    I am starting from scratch, I am building a surround for the tub and will be tiling the top of the surround....then will set tub in but Menards did not mention anything about "tile flange" nor did Eljer mention and flange kit on their website!!!! Where would I get an flange kit that will fit my tub????

    Are you starting from scratch? If so you should buy a tile flange kit that either self aheres to the tub deck or needs to be siliconed in place with wall treatment overlaping thids flange.

If it is a five foot tub, home depot usually carries them, if not any plumbing supply store will have them.

Eljer is owned by Jacuzzi Whirlpool. Very nice tub. Eljer is one of the bigger Bathtub Mfg out there.
Not sure why he has not heard of them. Lowes is probably the biggest seller of that brand.

I just installed a new whirlpool jacuzzi tub with an Eljer inline heater. The pump in the tub is shooting water out all the jets I even blew the jets out with air to make sure they were clear. The first...

if the light on the heater is not coming on when the tub is full of water and the pump is on then the heater is not working.
check the circuit breaker to make sure it is on.
the heater and the pump cannot be on the same circuit. They have to be on separate circuits.
Make sure they are on separate circuits.
Check to make sure you have the heater installed in the correct place.
there is a pressure heater that mounts anywhere after the discharge of the pump.
there is a vacuum heater that mounts in front of the pump in the suction line.
if you put on or the other in the wrong place it will never come on.

My tub surrounding is about a half a inch wide

You may want to try to find some thin ceramic tile beading and gluing it in place and caulking the remaining gap. Use a waterproof construction glue. This is most likely to be something you customize to fit. Often you can rent a ceramic wet saw and cut tiling to fit the need. Use proper safety gear, and be particularly careful if ripping thin pieces less you gain the nickname stubby.

The tub should just sit on the floor, and caulked around to seal out any water. If it as a fiberglass tub, you might want to put some grout under the bottom to help support it.

Installation of our whirlpool tub

Your sheet rock will go to the top of the lip of the tub and then your tile will overlap this lip. If it isn't done right, your grout will crack if you are tiling.

Jets not working

i have seen this in the past, a ground fault electrical outlet on the inside of a roman tub,if you have a 2 story house look for access panel on or by tub. otherwise you have to remove tile or other to access motor, you probably need a step too anyways
