Many time leaks around pumps are a simple o-ring that needs to be cleaned and/or tightened. If the jets are leaking from the back side then the jet will have to be removed and resealed.


Good Luck, Phil

Water system leak


The suction cover will come off the wall fitting either by removing the screw(s) or by unthreading counter clockwise.
Once the cover is removed you can then access the wall fitting which sounds to me as if it may be broken. If you remove the wall fitting you need to put a small bead of 100% RTF silicone around the lip of the wall fitting before you thread it back into the fitting behind the tub.
Once you tighten that wall fitting up you can clean up any excess silicone mess with denatured alcohol.

Can I simply silicone jets in a tub to seal them completely, so the jets don't leak? It's for a rental unit I own, bathroom on 2nd floor. Don't want to tear out the bath tub or ceiling on Main floor.


In order to properly seal the jet in place with silicone you must remove the wall fitting from the inside of the tub. The wall fitting is threaded into the jet body from the inside of the tub.
Once the wall fitting has been removed you can put a small bead of silicone around the underside of the flange and thread it back into the jet body. Clean up the excess silicone after it squishes out with DeNatured Alcohol.
If you plan on just putting a bead of silicone around the outside edge of the jet body behind the tub, do not waste the silicone or your time as it will not solve the leak in the tub.

Leaking jacuzzi jet


The workings of a bath jet...From the inside of the Bath there is a wall fitting that threads from the inside of the tub into the jet body located on the outside wall of the tub.
If the jet is leaking at this point behind the tub then you should take the wall fitting out of the tub and put a small bead of 100% RTV silicone around the flange of the wall fitting and reinstall it.
If however, the leak is from the PVC piping going into the jet then you will need to replace the jet.

Our jacuzzi tub is 20 hrs old and possibly is leaking. About 6 mths ago we remodeled bathroom &replaced all tile around tub & shower. We do not want to tear out tile. What would be best way to pin...


if you have a water stain on the ceiling below your tub then you have a water leak. There is no easy solution for this. You must get to the underside of the tub in order to watch the jets when the tub is full of water to isolate the leak and then have it repaired by a plumber.

Leaking bath drain


Remove the hair strainer or pop up drain assembly if so equiped and using a basin wrench or two crossed screwdrivers unscrew the drain basket and remove from the tub. Clean the tub and the back side of the basket and apply a generous bead of plumbers putty to the backside of the basket and reinstall. Tighten it down squeezing out excess putty, wipe off excess putty and you are done.

Some people use silicone sealer in lieu of plumbers putty and it will work fine but is messier in my opinion and makes dis-assembly harder.

Water is leaking from bath tub drain


the most common reason for a drain to leak is that the plumbers putty around the drain where it meets the sink or tub has dried out and has a crack or void in it. Unscrew the drain from inside of the tub and check the plumbers putty. There is an inexpensive drain wrench sold at hardware stores, lowes and home depot that makes this an easy fix.

Waste trap under bath leaks


put the putty under the flange where it makes contact with the inside of the bath, push the flange to the bath & tighten nut underneath. Trim off excess. Have an overflow pipe [not intergral] make sure the top & bottom of the collar have rubber seals
If the whole lot is plastic there may well be a leak down & along the thread of the waste.[it comes from the o/flow pipe collar] Silicone the thread and tighten nut. make sure it's dry first - silicone & water do not make a happy couple
