  • The tub that won't make bubbles for a bubble bath.

    I recently installed a Kohler "Underscore" tub with a Hansgrohe thermostatic fill valve that puts out about 10 gpm. The spout is a Toto "Aimes" Spout.

    TOTO TS626E Aimes Tub Spout

    Believe it or not, the water out of this spout has such a laminar flow, and is so smooth it makes very few bubbles even though this is a very deep tub. So the owner isn't happy. (and they spent a fair chunk of change). The owner used this tub before the spout came in, and I put a 1/2" brass nipple on so she could use it, and it made great bubbles.

    So tomorrow I'm going to look at ways to mess up the inside of that gorgeous spout so the flow is more rough. She also wants more flow. She claims now it also takes too long to fill the tub.

    Lot's of baked beans will produce enough bubbles for his bath. Problem solved.

        I hear what you're saying though Geno. Some of these new faucets with a smooth flow would create a problem for mixing with the bubble bath liquid. I have no idea what the fix would be either.

          We don't have preventative maintenance around here, we have CRISIS MANAGEMENT!

                I removed a stainless steel screen mesh from inside the spout. The mesh smoothed out the water flow a fairly amazing amount. Removing the mesh caused the water to flow more roughly and we got plenty of bubbles. Problem solved.
