SOURCE: how to remove jet rings on jetted tub

It depends on the brand of jet and tub, if it is a gold or silver trim ring, they will generally pry off with a screwdriver, just be careful not to damage the tub when doing so. When prying, move the screwdriver around the jet an inch at a time, just like opening a can of paint. Some rings will screw on, but most just pry off.

My machine is a few years old, I don't use it very often now, how do I make sure it's clean and not harboring bacteria?


I would keep the washer lid open and the agitator and drum dry. However, you will have to, from time to time clean the machine.
Run a full cycle (tub empty of garments) with hot water and Clorox or other liquid disinfectant. Then air or towel dry the inside components. Read the manufacturer's cleaning instructions that came with your owner's / user's manual.

Cloudy water


Always clean you jet tub as directed by the manual. If you don't have one, than fill tub above the jets, add liquid dishwasher gel (not tabs) with bleach and run through the jets for 20 minutes. Drain, fill with clean water and run two times to clean the tub and jets and then use. Be sure your metal filter is clean of hair and soap debris. This will keep your tub and jets nice and clean. Also recommend using Epsom salts and either essential oil of lavender or eucalyptus to your bath. Both essential oils have antibacterial properties. If you want it simpler, purchase Dr. Teal's lavender soak from the drug store. Happy soaking!

American standard jet bath tub black particles coming out of jets


The problem you are experiencing is common to many jetted bathtubs.It is a result of dried bathing water in the tub. There are a couple of solutions to resolve this ongoing problem.
  1. Use your tub more frequently as the water will not have time to fester in the pipes.
  2. Use a cleaning solution made for cleaning the pipes on jetted bathtubs once every three months.

I have a walk-in jacuzzi-type bathroom tub. When the automatic blower comes on it sends out a mildew smell. How can I get rid of it?


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!

-Take care

Hello, I don't have a problem, but more of a 'change' in mind. I have a maax whirlpool tub but really miss soaking in a tub with bubbles, or oils, or oatmeal treatments, etc. I feel I cannot do this...


your friend is correct. Actually the oils will not hurt the system either but not sure about Oatmeal in the tub. As long as the jets were not turned on with the Oatmeal thingy going you would be just fine.

I have the ball bearings showing up in my lounger in my spa and now realize that it is probably from a spinner jet after reading several postings. I just filled the tub and put in all new chemicals. Does...

Opening extra windows


Your system is infected with virus so your system has to be disinfected from safe mode with command prompt.

1. To disinfect the virus please download the latest sdat????.exe from this site and save it C:TEMP

2. Now restart the System and press F8 key
3. Select Safe mode with Command Prompt
4. Then change directory to C:TEMP
5. There type the filename and give the parameters as follows:

C:TEMP>sdat5372.exe /e

After few seconds in that directory you will find some files that extracted from the dat file.

6. Give commands as follows:

C:Temp>SCAN /all /adl /clean /report Report.log

This will clean all the virus in the system.

Hope this will helps you..

If this works please comment me.....

I have a Rival crock pot model # 5070 it has a lot of super fical cracks in the surface. Is this safe? Thank You Susan DuShane


If they are just in the ceramic liner and not really through it you should be ok, they are caused by temprature fluctuations, maybe youve added vegies from the fridge part way through to an already hot dish...
I still use mine all the time with no problems, i mix a little bleach in a sink of hot water and rinse it well to really disinfect it after using it to be sure its health inspector clean
