Do Mirolin water jet tub jets come out for cleaning ?

No they do not here is a simple way to clean the jets and the piping.

Regular Jet Cleaning

To clean the entire whirlpool system and tub exterior, follow this process every month or more frequently if needed. Don't let dirt and grime build up or you'll have more scrubbing to do to get the tub clean.
  1. Fill the tub with hot water, approximately an inch above the highest jet.
  2. Make sure the water temperature reaches at least 140? F (60? C).
  3. Add 1/2 cup of laundry detergent or the amount used to clean 1 load of laundry as recommended by the detergent manufacturer.
  4. Run the jets for 15 minutes.
  5. Drain the tub and refill with clean lukewarm water.
  6. Run the jets for another 15 minutes.
  7. Drain the bathtub.
  8. Dry the tub completely by wiping it down with a clean towel.

How to fix keurig b60 not pumping? water

You need to clean the water jets (the sharp hypodermic needle-like jets). Use a straightened paper clip to clean (ream) out the two in removable plastic bottom and one in top. That will fix the problem.

Cloudy water

Always clean you jet tub as directed by the manual. If you don't have one, than fill tub above the jets, add liquid dishwasher gel (not tabs) with bleach and run through the jets for 20 minutes. Drain, fill with clean water and run two times to clean the tub and jets and then use. Be sure your metal filter is clean of hair and soap debris. This will keep your tub and jets nice and clean. Also recommend using Epsom salts and either essential oil of lavender or eucalyptus to your bath. Both essential oils have antibacterial properties. If you want it simpler, purchase Dr. Teal's lavender soak from the drug store. Happy soaking!

Why does 2002 honda xr50 run better with choke at half way instead of off

The jets are a little clogged or gummed up. Clean the carburetor jets and it will run better with the choke off. What happens is with the choke off, there is too much air and not enough fuel in the air fuel mixture because not enough fuel is passing through the jets but the same amount of air is always allowed. With the choke on, you are restricting the amount of air flow which helps to correct the fuel/air mixture into the engine. To clean the jets, you will remove the float bowl from the bottom of the carburetor, there will be at least two jets (sometimes up to four) in the bottom of the carb, remove both jets and use carb cleaner and compressed air to clean them. DO NOT USE any type of tool because it can scar the jet passage and change the fuel flow as well. Also be sure to use the proper screw driver to remove the jets since if you damage them it can also change the fuel flow. Also, when removing the jets, be aware of any washers or spacers that may be in place when removing. Good luck

How do I remove jets to clean them? I have a

Some jets are removable for cleaning and some are not. Consult Kohler about the jet removal. Normally if a jet is removable it will turn to the left (looking at the jet straight on) and then will pop with a little more force. I suggest contacting Kohler before attempting to remove the jets.
