Help! The subtitle of this one is: Had Company--Got Disaster.
Four members of my husband's family were visiting this whole week, and got in the tub a few times. I never had time to join them, but I gave them the lecture on scrubbing down first and making sure there was no lotions or soaps or other additives, but--you know how that goes. It's not their tub. Each time they got out, I simply added the right amount of dichlor, and let it filter on it's on.
They left this morning, and I went out to give it an extra little shock before leaving for the day, and I saw that the water was all cloudy again and I thought--"Great, another 3 days of constant filtering and no tub use!". That was nothing. I turned on the jets to filter, with the top off, and when I went back after 15 minutes to close the top, I was horrified to find 3 feet of foamy bubbles caked up on top of the water. No kidding. It was piled high and spilling over the sides like bubble bath in a fountain. It was still blowing them in front of my eyes. I scraped a lot of it off, turned down the jets and don't know what to do now.
Is this water salvageable--or is this a "dumper"??? I know of nothing to remove soap from the water.
BTW: I'm assuming they must have all had soap in their bathing suits--only explanation.
