I have grown violets in self-watering pots for thirty years. This is the first time I have had an issue. The new leaves are very tiny and the plant is not flowering. This is happening in several pots. Should I throw them out and start over? I have read that is the only remedy. Thank you.

It does sound like the plant is just aging. You may be able to give it a few more years by repotting, very carefully, but unfortunately, they may have lived their lifespan. You did very well to make them live that long, so I don't think you need any help with that!
Unfortunately, though, I do think it will be time to start over soon.
