You'll find that pipe at a pool supply house, or possibly at the local pool store.

Thanks. I found the pipe and fixed THAT leak. Filled it up today and found 2 more I plugged them with screws for now. Termites are eating holes.
Spent several hours today digging out foam. still have more leaks.

I'll post some pictures later. I'm pissed and tired.

This trail of termite poop went right to my second hole.
I dyed the water to see if it helps to find the leaks. It Does NOT help.

Sorry to hear you are chasing the problem around like that never saw termites eating PVC. Maybe the leak was there so they went for the water.

Digging out that foam looks like a pain. I’m glad mine is full of the dense pack in case I ever have to get in there. I know they sell blocks or bails of that dense pack stuff. I don’t see any reason you couldn’t use that to pack back in where you repaired in case you need to get back in there.

I have never seen termite poop that is bigger than termites, perhaps there is a rodent in the insulation.

Like a boat they say your two happiest days are when you buy it and the day you sell it, might hold true for hot tubs also.

We are still in love with ours, after a year the honeymoon is still going. We have some friends that just pulled their tub out and sold it. in their case all they could think about was the days they didn’t use it is dollar or so a day it was costing them.

Now the question is what do you do with the extra 240v feed. Big air compressor or a welder in that corner sounds good to me.
