jacuzzi

Our jacuzzi water jets are not working properly. It seems if we plug a couple, the other ones work better, or if we blow into the tube, it also works better. After plugging, it will blurp a couple of times like it is trying to work. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Sounds like something is stopped up. What does the owner's manual say about cleaning periodically? Or, pressure to the pool is impeded by a leak somewhere or a partially closed valve.

Talking Airlock??

Your symtom sounds like an airlock inside the pump or inside plumbing. Did you drain & fill the tub lately??
Try the following.

Look closely around pump housing and filter housing. There must be a vent plug.
-Let your motor run about 30 seconds
-Stop motor and crack open the vent plug(s) until you hear hissing
-Close the plugs as soon as water starts coming out
-Turn on the motor again and check the jets
-If some of them are still sluggish, repeat above steps.

If above steps don't do any good, then you may conclude that you have a blockage in your plumbing somewhere.
Check the filters and make sure they're in good shape.
Also, check your push-pull valves to make sure all of them are fully open.
