Orb-3 Antifoam is a natural water-based emulsion that provides long-lasting defoaming persistence. Its food-grade ingredients simply cause water to go flat by lowering its interfacial surface tension and dispersing gasses.

The fast-acting Orb-3 Antifoam formula quickly knocks down ugly foam, making this kind of upset easy to prevent and control in pools, spas, and water features.

FAQ

How can I prevent foam? + -

Orb-3 Antifoam does a great job of quickly knocking down foam, and as long as it is active in the water body, it will continue to work to stop foam.

However, if foam is a common problem, it pays to examine the root cause. Sometimes it is as simple as an air leak in the system; it can also be caused by certain types of chemicals (typically polymers) & algaecides, detergents, low levels of calcium, and most commonly organics in the water. An enzyme treatment can often be a big help in 'purging' the system - removing the gunk in the pipes that is causing water to be cloudy & foamy.

If foam is a constant aggravation, give Orb-3 Pool Enzymes a try in your pool, or Orb-3 Spa Enyzmes for your spa/hot tub. Apply during a maintenance window - if there is a lot of gunk in the pipes, it will purge it all! The good news? Once that gunk is gone, you will likely need to add fewer chemicals to keep your sanitizer at recommended levels, and the water will look, feel, and smell better than it ever has.

How do I figure out how many gallons of water my pool holds? + -
Are there any animal products in Orb-3 Products? + -

The Orb-3 Pool & Spa product line contains no animal product whatsoever. All items are either food-grade or GRAS and are plant derived, mineral based or synthesized. They are non-toxic when used as directed, and do not contain phosphates, sulfates, or paraben; and are gluten free as well.

Whew!

Last weekend, my kids got ahold of the enzymes, put in about 3 times the correct amount and turned on the jets. They thought it was awesome to have 4" of foam on top of the water. I'm grateful I had a bottle of this onhand. The foam was gone within 20 minutes after turning off the jets and adding this product!

Excellent product!

Will be ordering more! I made the mistake of adding Algaecide 60 which has been impossible to remove from my pool water 1 year later. Has caused issues with foaming and horrible chemical odor. Added one pint to pool and within minutes foam was markedly decreased, impressive! Saved me from having to drain and refill large pool and best of all, I was able to apply without using gloves which cannot be said for traditional chemical methods! This treatment was also far less expensive than chemical alternatives! Thank you!!
