Help identifing this please.. spitting water

There is water spitting out of this dead end hose line which comes from the lines going to the jets. It appears to have an end on it to release air? It's hanging there with no obvious place it is supposed to be.

a Keys backyard hot tub. What is this thing? What is it for? It obviously isn't supposed to be spitting water. Started rotting the wood inside the frame.
how do I attach photos on here? I guess should be my first question. They don't have their own URL?

That hose might be an air intake for the jets. They often have check valves on them... which frequently fail. Try turning on the jets and open the air control for all the jets. Are you getting bubbles? Did the hose stop spitting water?
