Question about Jacuzzi - Bathtub - Alcove - Navona - R105917
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.
