This is due to bacteria in the water lines. this happens when the tub is not used every couple of days. The dirty bathwater dries in the water lines and festers while not being used for days (weeks) later. You should use a good cleaner through the pipes at least once a quarter or better yet once a month. This a link to an awesome product. System Flush

How to clean a whirlpool bath tub


There are three main things to tackle when cleaning a hot tub or whirlpool bath. Those things are:

1. Bacteria
2. Grease
3. Grime and dirt

To address all three of these issues you'll likely need separate products. There are liquid versions of the degreaser and cleaner, and there are tablet versions for sanitizing.

Simply fill up the whirlpool bath with warm water, put the cleaning liquid in the cleaning outlet (or if you don't have this, just pour it into the bath). Put the tablet in the bath and then just run it.

This should do the job.

How do I get bad smell and crud out of jacuzzi jets


If you are experiencing a "smell" coming out of the water when you use the tub then you should use one of the products that are made for cleaning jetted tubs pipes.
Here is a link to a site that carries those items. These will get rid of the nasty smell and flecks of bacteria when you use the tub too.

I want to clean the jets in my tub they look mouldy


Cleaning your Tub
There are several options for cleaning the piping on a jetted bathtub.
The reason you have a residue on the bathtub surface when you are done bathing is because there is bacteria built up in the plumbing of the jetted tub. In order to remove that and reduce the amount of "yucky stuff" coming into the tub when using it, we recommend a regular usage of a jet cleaning product about once every couple of months
Here is a link at the bottom to the cleaning products I can find right now. There may be others out there that I am not aware of but I do know these products work well in all jetted bathtubs.

Stale water odour when jets havent been used on massage type spa


There are several cleaning methods on the internet. I would contact the maker of the tub and see if they have a cleaning agent. I know that Jacuzzi and Aquatic industries have a cleaner that works rather well. I have seen one on the net that uses 2 teaspoons of powder dishwasher soap mixed with bleach. I have not tried this one so don't know how well it works. The ones from the tub companies are not cheap, but if you want something that is going to do the job, spend the money.

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.

How to clean out jacuxxi bath pipes


All Jacuzzis have a suction fitting. I do not which cleaning solution you are using but most require that you fill the tub to at least 4-6 inches above the suction fitting (some require hot water and some don't specify) then add the appropriate amount of cleaning solution and then for a specified period of time. The suction fitting is the only way to get the solution into the piping; unless you have a professional plumber do it. If you have any questions please ask.


Thx

Difference tubs and air baths


whirlpool tub has jets that circulate the water, where an air bath uses bubbles that rise gently from the bottom of the tub. Whirlpools are typically used for therapy, air baths are used for a much gentler experience. Air baths can be used with aromatherapy/essential oils. Both offer a spa-like experience.
