Question about Home
We have just moved into our new home, it had reno's done 7 years ago. The bathroom has an air jet tub. There are holes all along the bottom sides of the tub.I have ran the tub at least 30 times. I started with Jet tub cleaner, then bleach, and then oxyclean. But the problem will not stop. I have let it soak for a day in oxyclean, but that still did not solve it. We have taken the side panel off and can not see any problems. I am very frustrated and would love to know how to fix this!
It sounds like there is a build-up of some kind in the lines. Replacing the lines may be your simplest solution. Replacing the entire system would definitely fix the black flakes.

SOURCE: Leaks from jets along outer wall
This is a hard fix, The jets are glued on to the back of the tub with an epoxy type material. the jets should spin on and off from the inside of the tub. You need to determine if it is the hole where the jet is that's leaking or if it is the jet assembly and tubing that is leaking. If it is the jet hole that is leaking, spin the jet off and use aquarium grade silicone (Lowes carries it)
spread this around the piece sticking thru the tub and spin the jet back on. This is a hit or miss fix. No easy fix if it is the tubes or jet assembly, full access necessary for this repair.

one of the quick ways to fix leaks at jets is by using Millaput two putty resins mixed and worked round the outside of the defective jet hope this helps
