Hey everyone.. I looked around and couldn't find any definite answer
to this problem..
I have a smaller 5 person Hot Tub on my lower deck.. Wonderfull
little unit, perfect for me and the wife.
I maintain the water to the n'th degree (I use Bromine, not Chlorine,
in case it matters), and my ballances are always good...no issues
there. While idle, or in low-speed heating mode, my water is
I don't overload on chemicals, or skimp - only what's needed, as
However, whenever I kick on the highspeed jets, my water goes
completely milky white...
For the first few weeks after a water change (every 3 months), this
doesn't happen - I can run the jets with full aeration, and the water
remains clear enough even through the bubbles to see your feet on the
bottom of the tub..
However, this happens within a month or a month and a half of every
fresh water fill...
It doesn't appear to be any sort of particulate issues, as within 3 to
5 minutes of turning the jets off, the water clears completely again,
back to crystal clear - no residue, nothing..
Does anyone else have this problem? Can anyone offer a resolution?
It really doesn't effect the functionality or enjoyment of the tub at
all, and my water balances are never an issue regardless, but it's
more of an appearance issue....whenever we do have friends over who
want to use the tub, I find that I try to keep the highspeed jets off
as much as possible, as the white murky water after the fact is a
little less then attractive, if not harmless...
