No they do not here is a simple way to clean the jets and the piping.
Regular Jet Cleaning
To clean the entire whirlpool system and tub exterior, follow this process every month or more frequently if needed. Don't let dirt and grime build up or you'll have more scrubbing to do to get the tub clean.
Fill the tub with hot water, approximately an inch above the highest jet.
Make sure the water temperature reaches at least 140? F (60? C).
Add 1/2 cup of laundry detergent or the amount used to clean 1 load of laundry as recommended by the detergent manufacturer.
Run the jets for 15 minutes.
Drain the tub and refill with clean lukewarm water.
Run the jets for another 15 minutes.
Drain the bathtub.
Dry the tub completely by wiping it down with a clean towel.
most hot tubs have two motors. one is a circulation pump to move water when the heater starts and the other comes on when the jets are being used. from the sounds of it, the one pump isnt running properly
Log in to this link.www.wikihow.com. It will give details . you can use dishwasher detergent works well for me. fill the tub with hot water ,several inches above the jets, run for ten minutes or so , drain refill with fresh water run for ten minutes to flush system . drain again finished.
First of all, after each use, refill the tub with warm water and run the jets for about 10 minutes to clear out any excess debris etc.
To eliminate the smell/mildew/mold. : -Fill the tub to above the jet level with HOT (over 140deg.) water -Add two tablespoons of low sudsing dishwasher detergent and five cups of distilled white vinegar -Run the jets for 20 minutes -Drain the tub and use a tooth brush or any small brush to gently clean inside and around all of the jets and nozzles, remove all foreign material you can from the areas inside (disassemble the outter rings to do so) and around the outlets. Be as thorough as possible. -Rinse and refill the tub with CLEAN COLD water and run the jets for another 20 minutes. -Drain the water and the smell and mildew should be eliminated.
To prevent future mildew build up/odors once a month fill the tub with HOT water (again) and four to five cups of vinegar (no detergent) and run the jets for 20 minutes. Drain and fill with clean cold water running jets another 20 minutes. If the tub is used very often you can increase the scheduled flushing of the system to every two to three weeks. The mildew/mold flourishes in the warm wet areas inside the jet tubing and nozzles. Diligent maitenance is the best way to make sure you're not bathing with any unwanted guests in your bathwater!
Ice buckets don't normally drain into the hot tub water. They should drain externally. The drain pipe will go through the cabinet and exit the bottom close to the floor.... or at least that's how all the ice buckets I've encountered drain.
The Fantasy has a drain located in the toekick of the spa. You have to first remove the drain cap, attach a hose if you wish, spin the outer black ring counter clockwise to start the water flow, then pull the outer ring out away from the tub to increase the drain to full flow. I understand that a screw driver is often needed to pull the outer ring out to achieve full flow. Therefore, I suggest another method. Take a garden hose and place it in front of the jet while the spa jets are on. This will force water flow thru the hose and prime the hose. Once you see water running from the other end of the hose, drop the hose in front of the spa jet into the footwell and as long as the loose end is lower than the end in the footwell, a siphon will drain the spa as fast as the spa drain will. Remember to turn off electric to the spa once you have established a siphon. You may have to bucket the last bit of water in the footwell. Goodluck.
This is normal for jets on hot tubs/whirlpools for the jets to shut off after 20 minutes. This is a safety feature to prevent overheating of the water. When jets are running, the hot tubs are constantly heating and can elevate to dangerously high temperatures excess of 110 degrees causing scalds that you would not even know are happening. Your body temperature acclimates to the climbing temps and you dont realize it is that hot. It also helps prevent you from falling asleep and not paying attention to the temps in the tubs. Sorry, but I think you are going to have to restart the jets after each cycle. It is a safety feature that can't be bypassed or circumvented. Good luck and happy tubbing
What you smell is algae forming in the pipes. If you have small black particles in the tub when running the jets, it is algae. Fill the tub with hot water, add 2 teaspoons of cascade dish soap and 1/2 cup bleach. run the tub for 15 minutes and drain. fill tub with cold water, run for 15 minutes and drain, tub is now ready to use. repeat as necessary.
