    Leaking Return Jet only when Skimmer is running

    My pool recently started leaking. Dye showed the leak was at one of the return jets. What seems odd is that it only leaks when the skimmer runs. I shut the valve to the skimmer to isolate it and the jet does not leak. I can run the pump and the jets operate normally and do not leak as long as I leave the valve to the skimmer closed. A pool guy came over and he thinks the line is broken to the jet, but I would think the jet would leak all the time then?

    Any thoughts?
