    Baja DeckBubblers?

    Can any of you good peeps point me to any info on the bubblers used on baja decks? Mine is going to be 6 inches deep, so the bubbler needs to be able to shoot thru the water without causing a geyser. Obviously, I'll have a valve on the bubbler line to modulate the flow, but I'm curious as to what kind of head to use.

    thanks in advance,

    These are what we used on our 9" shelf, but I think you can get versions that are not lighted. I assume the only way to prevent a geyser spouting up is to run your pump lower or use an adjustable valve as you mentioned.

    Re: Baja DeckBubblers?

    Our PB recommended a "foam jet" not a bubbler. He said it shoots higher in the air and you can adjust it. He says the bubblers don't do much and will hurt my little ones feet when stepping on them but the jets are flush.

    With that being said.... We haven't built yet, dig is soon!

    Curious what a foam jet nozzle looks like. Looking for a bubbler nozzle isn't the easiest thing in the world, unless you spend the big bucks for the lighted LED Pentair nozzles. I looked for about 2 years for the flush mount nozzles I'm using. Otherwise, bubblers are kind of a mystery to pool owners and pool builders. I'm just glad I found a solution that works and only cost me $15.

    ^ agree. Even my pool plumber is kind of clueless. Finally I told him that the only thing he needs to do is get the 1 1/2 FPT supply pipes in location and trimmed so the CMT nozzles here will be flush with the finish. He wanted to use spa jets...Also, I've set up a separate supply line to the bubblers with a valve to moderate the volume.

    Re: Baja DeckBubblers?

    Thanks, but that is a little more than I'm looking for. Im going to have chaise lounges on my Baja Deck and don't need that much splashing. Stang's bubblers are perfect for my application. Those Foam Jets are $138 each and they don't look like they are flush to the deck...so they won't work for me. But thanks any ways!

    For those that have these on their sun shelf are they flush? I'm totally regretting not fighting for them our pool builder heavily suggested not doing them because he said people are constantly cutting their toes on them.

    The ones I installed fit flush and dont have sharp edges that could cut you.
