Occasionally you will find that the jets pulsate rather than provide a steady flow of water. This is often the sign that the filters need to be cleaned or replaced. It could also mean that your water level has fallen so low that a mixture of air and water is being drawn form the tub. Top up the tub and see if that corrects the problem.
If the pump still doesn't provide a smooth flow of water you will have to check the filters. The best way is to turn the tub off and remove the filters. Run the tub for long enough to see if the flow from the pump has been smoothed out. If it has, clean or change the filters. Do not put the old filters back and continue using the tub-this could cause damage to the pump.
If the pump does not produce a smooth flow with the filters removed, there is the unlikely possibility of a blockage in the plumbing. Since the plumbing to be checked is around the pump it should not take too long to do.
With no blockage causing the problem the likely culprit is the pump itself or the electronics that control it. This is something that is best left to the experts.
Fortunately, most problems with hot tub jets are as easy to sort out as changing the filters or topping up the water level. A hard water problem should never arise in reality since a test of your water supply will have indicated that the tub required the water to be treated.
