Old Time Swim Spa owner with new problem


Aug 9, 2012
We've owned an Endless swim spa for over 7 years. We routinely maintained the pool with bromine tabs, shocking occasionally with liquid chlorine bleach. Recently (this summer) we noticed a precipitate forming that settles at the bottom of the pool after shocking. We did change brands of bromine and attributed the change to the new bromine tabs. We've since drained, re-filled, and went back to our old supplier of bromine tabs. Unfortunately I'm already seeing some of the same globules settling to the bottom of the pool. Any thoughts on what this is? How we can mitigate it? Thanks in advance for any help!

Here is a thread about the use of ahh-some the cleaner. I think it would be very worth your try!

It is even said it is a good idea to clean using it on a brand new spa as they are water tested before they leave the factory so some water gets trapped in the pipes and can get very yucky from sitting.
