Spa Filter Cartridge Care & Replacement
For perfectly crystal clear spa water, it is imperative that you clean and replace your spa filter cartridge. This should be taken out of the hot tub every 2-3 weeks and hosed down. It is a great idea to have at least two so that you can soak one in a bucket for long periods, whilst still being able to use your spa.
When cleaning hot tub filters, DO NOT use a high pressure hose or scrub with a brush. Use a specially adapted filter brush hose attachment. Also DO NOT use regular cleaning products such as liquid soap from your kitchen, as these can sometimes corrode and damage the filter material. Use a special filter cleaning liquid.
These extra tools increase the life of expensive filter cartridges, so you change them less often and save money. Soaking your filter in an approved filter cartridge cleaner every 2-3 months is strongly advised.
However, over a period of time your spa filters will gradually block up and will need replacing. How long this takes will depend on the spa filter quality, size, demand and usage. With even the best filters, a regularly used hot tub will require changing filters within a year, but can last up to 2 years. Low spec filters, such as those provided for cheap pools and inflatable spas often need changing far more frequently, but these filters are usually much cheaper.
A blocked spa filter cartridge can put pressure on your pump and motor and decrease the life of these hot tub parts. Correct attention to filter maintenance will save time and aggravation.
