    Index pure spa rubber piece

    Hey everyone, I have an intex pure spa that's leaking. I've narrowed it down to this U shaped gasket. Is there any way to purchase a new one or should I just use silicon sealant to stop the leak? I've contacted intex who told me I'd have to buy a whole new control base. Thanks in advance for your help.

    Are you sure it's that seal that's leaking? Seems odd for a rubber seal to leak without being touched. I'd carefully check the plastic on both sides of the seal for tiny cracks. If not cracked you could probably carefully use RTV gasket maker to seal it up.

    The picture doesn't give much context for where that seal is. Is it on the heater? The pump? You may not be able to get a new seal but you could probably buy a sub-assembly at least. Intex lists many different heater and pump assemblies on their website.

    I couldn't find any cracks anywhere. I took the picture before I disassembled it. I think this is the heater. I figured that if this doesn't work I'll replace this part with whatever comparable in their site. Either way it's cheaper than buying a whole new control base.

    Hey got, were you able to fix this? I have the same problem. Leaking out of the side, near the screws, with no noticeable cracks. Appreciate the help.

    I wasn't. I used sealant but it still leaked. Then my motor went up so I just need to replace the whole unit
