Question about American Standard 2770.018w.020 Cadet Whirlpool White

1 Answer

My bath tub with jets hums and I can't find an access panel.

The tub is located on a platform and surrounded by ceramic tile. I do not see an access panel. I'm prepared to remove tile but would like to know where (front of tub by faucets or sides) to find the pump or other electrical parts to diagnose if I can repair it myself.

The pump is usually at the side/rear of the tub, opposite the drain, the faucets can be mounted anywhere, but usually over the drain. The panel could be tiled, and just grouted in, if it is not exposed, try tapping on it to see if it sounds different in spots. Who knows, it might just fall out. How about behind the back wall?? Closet? Access? There is no electrical parts in there to repair, Pretty sure it is just the motor. and a bunch of pipes glued together and stuck through the tub. Did you fill the tub with water before trying the jets? Just checking. Hope this helps.

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.

if you have a water stain on the ceiling below your tub then you have a water leak. There is no easy solution for this. You must get to the underside of the tub in order to watch the jets when the tub is full of water to isolate the leak and then have it repaired by a plumber.

The grout between tiles is just for filling the gaps. The tiles are glued to the wall, usually with "thin-set" mortar. Unless that mortar is in very poor condition it is unlikely that you would be able to remove that single tile without breaking it. The wall behind the tile might be water-resistant drywall (a poor quality situation) or it should be cement-board. I suppose it's possible that there is already a hole in the wall behind the tile, but the hole would be smaller than the tile, and assuming 4 inch (not large) tiles, this is a poor choice to gain access to the pipes. The usual access is through the wall from the other side. During initial construction, a removable access panel is sometimes provided (depending on local building codes and whims of the builder). If there is no access panel, and the other side of the wall is drywall, then cutting a generous hole, and fashioning a plywood panel (with trim around the edge to cover the gap between the drywall and the plywood) is a pretty standard and simple approach (depending on your skills). As an alternative and for more info, here's a link describing how to install a plastic snap-in access panel. Good luck! http://www.diylife.com/2008/06/23/plumbing-access-panel-installation/

I have a marble jet bath tub. is there anyway to cap the jet holes, so it is no longer a jetted bath?


Hello,
You should be able to remove the access panel and just disconnect, and cap the hose that is connected to the pump for the jets and then cap the pump nipple, where the hose connects.

This would likely be easier than trying to locate multiple caps to plug the jet holes in the tub.

I hope this helps you.

How can I attach a ceramic towel bar inside a tub surround without drilling through the surround? I was thinking about a good water proof glue. Any suggestions??


You could use a good water proof glue but that would only work for a short while. What kind of material is the surrounding made of? Ceramic towel bars are normally set in ceramic surroundings. If you really must have this towel bar you may have to cut two squares out of the surrounding and put in two ceramic tiles, that way you can put ceramic on ceramic.

How to put bath supports onto new fibre glass bath.It does not have a wooden frame, do I need to make one?


You mean a tub surround? You have no box for the tub to sit in? What were planning on using to hide the sides of the tub? Most big tubs, whirlpools, jacuzzis, etc, sit in a frame work of two by fours and plywood, the ply top supports the tub and the tile, The ply walls or tile board walls are needed for the tile, access to the motor is necessary if you don't have a panel on the tub itself. The tub is set in a finished box, all the tile work done on the top, and set in a ***** of concrete for support. This is for tubs with no sides on them, some tubs have one side finished, and they go up against the walls, and get tiled over the lip. But they get set in mud too. But no walls, just a band against the wall for support. I have seen every tub in every house we have worked on for 25 years done this way, it works. Check it out. Hope this helps. And I hope this is what you are talking about.

My tub surrounding is about a half a inch wide


You may want to try to find some thin ceramic tile beading and gluing it in place and caulking the remaining gap. Use a waterproof construction glue. This is most likely to be something you customize to fit. Often you can rent a ceramic wet saw and cut tiling to fit the need. Use proper safety gear, and be particularly careful if ripping thin pieces less you gain the nickname stubby.

My jacuzzi stopped turning on.


I would check all power to the tub. Is it plugged straight to a breaker, plugged into a GFCI, GFCI breaker in the master panel? For it to just stop altogether I would think something tripped.

How to install claw foot bath to tiled floor


Hi giacomjo,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: You have a claw foot bath to install in a tiled bathroom. How do you fix the bath to the floor so it is secure and doesn't move?

A little clear silicone caulk under each claw is my favorite method. Locate the tub in it"s final position. Set up the drain and water connections so that you can complete them without moving the tub. Lift each end in turn just a bit and aply some caulk, you may need a helper. Wipe off the excess. Then hook up.

Feel free contact me again!
