Lets Get Rid of Foam with ANTI-FOAM!

How to Get Rid of Hot Tub Foam

Getting rid of foam is actually easier than you might think. Before you try to do any corrective matters on your own, TEST YOUR WATER. A water test will help to see the chemical breakdown of spa’s water. Testing for pH, sanitizer, alkalinity, and total dissolved solids will help in better understanding why your spa is foaming. As well, we can establish what your water looks like after the foam is gone to help prevent these frothy matters from happening.

Other issues in your tub can cause foaming. A low calcium hardness level, among other things can cause foam in your tub. It is important to test these levels regularly to prevent corrosion, prevent foaming, and protect the finishes of your spa.

Sometimes, draining and refilling your tub is the easiest and best way to get rid of the pesky foam. As you are already having to drain your tub, it is best you give it a deep clean as well. Thoroughly cleaning your spa while it is drained will help prevent future foam.

For Quick Fixes: Anti-Foam Chemicals

Sometimes we just need a quick fix, say you have a party coming up and you don’t have time for all the steps. You can buy a foam remover, this works almost instantly and can last for up to 24 hours. Although, this will not solve the root cause of your foam issue. You’ll still need to drain and refill to rid your hot tub of foam.

The best way to combat foam in a hot tub is to prevent it. Here are a few recommendations for your maintenance.

  1. Buy your chemicals from a trusted source, even if you are paying a little more.
  2. Maintain a regular maintenance schedule. This includes regular water testing and a drain and refill every 3-4 months.

Having foam in your hot tub might feel like a big pain, but correcting it can be fairly simple. Once you have a clean hot tub and fresh water, preventing foam in the future will be easy. Just remember to avoid adding things that make your sanitizer work overtime and keep a regular maintenance schedule.
