Question about Whirlpool 5"x36" White Bathroom Drop-in Bathtub Spa Jet

1 Answer

My jacuzzi bathtub plastics pipes underneath are leaking due to being chewed by rats. So if i fill up the tub to the jacuzzi line holes, water leakes through the chewed pipes on to the wood floor underneath. The tub is encased in tile with NO access. Is there a way to plug the jacuzzi line holes so I can use it as just a regular tub?? I dont want to break out the tile right now and pull the tub out to fix the chewed pipes. Thanks, Paul

No there is no solutions for plugging off the jets so the water doesn't go in them. you will have to pull the tub and repair the lines. no access panel just means you have to dig in!

I have a jacuzzi whirlpool tub in my home that has started to leak at the three button control panel. Flooded out the bathroom so I cut a hole in the tile surround and when the pump is running it leak


First thing you need to do is remove some skirting so you can actually see where the water is coming from.
The 3 position control panel would only leak if the water was above it or covering it if it is located in the wall of the tub. That solution would only require the bather to NOT fill the tub quite so full.
IF however the water is coming from another location then that will be noticeable when you are checking for the water leak.

Replacing jet


When you installed the new jet, did you install a new gasket on the wall fitting or use 100% RTF type silicone?
In order to seal a wall fitting that is cracked an leaking, the replacement must have either the gasket or silicone to seal the wall fitting against the wall of the tub or it will leak when filled with water.

Leaking jacuzzi jet


The workings of a bath jet...From the inside of the Bath there is a wall fitting that threads from the inside of the tub into the jet body located on the outside wall of the tub.
If the jet is leaking at this point behind the tub then you should take the wall fitting out of the tub and put a small bead of 100% RTV silicone around the flange of the wall fitting and reinstall it.
If however, the leak is from the PVC piping going into the jet then you will need to replace the jet.

Sound like your pump may have a leak into the electric motor part of it through the shaft seal.
Or it could just have junk stopping up the lines or the pumps impeller. Hair often finds it's way into these things and screws them up!
If it's leaking there will be some water showing below the pump unit.....

The bath heater you have is not designed to HEAT water - they only Maintain what you start with.
You need to start the bathtub with the hot water you want. It will only heat about 1-2 degrees an hour.

Black spider like material that may come from jaccuzi


Is it greasy, oily spider web type junk? Coming through the pipes, new construction or new tub? Could be from the pump, not that it is leaking oil but it has oil in it from the manufacture of it. I would call the jacuzzi people and tell them what you have and that your kids play in the tub and drink the stuff, ought to get them to move on that one. Ask them if they know what it is and what to do about it? Hope this helps.

Leaking water from bottom


Hello there:
If the washer leaks all the time, check these: Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate. Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician. Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it. Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub-

Bath tub leaks


Well if its not from drain then it could be from one of the supply valve (hot/cold) it is also possible that its leaking from the overflow drain. this gets overlooked sometimes because of its location. One thinks that water has to be filled that high but one might be surprised how much water gets there when taking a shower or splashing in the tub. There should be an access panel to check the valves and overflow gasket. If not remove the handles and echuns to see if you can see anything.
