Hot Tub Water Filtration

Many 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:

  1. Remove the cartridge.

  2. Rinse 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.)

  3. Every 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.)

  4. Return the cleaned cartridge to the filter housing.

  5. Replace the filter element as often as the manufacturer or your SpaGuard Dealer recommends.

  6. Use SpaPure Water Clarifier weekly. Some particles of debris are microscopic and too small for the filter to catch. Water Clarifier will help join these tiny particles together and allow the filter to remove them, keeping the water clear. SpaPure Water Clarifier is compatible with all spa chemical programs.
