$80.00/Hr Find & Fix Cabinet Leaks*

Even a small leak is more than just a nuisance. Water can saturate the foam insulation around your hot tub leading to mold and mildew.

Most hot tub frames are made from wood or metal and will rot out or rust out if a standing pool of water collects inside the cabinet. Once the frame has been compromised, most hot tubs are not worth fixing.

Water leaking from a hot tub can also damage decks and tile on patios. Unexplained water loss, a persistent wet line along the base of the tub, signs of green algae growing around the base of the tub, any persistent damp spot, loose tiles or deck rot are all indications of a possible hot tub leak.

Some hot tub leaks involve complex plumbing

Most leaks are found in the accessible equipment area where all the removeable parts are found. Pumps can leak at the shaft seal or plumging connections. Heaters can leak at the electrodes, pressure switch or plumging connections. Sensors can leak where they tap into the plumbing.

Finding and fixing a leak in the equipment area is usually a routine procedure and can be as simple as tightening a ftting or replacing an o-ring or gasket.

Finding a leak back in the cabient usually starts with digging out the spray-foam insulation used in most modern hot tubs. The foam sprays in as a liquid then quickly expands to cover every surface and fill every void around every inch of plumbing.

Fixing the leak will require scraping all the foam insulation off all the parts that need to be replaced and from the area where the work must be performed.

A leak back in the cabinet can be a bad glue joint, loose jet, cracked pipe or even rodent damage. Everything back in the cabinet is permanently glued together so any repair usually involves cutting out and re-plumbing some complex array of pipe and fittings.

*Does not include parts, supplies or materials. Most cabinet leaks are not same-day-fixes. See written estimates for additional disclaimers reagarding various types of leaks and repairs.
