Hot Tub Foam

Excessive foam in hot tubs is a common problem for spa owners and often leaves many people wondering, what causes hot tub foam? Well we are here to tell you what causes it, as well as what your options are to prevent it.

What causes hot tub foam?

Hot tub foam can be caused from several different things, such as: drinks, soap, laundry detergent, deodorant, body lotions, makeup, hair spray, hair gel, mousse, and shampoo.

In addition, the cause could also be TDS (total dissolved solids), too many chemicals, or inferior chemicals. Make sure to only add the required amount of trusted chemicals to your hot tub.

How to prevent hot tub foam?

  • Make sure to shower before you enter the hot tub! Showering will help remove all body chemicals, make up and/or any soap residue that may be on your body.
  • Make sure bathing suits are cleaned with fresh water before entering the hot tub.
  • Don’t buy cheap chemicals. Buy chemicals from a trusted retailer. We have our own retail store where we sell some of the best chemicals on the market. For more information on our retail store, click here.
  • Keep your head above the water. If your hair is considered long, it’s a good idea to keep it up by wearing a baseball cap.
  • As tempting as it can be, avoid drinking in your hot tub as you run the risk of spilling your drink in the water.
  • Drain and clean your hot tub every 3 to 4 months, or as required.
