Duraflo VIP 4 Whirlpool Jet Assembly


Duraflo Jet Assembly examplePre-Configured VIP 4 Jet Assemblies

Jet Assemblies can be ordered in either by ordering a pre-configured Jet Assembly (see Pre-Configured Jet Assemblies below), or by ordering individual component parts. In either case, you must make certain decisions about choices of Jet Body sizes, Jet Wall Fitting length, and Facecap material/color/style options - as shown below:

Your choice of pre-configured or custom configured Jet Assembly requires choices of each of the three component options (Jet Body, Jet Wall Fitting, and Face Caps), which depends on the pump and water hose used in your system, and and thickness of the bath tub you are adding the whirlpool kit. Please refer to the information below to help guide your choice of kits or components.

Note that for VIP 4 Jet Assemblies, they can utilize either VIP 4 or VIP 3 facecaps.

How to order the right Jet:

Each jet part number begins with JA4. The next two digits are the color code for the finish (Bone, Chrome ABS, etc). The last digit is the code for the length and diameter. Each of the possible values is listed below.

If you do not order from the pre-configured kits shown above, you can custom configure your own Jet Assembly by ordering from each group below:


VIP 4 Jet Bodies

  • Two sizes available - 3/4" or 1" bodies - in either white or clear colors. Choose which based on your water hose diameter.

Jet Bodies are positioned on the tub, and installed by drilling a 1-1/2" hole through the tub wall for each Jet Body employed in your whirlpool system. Water is supplied from the pump via hoses (either 3/4" or 1" diameter depending on your pump and system requirements).


VIP 4 Jet Wall Fitting

Jet Wall Fitting Choose from Short (1" depth), Medium (1-1/2" depth), or Long (2-3/4" depth) wall fittings, depending upon the thickness of your whirlpool.
