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...

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?

Can I simply silicone jets in a tub to seal them completely, so the jets don't leak? It's for a rental unit I own, bathroom on 2nd floor. Don't want to tear out the bath tub or ceiling on Main floor.


In order to properly seal the jet in place with silicone you must remove the wall fitting from the inside of the tub. The wall fitting is threaded into the jet body from the inside of the tub.
Once the wall fitting has been removed you can put a small bead of silicone around the underside of the flange and thread it back into the jet body. Clean up the excess silicone after it squishes out with DeNatured Alcohol.
If you plan on just putting a bead of silicone around the outside edge of the jet body behind the tub, do not waste the silicone or your time as it will not solve the leak in the tub.

Leaking jacuzzi jet


The workings of a bath jet...From the inside of the Bath there is a wall fitting that threads from the inside of the tub into the jet body located on the outside wall of the tub.
If the jet is leaking at this point behind the tub then you should take the wall fitting out of the tub and put a small bead of 100% RTV silicone around the flange of the wall fitting and reinstall it.
If however, the leak is from the PVC piping going into the jet then you will need to replace the jet.

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.

Dream Maker Spas leak


This means one of your top jets is leaking. Firstly try Fix A Leak this will stop any leak up to an 1/8". If this does not help there will be more difficult work in store.
Each jet sits in a jet body, these jet bodies are behind the tubs shell, you'll need to get in behind them to see which one is leaking. This can be difficult as they are often covered in insulation foam.

Jetted tub is on 2nd floor over kitchen. when jets are on water comes thru kitchen light fixture! Help!


First find access to tub,by code there needs to be access to pump motor,either built into wall or various tubs front skirt is removeable.Fill tub and run to visibly see leak,sounds like bearing assembly gaskets are leaking on pump,could possibly be a jet connection,but if it only does while running its the pump or motor assembly.Hope that helps,in the future make sure water is always above suction intakes or can lead to premature burnout of pump

I have a leaking jet in a pearl jet tub. it's an older model with just two jets installed in 1997 the jet leaks and i don't know how to jet the face plate off the jet, or have a diagram as to get the jet...


If there is a  threaded nut on the back of the jet, undo the nut as much as possible and push the jet out into the tub. Spread aquarium grade silicone around the jet and push back into the hole, put more silicone in front of the nut, you may have to spread it in the small area with your finger or if you can squirt it in from the tube of silicone. If there is no  threaded ring on the backside of the jet, go to the jet in the tub and looking down on the jet, turn it to the right. It should pop and pull out of the housing. There will be a retaining ring that may require a special tool to remove it, once the ring is out, clean it very well, spread silicon on the threads and the lip. Reinstall in the hole, reinstall jet wait 24 hours and fill and test for leaks. Take you time and you will not have to do it over again. Check where the leak is coming from, sometimes there is a hairline crack in the jet assembly, if this is the case, make sure the area is dry then use a 2 part epoxy for plastic (from lowes or home depot) and smear this all over and around the crack, let dry 24 hours, fill and test.

Aqua glass whirlpool tub leaks. looking for closure caps to close off the jets for good.


To my knowledge there are no closure caps for your tub; you can however purchase new jets with new seals if the tub is leaking through the jets.

Leaks from jets along outer wall


This is a hard fix, The jets are glued on to the back of the tub with an epoxy type material. the jets should spin on and off from the inside of the tub. You need to determine if it is the hole where the jet is that's leaking or if it is the jet assembly and tubing that is leaking. If it is the jet hole that is leaking, spin the jet off and use aquarium grade silicone (Lowes carries it)
spread this around the piece sticking thru the tub and spin the jet back on. This is a hit or miss fix. No easy fix if it is the tubes or jet assembly, full access necessary for this repair.

Cleaning a whirlpool tub


The jets turn yellow from exposure to the sun, not much you can do except replace the jets (costly). What is leaking? if you broke the seal on a jet it will leak and have to be resealed.
