Question about Jacuzzi Home
Posted by Anonymous on
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.

Sorry, the tub will have to pulled out to find out what is leaking so it can be fixed. There is just no other way UNLESS you can open up the wall on the blind side of the tube. (but its probably and exterior wall...if the house is vinyl sided, it can be done. If brick, you'll have to pull the tub). If you just wanted to convert to a tub only, maybe Bathfitters has an insert solution...

one of the quick ways to fix leaks at jets is by using Millaput two putty resins mixed and worked round the outside of the defective jet hope this helps

This may be a silly question but, have you tried to, as much of a pain in the **** as it is, tried to look through your, hopefully accsessable acsess panel to see if you can see the leak. I understand that it could be getting out around jets but, there are so darn many places it could be leaking. If you have inspected the jets and they seem to be sound and flush, I'd look elsewhere, for instance, how often, if ever, does the water get to the overfow? They can leak around their seal and sometimes will not be tightly seated. A question I have for you is, do you have drywall or something on the ceiling in your basement and, if so will you be taking it down because of leak. If you have planked floors, you may be able to get an idea, not guaranteed, of exactly where it is leaking which, could let you know which side of the tub the leak is on, hopefully, the one you can see. If it's not on the side you can see, and is a planked floor, you may be able to cut you a little access hole in the ceiling of basement, floor under tub. to see. This may or may not work depending on how the tub was framed and installed but, you would obviosly know where the drain is and could use taht for reference. Anyway, the rings of the jet will come out but, I would give them a good inspection and, if they look sound, it could be something else. How bad of a leak is it and, how long does it take for the leak to show up in the basement?
