Cloudy Hot Tub Water

Sometimes water in a hot tub can go bad. It’s not common, however having 1200 liters of circulating, cloudy and smelly water can be extremely irritating.

Think of a mountain stream. Clear, cold, refreshing. That water is being continuously dragged over the rocks, through the sand, and through the vegetation. That makes it clear and beautiful to look at. We mimic nature in a similar concept with our hot tub water being pulled through the Microfilter many times to help it stay clear.

Elements that contribute to cloudy water

  • Lack of sanitizer
  • Not rinsing your microfilter
  • Unbalanced water
  • Not enough water cycles
  • Old water




Water should be drained every three to four months and shock treated with Chlorine or Bromine about every month. If it’s a heavy bather load, you may need to do both more often.

Beachcomber’s Pure Blue can help coagulate larger particles in the water, pulling them together so that the Microfilter can catch them. All those tiny particles floating in your hot tub tend to make the water hazy or cloudy. That’s why it’s important to keep your Microfilter clean and rinsed.

If you are still unsure about how to clean your water, you can call one of Beachcomber’s hot water experts any time or contact Beachcomber Care.
