That is partially correct. Depending on the softness/hardness of your water the Ahh-Some can foam more or less. Doing a second purge sounds like it was NOT necessary. In any event, you had some residual Ahh-Some and foam in the plumbing after the drain out. Upon refilling it was released into the tub. Next time you do a purge and drain, fill the tub, run the jets and scoop out any residual foaming. It seems like you have a very very clean hot tub at the moment.

Wanted to run something by you. We changed the water on our
hot tub this weekend. Before dumping the water, I put 4
of ahh-some in the tub with the filters in the tub itself
and ran it.
Got the expected yellow'ish scum line and about 2" of foam.
water all the way down, rinsing the tub down as it drained
cleaned the tub with 50/50 vinegar and water. Used the shop
vac to clean
out the lines well. Refilled the tub and I thought I'd go
clean so I added 3 level teaspoons of ahh-some and that's
where it all
We had so much foam (no yellow scum, just pure white, dense
picture attached) it was spilling over the sides. Drained
lines, wiped down tub and refilled. On refill, there was
still a lot of
foam, tho not as dense as last time. pH of the water was
(tap is 7.4, tub was reading 8.0+ even before aeration).
rinsed well, vacuumed and filled again. This time, still had
but nothing too crazy. Our tap water has a calcium hardness
level of 90
so I typically add calcium to get it to 120. Did that here
and it helped
a bit but when I tried to get my alkalinity from tap water
of 90 down to
50 and bring the pH down, adding up to 6oz of muriatic acid
it just would not come down.
Dumped the water AGAIN, did the vacuum and wipe down and
time, it is normal.
I'm wondering if the second time I added the ahh-some, I
and the first time took care of what it needed to. My theory
while I was going for extra clean, since it cleaned it the
the second time the ahh-some had nothing to "eat up" so it
everything to foam/soap that was hard to break down and
Can you let me know what you think?
