Leaks in your hot tub equipment are common but easy to fix
Small, hidden leaks inside your hot tub can lead to big, expensive problems
A major leak in your hot tub is pretty easy to spot. If you see a big puddle next to your hot tub and it's half empty when you lift the lid... you have a big leak that's losing a lot of water and you know you need to get it fixed.
Unfortunately, most leaks in portable hot tubs are so small the water loss is negligable and you may never see water leaking out or pooling up around the cabinet so you don't know you have a problem.

Leaks in the equipment compartment of your portable hot tub are inevitable. The same vibrations that can loosen electrical connections can also loosen or even crack plumbing connections causing leaks.
