    hot tub aerator

    I have ben using bleach in my watkins hot tub for about 4 years now. I would like to do away with the aerator in the hot tub. My question is can I just unplug aerator unit or do I need to remove and plug air lines also?

    Thanks Ric

    Just curious, why do you want to remove it? pH rise? If you do remove it, my thought is it is probably best to plug, so stuff can't grow in it easily where the flow is low.
