    Milky water and foam with jets

    I started using bleach as my oxidizer and I have been able to keep the water clean and clear for as long as necessary. Not sure why that made a difference but it did

    Water turned milky again. All the numbers stayed balanced since last fill. Not sure what the issue is.

    If I did have phosphates wouldn't the high bromine levels for several days take care of it?

    When we did our first fill on the hot tub we did not have a good test kit but after the water became cloudy we drained it. It's possible in that time that the bromine was low. After we refilled it I had the Taylor 2106 kit and used it for 4 weeks and then the cloudiness returned. I used spa purge before this fill and drained it and filled it again a couple days ago. I will see if the problem occurs again. If it does I will check into ahh-some products next.

    Bromine plus from solus spa initially to get a bank Calcium booster from solus spa (can't find chemical info) ph down from solus spa sodium bisulfate 3 or 4 ozs total chlorine free oxidizer. Potassium monopersulfate compound I put in 1-2 tablespoons every other time we used the tub. Other than that I did not put in anything. Water stayed pretty balanced for last 4 weeks with minimal chemicals.

    Bromine was high because I had shocked it for 3 days as a last ditch effort to clear up the water. Bromine 40 total alkalinity 60 calcium hardness 340 PH 7.4-7.5

    I drained the hot tub today but I will get you my last numbers when I get up tomorrow and can reference what i wrote down on my last test. I'm just curious why this has happened twice in a row. It happened at the 3-4 week window last time also. I'm wondering if there's a bloom or something in the pipes maybe.

    Alright so I bought the Taylor 2106 kit and I drained the tub, cleaned the filter, and balanced the water perfectly. After only 4 weeks of use I got milky water again. Only my wife and I use the hot tub, we are religious about showering before entering, there is no laundry detergent on our swim suits because we don't wear any. What the heck could be the problem? Any ideas?
  10. When I am testing my calcium hardness with the Taylor test kit I seem to be having a problem. When I add start adding the drops that turn the water blue I notice there are little blobs floating around in the water. They are blueish purple in color and the water changes from red to a little bluish. It doesn't change anymore with more drops it just stays the same after that endpoint. I don't see the water change to a vivid blue color like it should. I tried adding 5-6 drops of the 3rd vial first like the instructions say but I still get the same result. I guess my question is..... is that supposed to happen? Does the water not turn into a strong blue color? I might not be very clear in this explanation so feel free to ask me any questions to clear this up. Thanks for your help in advance.

    Thanks very much for the information. I will read up on the info you gave me.

    Thanks for your replies. It's slimy so I took the water to pinch a penny to test and they said I needed calcium booster. I boosted it and the foam lessened but I just went ahead and drained it and refilled it. Does anybody have a recommendation for a good bromine test kit that is accurate? The strips seems to be way off. Thanks again.
  13. Hey guys I'm new to the forum and a new hot tub owner. I've been searching around here for some answers to this problem but I can't seem to find the answer I'm looking for. So here's my problem I have had a dream maker hot tub for 3 weeks and about a week ago I started to notice some minor cloudiness in the water and also excess foam while the jets are running. I added foam reducer and water clarifier and the foam lessened but the cloudiness worsened. When I turn off the jets there is some foam that stays on the surface for an extended amount of time and there is a filmy residue kind of feel to it. I have washed and cleaned the filter and all the levels appear to be in normal range. If i leave the jets off the foam doesn't appear but the water is still cloudy. Any help that someone can give me would be extremely appreciated. I tried to post a picture of bubbles but the forum won't let me upload the pic because it's too large.
