Hot Tip Tuesday – How to clean your spa filter

Regular spa pool use requires regular spa pool maintenance. This includes cleaning spa filters on a regular schedule.

Cleaning your filter regularly will ensure the best performance for a clean spa with cleaner water.  Keeping filters clean will also extend the life of the filter and it will be obvious when it is time to replace them by looking out for signs of wear and tear. If it is discoloured of has worn rubber, it may need to be replaced.

How to clean you filters

Turn off the power to your spa pool, open the filter lid and remove the filter or filters.

There are a few methods for cleaning your spa filter.

  1. Use a hose to rinse the filter
  2. Use filter spray or degreaser, then rinse with a hose
  3. Soak the filter in filter spray or degreaser overnight and then rinse with a hose.

Put the filters back in the filter box and turn on the power to your spa pool.
