A line of brown scum can be caused either by excess body fats or when water contaminated with chlorine has been added to your tub.
Add a Chlorine Remover and run the pump on auto.
Foaming is usually caused by either incorrect water balance or an excess build up of body fats in the filter cartridge or pipe work.

Hot Tub Water Care & Maintenace
Taking care of your tub is simple and important to keeping your water clean and the tub running well. Good tub maintenance involves regularly cleaning the cover and filter of your tub, checking the water mineral levels and adding the right water treatment products as needed. It is especially important to maintain the right water mineral levels because your pump equipment will corrode if too high and bacteria can take over if the levels are too low. Simple cleaning of your cover as well will help keep your tub working better longer and protect from bad bacteria and germs. Overall, regular attention to your tub maintenance will keep your hot tub water sparkling and inviting for all bathers.
