PB / Plumber showed up today... they believe they've isolated it to a defective jet body that is apparently misshapen and is affecting pressure. They're going to try some special sealant to help address, but PB seemed skeptical that would work. Plan B is opening the back of the spa to physically replace the jet body itself.

Has surgery started? You need to get pics, and the autopsy of the defective part would be interesting as well. (or see if it was a sloppy glue job that FUBARed the part)

Not yet. PB is working through some scheduling conflicts with the sub. Normally this would irritate me but my build process started last July (and even that was after a multi month delay after signing the contract) and only finished in late Feb - so I've learned patience that I never knew I had.

** All pool builders in Austin had similar construction delays last year - Tesla built a massive factory here and gobbled up nearly all qualified contractors, especially anyone with concrete skills.

Quick update.. They reseated the jets and got 5 of 6 working. That 6th is trying really hard, but not fully fixed. They're trying to figure out a plan B but have started discussing having to open up a small section on the non plaster side of the spa to replace the defective jet body... While I want my spa to work 100% - I'm considering just letting it go... We're approaching a year of construction at this point and just not sure i want to prolong for 1 jet. Interested in opinions.

Im having similar issue with 2 of my jets. I can feel a small amount of water coming out and air blower works fine.

Did you ever get your issue fixed?
