I have a leak in my Hot Springs Jetsetter. I feel like it is in one of the jets similar to earlier posts. How do I go about removing the outside panels? Thanks!

There should be staples on each end holding the panels in place. You need to use the end of a claw hammer or something similar to pry them up with.

I've got a Hot Spring Grandee 1992 and it sprung a slow leak some where in the lower 1/3. I don't think I can take off the side panal so it looks like my only option is to turn it on the side. Any insite to correcting this problem would be greatly appreciated.

The side panels are removable. They are stapled onto a frame that goes around the spa. Once the skirting has been removed you may see signs of water where it's leaking. If not evident, a wooden dow rod can be used to probe around the spa to find moisture. If you do not feel comfortable removing the skirt the spa can be tipped on it's side and using the wooden dow you can locate the leak same way. The down side to this would be it is easier to find a leak if there is water still in the spa to at least the level it is draining to.

For the life of me I can't see any staples.
I'm pretty handy -replaced a circulating pump,heater elements,pump gaskets and contacts but question if staples were used on this old unit.
The panels are single boards 2 1/2in wide which seem to be tongue and grove. Around the corners they run vertical and the 4 center panals which are 40 ins wide run horzinal,
all the boards tuck up under the top molded shell. Would they have glued the individual boards in place bach in 1992 did they use staples?I would hate to start pulling of boards because I'm sure it will look like a desaster when I put them back on.
Still looking for help!
