Hot Spring Classic leak

1998 Hot Spring Classic Model F
Leaks down to Moto Massage. No leak in pump area - only in MM area.
Air tube had broken off at one of the MM jets. Can that cause a leak?

Yes, water can get into the air tubes especially below the waterline.

Thanks for the reply.
The 1/4" ID vinyl airtube was broken where it connects to the moto massage tube. It was still connected ok at its upper outlet nipple and dangling open in the water.
Would that allow water to be forced up the air tube? If so would it be a water leak?

Another question: Is there a place I can buy a plumbing diagram for the Hot Spring 1998 Classic Model F? I can't get a reply from Hot Spring but surely they have diagrams.

Yes, water can be forced up into the air tubes. It's easiest when the air is turned off. Without airflow the water can easily go into the air tubes especially if someone partially blocks a jet. Also the check valves in the air system quite often leak.

I don't know of plumbing diagrams for Hot Springs. It's relatively easy to get a general idea though by looking at the jets and air control locations.
