A Jacuzzi can be a great addition to either the inside or the outside of your home. The soothing jets and hot water of the Jacuzzi can relieve tension and stress and help you relax after a tough day's work. However, it will be a little more difficult to relax and enjoy your Jacuzzi if you find that there is a leak. Any standing water or a significant reduction in water inside the Jacuzzi can each point to a leak. The method you use to stop the leak will depend on where it is.
Things You'll Need
Disconnect the Jacuzzi from any power. It's safer to check for leaks if the power is off.
Replace your pump or pump seal if you find standing water around this part of your Jacuzzi.
Tighten up any loose union fittings using a wrench. These can be shaken loose and cause a leak.
Check the heater of your Jacuzzi, as well as the surrounding fittings and connections. If any are leaking water, they need to be replaced.
Look carefully at the valves of your Jacuzzi. If you find a leak in a knife-style valve, it can be bolted together. However, other valves will need to be replaced.
