How to clean out jacuxxi bath pipes

Hi!

When I put the jets on I get black bits in the bath. I know they need cleaning but how do get the solution into the pipes, as there is no filter and the pipes are not accessible as they are in the wall.

Any ideas, I'd really appreciate it

All Jacuzzis have a suction fitting. I do not which cleaning solution you are using but most require that you fill the tub to at least 4-6 inches above the suction fitting (some require hot water and some don't specify) then add the appropriate amount of cleaning solution and then for a specified period of time. The suction fitting is the only way to get the solution into the piping; unless you have a professional plumber do it. If you have any questions please ask.


Thx

I want to clean the jets in my tub they look mouldy


Cleaning your Tub
There are several options for cleaning the piping on a jetted bathtub.
The reason you have a residue on the bathtub surface when you are done bathing is because there is bacteria built up in the plumbing of the jetted tub. In order to remove that and reduce the amount of "yucky stuff" coming into the tub when using it, we recommend a regular usage of a jet cleaning product about once every couple of months
Here is a link at the bottom to the cleaning products I can find right now. There may be others out there that I am not aware of but I do know these products work well in all jetted bathtubs.

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.

Leaking jacuzzi jet


The workings of a bath jet...From the inside of the Bath there is a wall fitting that threads from the inside of the tub into the jet body located on the outside wall of the tub.
If the jet is leaking at this point behind the tub then you should take the wall fitting out of the tub and put a small bead of 100% RTV silicone around the flange of the wall fitting and reinstall it.
If however, the leak is from the PVC piping going into the jet then you will need to replace the jet.

Stale water odour when jets havent been used on massage type spa


There are several cleaning methods on the internet. I would contact the maker of the tub and see if they have a cleaning agent. I know that Jacuzzi and Aquatic industries have a cleaner that works rather well. I have seen one on the net that uses 2 teaspoons of powder dishwasher soap mixed with bleach. I have not tried this one so don't know how well it works. The ones from the tub companies are not cheap, but if you want something that is going to do the job, spend the money.

Spa bath which spits black bits out when put jets on - tried milton and dish washer tablet


This is due to bacteria in the water lines. this happens when the tub is not used every couple of days. The dirty bathwater dries in the water lines and festers while not being used for days (weeks) later. You should use a good cleaner through the pipes at least once a quarter or better yet once a month. This a link to an awesome product. System Flush
