How does a spa blower work?
Then, what does a spa air blower do?

A spa blower is mainly used when the air intake is fairly far from the spa. The blower helps the jet venturis to work properly with long runs of air pipe. However, the blower does not make the jets stronger it just adds more air to the stream.
