Not normal for that to happen but the jet faces on the two back jets may be turned off or down.
Try turning the face of the jet clockwise and see if you get more water flow out of each jet.

American standard jet bath tub black particles coming out of jets

The problem you are experiencing is common to many jetted bathtubs.It is a result of dried bathing water in the tub. There are a couple of solutions to resolve this ongoing problem.
  1. Use your tub more frequently as the water will not have time to fester in the pipes.
  2. Use a cleaning solution made for cleaning the pipes on jetted bathtubs once every three months.

You find Cleaning and Maintenance Products for jetted tubs at the following website. US Parts Center

I have a 3/4 hp Flotec 4022 pump. Prior to that I had a goulds 1 hp pump on the same 120 circuit with no issues. The Goulds pump housing started to go so I replaced it. Since replacing it with the Flotec I...

Hi Eglenni,

Here are the specs for your pump:

Thermoplastic Shallow Well Jet Pump 3/4 HP. This new revision of an "old hand" provides good pressure pumping from wells where the depth-to-water is 25' or less.

BODY CONSTRUCTION: Thermoplastic
HORSEPOWER: 3/4
MAXIMUM CAPACITY: 12 GPM
FLOW at 10' LIFT and 40 PSI: 9.7 GPM
MAX LIFT: 25'
MAXIMUM PRESSURE: 78 psi
PRESSURE SWITCH SETTING: 30/50
SUCTION PIPE SIZE: 1-1/4" NPT
DISCHARGE PIPE SIZE: 1" NPT
AMP DRAW (full load): 6.1 amps on 230v / 12.2 amps on 115v
VOLTAGE: 230v / 115v, 60 Hz
RECOMMENDED BREAKER: 15 amp on 230v / 20 amp on 115v
MAXIMUM WATER TEMPERATURE: 140 °F (60 °C)
=========================================
Note that this pump can be operated at 115 volts or 230 volts (A/C) It may have come wired for 230 volt use from the vendor.

Make sure the pump is piped correctly.


There should be a wiring diagram either on the pump or in the literature so you can check to see how the pump is wired.

MAKE SURE
you have the pump wired for 115 volt use in your case. Also make sure the wire size is #12 awg for the power wiring.
Make sure all connections are tight. If you have an amprobe (an instrument that measures electric current) you can check to see how many amps the pump is pulling when it runs.

You said your old pump was 1 HP. This Flotec pump is 3/4 horse so there could be some pump performance loss depending on the well depth and length of the piping runs.

Here's the link to the website for the pump. There are additional resources available on the website:

I wish to rewire a single phase electric motor with compositor's that is currently setup for 230 VAC to 115 VAC. The motor is a Ingersoll-Rand Air Compressor motor with the following nomenclacher. Single...

The motor itself should have a sticker which describes the wiring for 115. It is a small change involving a single wire moving from one pole to another inside the motor starter cap (the bump on the motor itself).

Hooking up a Hot tub

Everything above tells me this is 120V unit...if thats the case a single pole breaker is sufficient. Also by what you have written, a 15 amp breaker should suffice.
