Inline heaters for whirlpool bathtubs will not and cannot maintain any comfortable water temperature. Their sole function is to slow the time it takes for the water to cool off. The myth of their capabilities has long been a misleading sales propaganda joke in the industry.

Not all manufacturers put their model numbers on their tubs. Those that do will almost always post it on a label in the area of the tub where the back usually rests in the region of the motor but not on the motor itself.

I believe your quarter size cap is an air control for you jet. It controls the amount of air coming out the jet when the tub is full of water and the motor is on. You should see the difference in swirling water turning it from right to left or the other way around. If yours has a leak then I certainly hope you find the Model number. Good luck.

How to clean a whirlpool bath tub


There are three main things to tackle when cleaning a hot tub or whirlpool bath. Those things are:

1. Bacteria
2. Grease
3. Grime and dirt

To address all three of these issues you'll likely need separate products. There are liquid versions of the degreaser and cleaner, and there are tablet versions for sanitizing.

Simply fill up the whirlpool bath with warm water, put the cleaning liquid in the cleaning outlet (or if you don't have this, just pour it into the bath). Put the tablet in the bath and then just run it.

This should do the job.

Need reviews on Eljer Whirlpool Triangle Tubs. Eljer a Good Tub to Buy?


Eljer is owned by Jacuzzi Whirlpool. Very nice tub. Eljer is one of the bigger Bathtub Mfg out there.
Not sure why he has not heard of them. Lowes is probably the biggest seller of that brand.

What products to us in my jet bath


Bubble bath is definitely out of the question. Provide any of the products that you are using do not have a detergent base or bubbles so to speak, you can use them. Depending on how many times a week you use it you might want to get a cleaner that they use on hot tubs from you local pool distributer. I hope this helps you.

Bath Specs Comparison


Generally, the size of the bathing area in the bathroom will determine whether a 5-foot, 6-foot or corner bath is selected. If space is not an issue then other factors can be considered. Most people compare the features, performance, style, comfort and price of the various baths being evaluated.
