    Anyone do Spa Repair or know of someone that doesn't rape you when they come out to look at it?

    I have a leak, I've replaced EVERYTHING I can get my hands on and it still fucking leaks.. Called a few shops and its 75$ just to come see this awesome leak.

    I hate plumbing....:confused:

    I would try Chester at Alpha Spa Repair. 602-334-9541. Tell him Matt Poulson referred you. Matt is a good friend of mine in phx, he owns a pool cleaning comapany there, so he knows who to go to.

    No problem! Let me know if he works out. My friend said he has been doing spa's for over 40 years so he should be able to give you some insight or just repair it.

    Hey I spoke to your spa guy you refereed me too and he was able to actually troubleshoot the issue over the phone and figure it out for me.

    Long story short- I have a small leak (Steady Drip) from the compression fitting on my impeller to the hose's. I replaced the hose, gaskets, compression fittings, everything I could find. Still leaked.. Talked to your guy and he said make sure the hose isn't being bent up in any way. So I did notice when I got my impeller replaced it wasn't sitting at the right angle. It wasn't drastic, but I took some wood, wedged it under there and sure enough, no leak.. We are talking about 1/8th of an inch was causing this leak.

    Now my spa is at 103 and waiting for me to come home, grab a cold beer and hop in. I can't wait!

    So thanks again Beerye!

    Why not 7.1 and get your center channel? lol

    Honestly my 3.1 setup is all I really want right now. Don't really need surround though I could hook up my rear yamaha's. Polk Monitor70's are fantastic.
