store (I would NOT go to home depot or lowes; I would go to the old fashioned shop) and get the gasket for the pump, as you are pondering about.

Hi,

From your description it sounds as though the wet end faceplate gasket needs replacing. Where are you from? If you're from the UK I may be able to help you. Feel free to contact me: http://hotub.synthasite.com

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.

1. Check equipment like pump, heater, blower, light fixture, for leaks.
2. Remove side panels closest to the are the leak is showing and inspect jets, plumbing in that area for leaks. If insulation is foam, remove any water saturated foam and follow it to the source of leak.


3. If the leak is in plumbing and is very slow, sometimes it can be resolved with "stop leak" products.

Yes, the jets will run anytime the heater is operational. This is neccessary to keep the plumbing from melting, and also to evenly distribute the heated water. Most hot tubs only take 4-5 hours to heat up, but the easy spa takes very long because they use a very small heating element. Usually only 1.5KW.

My dream maker hot tub keeps needing to be reset at the plug i have to keep resetting it all the time is there another fuse or something i can do


Your heating element is going to ground and 'leaking' current. The GFCI is picking it up and you will need a new element.
