It is a small hose that goes into a tee fitting. I see where the other 2 hoses off the tee fitting go

Hello, how can I help you today? Can you see where the other two hoses are going?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes sir. They go yo the 2 small fittings in picture
Expert:  poolguy810 replied 2 years ago.
ok, those are either your circ pump injectors or ozone injection. A circ pump uses 3/4 inch clear tubing lines. An ozonator uses smaller 3/8 inch clear tubing . Any idea what size they are? A picture of the equipment compartment would help immensely also. Thanks, jeff
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I would say 3/8. I attached a couple of pictures

Equipment compartment
Expert:  poolguy810 replied 2 years ago.
That looks like the hoses for the ozonator then. All spas are set up for one, but not all spas have an ozonator. Have toy seen anything that says that on it?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No sir I have not. I looked all around the compartment after you said that. However I cannot find one. I see the control panel, heater, and 2 pumps. When I put water in tub it comes out that 3/8 hose so I'm assuming it was there at one time. We just bought this house last month and trying to get it operating.

Without the ozonator, where would that hose connect to or do they get blocked off
Expert:  poolguy810 replied 2 years ago.
Well, without the ozonator, that hose is normally coiled up and looped up high inside the bottom side of the spa cabinet so that it's higher than the water level. There should also be a small check valve in it that keeps the water from coming out. Basically if you loop it high, then put a bolt or anything in the end of it with a clamp on it to keep it from leaking, you can just leave it that way since it's of no use without an ozonator. It's basically a dead line that's not needed.
