  • Foam Free (500ml) – De-foamer

    $17.99
    LEARN MORE
    Beachcomber Foam Free is a rapid de-foamer designed to dissipate and suppress suds and foam in your hot tub water. A squirt of Beachcomber Foam Free will suppress foam instantly on contact.


    Application

    • Shake for best results. Use sparingly.
    • To eliminate foaming, squirt a small amount of Foam Free on the surface of your hot tub water
    • If foam re-occurs after a few minutes, repeat the application
    • Note : if continual foaming occurs, the hot tub may have be drained and refilled with fresh water

    Water Balance Parameters

    Foam is usually an indication of high TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) level, low calcium level or a dirty or plugged filter. If foaming persists, test your hot tub water to see their levels.

    Beachcomber 6 Ways Water Test Strips

    Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) level

    Total Dissolved Solids is a measure of how saturated, tired or well used the water has become in a hot tub. The TDS reading tells you when you can dilute existing water by adding more water, and when you should drain and re-fill your hot tub.

    A TDS level reaching 1500 ppm can produce foam.

    Solution: Drain and start-up fresh or do partial drain and fill with fresh water. Beachcomber Drain&Fill Kit

     

    Low Calcium Hardness

    Calcium levels should be maintained between 150 – 200 ppm; water that has a low calcium hardness level will foam more than harder water.

    Solution: Increase Calcium Hardness level to 150 – 200 ppm by adding Beachcomber Protect.

     

    Bather load

    Any detergent based product that enters the hot tub will cause foam. People and swim suits always have trace amounts of soap, lotion and detergents that are constantly introduced into the hot tub water environment.

    Solution: Eliminate foam by rinsing or cleaning the filter, super chlorinating, or performing a partial or full drain.

    1 25 SQ/FT Microfilter Cartridge, for all Beachcomber hot tubs from 1996 to present

    The microfilter is a critical component to keeping your hot tub water clean and clear. Hidden out of the way in a dedicated and isolated reservoir, microfilters work silently to remove and filter out impurities from the water and protect the pumping equipment 24/7.

    The fabric pleating system is designed to easily filter out impurities to help keep water sparking and clear. Caring for the microfilter will prevent lower water flow and excess tension on hot tub equipment.

    Tips

    • It is recommended that you always maintain 2 microfilters, one to be cleaned and one ready to use.

  • Neutralizer (500ml) – Sanitizer Eliminator

    $23.99
    LEARN MORE

    Beachcomber Neutr-All is a liquid sanitizer eliminator. Called Sodium Thiosulphate in the industry, this product completely disables any active Chlorine or Bromine in the hot tub water. It is so powerful in fact that it will instantly reduce or completely neutralize all the sanitizer – making it very important to follow the correct dosage on the label. Overdosing with Neutr-All can affect the free available chlorine reading on your next fresh fill. Neutr-All makes the hot tub water safe to drain on plants, flowers or grass.


    Application

    • ! Overdosing with Neutr-All can affect the free available chlorine reading on your next fresh fill
    • Before draining your hot tub, test the sanitizer level. Beachcomber 6 Ways Water Test Strips
    • Add 30 ml of Neutr-all per 1000 L of hot tub water to decrease the sanitizer level by 1 ppm – Wait 15 minutes
    • Test the sanitizer level and add Neutr-All to completely eliminate the sanitizer from the water

    Draining 

    Always follow the directions in the Beachcomber Hot Tub Owner’s Guide, for proper draining procedures. One rule to observe when draining is to test the hot tub water to ensure Free Available Chlorine / Bromine is not present. Active sanitizer in your hot tub water can damage grass, plants and the surrounding environment including ground water.

    Never attempt to drain or partially drain a hot tub with source power on. It can be easy to get busy with other things and forget about a hot tub that is being drained slowly. Failing to turn power off can lead to costly damage to hot tub equipment or property, or could cause injury. Ensure that the source power has been turned off before attempting a partial or a full draining procedure.

    Avoid draining a hot tub in the winter; draining or partial draining before cold weather sets in will allow the owner to get through the winter without the need to drain the hot tub.

  • Ph Plus (600g) – pH Increaser

    $10.99
    LEARN MORE

    Beachcomber pH Plus is a granular product that increases the pH of your hot tub water. It effectively increases the pH of pool or hot tub water to keep pH in the correct range. The correct pH range is from 7.2 to 7.8 which will prevent eye irritation, corrosion, scaling and staining, helping to increase the efficiency of the sanitizer.


    Tips

    Application
    • Adjust pH to a range of 7.2 -7.8.
    • Add 4 g of pH Plus per 1000 L of water to increase the pH by 0.2

    Water Balance Parameters

    pH (7.2 – 7.8)

    pH is a measure of how acidic or basic the water is. If the water is below 7.0, the water is acidic. If the pH is above 7.0, the water is basic.Acidic water can cause pitting of the heater element, and can damage the equipment. Basic water forces the calcium dissolved in the water out of solution, causing cloudy water and scaling.The pH also has a dramatic effect on the sanitizer effectiveness in the water. A high pH level results in greatly reduced sanitizer effectiveness.

    Factors that can contribute to a pH change

    Addition of fresh water, rain, bather use, chemicals, dust, algae, neglect, improper testing, a drop in alkalinity, carry-out or splash out, evaporation and body lotions, soaps and oils.

    What to do ?

    • Increase the pH using Beachcomber pH Plus
    • Decrease the pH using Beachcomber pH Minus
    • Increase the pH if Total Alkalinity is low, by adding Beachcomber Resist
