Likely your mixer valve cartridge has a blown o-ring.
Replace the cartridge.
Jets not working may be as simple as the GFI outlet being tripped.

Thanks

How do you eat freeze dried food?


You don't need to do any cooking to prepare freeze dried food. You just add hot water and wait 10 minutes. If you don't have any hot water you can use cold water to prepare cold food.

I have a walk-in jacuzzi-type bathroom tub. When the automatic blower comes on it sends out a mildew smell. How can I get rid of it?


First of all, after each use, refill the tub with warm water and run the jets for about 10 minutes to clear out any excess debris etc.

To eliminate the smell/mildew/mold. :
-Fill the tub to above the jet level with HOT (over 140deg.) water
-Add two tablespoons of low sudsing dishwasher detergent and five cups of distilled white vinegar
-Run the jets for 20 minutes
-Drain the tub and use a tooth brush or any small brush to gently clean inside and around all of the jets and nozzles, remove all foreign material you can from the areas inside (disassemble the outter rings to do so) and around the outlets. Be as thorough as possible.
-Rinse and refill the tub with CLEAN COLD water and run the jets for another 20 minutes.
-Drain the water and the smell and mildew should be eliminated.

To prevent future mildew build up/odors once a month fill the tub with HOT water (again) and four to five cups of vinegar (no detergent) and run the jets for 20 minutes. Drain and fill with clean cold water running jets another 20 minutes. If the tub is used very often you can increase the scheduled flushing of the system to every two to three weeks. The mildew/mold flourishes in the warm wet areas inside the jet tubing and nozzles. Diligent maitenance is the best way to make sure you're not bathing with any unwanted guests in your bathwater!

-Take care

Need to find out why 2 of the 6 jets on my acer swirl bath tub don't push water out like the other 4, and where can I find replacement jets. We bought the home recently and it was built in 2000. so...


see if the jet faces turn at all. Sometimes the jets are adjustable to allow more pressure from some jets.
turn the face of the jet and see what happens.

Hi. my dishwasher finishes its cycle but the dishes are cold and wet (and very poorly cleaned). it seems that the water is not getting hot. what might be causing this?


First check your hot water hearter and see if its working right. If so try cleaning the jets in the dishwasher. Over time the will clog with particals and restrict water flow. Its easy to take them off. just unscrew whatever is holding the jets in and putting it back togeth should be just as easy.

Can I take the bottom part of the dishwaher apart


Mkae sure you are running kitchen hot water faucet before starting dish washer. If not you are getting mostly a cold water wash thru out the cycle. Also make sure the jet dry dispenser is full. Always use the liquid jet dry as the small cubes you can get do not work nearly as well.

The wm does not accept cold water. I put it on cold cycle and it does not work the water line is fine... what could be the problem ?


Why has nobody mentioned the fact that if you “draw off” hot water using a tap beside the washing machine you can get “instant” hot water to your hot-fill. I have been doing this for years – now that all my hot water is heated by a crabon-neutral energy source (either wood or solar) I feel it is even more energy efficient.
As for water consumption, my house has a secondary return pipe on the hot water circuit with a temperature sensor fitted to the pump so that it only switches on when you turn a hot water tap on – you than turn the tap off, wait 5-10 minutes while the water circulates, then turn it on again, by which time the hot water only has ashort distance to travel and you don’t waster much down the drain.
However, I have been interested to read about the pros of cold fill only, especially the arguments about such a small volume of water being used anyway and the possibly improved wash performance? Also, I was dismayed to read that washing machines with hot and cold fill don’t use the hot wate very efficiently.
So would I be better off going for a hot and cold machine while they’re still available or going for a high-efficiency cold fill only machine? I am still minded to get an LG with hot and cold fill… comments please?

I have an Eljer jet bathtub with a smell to the water when we bat


What you smell is algae forming in the pipes. If you have small black particles in the tub when running the jets, it is algae. Fill the tub with hot water, add 2 teaspoons of cascade dish soap and 1/2 cup bleach. run the tub for 15 minutes and drain. fill tub with cold water, run for 15 minutes and drain, tub is now ready to use. repeat as necessary.

Cold air coming from jets in a large garden tub indoors


jets pull outside air in thru the water jet in a natural Venturi action. If you are referring to the air bubbles in a bathtub then, yes there are air blowers that have heaters inside them to warm the air before if goes into the tub.
