    Water coming out air induction pipe

    I am a pool and spa technician in Florida and I care for an in ground spa that is 2350 gallons, has 12 jets and 2 therapy pumps. When the therapy jets are on I have water coming out of the air induction pipe. This did not start happening until about 3 or 4 months ago. The type of fixture and jets are SP1434PAKA and SP1434PAKB. Nothing on this spa has changed for years. Can someone please help me understand what is happening?

    I wish I could, but I'm not a spa guy at all. I just wanted to say welcome to the forum, and enjoy your time on TFP.

    You've got a restriction after the air venturi. I'd start looking behind the spa jets. They should unscrew, but you'll probably need a deep socket to reach.
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
