Question about American Standard Evolution Oval Comfort Jet Whirlpool Bath Tub in White

1 Answer

American standard jet bath tub black particles coming out of jets

I don"t know how long this tub sat before we purchased it used. We fill the tub, push the button and sometimes the pump just clicks but then sometimes it kicks on for anywhere from 1 second to about 10 seconds then kicks off. When it does run for a few seconds some black particles come out of jets. What could the issue be?

    But we can't use the tubbecause the pump won't stay on. Like I said we bought it used and I would love to run a cleaning solution through it if I could get the pump to stay on. Do you think I need to disassemble the pump and clean that out first?

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.

We have gunk coming from the jets when powered on - What's the best way to clean this tub so we can actually use the jets?


You need to use them on a regular basis. Put as little water in the tub as you can get away with and then add some bleach. Run the bath jets for 15 minutes to clean and sterilise it. Empty the bath and fill it again with plain water. to rinse it.

I want to clean the jets in my tub they look mouldy


Cleaning your Tub
There are several options for cleaning the piping on a jetted bathtub.
The reason you have a residue on the bathtub surface when you are done bathing is because there is bacteria built up in the plumbing of the jetted tub. In order to remove that and reduce the amount of "yucky stuff" coming into the tub when using it, we recommend a regular usage of a jet cleaning product about once every couple of months
Here is a link at the bottom to the cleaning products I can find right now. There may be others out there that I am not aware of but I do know these products work well in all jetted bathtubs.

Cloudy water


Always clean you jet tub as directed by the manual. If you don't have one, than fill tub above the jets, add liquid dishwasher gel (not tabs) with bleach and run through the jets for 20 minutes. Drain, fill with clean water and run two times to clean the tub and jets and then use. Be sure your metal filter is clean of hair and soap debris. This will keep your tub and jets nice and clean. Also recommend using Epsom salts and either essential oil of lavender or eucalyptus to your bath. Both essential oils have antibacterial properties. If you want it simpler, purchase Dr. Teal's lavender soak from the drug store. Happy soaking!

I have the zuma whirl pool tub. the jets go on


This is an automatic feature to dry out the pipes and prevent mold. The next time you turn on the pump after leaving these tubs for a few weeks you get lots of black **** in the water and this is what this feature prevents. Sounds like the tub is working fine :)

Are they white flakes? Sounds like you have lime deposits turning loose in the plumbing.

Was the unit purchased and installed new? Maybe the privious owner had a hard water problem.

In either case, you may have to invest in a water softener.

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.

I have an Eljer jet bathtub with a smell to the water when we bat


What you smell is algae forming in the pipes. If you have small black particles in the tub when running the jets, it is algae. Fill the tub with hot water, add 2 teaspoons of cascade dish soap and 1/2 cup bleach. run the tub for 15 minutes and drain. fill tub with cold water, run for 15 minutes and drain, tub is now ready to use. repeat as necessary.

I have an american standard air tub and cannot get the air jets to shut off.  They turn off, but come back on automatically a short time later.  How do I shut the power off?


Check the air vacuum switch and line as you may have a air vacuum leak. The button that controls the on and off to the jets is an air vacuum switch....It may have a slow air leak in the line or connections that is activating the on and off control
