I have a very old (20+) years Garden Leisure spa. It's circular and only seats four people at the most. I recently replaced the GFCI plug receptacle successfully, but upon filing, there is a small leak from the pipe connection just before the valve. The water drips off the bottom of the valve, but is in fact coming from the pipe connection to it. See photos. I'm not sure what valve this is, as we no longer have the manual and information online is impossible to find, but it appears to be a gate valve. There's only one pump. Is there an easy way to patch this leak without replacing the valve? I
My outdoor spa/hot tub started leaking two winters ago so I took it out-of-service, and had the local dealer out to look at it this Spring. They charged me $120 for a visit, spotted an obvious leak, then told me they no longer service spas. 8^( The good news is that apart from the obvious leak, and a few top-side parts that should be replaced (easy fixes), the controls, heater and pumps all seemed to work properly.

Hello Everyone. Reaching out here, in the hope of some of your wisdom and help pls. Guess what i did ?

Hi, bought a home that came with a 1999 Coleman Spa. The previous owner did not drain it and a 1 1/2" PVC pipe froze up and broke along about a 6 foot run. No big deal. BUT along that run is five 1 1/2" T fittings that tie into flexible PVC tubing. And a female 3/4 inch is too small and a 1" female PVC is too big???!!! I figured spas had their own format, So I ordered 1 1/2 T's with a 1" opening for the lines. They are too big. The lines seems to match the outside diameter of a standard 3/4" PVC fitting. But no female openings are designed for external diameter fittings; only internal. So how
