    Your system is similar to a Salt Water Chlorine Generator, and what you are seeing is probably hydrogen bubbles in the water generated by the system.

    Hi pokalook,
    Welcome to TFP!

    It could also be air bubbles, which would mean you have a leak somewhere.

    Re: need help urgent!! white thing coming out

    I am curious as to whether it does this continually while running, or only at start up for a short while. After which it stops outputting those bubbles?
    What happens if you shut the chlorinator completely off, but still run the pump and filter. Do bubbles still come out of the return jets?

    Have you checked the chlorinator cell to make sure it's clean and free of calcium buildup scale or any debris that might have worked its way in there?

    Can you elaborate as good can vary quite considerably? Please tell us your chemistry levels. FC, CC, TA, PH, CH and CYA.

    It may be your CH, PH and TA levels that a making the issue so pronounced.
