    Only return jets by stairs work...other three do not

    Last year I bought a house with an in ground pool...needless to say it wasn't taken care of and we had to put in a new liner, pump and filter. We noticed only two of the five return jets worked...and they were the ones by the stairs. the other three don't seem to be working. Before I rip out concrete...which I really don't want to do, is there a reason that only two work and not the other three that is easier?

    I've dug up the dirt around the piping from the pump and filter area to the concrete and those pipes look intact. granted that was only about 6-8 feet of pipe.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. We want to open the pool soon!!

    Welcome!

    How about a picture of the pump area? There might be a valve somewhere.

    I'll post a picture tomorrow morning, but as far as I know, there aren't any valves to turn on/off. Thanks for the reply.

    Sorry, camera is fuzzy so no pics...but there are no valves on the pump or filter...just pvc into the ground. So just very confused why only two of the five work.
