Jacuzzi jets smell like rotten eggs when turned on.

Every time I get in my tub and turn on the jacuzzi, it smells like rotten eggs. It's not the water because when I turn on the faucet, I don't smell anything. I think it's old water from previous use that's causing that smell. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Any time you get a strong smell of rotten eggs it is due to a high concentration of sulfer in the water. Are you on well water? I would suggest using a cleaner like http://www.sani-bath.com/ to clean out your system.

Top load washer smells like rotten eggs when water is draining into tub


As someone who has had a deep well drilled and found water, but water contaminated with iron and sulfur, I can tell you first hand about the rotten egg smell. The water softener will remove the iron that can turn clothes orange, but doesn't do anything to remove the rotten egg odor. You will need a charcoal (carbon) water filter to eliminate the sulfur smell.

I have a jacuzzi corner tub. The control panel


I would expect there is a Jacuzzi dealer in your town and I would guess he has parts. If you purchase parts locally, not only are you helping your neighbor but also, you will have the opportunity to pick his brain on tips to install.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com.
