Tips For Cleaning Your Bathtub Jets GULFPORT, MS

If you have a jetted tub, you are already aware of the incredibly relaxing benefits. After a hard day of work or a stressful week, there is nothing better than soaking in your tub with the jets on. However, if you haven’t cleaned your tub’s jets in a while, you might experience some debris floating in your bath water. That might kill the relaxing vibes on your bath. Here are some tips on cleaning your bathtub jets so you can get back to enjoying your “me time.”

Step 1
Start by wiping any hair or other debris from the basin or rim and fill the tub with hot water until it reaches a couple of inches above the jets. Now, choose your cleaning agent. A few cleaners that are effective on buildup are vinegar, bleach, or dishwashing detergent. Always check the manufacturer's instructions before choosing a cleaning agent. Many don’t approve of bleach because it can dry out the gaskets over time.

Step 2
Next, you want to check with the manufacturer on whether or not to close the air-induction valves. Closing these valves forces the water to circulate through only the internal plumbing, which results in a deeper clean. However, some manufacturers specifically request you not close the air-induction valves. Open or closed, run the jets on high for 10-15 minutes or until you no longer see debris running into the water.

Step 3
Drain the water and repeat step 2. Then drain the water again.

Step 4
Now it’s time to get your hands dirty. Sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda into the tub and allow it to sit for several minutes. Use a damp cloth to scrub away the grime. Be aware that some jetted tubs are made of acrylic and can be scratched if handled too roughly. With that being said, scrub gently when cleaning your tub.

Step 5
Lastly, take a toothbrush that you use for cleaning, and gently scrub the nozzles of the jets and the trim around the jets. Remember to also clean the air-intake cover by unscrewing it and giving it a thorough clean and screwing it back into its original position. Next, rinse your tub out with warm water.

Step 6
Enjoy a soak in your newly cleaned tub! You worked hard and you deserve it.
