    One of Six spa jets has reverse flow

    New pool/spa installed last year, jets worked fine. This year, (I believe since pool opening) the 5th of six jets in a semicircular spa flows out, and the 6th appears stronger. With bubble generator on, the 5th has a weak positive flow. Does this sound like a blockage?
    Inground 19000 gal gunnite with attached spa. Shared equipment, 2HP VS pump, cartridge filter, UV/Ozone generator with backup chlorinator. Pressure side cleaner with 1HP booster pump. Natural gas heater. 6 jet spa with bubble generator, separate 2HP pump for waterfall from spa to Basin/Pool. Pentair Easy Touch controller, pentair IS10 spa side controller.

    If one of the jets is sucking water in then it means that the jet nozzle is plugged with debris. Most nozzles are removeable with a long socket. Sometimes you get lucky by using a stiff wire to push into the jet with the pump running and that will dislodge the obstruction. Also, don't be surprised if this is happening if the nozzle has come out and is missing or came out and is stuck inside the jet fitting.
