Slow leak in hot tub
I've done a lot of answerin', but this is my first question. I have a Tiger River spa (not sure if brand matters). It was a hand-me-down from my dad. It's probably 10 years old. He takes immaculate care of his things so it's like brand new in appearance, but has a small leak somewhere. It's drained now for the summer, but will fill it again when the weather cools. My wife and I use it a lot in the winter months (probably 3-4 nights week). It seems to lose 1-2" of water over a course of about 2 weeks. I have an adapter for my kitchen faucet, so just top it off with hot water every so often.
I spoke with a guy a while back at a local spa dealer and he was only concerned with selling me a new one which I have no intention of doing. He said they would charge about 1000 bucks just to "see" if they could fix it. Needless to say, I pretty much told him to get lost.
I'm curious however about that stop leak stuff. Similar to what you'd use in a radiator. I haven't really looked at any products yet or read bottles. I'm guessing you just dump it in and drain the tub. Has anyone ever used that? Does it work? Any experience, thoughts, recommendations?
I'm all about fixing things right, but this time I'm kinda lookin' for an easy way out. Not too fond of the idea of jacking up the tub, digging out foam insulation, and making a repair.
