    New variable pump noticing difference in jets

    Hey gang,

    I have been working on adjusting my variable pump to get the best bang for the buck. I have noticed at 50% power that two of my jets are not pushing water, but the third one has what looks like normal flow. When I crank up to 70% I get good flow through all 3.

    Should I be worried that the flow is not averaged through all 3. The least amount of flow is coming from the jet furthest from the pump.

    Thanks for the help in advance.

    that will be normal, as the power goes down it is pushing less water/pressure and the further jets will get less pressure..
