Water Balance Parameters
Foam is usually an indication of high TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) level, low calcium level or a dirty or plugged filter. If foaming persists, test your hot tub water to see their levels.
Beachcomber 6 Ways Water Test Strips
|Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) level
Total Dissolved Solids is a measure of how saturated, tired or well used the water has become in a hot tub. The TDS reading tells you when you can dilute existing water by adding more water, and when you should drain and re-fill your hot tub.
A TDS level reaching 1500 ppm can produce foam.
Solution: Drain and start-up fresh or do partial drain and fill with fresh water. Beachcomber Drain&Fill Kit
Low Calcium Hardness
Calcium levels should be maintained between 150 – 200 ppm; water that has a low calcium hardness level will foam more than harder water.
Solution: Increase Calcium Hardness level to 150 – 200 ppm by adding Beachcomber Protect.
Any detergent based product that enters the hot tub will cause foam. People and swim suits always have trace amounts of soap, lotion and detergents that are constantly introduced into the hot tub water environment.
Solution: Eliminate foam by rinsing or cleaning the filter, super chlorinating, or performing a partial or full drain.
