How Do I Get Rid of Hot Tub Foam?

To get rid of foam in your hot tub you should learn what is causing your hot tub to make foam in the first place. When a hot tub gets used on a regular basis and many people are in and out of the water regularly, the water will dissolve solids that are not meant to be in the water to begin with. Think of all of the products that you use on a typical day. Men often wear after shave, and deodorant after showering with shampoo and body wash. Women will use shampoos, soaps, lotions, perfumes, makeup, and many other products. These products will often get washed away and stay in the hot tub and floats to the surface and will cause foam.
