    Lightbulb foaming on pool water

    Hi,
    How can I make more and smooth foam on pool water. I have tried some things but could not find smooth foam on pool water.

    Forcing your pool water to produce foam is generally not a good idea. Please read "The ABC's of Pool Water Chemistry" up in Pool School

    I would buy them one of the those big bottles of bubbles from walmart and let them have fun in the yard!

    If you want them to play IN bubbles use the bathtub.

    Not a good idea to add stuff to your pool. You could cause problems with your balance.

    @Kimkats, I heard something like that normally bubble stuff cause balance problem. Anything which produce bubbles but not cause any balance problem.

    Not that I can think of Any kind of soap will mess with the PH and TA. Who knows what it will end up doing to the filter.

    7000 gallon pool is too big to mess up by putting stuff in it that is bad. I thought maybe you had a tiny, tiny pool that you could dump easily.

    Forget the foam.......you will be causing yourself more problems than it's worth.

    Re: foaming on pool water

    Maybe there is some kind of toy you could buy that they could use to produce bubbles just from the water. Thinking along the notion of when you blow into a straw in a glass and it produces bubbles... Not that this is something I do....

    Re: foaming on pool water

    @duraleigh ,I also thought pool is quite big and it ll difficult for me to handle all the stuff. Pool toys maybe a better option.

    @Marlahoutex, Yes you are right, some kind of toys help me a lot for my pool.
