Jacuzzi has Debris coming out of it.


Every time I turn on my Jacuzzi, I have random dark brown debris coming out of it. I read online that I can use different Jet tub cleaners. I have tried all these jet tub cleaners from dishwasher soap, Bleach, plain water, quartenary ammonium compound, etc. Nothing has worked. I must have cleaned my jet tub 25 times. If I clean every day, I can get less debris (very less) but if I stop for a month, then I get a lot of debris back again. What is wrong with my jet tub?

Here is how I clean:
Fill up with hot water, add cleaning chemical, and turn on jet tub. Run for 15 minutes.

Bin there, the new ones use air for bubbles just for this reason..
When you drain the tub some dirty water is left in the pipes, soap and what ever else so now you have stuff that grows in the water in the wet pipes all good stuff I am sure..

We figured it out early and used vinegar a few times to clean it and got in the habit of draining it filling it again just up the intake and adding vinegar and running for a bit and the drain again. It gets worse if you don't use it for longer periods.
