Question about Whirlpool Royal A-909 Bathtub

1 Answer

I have a 14 year old Aker whirlpool tub. During bathroom remodeling, I found a leak where the pipe comes out of the jet. I could not repair it. Are the jets available yet? I found two numbers on the bottom of the tub. A 161177 and 73 A.

Jet bodies match only the jet trim that goes with them. These are a set and are not interchangeable with other models or brands of jet. Each Bath Part in unique in subtle ways only.
In order to find the correct jet body you need to match up the face of the jet trim to what is shown online. Once you know that brand of jet trim we can find you the correct jet body.
I would invite you to search our site at US Parts Center and see if you can find the jet face that you have.
Once you do we will be able to match up the correct jet body for you.

SOURCE: i've been told by a plumber that the tubing to the jet is leaking

You could try Plumber's epoxy stick or paste if the leak is not to big!
The stick has the resin & hardener already in it. The paste you would have to mix equal amount together. I would recommend the paste because it would probably stick to the surface better for you application! Available at Lowes.

SOURCE: where can I buy just the brass trim on the jet for

The trim for any brand whirlpool (w/p) tub must be ordered from that specific tub manufacturer. They will need to know exactly what your particular model is.

The model of your w/p tub, and serial number, is most often, but not always, located on the motor end of your unit but not on the motor itself. Access to this end of the tub, if installed to code, should get you the information you need, otherwise you are out of options'

The jets on my aker Swirlbath are coming on by themselves in the middle of the night. What is the remedy for this problem?

Some tubs with air jets have a sensor that detects water in the piping and cycles the air pump to blow out the water in the air jets. Make sure the faucet is not dripping as the water leaking into the tub could be causing the pump cycling problem.

Hope this helps.

if you have a water stain on the ceiling below your tub then you have a water leak. There is no easy solution for this. You must get to the underside of the tub in order to watch the jets when the tub is full of water to isolate the leak and then have it repaired by a plumber.

Broken drain pipe under washer tub

Well,i wouldn't solder the old pipe back on.You could replace the pipe or replace the tub entirely.But you're looking at about the same price to repair an old machine for the price of buying a new one.techs come at about $50 per hour and you're looking at about an 8 hour day to repair it.a new machine should run you about $ 400 to $ 500.

Lasco whirlpool tub leaks. Water runs out on

Sorry, the tub will have to pulled out to find out what is leaking so it can be fixed. There is just no other way UNLESS you can open up the wall on the blind side of the tube. (but its probably and exterior wall...if the house is vinyl sided, it can be done. If brick, you'll have to pull the tub). If you just wanted to convert to a tub only, maybe Bathfitters has an insert solution...

How can I unclog plumbing in whirlpool tub used to clean dogs?

Depending on how mechanically inclined you are, take apart the tub and clean everything out. No easy task, I know, but who want old dog hair floating around? That will be your best bet.

How to identify make and model of old whirlpool tub?

This is a problem common to all whirlpool/air jet style tubs. The pumps become air locked due to the water evaporating from lack of use. All tubs need, and have, SOME means of priming the pump, this is most likely what the problem was, originally, for you. This time in particular you found it to be electrical in nature but for future reference, for you and all who have these style of tubs, I am putting this out there. Some where on the tub, usually along the top edge of the tub is a vent knob that controls the amount of air that the pump is allowed to mix with the water for the jets, usually by closing this valve all the way (tub needs to be full of water of course) and running the pump for a minute or 2, you should be able to get the pump pumping water again, if not you may need to do something else with your particular set-up to get it purged of air, the pumps in jacuzzi tubs are designed to pump water, not air, so if the motor is running but you get no jet action, your most likely air locked and need to prime pump/purge air.
