SOURCE: Black come out the jets when first operating them

Didn't fully drain at the end of last year, that gunk was mold, rust and gunk that's been sitting in the piping since last year. Not really a problem just remember to take a closer look at the plumbing on your tub next year and get all of the possible places that water may hold drained completely.

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: Jetted bath tub has stopped working. Motor hums

I had this same problem on my tub, which uses a GE motor. I looked at the motor, and on one end (the end opposite where the water comes out) there is a hole in the middle. In that hole is the head of the shaft, which has a regular screw tip. Turning this turns the motor. I filled the tub, inserted a slotted regular screwdriver and turned it about 10 times clockwise, then 10 times counterclockwise. You should see the whole motor turn. Doing this loosened it up, and then it started.

Once it started, all kinds or residue came out, which was probably why it had stopped working. I hadn't used it for a while.

After getting it running I'm going to run some cleaning solution through it, and make sure I run it more often to prevent this in the future.

I'm not a professional, just a guy trying to fix his own tub. So take my advise with that grain of salt.

Air jet tub shoots out black flakes


it sounds like there is a build-up of some kind in the lines. Replacing the lines may be your simplest solution. Replacing the entire system would definitely fix the black flakes.

When we are having a bath the water is clear until we turn on the jets for the whirlpool and then black fine dirt comes out of the jets what or how can we stop this from happening and what could be causing...


This is caused by bacteria buildup in the water lines. this is caused by NOT using the tub often enough. You need a cleaner to run through the pipes and use it on a regular basis to prevent the 'black' build up in the tub.
Check this site out - they have several different cleaners that are used to prevent the problem you are having.

I have a Hotpoint Model HDA 110S-45WA. I have


If the flecks are as thin as a paint film, then they are most likely old dried-up food and garbage debri that has lodged itself in the crevices of the water jet paths. But, they usually only show when the dish washer sits for a long time unused, and then after such period, when you begin use, these pieces begin to flake off and of course show up. hey eventually stop. If it is pieces that are hard and rather thick, then it icould be shavings from the pump/grinder assembly within the dishwasher sump (pit ) area, and this is telling you that there is something lodged down there,or something is wearing loose and most likely there is some nosie associated with this (other thanthe normal running noise). Goodluck, Macgivor

I have an Eljer jet bathtub with a smell to the water when we bat


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.

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.
