    Default Jacuzzi Bathtub - Low Jet Pressure

    I have a Jacuzzi Bathtub. When you turn the jets on, there is water flow but it is not
    very strong anymore. This problem got gradually worst over several months. The air
    controls no longer seem to have much effect. The bathtub was installed by the builder
    without any access panels. So before I pull off the front carpeted plywood panel, I thought
    I'd ask if anyone had any thoughts on what might be occurring. I have cleaned the tub periodically
    with Cascade and cleaned the intake filter.

    THANKS for help !!!

    I'd read the instructions from the manufacturer carefully to determine the proper cleaning chemicals and procedures. Try that, then see what happens. Misuse of cleaners can ruin the pump or pit the materials.
