The American Standard Williamsburg Elite whirlpool tub I installed a
couple months back has been working well, but I've noticed a leak at the
"air actuator switch" that turns it on and off. Since the tub is in a
shower enclosure, the switch gets very wet of course, and water is
leaking through the body of the switch and dripping into the area
enclosed by the tub. I checked to make sure it wasn't leaking around
the switch; no worries there as it is sealed well with silicone. The
water is coming THROUGH the switch.
I'm not terribly familiar with these air switches; I'd love to
dissassemble it so I can find out why water is getting through. But, it
is solidly mounted with silicone to the tub deck and I'm reluctant to
mess with it too much in my ignorance.
Anybody have experience with these switches? It's probably just a
"dissassemble, make sure gaskets are seated, reassemble" kind of
For reference, see the tub and related documents here:
Any help appreciated!
