How to Remove and Prevent a Scum Line on Your Spa
May 21st, 2014
After heavy usage in a spa, contaminants such as dirt, oil and even bacteria can accumulate at the waterline. It is therefore important to clean the spa surfaces regularly to preserve the surface and to keep the spa looking and feeling clean.
The most appropriate product to use to clean the oil ring that forms at the waterline is Squeaky Clean. The fast acting product breaks down the oils and debris enabling you to wipe away any scum line more easily. Most importantly squeaky clean is compatible with your spa’s chemistry.
Directions are easy:
- Simply spray or apply to a damp sponge or soft brush and scrub spa surface at the waterline.
- Rinse treated surfaces thoroughly.
- To remove heavy stains, allow cleaner to soak on the stain for 5-10 minutes before scrubbing and rinsing.
Prevention of Scum Lines
The most effective way to decrease your chances of a scum line is to always shower prior to using your spa. Sweat, make-up, dirt and anything else that is present on your body will transfer to the spa water. Be carefully when drinking or eating in a spa also, as fats and oils from these products will produce a scum line also.
A spa disk is a great spa accessory that floats in the spa. The disk can reduce a scum line build up by absorbing surface oils and grime. It can also improve the filter performance.
