Jacuzzi Leak Repair
updated: Feb 24, 2014, 4:41 PM

Our above ground Jacuzzi-style tub has a leak. it appears to be at the very bottom of the tub, where the water goes into the intake/filter area. We have tried using some repair glue that we poured into the spa water, ran for a few hours, and then emptied, and refilled with fresh water. This worked for a little while. Any suggestions for repair people in Santa Barbara area?

Someone named "Bahama Bob" here in Santa Barbara fixed my leak. He did a great job in a hard to get spot and it's lasted! He works on hot tubs and spas. He's on the web.

I second American leak, I've used them enough times (for a variety of different leaks - bad water karma) that Fritz and I are on a first name basis. 965.1000

I think American Leak Detection only does leak detection, and no fixing. The charge is $275 and can be as short as 30 mins.

It is amazing what people read but do not understand. He knows where the leak is he does not need ALD to find it. I have used Bahamas Bob. He is the best!

By the way, I found my hot water under slab leak with my bare foot. ALD was off by at least four feet.

It took American Leak Detection about 2 minutes to find an outside irrigation leak I had using a stethoscope device able to pick up the sound of running water at the leak sight. That came to a little over $200 a minute. Not bad for a fairly simple gig!

Gordon & Grant sent out an employee who could not speak English & had to have him call in to the office who then translated what he was saying back to me. Inadequate service. Village Pool Supply sent guys who were slow and argued about what they were there to do, and the bill, which had no estimate, was extremely high. Double what I expected. I'll give Bahama Bob's a try NEXT time.

I fixed a leak in my spa by myself with a product called Sugru (Google it) but marine epoxy would work equally well and can be used on wet areas.

IZZY2SHOES: I don't get your point. Doesn't every business "CHOOSE" to do the work or not? Maybe they don't want to be responsible for repairing very old spas or spas in really bad shape for which they can't guarantee their work? Gordon and Grant has been great for us--we bought a couple of spas from them over the years and they do any work that is needed. And PS: I'm pretty sure David Perez works for Gordon and Grant.
