Hot Tub Water Filtration
spa care mistakes are caused by poor hot tub water filtration. A filter that's
operating properly helps keep the water clear by capturing the hair,
oils, and cosmetics that wash off when people use the spa. When the
filter is dirty or clogged, all this debris remains in the hot tub
water. Most spas have a cartridge filter. Typically you should clean the
filter every 4-6 weeks. What You Need To Do:
- Remove the cartridge.
with a garden hose to remove loose debris. A hose-end nozzle is best. A
pressure washer has too much pressure. (NOTE: this will not eliminate
the accumulated oils.)
time you clean your filter, use SpaPure Filter Cleaner and Degreaser
according to label instructions. This will dissolve and loosen the
built-up oil and dirt.
- Thoroughly rinse the cartridge again. (Ideally the cartridge should be allowed to dry before being returned to service.)
- Return the cleaned cartridge to the filter housing.
- Replace the filter element as often as the manufacturer or your SpaGuard Dealer recommends.
