Thread: Build up at waterline.
12-13-2011, 10:40 AM #1
I am getting at light brown to yellow greasy build-up around the water line on my spa. Chemical levels are within limits. I have bought several spa flush products and flushed to spa 3 times. This build-up is greasy and sticky. I am at a loss. I removed the lines going into both pumps and I don't see any build-up. The main circulation pump is starting to make some noise and I was wondering if I could have a seal or bearing going bad leaking oil or grease into the spa. I ask some at a pool supply place and they didn't thinkthat could be the problem. Any help would be appreciated cause I am at a loss.

Since I moved to my location, only about 3 miles from my old house; I've been getting a light brown/yellowish greasy build-up around the water line on my spa. The build up is very sticky and greasy. I was thinking it may have to do with our well water. Our well is 250 feet deep and is a natural artisan well with a high level of iron. At my old house I also had a well but it was only 30 feet deep and the iron level wasn't high at all. Is there something I can use to get reduce the amount of iron in my water? We had a renter who was on our well too and her spa had the same build up so she decided to use bottled water to fill her spa which stopped the build up.
