hi all, has anyone had this problem ? When I take out the jet nozzle air is leaking out of the hole at the bottom. This is causing the liner to deflate. Even when the jet nozzle is in place, bubbles of air are still leaking out ?

Sounds like you have a small puncture.  If you can't see exactly where it is you may need to drain the tub to just below that point and inspect it.  If you can find it, I would use a small piece of Flex Tape to cover it.

Hi Bruce no I didn't. I managed to drain out all of the water and pump it back up again, but it went down. I took all the hydro jets out and noticed some of the o-rings have split. That was my next job to replace them. That's where I left it for the winter ?

Hi Rolfy, I removed All of the jets and went to the bother of sourcing Viton O-rings. I fitted the o- rings and reinstalled the jets.😞 
leak is still there, the air is coming out of a small hole in the air jet receiver so to speak, which I thought would have been isolated after fitting the new orings. If you place your finger over the hole the air chases round to the next assy and hisses out.

I’ve emailed bestway and hoping to hear back, I’ll keep you posted.

Hi Dutch yes I have fixed it. I found one of the connecting pipes had split. The only way is to find which corner has failed ? That's the hard part. I then replaced the pipe with a hose pipe the same size. See photo's

Hi Donald if you blow up the hottub without the water you can hear which corner it is coming from. I have had two corners leak. But I still can't seal the hottub to keep the pressure in ? Good luck

Yes where I cut the liner. I am now trying inflatable canoe patches ? 

I cut open the liner and found the burst pipe just like you said, after a fair amount of cursive language I managed to sort that issue, then on to the cut in the liner, I tried various patches and glue to no avail, I then had a brain wave to stitch the liner together with fishing line then patch over the top, the stitching worked well but the patches still couldn't cope with the air pressure, next idea (and running out of them)along with the stitching I put a layer of everbuild fix all over the stitching, let it set and pressured it up and had two tiny holes so I put another thick layer of fix all over the top and let it set, hey presto it's holding tight. Hopefully permanent

Hi Donald that's brilliant news. I am still on the patch and glue stage. Which particular ever fix did you use, as there is quite a few ?  Cheers martin 👍

Sorry it's soudal fix all ( I'm renovating an old house and have various types of sealers and glue)

It doesn't look great but grey was the only colour I had at the time.

As you'd expect it's very sticky but if you get wonder wipes and wet your finger with them you can spread it a bit like putty.

It's very important to stitch it first
