How To Get Rid of Hot Tub Foaming?

It’s not unusual for your family to use the hot tub regularly. However, as time goes on, it might have developed a foam buildup on the surface.

And of course, the bath which is too bubbly for your comfort is one of those things that's usually not on your mind when it comes to relaxation.

A hot tub is more than just a pool. It's also a large bath tub full of chemicals and soap. The foam that's used to make it foam is just plain nasty. 

Don't worry, here we have the answer on your question on how to eliminate hot tub foaming. Keep reading below!


Causes of Hot Tub Foam

The warm water of a spa helps remove dead skin cells and dirt from the body. It also provides a great source of oil and soap.

A high pH and/or low calcium hardness can help prevent foaming. Also, maintaining a high alkalinity and/or calcium hardness level can help minimize the effects of chlorine on your system.

Solutions to Hot Tub Foam

Although spa shock can break down many of these harmful substances, it can't remove the oils and phosphates found in the water.

Spa Enzymes are natural products that can be used to break down soap scum and oily substances.

The Spa Defoamer is a non-oily foam removal solution that can be used to remove foam from any type of spa. It's a safe and effective way to prevent guests from experiencing unpleasant foam reactions in the hot tub.


Preventing Hot Tub Foam

One of the easiest ways to prevent the foam from forming is to keep the temperature of the hot tub at a minimum. However, this will not solve the problem.

Draining the Spa is the ultimate solution to prevent foaming. It's a must-do if you have a hot tub that constantly foams due to BioFilm. However, if you can't completely drain the spa, you can still fix the issue by draining half of it and then filling it up with Jet Clean.

Before using the spa, take a shower. Doing so will help prevent the buildup of tension and make the experience more pleasant.

If you have long hair, put it up so that the products can't get into the tub. Also, if you have short hair, put it up so that the products can't get into the tub.

Wash clothes thoroughly in hot water to remove soap. Also, avoid wearing shirts that have been washed with soap.

Maintain Water Balance, with particular care to your pH, calcium and sanitizer levels.
