    HELP! BUBBLES!

    OK - I don't know where else to post this... anyone ever had the kids dump a quart of bubble mix into the hot tub while it's running?

    They're dissipating now but I nearly flipped my lid when my wife called me out to this scene.

    Any concerns about permanent issues from this? Or just treat it like any other **** that gets dumped in the pool?

    thanks,
    Matt

    Elevating your chlorine level probably 50% above normal will dissipate it more quickly.

    What Dave said. Also, it looks like you could scoop lots w/skimmer net and dump/dunk in a bucket of cool water to help kill the suds off the net.

    Try some simethicone - sometimes sold as "infant gas drops". It should control the bubbles. I'm not sure how long it will take to filter out the soap. That's not an experiment that I want to try.
