Bubbles from a pool jet. Sign of trouble?

I'm fairly new to the pool ownership game, have had a small inground for about seven months now. I've noticed there's one jet which ejects a constant, though light, stream of air bubbles. It's not a lot of bubbles really, but I was wondering if this is a sign of some problem in the plumbing? Is it drawing in air somewhere?

Air at the returns usually means a suction leak. Also if you have solar there can sometimes be air at the returns due to water returning out of the solar faster than it feeds the solar causing the vacuum relief valve to open (usually cleaning the filter fixes this problem)
