Water comes straight from your supply via a clear hose then through a filter that should stop all bacteria & germs, I would check that first, might need changing.

IRobot Mirra 530 Tips & Tricks

Tips from iRobot Resources:

Run Mirra only when in the water.
Mirra has a very strong motor system that needs to stay cool for optimal performance and life. Your pool water around the motor helps keep it cool during operation. Therefore Mirra should not be run outside of the pool due to the risk of overheating the motor.

Choose the correct filter canister.
Use the Large Debris Filter Canisters when the pool contains a significant amount of large debris (leaves, insects, etc.) and when the pool is opened for the season or cleaning during the Fall. The Fine Filter Canisters are ideal for filtering small debris such as algae, sand, silt and bacteria and for regular pool cleaning maintenance during the peak of your pool season.

Keep Mirra working at peak performance.
Mirra uses the powerful force of water pumped through its filter to clean and circulate pool water and to propel itself around your pool. It pumps and filters more than a gallon of water every second! Clean the filter canisters regularly by removing them from Mirra, emptying its contents and hosing it out. Keeping the filter canisters clean will ensure optimal cleaning results and strong pump suction.

Allow the motor to cool before removing the robot from the pool.
Mirra's power supply has an automatic timer that shuts Mirra off after each cleaning cycle. Wait 20 minutes before removing Mirra from the pool to allow the pump motor to cool. Turn the power supply off and unplug it from the electrical outlet before removing Mirra from the pool.

Oil type substance is streaking down the side of the tub and apperars to be coming out of the jets any ideas how to fix it

This sounds like bacteria coming from the water lines. When was the last time you ran a cleaner through the jets?
You should run a good Jet Clean type product of Maintenance Product in order to prevent the build up of bacteria in the water lines when the bath tub is not in use.

What is the difference between a filter and a pump in a fish tank?

A filter maintains a natural environment that for fish thatbalances the good and bad bacteria in the tank. Additionally, a filter can remove toxins, chemicals and other unwantedmaterials from the water. The filterworks by taking water in from the tank and returning it clean.A pump is just a pump. It pumps air into the tank and creates bubbles, and sometimes a current. It does not clean the tank or balance thebacteria and PH like a filter does.

We use our jacuzzi once every two weeks. Every time we get small black particles of debris of some sort that sticks to the side of the tub. What is the problem?

the problem is bacteria building up in the water lines once the water dries. You should be using a jet cleaning product to clean the water lines out before they dry.

We have several different good cleaners on our site that all work well at keeping bacteria out of your water lines.

Sour smelling/ tasting water from bathroom faucet when not used for several hours. Smells like traces in water bottles, which I can bleach or wash in dishwasher. How do I clean possible bacteria from a...

Assuming the problem is right there at the faucet, and not further upstream (which you could verify by taking a little water from the tub faucet), perhaps you could try this--- turn off the water supply then remove the flexible water supply lines from the faucet underneath the sink. These are usually not too hard to remove from the faucet with a basin wrench (less than $10). If it's easy, remove the other end of the flexible water supply lines too. Maybe you should replace these. Otherwise, get the water out of those flexible line, then put some bleach into them. Reconnect to the faucet. Leave the faucet turned off, and turn the water supply back on. Then very slightly turn on the faucet to allow the air out, then turn it off. Leave the bleach to soak for a while (maybe 30 minutes) then flush plenty of water through it. If the smell comes back, there is probably something organic stuck in the faucet and you will have to disassemble or replace it. Good luck.

No water supplied

float could be stuck . pull the float inside the dishwasher up and down then try it. could be a bad pump, or angle stop is closed or clogged. if float doesn`t work. turn the water supply line off located under the kitchen sink. make sure it`s off by turning the hot water knob on your kitchen faucet. unplug the unit also under the sink. take the bottom cover off and look for the supply line that goes into the water pump. unscrew the supply line. get a bucket and turn the water supply back on just alittle to see if tou get water coming out. if you do it`s not clogged. so it`s either the pump or it`s the timer switch 9 out of ten times it`s the timer switch. good luck.

Icemaker Waterline has Bacteria in it

This bacteria (for most of us) is not harmful. Ive never heard of anyone becoming sick from this stuff but I suppose someone might have an allergy. I see it in Ice Machines that are in restaurants all the time. It seems more prevalent in ones that do a lot of baking where yeast or Bread is used a lot like Bakeries Pizza and Hamburger fast foods...places.
Do you store a bread doe in your refrigerator? The air communicates with the freezer air. This is how its transferred. Clean the reddish stuff out again. Clean and wipe the outer containers and the walls and ceiling and under crisper in the refrigerator. Then if your going to store anything that you use with yeast or other types of activator that puts off CO2 (I E Baking soda or power?) double bag it in plastic bags. See if this solves your problem. If the stuff comes back it must be in your water supply. Are you on a treated water supply?

Hope this helps if so please rate me accordingly and good luck.

1994 Kenmore 90 series washer smells musty

If you do not use a hot water cycle every so often it can contribute to the build up of mold or mildew inside the washer drain lines, pump and tub.. This is a common problem for those that only use cold water cycles. The detergent alone sometimes is not enough to kill bacteria. You also need the heat from hot water. I would recommend that you run a cleaning cycle on the hottest setting you have about once per week as a preventive measure. Add some bleach to the water to kill any existing bacteria. NOTE: This may take a couple of wash loads before you notice a difference. If you wish to conserve by not wasting water and energy by running an empty wash tub every week, switch to washing your whites in hot water with a little bleach to keep them brighter. This will kill bacteria in the washer in the process. I hope this helps you.
