They typically have a front panel that is removable, (or other access
panel) since eventually the motor will need service. Most leaks should be
reachable from there.
Hey, thanks for all the replies. We plan on running it before we close
it up. The end of the tub with the motor backs to a attic space. So
accessing it is cake.
