have been having some problems with the hot tub leaking for quite some time, but wasn’t certain that the water wasn’t just evaporating with the hot weather we’d been having…

finally it was clear that there was a problem so I called up the company I deal with and made an appointment…

a fellow came out on Monday morning and discovered water dripping from a portion of the pump… he thought it would be about forty dollars for the part which needed to be replaced… he worked for well over an hour and then advised that the entire pump needed to be replaced because the new piece wouldn’t fit in properly as they are now made slightly differently…

we contacted a supplier and my son-in-law went and picked up the new one so that the repair person could return the next morning to hook it up…

sadly, that didn’t happen… I made numerous calls to the store and was advised that they would pass along the message, but no one came… finally I called and asked for an actual appointment so that someone would turn up…

two fellows turned up the next morning and set about installing the new pump… they also fixed the loose jets (with silicone) so they don’t keep shooting the water out of the tub when the water level goes down a bit…

they advised the silicone needed twenty-four hours to cure and that the tub should work fine after that….

cleaned it out and partially filled it to just below the jets and waited for the point where I could finish filling it and turn it on to heat up…

after I filled it up and turned it back on, the pump made noise but the water did not move… I called again and a few hours later the guys came back and fixed an airlock in the pump… then it started to heat up…

I am going out for a hot tub soon;-)…
