Trim Kits for whirlpool tub


I have a Kohler tub that was installed in my condo in 1984. It's a iron cast whirlpool tub that is in great condition. However, the trim kit which was customized for the tub is tarnished and I want a new one. I have pictures and have called Kohler but they can't help me because it is not their trim kit. The jets are screw into the holes in the tub. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

You sure it's the tub that's Kohler, and not just the drain assembly?

Trim Kits for whirlpool tub


I am positive that I have a Kohler tub. I sent pictures to Kohler and they told me that it was definitely their tub but it had been outfitted with different jets. I cannot send a picture on this board but the current jets screw into the jets. Thanks for your input and if you have any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated.

Trim Kits for whirlpool tub


Hi,

Did you have any luck finding the trim kit? I am looking for something very similar. I can't determine what brand my tub is (was installed by builder in 1988) however it has similar screw-in jet coversi, suction cover, intake cover that I need to replace as well. Mine are are evidently plastic with gold tone plating that has corroded.

Thanks,

David
