Spa inlet tube gurgling..no blower.

Spa gurgles. If i use leaf blower for 20 seconds I can push water out and it stops gurgling until spa turns off..is the any way to fix problem without installing permanent blower

Sounds like there is a partial clog or restriction in the piping. Normally when the pump runs a venturi sucks air into the inlet. If the water piping is blocked there is not enough flow to create the venturi suction. If it were blocked more you might have water come out the inlet but right not it sounds like you are only getting weak suction from the venturi only strong enough to make a gurgling sound.

Brought the house with pool/spa already built. Neighbor said it always gurgled.i had jets out and ran pump.its variable speed and had it on high. I have water flow. I can believe old owner would accept a spa that gurgled. I’am at I lose for ideas..it wouldn’t be so bad but inlet is about four feet from tub
