    Default Does anyone know what this is?

    This was found on the side wall near the Jacuzzi. It appears to have a pipe or two running into it. Other than that I don't have a clue what it is. It doesn't twist, turn, or open. It has no valve, button or control of any sort. I really need to figure this out becuase it seemed to have a slight leak.

    C'mon Kevin. You don't know a cup holder when you see one? The leak was obviously spilt beer.

    My guess would be an air break of some type or maybe an air inlet are for the bubble action?

    But Jerry, Nick already said it was a cup holder, however; the air break thing makes a little since to.

    An air break, I think that is what I'll call it.

    Saw one on a plane once come to think of it.

    Thanks Jerry.

    If it is the device that regulates the air flow it is called the

    Air Admittance Valve: A device that replaces a traditional vent to allow air to enter the pump supply system for the purpose of enhancing the hydro-massage effect of the whirlpool.

    Not to be confused with AAV air admittance vent

    A portion of it should turn open for more air/bubbles or close for less.

    It should not be leaking anything but air, duh

    You can get the same effect if you drink a couple of cokes real fast just before you get in the tub.

    The only reason some people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory.
