  1. I have these slimy white things all of a sudden. I cleaned the tub with ahh-some and when I refilled they were all over the place. So I emptied it and cleaned it again....still more. I tried to dissolve a few with straight chlorine and also CLR. But neither one does anything. I'm stumped.
  2. Thanks ahhsomeguy. Mine was a floor model purchased in early 2016. I'm still waiting to hear back from the manufacturer.

I have tried those super cleaners 4 times. I have tried super shocking the spa 2 times and left it for 5 days. After each try it just comes back.
