My Pearl jacuzzi tub installed around 1993 needs a new pop-up drain. The black rubber part of the pop-up drain has torn, and thus the tub leaks water. The stem of my pop-up is entirely made of white

The top of my old pop-up drain is silver and says: L.A.CA.PAT# 4,764,993. I live in L.A., CA.

SOURCE: Jacuzzi Hot Water Heating Capacity

Depending on how you heat the hot water, whether gas or electric, is a missing detail in your problem, but if it is electric then your problem is the size, being only 40 gal, and needing probably about that to fill the tub, will always lead to your current position.
If the hot water heater is gas, the chances of it keeping up are slightly better, but again things like the temperature of the water leaving the tank, any mixing valves, etc. will effect the water temp at your tub.  Before raising any temps, make sure you follow local code, as not to scald yourself or others.

The only product I know of which will do what you ask is an item called Plast-Aid Acrylic and PVC repair kit. Google it and you will find the website. It is about $20. and it works like a charm. good luck

SOURCE: 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 worked for me, I had the same problem.

SOURCE: Jacuzzi jets smell like rotten eggs when turned on.

Any time you get a strong smell of rotten eggs it is due to a high concentration of sulfer in the water. Are you on well water? I would suggest using a cleaner like to clean out your system.

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.

I don't ever use any cleaner other than vinegar and warm water in the jacuzzi tub due to certain chemicals which could cause problems with the breaking down of pipe glue and other o-rings and the pump sealed bearings itself...............I would run it with vinegar again for 15min which is safe to you and your family but it may be breaking down and wearing out depending on the age............Hope this helps.

once a jet face has fallen out of a hot tub that means the insert has failed and is broken. you will need to locate a new jet insert. Jet inserts have little tabs on them that hold them in place and when they get worn out the jet face will fall out into the tub.

If it is leaking from around the flange then you will need access to the under side of the tub drain to 1) tighten the drain connection or 2) replace the tub drain connection or 3) remove the drain, clean it and replace it again properly with the rubber washer and plumbers putty.

Black spider like material that may come from jaccuzi

Is it greasy, oily spider web type junk? Coming through the pipes, new construction or new tub? Could be from the pump, not that it is leaking oil but it has oil in it from the manufacture of it. I would call the jacuzzi people and tell them what you have and that your kids play in the tub and drink the stuff, ought to get them to move on that one. Ask them if they know what it is and what to do about it? Hope this helps.

It could be the pressure on the drain isn't allowing the rubber around the drain pop up to come unlodged from the floor of the tub. I have ran into this problem a few times. the best way we found to take care of it was to install a push pull type drain assembly or try and adjust the drain pop up so it pops up higher allowing the rubber around it to break the seal and start to drain. take some pictures and post them i might be able to help more
