    Inground Spa Water Level Dropping

    I just moved into a new home with an inground spa. It has been losing water when I fill it to full capacity. When I let it "leak" all the water it can, it usually stops around the upper part of a jet (see picture). This leads me to believe it is not the jets. I turned all the pumps off and it still loses water (~1"/day) to the point shown. This leads me to believe it's not the plumbing system, per say. I placed a bucket of water out there also (I live in FL) and the spa loses water quicker than the bucket of water evaporates. Can anyone please give me some advice?

    Welcome to TFP!

    Is this spa connected to a pool? If so, how does the level the spa drains down to relate to the water level in the pool?

    Thanks, the spa is independent and not connected to any pool.

    I had the same issue when they had plastered my pool and the leaks were around the jets. They chipped out the plaster around the jets and re-plastered. Haven't had a leak since.
