“Q: How do I clean my whirlpool system on my tub?”
Answer: Cleaning your whirlpool system should become part of your bathing routine. Fill the tub so that the water covers all of the jets. Turn on the motor and add ¼ to ½ cup of dishwasher detergent (crystal type works best) or household bleach to the water. Run the motor for 10-15 minutes. Turn off the motor and drain the water from the tub. Once all of the water is drained from the tub, you can run the motor again for 30-45 seconds to expel excess water from the whirlpool system. It may require more than one cleaning if the system has not been cleaned regularly.
“Q: Why should I not use certain soaps, oils and bath detergent in a whirlpool tub?”
Answer: Bubble bath type of products leave oily film on the inside of the whirlpool tubing. This oily film in a dark, moist, and relatively warm area is an ideal feeding ground for mold. If you were to accidentally use bubble bath type products, we strongly recommend you clean your tub as described above.
