When installing a new tub, I recommend never following the manufacturers istructions pertaining to measurements.

That being the tub on flat ground and measure from the ground to the bottom of the rim on the tub. Now onthe stud wall, you will nail your horizontal boards that the tub rests on at that height. Also give the tub a 1% slope towards the drain (actuallt 1/8" is plenty of difference between the end heights) Test fit the tub multiple times to ensure a correct instillation. When sure the drain end everything line up correctly, place a large box (approx. 40 lbs.) of sheet-rock joint compound on the ground dirctly below where the tub will be placed as a base for eht tub. When you set the tub in place on the wet compound, get in the tub and walk around to make sure the tub is all the way down to the ground. Finish by connecting the plumbing after a week to let the compound dry.

Hope this helps.

Do Mirolin water jet tub jets come out for cleaning ?

No they do not here is a simple way to clean the jets and the piping.

Regular Jet Cleaning

To clean the entire whirlpool system and tub exterior, follow this process every month or more frequently if needed. Don't let dirt and grime build up or you'll have more scrubbing to do to get the tub clean.
  1. Fill the tub with hot water, approximately an inch above the highest jet.
  2. Make sure the water temperature reaches at least 140? F (60? C).
  3. Add 1/2 cup of laundry detergent or the amount used to clean 1 load of laundry as recommended by the detergent manufacturer.
  4. Run the jets for 15 minutes.
  5. Drain the tub and refill with clean lukewarm water.
  6. Run the jets for another 15 minutes.
  7. Drain the bathtub.
  8. Dry the tub completely by wiping it down with a clean towel.

The jets on my aker Swirlbath are coming on by themselves in the middle of the night. What is the remedy for this problem?

Some tubs with air jets have a sensor that detects water in the piping and cycles the air pump to blow out the water in the air jets. Make sure the faucet is not dripping as the water leaking into the tub could be causing the pump cycling problem.

Hope this helps.

Daily air clean out happens in the middle of the night

With Air Tubs there is usually a setting on the control that will allow you to set the time when the purge cycle will come on or it to set it when you are done using the tub like maybe 10 mins after the control is shut off.

We have a Kohler Purist Air Bubble Massage tub... the last couple days the dial has randomly started lighting up with the green light tracking down the middle and you can hear the motor or the jets on the...

This is sounding like a relay not working on the circuit board inside the control box. You will want to have a Kohler service center send someone out to have it checked. You most likely need a new control box.

Our jacuzzi is almost regular tub and has tow metal buttons, one on the top/edge and the other near jet mouse at the middle level of bath tub. We have not used our jacuzzi for 10 months. Even we only use...

The metal button on the top of the tub is used to turn the tub on/off. the metal button you see in the middle of the tub above one of the jets is the low water sensor.
the water has to be above that metal tab, you have to be in the tub and then touch the metal button on the top of the tub to turn it on.
this system uses the electrical current from our bodies to complete the circuitry and turn it all on and off.

I have a jacuzzi corner tub. The control panel

I would expect there is a Jacuzzi dealer in your town and I would guess he has parts. If you purchase parts locally, not only are you helping your neighbor but also, you will have the opportunity to pick his brain on tips to install.

Engine revving - sounds like an airplane engine

more than likely its a clogged jet in the carb. pull the carb off and flip it upside down. take the bolt out of the bowl and pull it off. use a flat head to unscrew the jet in the tub in the middle. clean out the high idle jet on the side and replace in reverse order.

it is warped, it should be flat, but as long as it's not too bad, it should be ok for use.
