A jacuzzi-brand hot tub (or "bath tub") inside a home propels water into the tub from a spigot commonly called a jet. If the jet is defective, the water will not come out under pressure and the experience that's a hot tub will be ruined. You can remove a defective jet and replace it with a new one yourself. Procure the jet from a pool and spa supply store.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Phillips screwdriver/star screwdriver
  • Pliers/wrench

  1. 1

    Trip the circuit breaker on the fuse box to disconnect the electric line from the jacuzzi-brand tub. Turn the jacuzzi's power switch to the "Off" position, if it's not already on this setting.

  2. 2

    Open the access panel on the bottom side of the jacuzzi. If screws are holding the access panel in place, remove them using a Phillips screwdriver first.

  3. 3

    Rotate any valves inside the compartment fully clockwise. Open the drain to empty the water out of the tub.

  4. 4

    Wipe the grill covering the defective jet with a dry cloth once all of the water is gone. Remove the screws holding the grill to the inside of the jacuzzi with a Phillips screwdriver. If star screws are used instead of Phillips screws, use a star screwdriver to remove the screws instead.

  5. 5

    Pull the grill off and place it aside. Remove the rubber gasket from the compartment. The gasket surrounds the jet and provides a seal against water leakage.

  6. 6

    Place the jaws of a pliers or wrench, depending on your preference, around the jet that's inside the compartment. Rotate the pliers or wrench counterclockwise until the jet comes loose.

  7. 7

    Unscrew the jet from the pipe fitting it's on. Remove the jet and dispose of it. You can now attach a replacement jet to the pipe, return the inside and outside of the jacuzzi to normal, refill the water, and restore the power.
