    Can you help me ID this part from my spa jets?

    Thanks for looking! Pics attached.

    We recently purchased a home with a pool that was built in the 1990s. I noticed that one of the spa jets has a ton of flow while the others have very little, and we don't get bubbles from any of the jets.

    I drained the spa a bit, pulled out the eyeballs, and saw that the jet with a lot of flow was missing a nozzle deep within the body that was present in all the others. I used a 1/2" socket on a long extension to pull one of the nozzles out of the other jets so I could get a good look at the part. I'm thinking that if I could find one more of these nozzles I could drop it in and I'd have relatively even pressure from all the jets and the venturi might start working again.

    Any idea who made the pictured nozzle? My google-fu isn't getting me any good results... there's no markings on the nozzle that I can see, so I'm at a bit of a loss. Anyone seen one of these before?

    Thank you!

    Thanks, I didn't see anything on their web site, but perhaps I should give them a call. I ordered an EasyTouch 8 from them a couple weeks ago and they did a nice job on that transaction.

    The Balboa 30-4303 nozzle looks similar to the part I have... not exactly the same (mine is tapered on the front where the Balboa seems to be a straight) and it's hard to compare the dimensions with the info I can find, but it just might work for me. Gonna order a few and see.

    Just a followup for posterity.. the Balboa 30-4303 nozzles ended up being a perfect fit and I now have great bubbles coming from my spa jets again.
