I'm currently getting my pool resurfaced and retiled. I have a spa that spills over into the pool. When I bought the place the current blower was dead. I bought a new one and it works great. There are a number of holes drilled into the seats around the spa and the thing cranks really well. We don't use it often but it is nice to have when we want to kick it on. I had multiple places tell me the holes would be problematic when resurfacing and they advise to just go over them. If they mark them and attempt to drill them out it could cause issues with leaking. It is too easy to knick the pipes underneath and causes too many issues. I would love to keep them but I also don't want this job to go south. There are 4 return jets in the spa itself and appears to be connected to the Venturi tube a few feet away (if I cover a jet water comes spitting out of the tube). So the big question is what do I do? Is there another way to hook up the blower going through the jets or should I just scrap the whole thing and move on with the seat holes covered up? The installer is happy to attempt to keep the holes open but he was uneasy about the idea.
Thanks in advance.
