Pour some chlorine bleach , not alot.in and let it circulate. You may want to clean the filter first.You are smelling a real dirty filter.

Odors coming from jacuzzi bathtube we hardly ever use it .but there an oder coming from it


The water in the trap could be evaporating over time and allowing sewer gas to enter the tub causing the smell. Try using some RV antifreeze in the drain. The antifreeze won't evaporate. Hope this helps.

How do I get bad smell and crud out of jacuzzi jets


If you are experiencing a "smell" coming out of the water when you use the tub then you should use one of the products that are made for cleaning jetted tubs pipes.
Here is a link to a site that carries those items. These will get rid of the nasty smell and flecks of bacteria when you use the tub too.

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

Foul water smell coming from washer after using machine.


Check the hoses to make sure there are no leaks or standing water behind. Try running a cycle or two of vinegar water and baking soda water to kill any mildew that might be in the tub.
New washers often give off an odor described as a burning match or electrical smell. This is normal and is caused by the "wearing in" of clutch shoes and the heating of new paint on the motor windings.
Older washer odors are usually caused by leaving the washer lid closed when not in use. This does not allow air to circulate and dry out the moisture remaining in tub area. The air and moisture mixture becomes stagnant and creates an odor. When washer is not in use, leaving the lid up/open for air circulation will help prevent odor.


To get rid of odors inside of washer follow the steps listed below:
  1. Fill the washer with hot water; set at regular speed & longest time.
  2. Add 3/4 cup of Calgon Clothes Detergent. (Baking soda can be substituted) .
  3. Allow washer to complete entire wash and rinse cycle.
  4. If odor lingers, repeat entire process.
