Hot Tub Filters
Having trouble maintaining your hot tub water at the quality you would like it? Maybe it is time to see how your hot tub filter is working for you.
The most important thing when it comes to having high quality hot tub water is your filtration system. If your filter is worn out or clogged it will not do its job of filtering the contaminants out which then puts strain on your spa’s pump and heater.
Your hot tub filter cartridge should be rinsed and cleaned every two weeks to monthly depending on the spa usage. In order to clean the filter you will want to pressure wash it at a 45 degree angle with your garden hose both inside and out in order to make sure it is clear of all dirt and debris. Spray between each pleat to ensure that all foreign material is cleared. The filter flosser is a great attachment for your garden hose to ensure the filter gets a deep clean. It can also help you clean your filter 50% faster & using 50% less water and it also virtually eliminates back-splash.
Some particles such as algae, suntan lotion, and body oils may not be able to be removed just by hosing the filter. These contaminates can clog the filters pores leading to greatly reduced filtration. In order to rid the filter of such contaminants you will want to use a cleaning compound such as SpaPure Filter Cleaner. It works overnight. A 12 to 14 hour soak of your filter will assure complete removal of all contaminants including those that may have been deeply set. SpaPure Filter Cleaner is compatible with chlorine, bromine, and biguanide sanitizers.
Hot tub filters should be replaced annually. Many people also prefer to use the rotation method of keeping a spare clean dry filter on hand all the time to immediately replace the one being removed for cleaning. This will help your filters last longer and you will never lose a minute of usage in your spa while waiting to clean a filter.
