    it's a giant bubble bath!

    Our hot tub has turned into a 450-gallon bubble bath. I mean, it's ridiculous. We use bromine and chlorine to shock. Our clothes are not "fresh." I just don't get it. there was so much foam we literally could push it out.

    Any ideas why????

    Any chance the liquid chlorine was 'scented', 'splashless', etc?

    nope. not a chance.
    We change the filters regularly too. I don't know why it's gotten so horribly bad. I mean, it used to be "some" bubbles but it literally was piling up. If my husband had been home, I would have had him take a picture of it.

    When was the last time you used Ahh-some to clean the biofilms from your tub when draining?

    Is it possible some kind of detergent got into it from newly washed clothes? Any mischievous kids about that might have thought it fun to make a bubble bath? (As a kid, I would have totally put soap in a bubble tub to make big bubbles...)
