    Air switch tubing gone. Looking for creative solution...

    The previous owner removed the 20+ feet of tubing from the hot tub to the blower. I have replaced the air switch and blower and they work fine. I just want to be able to activate it from the tub. I tried a few different fishing tapes trying to get through the conduit and have been unsuccessful. I am looking for advise on how to get an air tube through the conduit or a creative solution to a remote switch setup that would work in its place.

    Thanks!

    Use a small bag from a grocery store tied to a string and suck it through with a shop vac. Sort of like a parachute in reverse.

    Depending on the conduit size, you may need to cut down the bag.

    Unfortunately, no. The conduit seems to be completely blocked.
