    Sudden Low Pressure in Spa

    Hello everyone. Had a situation yesterday, put my pool system in spa mode and turned on spa drains so I could suck all silt and dirt back to the filter. Im in the spa with goggles pushing sand/silt into drains when all of a sudden the jets stop "blowing". I know theyre not really blowing unless I push the air button but, you know what I mean. The water pressure stopped. So, I went shut the system down, checked the strainer basket and had quite a bit of mown grass in there from the previous mow. Cleaned it all out, started the system back up, filter pressure is normal, everything is fine but, low pressure on those jets when in spa mode. Any advice? Thank you.
