It’s a well known fact; hot tub owners will usually experience cloudy, milky or foamy water from time to time. However, it’s not something you should worry too much about as it can generally be remedied quite simply. It doesn’t usually have just one cause so you could end up trying a few different methods before you get the result you want. One of the first things you should do is check your filter; it could just need a thorough rinse and then soaking in a filter cleaner such as AquaSPArkle spa cartridge cleaner to rectify the problem. Another cause could be the PH levels are not as they should be. Check the levels of sanitiser as well as high levels can be the cause of cloudy water in some cases.
