Trying to save a Vanguard 2001 Hot Springs

Recommended Posts


tldr; Where does an air bleed line go to?  Two links, one is in the filter area.  Do I need the other?

   So I broke the 1/4" air bleed trying to restart my 2001 vanguard yesterday.  Went to the hardware store, grabbed the parts and some epoxy and rebuilt it.  While trying to maneuver the 1/4" air bleed line into place a t-tap broke off on the other end.  One end goes into the filter area and the other snakes around the side where I have to remove the covering to get to it (I already started and decided to stop until I have better advice, it looks like a mess to tear that foam away for something I don't even understand.  Where does it go?

You can plug most bleed lines without affecting the operation of the tub.  For the most part, the bleed lines prevent air-locks when filling empty pipes and pumps.
