Probably since its not a positive displacement pump. expect more pressure from the other jets though

I have a Jacuzzi brand bathtub/whirlpool 6 years old. One of my jets leaked and created a significant damage downstairs. How can I fix the jet, how can I prevent other jets from leaking? Can I just kill...

The gasket around the jet may be leaking because it is deteriorating or the flange nut on the outer side of the jet has loosened up. Check all jets for loose hardware.

Kohler Whirlpool K-1266 (Does not star

Here are some possible causes and solutions. I know some seem simple but am trying to cover all base
  1. Jets Closed, rotate Jet trm ring counterclockwise to open.
  2. Jet not installed correctly, re-install jet, check for 'O' ring damage.
  3. Jets are blocked, Check for blockage and remove.
  4. Pump is not priming, Pumps with wooden support blocks only, Pump shimmed to high, lower pump support bracket. (wooden support blocks only)
  5. Pump is air locked. Loosen fitting on pump outlet to allow any air to escape, re-tighten.
  6. Air Actuator tubing is disconnected, loose, kinked, plugged or damaged. Connect, straighten, clean or replace air actuator tubing.
  7. Air Actuator does not work, replace the air actuator
visual check to see if pump is turning when motor is is on. If not replace the the pump you may need to disconnect the the inlet/outlet to see. I hope this helps at least provide some direction. Good Luck, Jeff

I know I can take a bath without turning on the jets. However; does the bath water with soap flow back into the jets? I like bubble baths, If I leave the jets off can I use the bubble bath without having...

The soapy water will fill all of the jets, tubes and the pump assembly. Will it hurt the tub if the jets are not running? The soap film will build up in the jets, tubes and pump assembly and can possibly cause damage if the tub is run at a later date. Contact the tub manufacture and see if there is a safe bubble bath you can use.

Lasco whirlpool tub leaks. Water runs out on

Sorry, the tub will have to pulled out to find out what is leaking so it can be fixed. There is just no other way UNLESS you can open up the wall on the blind side of the tube. (but its probably and exterior wall...if the house is vinyl sided, it can be done. If brick, you'll have to pull the tub). If you just wanted to convert to a tub only, maybe Bathfitters has an insert solution...
