    Spa jets not working anymore

    I had a swimming session last week and I couldn't get my spa jets to come on full blast. When I hit the spa button on my control panel, the jets just output water similar to the pool returns, but there's no strong jet action. I've recently had some work done on the system, so not sure which is the culprit, or which company to call back out. Here's the work I've had done recently and they were both done within 4 days of each other. The spa worked fine the week prior to having these repairs (the last time I used it too).

    1. Had spa check valve and filter backflow valve replaced to fix leaks: done by local pool company

    2. Installed EcoStar variable speed 2HP pump: done by Leslie's Pool

    I also personally updated the motherboard on my automated controller, so that i would be able to have the variable speed pump installed...but I used the spa after doing that with no problems. I was thinking maybe one of the guys changed a setting in the panel, but I went thru all the menus and couldn't find anything out of order, unless I'm missing something. And just now I read something about pipe size, wondering if Leslie's used a wrong size if that could be the culprit. Need your help...the wife is missing her spa! Thanks.

    Anyone have any insight on this? I was doing some more reading, and could it be there's an air lock in the system somewhere? If it was an air lock, wouldn't it effect the return jets in the pool too? The plumbing in the pool is running fine.
