Hot tub Leaking? HELP

Started filling my hot tub today that I just bought, guy said it only had one leak--yah right! It's leaking lower back jets on two of the corners and on one set of shoulder jets on the other side. It also had set empty for a whole year.

Can I access the plumbing by removing the jets from the inside or do I have to jack it up and start pulling foam out to find the leak?

Usually I attack leaks from the outside. Most spas the jets trim ring inside the spa is only used for holding the eyeball or spinner nozzle in place and is not responsible for sealing against water. It's possible you have a leak where the plumbing/piping is glued to the jet housing. Depending on the brand of spa the cabinet may have been filled with rigid foam which will have to be dug out to access the plumbing.

Thanks for the depressing news. My cabinet is filled with FOAM so I'll have a blast digging through the foam.
