Foam issue
« on: April 15, 2018, 08:39:07 am »
Hello. Just started getting a bunch of white foam for no apparent reason. Bromine alkaline and ph are all st normal levels. Didnít have an issue for a month after draining and refilling water, but not every time I turn the jets on, foam begins to form everywhere. There is no scum from the foam. Any ideas or suggestions?

Foam comes from soap residue on your skin and in your suits.  There are also surfactants in other products that we wear that will contribute.  Another cause can be not thoroughly rinsing your filters after using a filter cleaning product. 

Foam won't hurt anything.  I recommend scooping out as much as you can, then use a foam eliminator product.  With foam eliminator, you don't need a lot.  I recommend putting it in an empty spray bottle.  A light mist will do the trick.  Additionally, raising your calcium hardness can help, though you open up another can of worms with that.

I do use foam down and that works great, but I don't like having to do it every single time we get in the tub.  We haven't changed anything from what we've been doing over the past month and the foam started randomly...No idea what the actual cause is.
