Kid Pooped In Hot Tub
« on: January 06, 2021, 09:31:12 pm »
Our young one had an accident in the hot tub tonight. Has never happened before. Relatively hard poop that stayed in her bathing suit with maybe 5 little thin floaties pulled out of the water. Bromine was around 7 ppm with an ozontator. Just shocked the hell out of it to spike the bromine up + cleaned the filter.

What are my next steps? Just drain it, vacuum out the jets, wipe everything down, and refill? Is that it, or on the flipside, is that even necessary if the bromine was high + is really high now and will be kept high for a while?

Thanks

Every time your in the tub you add a little poop. Disinfect well and call it good. Or drain clean and refill. Your call.

I'm not a fan of small kids in the tub. We have friends turn the tub temp way down and use it like a kiddie pool
with kids as young as 2 not yet potty trained.

Sorry for the lecture.

I would drain, clean and refill. It is not necessary though as mentioned above lots of stuff enters your tub with each use. We do shower
100% of the time before getting in the tub and as mentioned above no little kids in the tub.

Sheila,

Where are you located?  If I was in Florida or another warm area, I would probably dump the water and refill.  But living in Ohio that isn't always that easy to do in winter.   I would consider shocking with an MPS product and maybe using a water clarifier product and running the jets for awhile and rinsing the filter after 24 hours.
