  1. Got this fixed on Sunday found two small leaks same line same area cut out and put new hose about 6 inches wrapped entire are in kleenex and used the tub as normal. checked yesterday NO water on Kleenex put my hand under tub as far as I could between plastic and foam and so far foam is dry I have marked the water level and will keep an eye on it what's "normal" water loss from use per week? tub kept at 38 with cover on outside temp low of 8 high of 16 lots of steam coming off when you use it recirc pump runs 12 hours filtration pump runs
  2. many places you can buy bags and fill them if you don't need too much that's the way to go as your right delivery is a killer
  3. make sure the recirculation pump is not set to run for 24hours if it is it should be running. download the manual if you don't have one its easy to change the run time(s) I just cant recall offhand and it may be slightly different for yours the recirc pump will run if set and if the heater is on it also runs when the filtration jet pump is one if not perhaps the pump is faulty then
  4. May have found the leak the lines we felt wet yesterday were NOT wet today but im sure they were leaking so i felt around and when moved a pin hole opens up either dripping or misting the drip was steady enough that it would be a lot of water they are AIR lines when I turn the bubbler off the lines fill with water and I guess depending on vibration and such the pin hole would leak or not I could only see the leak with my very bright spotlight it showed the discoloration on the hose where the pinhole is located
  5. loose about 2-2.5 inch every 7 days foam is wet for about 1/2 the bottom surface area its wet approx 1 inch deep from bottom. we removed plastic it was dry as were patio stones underneath refilled and ran it we ran it NO dripping stood it back up and poked and felt around dug into wettest area and found some lines that were wet.
  6. that's a hard pass I'm too old to sore! ill keep plugging away at it today!
  7. well it was a long day drained tub stood it up removed plastic sheet on bottom plastic was DRY patio stones underneath DRY foam WET over approx 1/2 bottom area we put it onto 6x6 refilled hooked power back up and ran it for 6 hours water lever dropped but NO drips at all drained it tipped it back up and foam still wet.... so i took dowel and probed wettest areas NO luck bottom inch or so of foam is wet above that is dry 3 of us tried incase one of use overlooked something we did find some lines that felt wet (see pic of line(s) confirmed by all 3 of us put plastic
  8. we have had a 2001 sundance altamar since spring I used bromine since we got it chem levels are correct the bromine gives my wife a rash if she stays out of tub rash goes away so we know its the tub she is the only one with maybe 20 different people being in it over the summer total so what else can I use? what do you guys recommend? we go in hot tubs when we travel and its never a problem pools have never bothered her
  9. make sure you leave room for the pumps to breath they do need air circulation I used roxul to replace the spray foam that was dug out of my tub works great and cheap I did NOT bag mine as i was filling odd shaped voids. In your case I would bag it you will need to build a cabinet around it too again leave vents on pump side
  10. it has to go up first as it has a very thick black plastic sheet on the bottom ill need to remove that to have any hope of spotting drips.
  11. I do have some jackstands 6 I think I can always buy some fence posts to stand it up on now I just need to talk some guys into helping me lift this thing....
  12. Thanks you wouldn't happen to have a pic of what discoloration of the leak looks like exactly I'm off next week so weather permitting I plan on probing from the sides with some dowel to find the wettest area(s) and if possible tunnel in from the side what would you recommend I replace the spry foam on the bottom of the tub with? a small hole I can re-foam but if the areas large the foam kits are expensive here I have pretty good side access due to previous owners rodent problem pics from reconstruction long completed this was a test frame and
  13. the spa controller and that black plastic its attached to is in the way for side access and its a LONG reach! I redid all the wood when I got this spa as it was rotted so it supports itself fine on its side I'm not convinced its the seals between the tub and jets as it 100% leaks when I run the footwell jets When the tub is left idle the water level does NOT drop I'm in Ajax can you recommend anyone out this way? be a long drive for you! if I cant get this fixed myself
  14. thanks tried it 3 times this one http://www.fixaleak.com/ it did not even slow it down last time i ran pumps for 8 hours drained tub and left it empty for 6 days I used 3-4 more ounces then recommended 2nd time
  15. you mean the two under the lounge seat? see pic is the actual jets or the lines/fittings or the jet gasket in your experience? because I would need to order parts that can take me weeks to get. looks to me that the ONLY way I can get to it would be to tip it up again and tunnel in from the bottom.... My concern is that while tipped up I cant have water in it to see the actual leak(s) do you happen to know the part numbers of those jets or what they call them I would like to look them up in a parts diagram so I can see what's involved the pic is when i got the tub its cur
