A - To remove most deposits and avoid major accumulations inside the system piping, do the following at least once every 90 days:
Step 1: Fill tub with lukewarm water to the top of the trim ring on the highest jet.
Step 2: Add 2 tablespoons of low-sudsing, automatic dishwasher detergent and run the whirlpool system for 20 minutes. For AKER's Bodywrap system, this is one complete timer cycle.
Step 3: Drain tub, refill with clean water and operate the system for 20 minutes (one time cycle on the Bodywrap system) then rinse thoroughly.
Your system should occasionally by sanitized by substituting 1/2 cup of household bleach for the dishwasher detergent in the cleaning procedure above. Make sure to rinse your unit thoroughly afterward.
For best results when caring for your AKER plumbing products:
- Never use abrasive materials or abrasive cleaners on the whirlpool trim (jets, air controls, and suction covers)
- Use extreme caution when trying any cleaner, acid or solvent on the whirlpool system trim. Refer to our WHIRLPOOL SYSTEM CARE AND CLEANING for complete details.
