    Pool jets sputtering

    The last few months I noticed my jets sputtering in my pool. I thought it was related to my lines needing be blow out. I had a pool guy tell me I needed to replace the device that manages the jets. It's located outside of the pool under a cover. I don't remember what he called it and cant find the estimate with the name. It's was around a $300 charge for him to replace the device.

    I ended up just having the lines blown out but I still have the problem with the jets.

    I want to get a second opinion before i start any work. Any suggestions?

    If they are "sputtering" the chances are great your pool is sucking in air. In that case you have a suction side leak. There is an article in Pool School about them that may help you.
