Welcome to the forum! I know one way to get bubbles in the spa but it's probably not the solution you are looking for.

Post away with your questions in the appropriate areas and enjoy the site!

Welcome to TFP... a great place to find the answers to all your "How NOT to get bubbles in your spa.." questions... :shark:

Well, I don't have a built-in spa, but I thought that what you are seeing is how they should operate... no bubbles unless the spa blower was on...

Maybe I just don't understand the problem.. Is this a new pool/spa and it never worked, or is this an old pool/spa and worked before but now does not work?
