How to Change White Water Whirlpool Tub Jet Hardware

I have a White Water Whirlpools tub with brass hardware and suction, and they need to be changed. Do I have to use their hardware, or can I use replacement hardware from a local Home Depot, Lowe's, etc? I'm remodeling and I need to change the jet hardwares from GOLD to brushed nickel...but I don't know the model number and so I can only provide photos of the actual tub. Who can help me FIND the parts and EXPLAIN how to do it??????? Diem

I recommend that you consider spray painting the gold hardware with brushed nickel rusteoleum paint. IF you decide to go this route you must lightly abrade the gold surface with emery cloth then prime with rusteoleum primer, let that dry and the final coat will be the brushed nickel. I have done this and it turned out excellent. I get compliments on it.

Regarding your other issues, you will be happiest with white water parts. That being said, it is likely that locally procured parts might fit. I would get one set of parts and try them.

You will likely find the model number etc. on a plate in the mechanical compartment of the spa.

How do I fix a jet that isn't hardly pumping on my Aqualux jet tub? The other 8 jets work but no more bubbles. Is it the switch? Is that one jet clogged? Do I need a new pump? How do I get the jet out


hello Tami!
That particular jet is probably clogged.
You can find special cleaners NON ABRASIVE at your local hardware stores.
Be sure to tell them what cleaners you are looking for to make sure it is a non-abrasive type.
Or call in for service. Here is a link that may be helpful to you.
Best of Luck,

I have a jacuzzi tub in my master bath, and it has started surging through the jets in about an 8 second interval. Also I have started noticing a little bit of water leaking from under the side of the tub....


Surging is caused when the pump doesn't have enough water to push to the jets. this is usually a problem caused by air being drawn into the suction of the pump.
take a look at the jet(s) facing the suction cover.
I have seen cases where the water with the air mixed in causing bubbles gets sucked into the suction of the tub and causes the surging because the pump is pulling in too much air.
try rotating the nozzle of the jet facing the suction away from it. point it another way. turn the air control knob closed and see if that is the problem.
the only other issue that could cause this 'surging' problem is a leak in the suction line and could be the source of the water you see under the tub.

I need the manual of how to install the bath for the Comet 10 Jet Whirlpool 1500 x 1000 Bath. The Installer is having problem in getting the pump in the right position to work.


i don't have a solution for the manual however, the pump needs to be installed such that the bottom of the suction line going into the pump is 1/2" higher than the bottom of the suction elbow (coming out of the tub) thereby providing the pump with a flooded suction. This will provide the pump enough water to start pumping to the jets.

Where can I buy just the brass trim on the jet for my whirlpool tub (aker)?


The trim for any brand whirlpool (w/p) tub must be ordered from that specific tub manufacturer. They will need to know exactly what your particular model is.

The model of your w/p tub, and serial number, is most often, but not always, located on the motor end of your unit but not on the motor itself. Access to this end of the tub, if installed to code, should get you the information you need, otherwise you are out of options'

Whirlpool tub, jets come on and won't shut off. No water in tub.


Is it a jetted tub, or a air bath tub with holes or jets in the floor? If it has holes or jets in the floor, the control box is bad and needs replaced. If it is a jetted tub, there may be a water level sensor, if so the sensor may be bad causing the tub to turn on.

How to Change White Water Whirlpool Tub Jet Hardware


First step is to remove the old hardware so you have something to compare it to. THere are two types/sizes of tub faucets on the market for deck mounted applications. If yours is mounted on the tub deck then it is a deck mounted application.

The faucet spread (distance between the threaded nipples on the bottom of the faucet) is going to be something close to 8" or it will be of variable distance. If the two handles and the spout are connected via hose then they are of variable length.

Bring the old faucet into the hardware store and compare it so you know you are getting the correct one. It is not hard but also not fun to have to adjust the holes in the tub deck to accommodate a different size.

AS for the suction.....I am assuming that you are referring to the inlet part o the pumping system and all of the equipment behind the tub. I always recommend that you use parts from the same manufacturer. It is extremely helpful to call them with all of the numbers you have to get a list of acceptable replacement parts.

Hope this helps.
