This has to do with where the water is coming from.
1. wall fittitng. just remove it, reseal and replace
2. pump leaking, usually means shaft seal.
3. plumbing fitting. usually just replace the fitting.
4. fiberglass cracked. get a boat repair man and have him fix it. these guys are usually pretty good.

Hi everyone my coleman lazy spa leaks from pump is there a way to fix this?TIA


looks like this has a magnetic drive pump and are not common to leak. so disassemble and locate loose or cracked part and try silicone or epoxy to do the repair. I recommend Majic lube for rubber o-rings and gaskets Lay Spa Teardown

I have a leak coming from the "cold" line right at the valve joint. There is signifigant calcuim build up on the pipe from the valve to the connection of the water heater, (maybe 8 inch of pipe)...


Very simple - call a Plumber. He will fix your plumbing problem, and any foreseen potential problems related to your water leak. He may also suggest replacing your 6 year old water heater. Of course ..... for a professional cost.
However, depending on your time, skills, proper tools, patience and luck, it's easy enough to perform yourself:
1. Switch off the water heater Breakers (220v) in your service panel.
2. Turn off the water supply to the water heater.
3. Attach a water hose to the drain faucet. ( a good time to flush sediment -calcium deposits)
4. Open a hot water faucet to vent (above the level of the water heater drain - kitchen sink)
5. Remove the suspected leak components. (a union connection is a good place to start)
6. Install New pipes -3 wrap all male threaded ends with teflon Tap. Tighten securely - using 2 wrenches.
NOTE: Before refilling - you can turn on the water heater supply valve for a few minutes, to flush out any lingering calcium debris.
7. Shut off drain valve - remove hose. Shut off venting hot water faucet.
8. Turn on water supply valve to fill water heater.
9. Open a hot water faucet to relieve air pressure while filling - preferably the bath tub faucet, it doesn't have a screen that might clog.
10. When water flows without air - shut off tub faucet.
11. Look for leaks.
12. Switch the water heater Breakers on.
Note: 50 gallons should take an hour or more to heat up. Turn on a hot water valve momentarily within this heat up time to relieve thermal expansion. ( the PT valve on your water heater will perform this task if pressures/temperature exceed new water heater tolerances - it's just a precaution to introduce these fluctuating pressures on your fragile 6 year old unit)

These are just basic instructions - assuming you fill in the common sense and work safe steps.
Good Luck - The Skill will only come after trying.

I have a 6 yr old Pentair Minimax NT heater that just started leaking water. Is it worth it to repair it, or should I just buy a new one?


Buy a new one. I spent $650 beginning of season to replace the manifold that was leaking and now it is broken. Again. Had since new and every year it breaks, sometimes twice. 6 years of dealing with this piece of junk.

No hot water, little puddle below unit, age is about 18 years Can this be repaired ?


Please for your safety and the safety of your home replace the water heater. It has definately paid for itself more than once. As a repair plumber I really like to hear about a water heater that old still being in service. Just reminds me that things are not made like they used to be. Average life for a water heater tank now is 10 to 12 years. The oldest one that I have personally taken out of a home was 32 years old.

Intellitouch 9.3. Three years old, been fine till


I've been having the same problem - I don't have the complete solution but can tell you what I've been through so far. After 4 service calls and a visit from the local Pentair rep, they have replaced both circuit boards on the personality board. When they reconnected the spa-side remote, the electronics circuit tripped again. They are telling me I need to replace the spa-side remote, but I haven't since the repairs to date have cost me $1700 and they want another $700 to replace the spa-side remote. $2400 for a system that's 5 years old is ridiculous so for now I'm on hold, especially considering it may have been the spa-side remote all along. Don't know if your system includes the spa-side remote - if it does, disconnect it and see if the problem resolves itself, the remote may be the culprit.

Hi mike_poulton,

I'm Harvey the master Plumber.

Your question is: You have one of the above models and it has been a fantastic dishwasher but now it seems not to take in water even on rinse and the timer does not decrease.
Any ideas please the model is 6 years old and if too expensive to repaire it will sadly have to go.

This may sound stupid but first make sure no one turned the water off to the d/w. If OK then you likely have a clogged or failed solanoid valve. The d/w must be removed for replacement. I don't recomend this for the average homeowner. You might consider utilizing our Repair Directory to find a repairman.

Feel free contact me again!
