You are correct, you must have a P-TRAP. I believe the instructions are talking about not having an xtra trap between the disposal and the existing trap.

Odors coming from jacuzzi bathtube we hardly ever use it .but there an oder coming from it

The water in the trap could be evaporating over time and allowing sewer gas to enter the tub causing the smell. Try using some RV antifreeze in the drain. The antifreeze won't evaporate. Hope this helps.

Omnisoft water softener

I think when it come to soft water they are a waste of time and effort. The Tucson, AZ water supply may be low but it is tasty and free. Just avoid the hassle and mess.

Now it is summer, and we have a horrible smell coming out of jacuzzi drainage, what should we use to get rit of the smell

hiya:) all tubs,sinks,etc are plumbed w/a P-trap which holds water and prevents sewer gasses from venting into your home. if the unit has not been used in a while the water may have evaporated, allowing the sewer gas to pass freely into your home. this is not only unpleasant it is potentially dangerous and/or unhealthy. IF the unit has not been in use for some time then just run the water for a min and the smell should go away. If this is not the problem just text me back and we'll go from there:)

Kohler K-1239-HR 1-speed whirlpool pump with air switch. Pump starts then immediatly stops. It worked fine then for no apparant reason is acting up.

the pumps impeller could of became jammed w/something like a wash cloth or u could have extremyl hard water which can cause calcuim build up in the impeller of the pump an cse the same thing most pumps have a thermal over load protector in them that will shut the pump off as soon as it starts to overheat which will occur rather fast if the pump became clogged.If you have shutoff valve close them leading into the pump (no mater what there still will b water that will leak even w/shutoff vavles so be prepared) unscrew the line connected to the intake side of the pump an look or feel for a clogg or sometimes all it is is a airlock u can get a bubble of air that gets trap in the intake line of the pump an can cause the same thing try to find the main jet an force water back into the jet in the spa so the waer is being forced into the pumps intake an that should take care of ne airlock.HINT IF THE SPA IS OLD DRAIN THE SPA DO NOT TRY TO USE THE SHUTOFF VALVE THEY CAN BECOME WEAK AN SNAP OFF IN THE CLOSED POSITION AN IF THAT HAPPENS YOU ARE BLANK OUT OF LUCK I AVOID THEM AT ALL CAUSES UNLESS THEY ARE NEWER ITS FASTER TO DRAIN IT THEN IT IS TO REPLACE THE ENTIRE VALVE AN LINE

I am instaling a shower under my house and i was hoping to get away with not cutting into the concrete for the drainage, is it possible to raise the shower bottom a foot of the ground for the drainage, and...

Yes, you can raise to avoid the cut by raising shower as long as gravity drain can occur, i.e. you can drain the shower to connect to existing drain lines. Definately put the s-trap in, if no trap then plumbing gas comes back and shower will smell. Remember to put in a plumbing vent or tie in to existing vent.

Odor coming from bathtub

Hi thejobes

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber

It's been my expirience 99 times out of 100 that you'll find the culprit is a bad toilet to floor seal, better known as a bowl wax. Some handimen can do this replacement but I strongly recomend a pro. It is certainly better than the alternative. If you're unlucky to be that 1% and the bowl wax dosen't work then your problem is a cracked or brocken pipe somewhere.
