Fix a Leak – Kingston Pools and Hot Tubs – Knapp’s Pools and Hot Tubs

 Fix a LeakFix-A-Leak is a concentrated liquid designed to seal leaks in hot tubs and pools.  It is designed to seal holes up to 1/8″ in diameter and form a permanent seal for a number of years.

Instruction for use:  Remove your spa filter, add solution to the water at where there is suction and allow the repair to mend. Use 8 oz per 1,000 gallons for leaks in hot tubs. Use 32 oz for pools up to 22,000 gallons. A second treatment can be done for larger leaks.

Directions for Using Fix A Leak Solution

 

Place bottle in some warm water with lid on to ensure solution is liquid then Shake Well Before Using Fix A Leak works best with warm water (minimum 21°C).

  1. If hot tub has been leaking for some time and insulation is wet, empty the hot tub for approximately 1 week for foam to dry out. Refill the hot tub once the foam is dry.
  2. Remove all spa filters.  For pools, if you have a sand filter set filter valve to recirculate
  3. With your pump running on high speed, slowly add FIX A LEAK in front of the skimmer or any other suction area
  4. Turn your pump on as often as you can.  You may need to stir up Fix a Leak from the footwell of your hot tub.  If you have more than 1 pump, turn all pumps on periodically
  5. Continue to re-circulate water until it appears the leak has stopped
  6. After the leak has stopped let sit for approximately 24 hrs, drain  and clean the hot tub.  Make sure you wipe down the hot tub as it drains – do not allow the hot tub to dry before cleaning!  Leave the hot tub for approximately a week before refilling (as long as their is no risk of freezing)
  7. Re-install filter cartridges.  Remove cartridges after 24hrs  and rinse a second time.   Do not allow cartridges to dry before rinsing!
    NOTE: For pool sand filters: Set filter valve to filter and resume normal operation. Backwash periodically.
  8. A second addition may be necessary if leak hasn’t completely stopped.
