Hello,

Sometime ago, one of my fellow Experts, Rick Mather, helped you with your Home Improvement question on JustAnswer®.

The foot valve was not the problem. The problem existed until 2nd contractor
found the Fluidmaster fill valve had faulty gasket that allowed air to get
in ahead of water causing air pockets in Bath Tub. Works great now.
