The Problem

Foamy water can be caused by a buildup of organic contaminants like body oils, lotions and cosmetics. It can also be caused by low CH.

Recommended solutions

      Preventative maintenance

      • Shower before entering the pool.
      • Use an hth® algaecide regularly. 
      • Add hth® calcium increaser as needed to maintain 200-500 ppm CH.

      As always, we’re here to help. If you have questions, contact our help line at 1-866-HTH-POOL or talk to our experts with our live chat!


      Please read the following important reminders before adding pool chemicals to water:

      • NEVER mix products together or dissolve before use.

      • ONLY enter pool when FAC levels are below 4 ppm to prevent risk of bodily harm.
