    I have whirlpool jets that are leaking. There are two small holes on either side of the jet escutcheon about 2 inches apart, is there a special tool used for the removal and tightening of the jet. If so, where could such a tool be found?

    A good whirlpool tub dealer should have those spanner wrenches in stock. Having said that, I wouldn't even hold the ten-foot pole if Mark wanted to work on it. Every whirpool tub I've worked on was a writhing bag of snakes waiting to be opened. If you insist, however, more power to you. Make damn sure you've got good access to everything "under the covers".
