When you installed the new jet, did you install a new gasket on the wall fitting or use 100% RTF type silicone?
In order to seal a wall fitting that is cracked an leaking, the replacement must have either the gasket or silicone to seal the wall fitting against the wall of the tub or it will leak when filled with water.

SOURCE: Lasco whirlpool tub leaks. Water runs out on

Sorry, the tub will have to pulled out to find out what is leaking so it can be fixed. There is just no other way UNLESS you can open up the wall on the blind side of the tube. (but its probably and exterior wall...if the house is vinyl sided, it can be done. If brick, you'll have to pull the tub). If you just wanted to convert to a tub only, maybe Bathfitters has an insert solution...

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.

SOURCE: jacuzzi whirlpool hot tub, flashes Fl-1 has new filters,

Sounds like a bad heating element. This is located in a stainless steel tube under or around the main control box behind the cover around the tub. It is not hard to replace but should be done by a pro. The part is avaliable online.

most of the jets in a Hot Tub are adjustable. the face of each jet can turn on/off. Make sure they are all open or you will not have good water flow and cause too much back pressure on the pump and cause it to fail.
check the jet faces when you turn the pump on.
also a dirty filter will cause low water flow so check that too. take it out and see what pressure you get through the jets.

Jets don't work in the jetted tub.


First the obvious, most are electrically connected to a ground fault device, ether an outlet or a breaker. BEFORE ADDING WATER, check these out to make sure they are not tripped. Most all tubs have a minimum water level which must be reached before the jets will operate. This is usually a piece of trim located above the depth of the jets. Make sure the tub is filled to cover this part. If you cant identify the water level device fill the tub so that all the jets are covered by an inch or 2. Some tubs have push button switches or touch pads to control the motor, some have touch sensitive trim. There may be some sort of medallion from the maker on the tub, simply touching it will start the tub. Once you get it going most tubs have a built in timer that turns off the pump in 15 - 20 minutes. For more tub time just hit the switch again but keep in mind that extended exposure in a hot tub can mess with your blood pressure and cause you to loose balance or pass out, hence the 20 minute timer.

Are they white flakes? Sounds like you have lime deposits turning loose in the plumbing.

Was the unit purchased and installed new? Maybe the privious owner had a hard water problem.

In either case, you may have to invest in a water softener.

I know I can take a bath without turning on the jets. However; does the bath water with soap flow back into the jets? I like bubble baths, If I leave the jets off can I use the bubble bath without having...


The soapy water will fill all of the jets, tubes and the pump assembly. Will it hurt the tub if the jets are not running? The soap film will build up in the jets, tubes and pump assembly and can possibly cause damage if the tub is run at a later date. Contact the tub manufacture and see if there is a safe bubble bath you can use.

We have water in the button to turn the jets on so now they won't work. How do we get the water out?


The button is likely an "air switch" which uses a push button to send a puff of air down a tube to activate the switch at the other end. Since 99.9% of jetted tub makers no longer can use an electrical switch mounted at the surface of the tub, due to the possibility of contact with water (shock hazard).

The best way to clear the tube of any water is to remove the access panel (if you have one) on the tub, otherwise, you'll have to gain access from an adjoining room via a wall, etc. You can try to suction the wate from the tube, if you can remove the push button from the tub. I would try using a turkey baster or eye dropper to extract the water from the tube, but as I stated, the best way is to gain access to the inside of the tub components and remove the switch tube that way. It is possible that the push bulb switch has become disconnected from the actual switch mechanism and you'll need to reattach it anyway.

Check your owners manual to see where the switch is located, in case you need to get at the controls via cutting through an adjoining wall. This is why the manufacturer's all say these types of tubs should always be installed to allow access to the inside components for servicing, in case repairs are needed. Just an FYI, it is easier to repair and replace a small piece of drywall 16" by 16" than to have to repair tile work, etc. Of course, it all depends on what you're good at!

You might also want to contact Kohler to talk with one of their customer service people and see what they recommend you try. 1-800-456-4537

Hope you find this helpful and best regards!

Cold air coming from jets in a large garden tub indoors


jets pull outside air in thru the water jet in a natural Venturi action. If you are referring to the air bubbles in a bathtub then, yes there are air blowers that have heaters inside them to warm the air before if goes into the tub.

Water returns to tub between washes


It may not be a inlet valve at all possibly. First, does the water seem to be clean? You could possibly have a back flow situation coming from your plumbing. There are check valves between the drain line and the pump that may have come loose. This valve could possibly be letting water back flow into the unit over time. Just something to check out while your under there. If you do find it is your inlet valve, you should be able to remove and install by just removing the front kick plate. Turn the water off to the unit, and remove the water line running to the inlet valve. Most of the time, the valve is held in place by 1 or 2 screws. These are usually 1/4" or 5/16" sizes. You can then remove the inlet valve, un-hook the wires, then replace.
