Hot tub jets may need to be removed for occasional cleaning, troubleshooting clogged jets or for replacing broken jets. Most jets just twist or screw off, but every type of hot tub is slightly different, so it's important to read the manufacturer's manual regarding removal of jets for your specific hot tub brand and model. Before working in the hot tub, be sure to unplug the hot tub and drain the water.
Things You'll Need
- Pipe wrench
- Silicon-based lubricant
Turn the jets with your hands to try to unscrew them. For slippery jets, use a rag or washcloth to help grip the jet. If they loosen, continue unscrewing until the jet is removed.
Place a pipe wrench around the hot tub jet. Gently turn the jet to begin to loosen it. If it loosens, continue turning until the jet is unscrewed.
Squeeze a small amount of silicon-based lubricant onto your fingers. Using your fingers, rub as much lubricant into the gap between the jet and spa wall as possible. Allow the lubricant to work its way into the jet for 10 to 15 minutes. Repeat steps until the jet is removed.
