After 3 months of mostly the wife and I, we had some additional family in the tub the past few days and boy did that baby foam up!!
Thought I'd check here to see if there are a couple of defoaming agents that are recommended?
thanks
Ken

I always used Leisure Time de-foaming agent. When I have massive amounts of foam I usually double up on the enzymes. I use Natural Chemistry's Spa Perfect enzymes. I was think of switching to SeaKlear Enzyme and de-forming agent as well.

nudity works the best...seriously, most likely the foam was caused by residual detergent in the swim suits.

"defoaming agents" are only a temporary bandaid.
What the heck do I know, I only started in this industry in 1981, and retired from it after 33 years.

If you can't sell it on ebay, it may not even qualify as landfill.

The poster said they got foaming due to family coming over to use the spa and your soluton is Nudity? I'm not sure what mountain clan you came from Doc but I think I'll pass on getting nude in my hot tub when family stops by to use it with us!
