How can I unclog plumbing in whirlpool tub used to clean dogs?

Inherited a jetted tub with house purchase. Motor seems to work, but no air out of jets. My contractor found that if all jets but one turned off, air will eventually start coming and then other jets can be turned on. Yesterday we were told by neighbor that previous owners used to give their dogs whirlpool baths in the tub, which caused the plumbing to clog up. They were unable to clean the fur out. Is there any practical way to unclog the pipes, or is the only option to replace the tub? Or is the problem more likely in the motor? (I don't want to make a decision only based on hearsay.

How can I unclog plumbing in whirlpool tub used to clean dogs?


Depending on how mechanically inclined you are, take apart the tub and clean everything out. No easy task, I know, but who want old dog hair floating around? That will be your best bet.

How to Change White Water Whirlpool Tub Jet Hardware


First step is to remove the old hardware so you have something to compare it to. THere are two types/sizes of tub faucets on the market for deck mounted applications. If yours is mounted on the tub deck then it is a deck mounted application. The faucet spread (distance between the threaded nipples on the bottom of the faucet) is going to be something close to 8" or it will be of variable distance. If the two handles and the spout are connected via hose then they are of variable length. Bring the old faucet into the hardware store and compare it so you know you are getting the correct one. It is not hard but also not fun to have to adjust the holes in the tub deck to accommodate a different size. AS for the suction.....I am assuming that you are referring to the inlet part o the pumping system and all of the equipment behind the tub. I always recommend that you use parts from the same manufacturer. It is extremely helpful to call them with all of the numbers you have to get a list of acceptable replacement parts. Hope this helps.

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...

How to Change White Water Whirlpool Tub Jet Hardware


I recommend that you consider spray painting the gold hardware with brushed nickel rusteoleum paint. IF you decide to go this route you must lightly abrade the gold surface with emery cloth then prime with rusteoleum primer, let that dry and the final coat will be the brushed nickel. I have done this and it turned out excellent. I get compliments on it. Regarding your other issues, you will be happiest with white water parts. That being said, it is likely that locally procured parts might fit. I would get one set of parts and try them. You will likely find the model number etc. on a plate in the mechanical compartment of the spa.

We lost water flow to our bath tub faucet and associated shower head recently. I took off the shower head to confirm that the filter wasn't blocking flow there. We then had a plumbing company come out and take a look and they believed the issue to be with our Delta water mixer cartridge as there was a build up of sediment on the intakes and they could not clean it enough. I was able to track down a replacement cartridge but still nothing coming through. I then returned that in case the new cartridge was faulty. Still nothing. I turned the water back off, took out the cartridge completely and turned the water back on. Water comes gushing out of there into the bathtub so there is 100% no problem with water getting to the bathtub. If in theory the cartridge is working then after the handle is turned on it should then be pushing the water into the opening that goes into the copper pipe going to the faucet and shower head. These are new copper pipes which were put in within the last two years so it is impossible for there to be any kind of buildup on the pipe (sediment would not have been able to pass through Delta cartridge anyway). Water is not leaking as I can see the plumbing in the closet behind the tub. Drywall had been ripped out when plumbing work was done two years ago and not replaced. If the pressure was causing the water to get displaced anywhere else I would see it back there, but it is dry as a bone. Is it possible that all three cartridges (original plus two replacements) are all faulty? I have proven that water is getting to the point where the cartridge is installed but not getting beyond the cartridge. Is there something else I am missing? Installation of cartridge is cut and dry. It will only go in one way. I don't even have the whole assembly on while testing so I can leave the adjustment screw off and just using Vice-Grip to allow me to turn handle the whole way. Help !!!!!!!!!!


I'm thinking that the cartridge may not be turning with the handle. After attempting to turn the faucet on a few times, see if the teeth on it are worn.
