The water jets in most spas are adjustable so you can turn the water flow down to just a trickle if you want to.
You don't take current spa jets out of the spa. They are held in place by a couple of tabs. Through the years the chlorine/bromine will deteriorate those tabs and the spa jets will start "popping" out when the jets get turned on.
If you pull the jet insert out the socket they are in, you will ruin the jet insert and it will need to be replaced.
This actually sounds like you have some calcium built up on the inside of the air button. Take the trim ring off the air button and pull out the center button. Get some soft emery cloth and run it around the outside of the center button and well as the inside of the button body then reinstall. That should solve your problem with a sticking air button.

Air Switch Repair
It sounds like you have a bad air switch located in your motor.
The air switch is what the air hose connects to on the back of the motor or on the box on top of the motor. The other end of the air hose is connected to the air button on the lip of the tub.
This is a latching air switch and when you push the air button it latches to send power to the motor. When the air button is pushed again it opens the latch in the air switch and stops power going to the motor shutting it off.
This sounds like bacteria coming from the water lines. When was the last time you ran a cleaner through the jets? You should run a good Jet Clean type product of Maintenance Product in order to prevent the build up of bacteria in the water lines when the bath tub is not in use.
When the bath pump runs and you get no water going through the jets in your bath Jet trim then the impeller has probably spun off the shaft of the motor.You will not know if this is the case until you take the bath pump out and remove the front cover of the bath pump and check the impeller.If this is the case it usually has to be replaced.
The workings of a bath jet...From the inside of the Bath there is a wall fitting that threads from the inside of the tub into the jet body located on the outside wall of the tub. If the jet is leaking at this point behind the tub then you should take the wall fitting out of the tub and put a small bead of 100% RTV silicone around the flange of the wall fitting and reinstall it. If however, the leak is from the PVC piping going into the jet then you will need to replace the jet.
This is an automatic feature to dry out the pipes and prevent mold. The next time you turn on the pump after leaving these tubs for a few weeks you get lots of black **** in the water and this is what this feature prevents. Sounds like the tub is working fine :)
