Question about Kohler Home

1 Answer

I installed a Kohler whirlpool tub about 3 months ago and am now having a water discharge issue with two jets on the same side of the tub. The jets have been used 6 times or less as the tub doubles as a tub/shower surround. There seems to be water flowing out of the jets but there's no pressure to speak of. Any help would be appreciated.

    The jets in my tub do not have an adjustment, and I will check for a kink in the hose although I don't know why there would be one since it was working fine and then all of a sudden it doesn't.

    I'm not sure at this point as I'm not with the tub. I will check to see if one of these issues might be the problem however, I don't believe that I have adjusting Jets unless the adjustment is under the tub near the pump itself.

Most jets have an adjustment for the discharge rate, have you tried to adjust? Also, look at hose feeding that side to jets and make sure the line is not kinked or restricted.

Viking V300 hot tub - jets, high and low, will only run about 10 seconds, then stop, then start


This sounds to us like maybe you have an air lock in the system.
Try this:
Turn the pump on and while it is trying to operate, loosen the discharge union on the water pump until it is spraying water (do NOT unthread it very far).
Most of the time if you have an air lock this will solve the problem.

Where the filter is located


There are no filters on jetted bathtubs. There is a screen with dozens of holes located in the footwell of the tub. that is the suction cover. the water flows through that screen into the front of the pump and then out through each of the water jets.

Kohler whirlpool type tub will not pump water out of its jets or take water into the intake. Pump appears to operate fine. Water does not want to move. Suggestions?


When a bath pump turns on but does not move any water it is usually because there is an Air Lock and needs to be released.Try this.
  • Fill the tub with water
  • Turn the pump on
  • Unthread the discharge pump union until water starts to squirt out
  • when this happens you should hear a big 'swoosh'


if the bath pump starts to discharge water through the jets then you have solved the problem.

I have a 1980 kohler jacauzzi tub with 6 jets. Looking through the access cover, at the end of the tub, I can see water dripping from some of the jets. Can I fix this without tearing out the walls around...


no not really the only way to fix it right is to open up the walls. this is a common problem with these units, the best thing you can do is contact the manufacture who made it and ask them what to do.

My Kohler whirlpool started on its own with no water in it. We turned it off with the switch and it hasn't happened again. Is there a danger of it starting a fire if we are away from home and it does it...


Most Kohler tubs have a water sensor or water level sensor. Is this an air bath tub (holes in the floor)? or a jetted tub? If it is an air bath, the tub will purge after using it 15 to 30 minutes ater it is drained. If it is programable it will come on every 24 hours if it has been programmed. If it is a jetted tub, there may have been water on the sensor and caused it to start up. If it is a single on/off button the switch could have gotten water and caused it to start up, or there is a problem with the control box. It usually will not start a fire if it comes on, most of the newer pumps have run dry seals. If you leave the house for vacation or weekends, I would advise unplugging the tub or turning off the breaker.

Install bathtub without existing drain


it is generally not allowed under the water regs to discharge waste water into anything other than a drain.I would suggest you install a discharge pump, typically the saniflow type which will allow you to run the waste across the room and discharge the waste into the vanity basin drainage.Should you choose to install this be aware of the waste pipe configurations shown by the instructions

How do I install a whirlpool bathtub?


here is a link to the some installation and operating instructions.
basically you need to put a 2" x 2" runner under the lip of the tub along the three sides of the tub that touch the walls to support the lip of the tub. that pretty much covers it.
