Water leaks in hot tub or spa plumbing can be troublesome and in most cases very difficult to locate due to the foam sprayed insulation. The time and effort for a manual repair can at times become quite costly. With FIX A LEAK the repair costs can be minimal and often be done by the hot tub or spa owner.
How to determine whether you need an 8oz or a 32oz bottle:
- Our 8oz. bottle can be used for minor drip leaks. Use 1 whole bottle regardless of the amount of water in the tub, ranging from 250 to 1000 gallons. Water Temperature should be between 70F and up.
- A 32oz. bottle may be required: depending on the severity of the leak usually between 1 inch to 1 and a half inches, per 24 hour period. This would allow you to begin by using 1/3 of the bottle and if more product is required you can add the additional amount. Water temperatures should br between 70F and up.
Instructions for use:
This type of application will be for hot tub/spa leaks that are minor in nature. When you know your hot tub/spa is leaking but cannot detect a noticeable water drop inside the spa a wet spa pad or actual water slowly dripping onto the pad or floor may be the cause. Since it will be difficult to determine if you have sealed this type of leak follow the steps below.
- Remove all cartridge filters.
- Pour the entire contents of the bottle into the filter intake or directly into the spa.
- On day 1 run the spa for 4-6 hours, alternating between the low and high-speed jets.
- Since the jets usually run on a 15-minute cycle, you must be present to restart once cycle kicks off.
- After the 4-6 hours you can shut off your spa or just allow the recirculating pump to periodically run its cycle.**
- On day two, if the leak has slowed but not stopped, broom the bottom of your hot tub/spa before restarting the process as you did on day one of alternating between high and low speed jets for 4-6 hours.
- After day two leave the spa off for 48 hours. During this time frame check to see if the water level is stable and if the hot tub/spa pad remains dry.
We recommend to drain your spa after treatment as long as night temperatures remain over 40F. If temperatures dip below 40F for any length of time you may reinstall the filter(s) and remove the remainder of Fix A Leak out of the Spa or Hot Tub, making sure to take them out now and then to rinse under hot water to remove any Fix A Leak residue.
