Most leaking plumbing issues from a spa are to in depth for a home owner to pay for the repair. Use MARLIG FIX A LEAK and this will fix almost any small-medium leak.

SOURCE: hot tub no heater or pump heater light flashing

Thank you for posting your question here on

Start with the pump. If it is bound up and not starting nothing else will work. Close off your valves and disconnect the pump unions. Once free, reach in with the pump unplugged and try to turn the impeller by hand. Will it turn? If not, you'll need to free it or get the pump repaired. Once the pump is working and water circulating your heater should start working.

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

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.

Hot tub emptied while a way found leak have fixed but heater will not work is this a fuse or what system is a vs500z

The heater works when there is flow through the pump. If the pump is working and the thermal overload switch was reset and still no heater, check all fuses. There may be three or four in the control unit.

Hot tub froze up, tried resetting breaker , no response. want to take pond heater to thaw and try again. obviously not getting power, any suggestion on things i can do myself?

Open the access panel under the unit where the pump is located. Place a small electric heater in the cavity up off the floor and not pointed toward anything close so it won't melt. put it on a low setting and close up the access panel.
Leave power to the hot tub disconnected.
Check after an hour but unplug heater befor you open access panel again in case water may be leaking somewhere. More than likely you will probably find that you have some leaks when it thaws out.

Once it thaws out you'll probably have to replace the heater or the pump. one or the other failed unless it was due to a power failure.

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....

  • 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.

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:

No water pressure in bath tub after turning off hot water heater

It could be back flowing into the hot water heater tank which is not full because of the leak. Even though the valve is closed on the cold water entry side, there is probably no valve on the exit side. That is how it is returning to the tank.
