foam reducer is a safe and effective way to get rid of excessive foam in your hot tub. It works by reducing the surface tension that allows bubbles to stay trapped on the water’s surface. It is recommended to add one squirt of the product to each spa service and repeat as needed until the foaming subsides. This product is non-toxic and can be used in conjunction with any hot tub care chemicals, including non-chlorine shock treatments.
Foamy water can be caused by a build up of body oils, detergents and lotions, excess Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) in the water, or by using too much foaming enhancing products. If you are experiencing foam in your hot tub, first rebalance the water and then add the foam reducer to defoam the water. Then, be sure to follow the two golden rules for hot tub care: Use a quality chemical product from a reputable source (like Sundance) and shock your spa once per week.
Foam is a common problem in industrial chemical processing plants, where it can restrict the space in pipes and vats, inhibit chemical reactions and create a mess that takes time and money to clean up. To deal with it, many facilities use chemical additives known as defoamers or anti-foaming agents, such as insoluble oils, polydimethylsiloxanes and other silicones, stearates and alcohols. However, these often affect the purity of the chemicals being produced, and are costly to filter out later. So Leonid Rapoport PhD and colleagues at MIT set out to find simpler, cheaper ways to control foams in chemical processes.
