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

I have an Eljer jet bathtub. Problem is I do not think the hoses in the jets drain well and the water has a smell when we take a bath. I have tried running just hot water with soap and some bleach to kill germs but the smell remains.

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.

There should be a control box on or near the pump motor. Look for a small hose connection on the control and attach hose there.
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 need to know how to clean the jets in our eljer spa tub


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 to the cleaning products I can find right now. There may be other out there that I am not aware of but I do know these products work well in all jetted bathtubs.

Eljer jetted tub on and off switch will not work


It may seem like a dumb answer but check the ground fault outlet or breaker. Then make sure there is enough water in the tub. It should be a few inches over the jets.
