The hot tub water is foamy

First make sure that everyone is showering before entering the spa. Also, check your filter and make sure it's clean. Then try a little bit of Dazzle Defoamer and that will help remove the foam. If the problem persists, it may be time for a water change.


The hot tub is greasy or has a yellow ring around the water line

Any grease or oil in the hot tub probably came in to the water from someone's skin. Make sure everyone is showering before entering. Sunscreen and body lotion can especially cause this problem. Use a Spa Brush to clean off the scum. Using a Zorbie can be amazing for preventing a scum line.


The hot tub filter is dirty

First try cleaning the filter with a Pleatco Filter Cleaning Tablet. These are amazing for removing dirt and oil and extending the life of your hot tub filter. If it is still dirty after a cleaning, it may be time for a new filter. We recommend new filters about once a year.
