You lift up your cover and what do you see?

…Bubbles and not the good kind!


You try to scoop out the bubbly foam out and yet, the bubbles just keep coming back. Leaving you questioning how did this happen? An onset of the suds are annoying and can come out of the blue. Yet, with the right steps this can be prevented! Before you start dumping expensive chemicals into your spa consider these tips to help freshen up your water keeping it crystal clear!

1.Consider Your Detergent

More often than not, our bathing suits and swim trunks are the culprits to what is causing the suds in your tub. When you use too much detergent or fabric softener in your washing machines cycle, this can cause the excess soap to not wash correctly, resulting in leftover residue in clothes and your machine.

Combine leftover detergent residue with the power of our jets, and you have yourself a foaming Strong Spa on your hands. Consider using less detergent on your next load of laundry next time – you’ll be surprised with the outcome!

2.Body Products

Shampoos, conditioners, body washes – these all affect the chemical balance in your water! The more beauty products you use, the more likely buildup can occur. This build-up could lead to a sudsy situation.

Try to rinse off your body before you head into your tub to minimize the residue you introduce into your spa! In addition, regularly rinse or replace your filters to be proactive against product build-up.


Spilled your sweet tea? How about your wine or beer? While there is nothing wrong with indulging in some ice-cold drinks, spilling drinks however, can lead to foaming water inside your Diamond Series Spa!

Make sure you utilize your cup holders to minimize your risk of spilling! Turn on your LED lights located around your cup holders as well to make sure you don’t misplace your drink!

4.Cheap Water Chemicals

We all love saving money! However, with cheaper chemicals comes more buildup of body oils and dead skin. Spa chemicals are something not to skimp out on. Cheap chemicals could lead to costly damage, or needing to invest in more products to be used to clean your spa. On our online Strong Spas store, we have all the chemical products you need to shock, treat, and maintain a healthy and cost-effective water treatment system with your spa. Using the right products, the first time ensures fewer chemicals purchased over time and a healthier water system that is better for your skin! This saves you time, money, and an overall better spa experience!

5.Poor Water Maintenance

Low calcium hardness could be terrible for your motors and equipment, which can also lead to bubbles forming in your tub. Make sure you test your calcium levels frequently Test strips help to accurately test your water levels in one, easy step!

Whether your levels are low or high, the management of your pH level is extremely important. Imbalanced levels can lead to a foamy tub. Making sure to keep an eye on your pH levels to ensure a clean tub for future use.


When you invest in a Strong Spas spa, you can be confident you’ll enjoy a peak hydrotherapy experience that’s heavy on both relaxation and fun and takes the stress out of your hectic days.

It’s a great lifestyle choice that will add a healthy dose of wellness and fulfillment to your life, as well as your family and friends or whomever you choose to share your Strong Spas experience with.

To achieve optimum performance and longevity from your Strong Spas hot tub, you’ll want to be sure to take care of it with regular maintenance. That’s only common sense and we’re sure that’s your intention.

We also understand that things can get away from you. Cleaning and maintenance of your spa may fall through the cracks in your busy and connected life. You may go too long in between your spa cleanings, water treatment, or general upkeep.

Next thing you know, the water in your spa can appear to be discolored — that’s algae — or you’ll have a mold or mildew problem that can be slime on your spa shell or discolored patches.

Don’t worry, it’s not too late to correct things. But we strongly suggest not putting off any longer taking care of the issues and going into cleaning and correction mode.

At the first sign of algae, you’ll want to shock your spa water with a sanitizer. You may have to take the next step, however, and drain your spa and thoroughly clean it to include the jet nozzles and the filter. Your filter may also need to be replaced.

These are the basic steps you can take to correct any algae, mold, or mildew problems that have unexpectedly reared their ugly heads.

There’s one thing you can do, however, that is virtually a foolproof way of ensuring your Strong Spas experience will always be top shelf. It’s something that’s obvious, but also takes commitment and consistency.

The best way to deal with algae, mold, and mildew in your spa is prevention. It’s doing the little things, like checking water quality before you use your spa by using testing strips to measure alkalinity and pH levels. You can then easily correct these issues by balancing the chemicals.

Another little thing to fight the onset of algae, mold, mildew, or bacteria is something you should do occurs after you use your spa: Be sure to add a sanitizer.

Beyond that, get into a regular maintenance routine. Things like clean the filter thoroughly once a month and put some elbow grease into cleaning your spa cover — both sides.

Then two or three times a year, depending on frequency of use and how many people are using your spa, you can drain your spa, scrub it, and then refill it.

Another little thing to consider is to have an annual maintenance inspection by a professional. This is simply to ensure you’re not having any major or minor problems and to prolong the longevity of your spa.

The important thing to remember is that you’ve made an investment when you purchase a Strong Spas spa. Love it, care for it and it will love and care for you right back.
