When we performed the initial leak detection, we used compressed air in the lines to identify where the leaks occurred. We plugged the returns and injected air that did more than make the sounds of leaks, it showed the leaks in multiple areas. When we isolated where the damage was, we dug down to the pipes and could clearly see the root damage.
Spas have multiple lines that cross and connect to put air and water into the shell together, making the pleasure of owning and relaxing in a spa. However, when making repairs, this means both lines had to be replaced. Starting at the Venturi, we cut and removed pipes and began to re-install new PVC. Connecting them required a loop and multiple points coming back together.
The important part of making these repairs is that with each reconnection, we tested that section of line to ensure it was holding pressure without leaks before attaching the next section. this happens from the spa all the way back to the equipment to ensure that both air and water were being distributed properly without leaks. Once verified, we can refill the holes and return the spa back to service.
