Check to see if there is an open valve where the water exits the tub. If there is a valve, shut it and your problem should be solved. good luck

Hottub drained itself


If your hot tub water has all drained then you need to look for a leak obviously.
Start in the cabinet area where there are unions attaching the pump and the electronics. Sometimes those will vibrate loose and will begin to leak.
If all the unions are tight and you see no water then you need to start to look elsewhere around the tub for water leaks. It could be a broken manifold in the plumbing or a jet body.

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!

How do you clean the jets in a whirlpool tub? Is there any product to put in water and run jets to clean them?


Put white vinegar in the water and run it through your tub. Fill the tub to it's maximum running capacity, which is normally just above the jets, and pour a gallon of vinegar in the water with it. Let it run with the vinegar for about 20 minutes, then turn it off and let the vinegar sit in the jets for about 30 minutes. Then start up the jets again for about another 10 minutes and drain. Then run plan water through the jets for about 15 minutes, drain and that should do it. I would recommend doing this at least once every 2 months depending on your water type and how often you use the tub.

I can see outside of tub get wet and it leaks by the drain..its brand new..only does it when its drained after being filled to a high level..is it cracked or something? can't see any but dont know what...


If it only leaks when filled to a high level, the rubber washer behing the overflow plate is misaligned or missing. this plate is on the tub wall above the drain, and hld in in by 1 or 2 screws.

My 2000 kohler tub drain leaks. The drain itself


Need clarification....the drain leaks to the ceiling below, or it doesn't hold water? If it doesn't hold water, no need to replace the ring. Those can be adjusted. Simply pull up on on the lever and screw it in clockwise. This will lower the stop and hold the water. If it actually leaks below, unscrew said stopper, grab a pair of needle nose pliers and place them in the drain (to grab the strainer) and use another pair to loosen. Once off, clean around drain and clean strainer, apply plumbers putty to the strainer, apply pipe "dope" (thread sealant) to the threads and tighten back in. Good luck!

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.

Black come out the jets when first operating them


Didn't fully drain at the end of last year, that gunk was mold, rust and gunk that's been sitting in the piping since last year. Not really a problem just remember to take a closer look at the plumbing on your tub next year and get all of the possible places that water may hold drained completely.

Indoor jacuzzi bathtub problem


Just add 1/2 cup bleach to a full tub of clean water, turn on the jets.

Grab a small goldfish strainer / net and scoop out the moldy chunks.

Keep cycling the water until most of the chunks are gone.

Drain the rub, refill and add 1/2 cup bleach again, repeating the process.

The problem is caused by water left in the lines after use, and it turns moldy.

After each use...drain the tub completely, then turn on the jets for about 10 seconds. This will purge the lines of any standing water.

Fill the tub with clean water and cycle the jets with bleach once a week to prevent any further problem.

Hope this helps...it worked for me, I had the same problem.
