(Donna in Texas)WROTE:
We have one of those Jacuzzi bath tubs that are made out of something
like fiberglass, I guess. It's that plastic-looking stuff.
Anyway, the bottom surface has a bit of dirty-looking residue, and I
really haven't had luck getting it out. Have tried things like Bon-Ami
and other non-scratching powders, but without much luck. I have put
water in the tub and added a bit of bleach to it and let it set, but
that didn't help. I have used Tilex. Have used general bathroom
cleaners. This tub isn't really used very much, and we always clean it
after every use. (It's just my husband and I.)
Another thing is about the Jacuzzi part of the tub. One time when we
hadn't used it in a while we turned the jets on, and this dark looking
stuff came out. It looked somewhat like small pieces of very soggy grey
cardboard. I've wondered if it is some sort of mold. Anyway, I filled
the tub and poured a lot of bleach in and let that run through the jets
and we could use the Jacuzzi for a while. But then in a relatively short
time it happened again. We have lived in this house 12 years, and this
only began in the last 2 years.
Any ideas about these two problems?
response: On TV series How Clean Is Your House a couple had the same
problem as you do but can't remember what they used to clean the jacuzzi
BUT do remember they also had the problem with that grayish looking
stuff coming out of the jets when turned on.
The ladies took swab samples and sent it to the lab, the results were
toxic bacteria,molds that aren't to be messed with, it even gave me
I would hire pros PRONTO and find out if it's even safe to use this tub
or let them use commercial cleaners and also get to the source what's
causing this problem
One of the bacteria identified that came back from the lab was the one
that causes that flesh eating disease.
