Smell coming from jacuzzi whirpool tub

We run bleach down the drain about every two weeks but the smell always comes back quickly. I tell you this smells like there is something dead in there. You cannot stand to go in the bathroom. Also I cannot figure out how I can take the jet covers off and clean them. Please help me.

The smell is most likely due to residual water left within the jet plumbing system. There are anti-microbial cleaning solutions designed and manufactured to clean the jet plumbing system. Bleach will eventually degrade the system and may cause major problems in the future. On newer redesigned whirlpool tubs manufacturers have approached this problem by gravity slope of the jet plumbing as well as adding features such as anti-microbial coatings within the pipe system. If the smell is comming from the drain it sounds like you may have trap siphon issues or a dry trap. If the tub is not used on a regular basis then the water within the trap may evaporate, thus allowing sewer gases to enter the home. Typically there is not enough water within the trap to allow the smell you are experiencing, Try just turning the water on in the tub for a min every so often in order to refill the trap.

The jet covers normally unscrew counter clock wise .As far as the smell goes it could be clumps of old hair after time the old hair usually causes a pretty bad smell.Try snaking the drain.This might help.

How to get a smell out of a hotpoint fridge.we try bread soda.what else can we use


You may have had something drip and somehow get under the fridge. I know blood dripping from meat will smell. It could have dripped down through the defrost drain tube to the pan underneath. You can access the pan from the rear by removing the cardboard cover. If the smell seems to be coming from the pan, it's difficult to remove so I would just pour some bleach in it to kill any smell and you may can wipe it out from there. The drain tube may also have the smell in it so you can pour some bleach into it from the inside of the freezer at the bottom of the rear panel. You can move the fridge to see if anything is pooled on the floor that might smell.

Bad smell in dishwasher, have cleaned and even used bleach. The smell just comes back. even smells on the dishes. the smell is like a stink bug.


Three things, dryer coil, food stuck inside.

Most washers have a one way valve on the drain and a water trap
created with the line, so no water or smell can go into the machine.

Check the valve, remove the hose,that should be under the sink,
wrap a cloth around it and blow,it should not be able to blow into it.
Then make sure the hose at some point go higher then where it
connects to the drain.

Fill a bucket and fill the washer until you see a little in the bottom of the machine, watch it for a few minutes to see if it drains, it
shouldn't, dump in a bottle of white vinegar and run the machine, make sure dry is off. Then run it again, do not add anything.

Foul odor coming from kitchen sink/dishwasher area????


Hi Jenny - I had a terrible smell coming from under my sink, and I too thought it was a dishwasher/garbage disposal drainage issue. I used vinegar, baking soda, bleach and hot water on a daily basis. When I cut out the wallboard from under the sink and the smell got even worse, however, there was no sign of any water leaks or evidence of a dead animals. Come to find out, when I had a "friend" cut out a pass through from my kitchen (above the sink) into the den, he cut the pvc exhaust pipe and didn't re-route it nor cap allowing the fumes to escape outside via the attic. Thus, the fumes had no place to go other than down. The smell confused me because I thought it was rotten food or most likely a dead mouse trapped between the wall. The smell was actually causing me to get headaches. It's been almost 24 hours that this was repaired and I already can "smell" the difference. I hope this helps! Good luck.
