if you have a captive air expansion tank its most likely bad and leaking inside. means the rubber bladder leaked internally. cheap money and easy to replace. do not even try to test the air pressure in an old one. or try to refill it. replace it. good luck

The cheapest one I've found so far was $200. You just need to search differently, try these: or

You need access from the back of the jet. What you do is cut out the old one and install a new one. I suggest that you use a marine grade, under the waterline sealer. Silicone will not work. The under the waterline sealers take several days to cure, but they work. The hoses get glued with a PVC type of sealer that you get from a hot tum place, along with the jets needed.

Go to a hot tub company, they have scale type cleaners that do this job. It does require draining a few times, but it is worth it.

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've been on board during many of these initial start-ups, there is a little red re-set switch on the motor somewhere (you'll see it), it is usually tripped, just push it back in, you'll usually hear it click when you push it in .

Remove access panel make sure pump is plugged in some electricians put a GFI outlet under tub for motor make sure GFI did not trip. Next the switch is an air switch look for the hose going to switch is connected last you may need a new air switch which is common to fail

Jet tools only remove the wall fittings from the jet body. Most bathtub jets are removed by turning them counter clockwise.

The bearings (or bushings) of the pump or pump motor have siezed, these can be replaced on some models but for the most part you will need to replace the pump and/or pump motor. and as where to get parts, i would suggest the outlet from wich you purchased the unit or another appliance outlet. Or if you feel up to the challenge, im sure you could find replacement parts on the internet: google, ebay, etc.

Most of these jets turn to close. Check if you turn the nozzle. Hope it helps

no manual. Sounds like the motor is no good. What model and brand of pump do you have?
replacement Bath Pumps

Well there are two things....You say "buzzes?" Like pump is running "humming" & not pushing water. That would be an "airlock" in the pump & it needs to be primed.
If it's "buzzing" & pump motor is not turning (Like it's froze) you might have a bad start up capacitor on the pump that needs to be replaced. Worst case scenerio entire pump needs replacement.

Depends how old your toilet is, it may be a calcium build up problem on your little inlet pipe inside your tank, but first check your water shut off valve on left side of your toilet near the wall....It may not be open all the way OR the valve has an issue...

American... | Answered on Jul 12, 2019 | 135 views

Hey, One thing is that maybe there might be some loose plastic shavings in the fill line. From the Factory? or maybe was inside the water line going to the toilet when you connected the line to toilet. Shut off the water and get some towels and something to catch the water and disconnect it from the toilet and use bowl or what ever to catch the water and slowly turn it on and see if anything comes out. Maybe if it is in the line inside the toilet it might fall out by lightly tapping on the fill line inside the toilet to help it fall out. Just a thought when you said it "Sings" that sounds like trash inside the line going to the filler tube and bowl, hey try it who knows it might work. Okay

First, carefully remove your tank lid, and place it where it won't break or fall. Look for a four-digit number located on the back of the tank, near the water level mark. This is your tank model number. If the number starts with a two, it is a one-piece toilet.

Good Luck!
