Can I simply silicone jets in a tub to seal them completely, so the jets don't leak? It's for a rental unit I own, bathroom on 2nd floor. Don't want to tear out the bath tub or ceiling on Main floor.


In order to properly seal the jet in place with silicone you must remove the wall fitting from the inside of the tub. The wall fitting is threaded into the jet body from the inside of the tub.
Once the wall fitting has been removed you can put a small bead of silicone around the underside of the flange and thread it back into the jet body. Clean up the excess silicone after it squishes out with DeNatured Alcohol.
If you plan on just putting a bead of silicone around the outside edge of the jet body behind the tub, do not waste the silicone or your time as it will not solve the leak in the tub.

I have a walk-in jacuzzi-type bathroom tub. When the automatic blower comes on it sends out a mildew smell. How can I get rid of it?


First of all, after each use, refill the tub with warm water and run the jets for about 10 minutes to clear out any excess debris etc.

To eliminate the smell/mildew/mold. :
-Fill the tub to above the jet level with HOT (over 140deg.) water
-Add two tablespoons of low sudsing dishwasher detergent and five cups of distilled white vinegar
-Run the jets for 20 minutes
-Drain the tub and use a tooth brush or any small brush to gently clean inside and around all of the jets and nozzles, remove all foreign material you can from the areas inside (disassemble the outter rings to do so) and around the outlets. Be as thorough as possible.
-Rinse and refill the tub with CLEAN COLD water and run the jets for another 20 minutes.
-Drain the water and the smell and mildew should be eliminated.

To prevent future mildew build up/odors once a month fill the tub with HOT water (again) and four to five cups of vinegar (no detergent) and run the jets for 20 minutes. Drain and fill with clean cold water running jets another 20 minutes. If the tub is used very often you can increase the scheduled flushing of the system to every two to three weeks. The mildew/mold flourishes in the warm wet areas inside the jet tubing and nozzles. Diligent maitenance is the best way to make sure you're not bathing with any unwanted guests in your bathwater!

-Take care

Need to find out why 2 of the 6 jets on my acer swirl bath tub don't push water out like the other 4, and where can I find replacement jets. We bought the home recently and it was built in 2000. so...


see if the jet faces turn at all. Sometimes the jets are adjustable to allow more pressure from some jets.
turn the face of the jet and see what happens.

Purchased new home with a swirl-way avalon jetted tub dont know how to start it please help


is there an air button on the top of the tub? if so that is what you would turn the pump on/off with. give it a push and see. if you do have a button to push like that then make sure the air tubing is hooked up to the bottom of the air button and the other end is hooked to the air switch in the back of the motor.
if there is NO air button to push and just the logo on the top of the tub then you will need to fill the tub with water, get into the tub and then touch the logo. that would turn an older Swirlway tub on/off.

I BOUGHT A FORCLOSED HOME AND IT HAS A CORNER STYLE WHIRLPOOL BATH- SINCE I DONT KNOW A THING ABT THESE CREATURES I HAVE 2 QUESTIONS. I HAVE A DRIP STYLE LEAK FROM AN ITEM THAT ON THE INSIDE OF THE TUB...


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.

This is the second time...there is sand in the washing machine after a wash (and sand in the sheets)


There is no other way that sand could have come in unless through the inlet water line or sand previously lodged into the tub into the clothing. To check this out remove inlet line and check for damage in filter.If not check inside your tub for traces of sand.Remove drain hose/drain valve and clean external tub to wash away all dirt using a jet wash.
hope this helps

I discovered tiny ball bearings in my hot tub. Where could they come from? The hot tub is working fine.


The ball bearings from your spa are from a roto head jet. Typically they are from one of the larger sized jets and they make the swivel action in the roto swirl jets function smoothly. You can determine which jet is coming apart by the loose function of the center nozzle. The jet can be removed and replaced to solve this problem. Most jets screw out but when they have deteriorated a lot, you may need plyers to take the jet out in pieces.

Leaks from jets along outer wall


This is a hard fix, The jets are glued on to the back of the tub with an epoxy type material. the jets should spin on and off from the inside of the tub. You need to determine if it is the hole where the jet is that's leaking or if it is the jet assembly and tubing that is leaking. If it is the jet hole that is leaking, spin the jet off and use aquarium grade silicone (Lowes carries it)
spread this around the piece sticking thru the tub and spin the jet back on. This is a hit or miss fix. No easy fix if it is the tubes or jet assembly, full access necessary for this repair.
