I didn't realize that gunk collected in the tubing and jet housing etc. I was having
trouble keeping the water sparking even though I was meticulous about its care. Someone
mentioned Swirl Away and I gave it a try. I got really scared after I put it in the water
and turned on the jets. I never saw so much foam in one place in my life. And basically
that was the problem I had to begin with so I was worried I made a big mistake. Evidently
that's how it works because after following the directions, emptying and refilling, I
started having sparkling water again. You know how you scrub the water line and the knobs
and jets? Well that stuff gets in the tubing and all the parts you cant see. Yes Virginia,
Swirl Away works......believe it!!!
We are pretty meticulous in our spa care for the Jacuzzi we inherited with our home purchase 3 years ago. Living in Hawaii, we use the spa year-round. I thought everything was basically ok until we had to shut down for repairs. The water had been cloudy with a foam noticed with the air running. The pH was difficult to maintain. We use bromine tablets and, since I purchased a 50 gallon can of them, will not be changing methods very soon. We also noticed a build up of white styrofoam-like flakes in the pipe area under the filter -- for those with a medical background like me, it looks like an artery with lots of plaque built up narrowing the artery.
After making repairs and fixing leaks, we filled up the spa and added the Swirl Away as directed into the hot water with the air controls off. It created so much foam it was a little scary, but I remembered that someone said it would foam. We drained the water and looked into the pipes below the filter, and discovered that the narrowing had widened. Since there was more there, we decided to repeat the treatment. I was amazed. Not only is the mass inside the pipes I can see gone, but the water is crystal clear and holds the pH great, the spa feels squeaky clean to sit in, the jets have much more power to them, and the motors are now running very quiet. I didn't even have to scrub the tub to get back in it! I would DEFINITELY buy this product -- and recommend it to anyone having difficulty with pH problems or sluggish jets. Maybe the problem is in your pipes!
Great product! It does exactly what it claims to do and more! My spa has always been crystal clear, so I was amazed to see how dirty the water became after I ran the Swirl Away through the system. After draining and rinsing the spa it left the acrylic tub squeaky clean with absolutely no scrubbing. That was a huge time saver! What I found most interesting was I always had excess foaming problems in my spa, even after I drained and refilled it with freshwater. Since I used the Swirl Away, I have little to no foam.
More CHEERS for SwirlAway!
For all you tubbers out there battling the foam problem...Give SwirlAway a try...
I had serious foaming problems even after dumping and refilling. After I used the SwirlAway I have been almost 100% foam free. I never use the Anti-Foaming stuff anymore. Except, that is, when I have a guest that loads up on body lotions before getting in my spa (I'll have to remember to erase that person from the guest list). Anyway, obviously, the dirt and grime that builds up in your plumbing over time is a major contributer to spa foaming.
The other major advantage to it is your spa tub is sparkling clean. No scrubbing! It's works equally well, in whirlpool bath tubs too!
Swirl Away did this
I used Swirl Away spa plumbing cleaner for the first time yesterday. Aside from the gunk that it sent down the drain, there were a couple of surprises. My rotating jets, which were getting a little sluggish, are now spinning quicker than I've ever seen them. The water pressure in the therapy seat, with air on is pushing me out across the tub. It has never been that strong. I am now a believer.
