I apparently lost at hot tubbin. Came home to check the FC and its cloudy n like looks like Mr. Bubbles farted in it. FC 0 CC 2. Looks like I'll be purging it tomorrow after work. I have plants to replace today n can't get to it. I gotta figure out how to dump it. I have a sump pump or if there is an easier way.
Hot tub 1... Casey 0!
*being mindful of the residual soap / shampoo / conditioner you'll bring with you.You should really shower / rinse off before using your hot tub
Also +1. After I got the girls to not dunk their heads to keep down on foaming (thick hair that kept loads of residuals), I still noticed a big difference between their full suits and my trunks. Alot of what we were adding was 'clean' and sanitary, but it contributed to the DudeFam soup we were boiling.Also, your washing machine really does not go that great a job of removing detergent from your clothes. If you wash your bathing suit on a regular basis, every time you use it after you wash it, you are putting detergent into your tub
I've had mine running six weeks and pretty much test it twice daily (2 or 3 people get in it for 15-20 minutes most days). Maybe two or three times I've dosed it without testing because I've felt confident in how much chlorine (bleach) I was going to need to add.So this thing is going to need babysat every single day.
Just the one, or did you run until you got a clean cycle ? Yours being new, it's likely there wasn't chunks of crud in there, but mine going so long had many purges worth of ooze to get out. Matter of fact it took 2 purges just to start to loosen the crud.Did the purge n I'm draining now.
I only did one. I didnt think I needed 2, 3 or more. I had crud which i posted pics of but it didnt fill the whole top of the tub surface with gunky funk. Just a little bit. More than i thought I'd get so I'm pretty grossed out. LOL But I remember standing in front of a cell n said to myself I've been in worse situations than this dirty hot tub.Just the one, or did you run until you got a clean cycle ?

It sounds too late so no biggie, but next time plan on multiple purges just to be sure You use a half dose on each subsequent round until you get a clean one. Then you're done.
We don't think around here, we know.I didnt think I needed 2, 3 or more
I'll keep that in mind.We don't think around here, we know.
Next time run cycles until you get a clear one. It's likely that was all you had on a fresh tub. It will be 6 months or so when it's time to drain and if you use it as much as you're planning to, it may take a few rounds.
I never doubted that the manufacturer said it, I'm just wondering why.Here's where it says the use of a SWG will void the warranty. The Tub is clean n now filling up.
Did u add cya yet?I had an oops. I overdid the FC. Its 15ppm. I don't think itll stick around long because it's hot water. I kept the cover open since 3pm. I only added a cup of old 10% chlorine from 2020. It's still pretty potent. You guys think it'll be ok?
