    Hot tub leaks

    I have had a hot tub given to me and it's been sitting empty for two years in a garage is there any way of checking for leaks other than filling it with water?

    Hello and welcome to TFP! Water is probably your best bet... for the shell anyways. Remember though that the internal plumbing, heater, etc are also susceptible to leaks depending upon the age and care provided by the previous owners. In the end, you may not really know how it will hold-up until it's full and with water pressure (pump on) applied. Nice to have you with us.

    Welcome to TFP! +1 to not knowing about some plumbing leaks until it is filled and running.
