Answers to Basic Pool Questions


What is it?

Foam can be caused by applying a foaming algaecide in pools with jetted returns, attached spas or water features. Foaming can also be caused by a foreign contaminant such as soap or oil entering the pool or the build-up of organic contaminants in the pool water. Foam should dissipate over time, but the use of anti-foaming agents will help clear the foam much more rapidly.

To eliminate foaming:

  • Apply Anti Foam​ to get rid of foam quickly
  • Add Pool Tonic™​ to remove contaminants that may be causing the foam

To prevent foaming:

  • Switch to a non-foaming algicide such as Banish®
  • Shock/oxidize routinely
  • Add Pool Complete™ to your maintenance routine to reduce contaminant levels
