    You can prevent this problem by squirting a little RODI water down the venturi air tube once in awhile. I have a spray bottle next to the tank and spray a few quirts down the tube when I do regular maintenance. That helps to dissolve any salt buildup and keep the air flowing. I haven’t had a blocked venturi since I started doing this.

  • Bullfrog I heat up RODI water and pour down the venturi. Dissolves salt and crud FAST!
