Question about Kohler Devonshire 5ft Drop-In Bubble Massage Bath with Heater - K-1357-G

1 Answer

The water jet pump wont turn off or sometimes turns on by itself

While in the bath, everything seemed to be working fine until I needed to turn off the jets. They turned off but started up again on their own shortly after. After a couple instances of that, I can no longer turn the pump off with the button. I have to disconnect power at the breaker to shut off the pump. The tub is made by Kohler. I think it is probably a bad pump switch but I dont see an easy way to remove it to check/ and or replace the switch. Any suggestions on how to remove the pump switch, and do you agree that this might be the problem?

You need to have the flow switch looked at. The low flow of the water to the lavs and the kitchen sink, they all have as small demand next to t bath or shower,

Water heater not working after turning up heat


Did you turn the breaker completely off, then back on? When a breaker trips it is in a middle position, and nust be turned off to reset it, then it can be turned back on.

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.

I have hot water coming out of house taps but not from out of the shower, we do not have a bath tub. there seems to be no obvious leaks. HELP! what can i do i have 4 stinky kids that badly need a shower


The tap fitting on the shower may have failed. Some of the modern fittings have a more complicated internal mechanism than the traditional taps and can fail rendering the tap inoperable. Turn off the water at the mains. First take off the tap handle and then with a spanner carefully unwind the tap spindle. Be very carefull not to use excessive force in case you damage the pipework behind. If it does not come ralatively easily leave it for someone else. When you have this out have someone crack the main valve and you should have hot water coming out. If the fitting itself is the problem you may be able to take the spindle and washer out of a standard brass garden tap and use it as a temporary fix untill you get a propper replacement. Just another thought, you may have an isolation valve on the hot water line to the bathroom. Could a kid have turned it off?

Parkray Cumbria efficiency problem


Some circulation pumps have a 3 phase mixing valve (cold,warm,hot) to regulate the water pressure in the building; no way to know unless you trace the plumbing. Basically, the hot water temperature could be lost because the circ-pump is cooling it with the cold water supplied to it. This is used to balance the pressure (aka Pressure Balancing Circ-Pump), so heater is really working overtime to heat the water. If the pump has two in and one out that's more than likely your problem; but you should consult a "old-school" plumber in your area.
