replacing jets on old "jacuzzi" type tubs

Posted by homebound (My Page) on

How difficult is it to find parts and replace old, tarnished jets in the older "jacuzzi" style tubs (circa 1990, for example)?

I am occasionally asked if I can replace them, change the color, etc, but I tend to want nothing to do with them since I don't want to "own" a larger problem. Thoughts? Thanks much.

I have a hard time NOT finding parts. Google, eBay, etc. has never let me down.

I don't think a new part in an old device ensures that it would become a "problem." As long as the replacement part isn't from overseas, I don't think there should be an issue, IMO.

If you really can't find the parts, and you can find almost ANYTHING online, you might be able to get them restored/sandblasted/refinished, but it wouldn't be cheap.

Even if it's chrome/plastic, that can be done - and replated.
