Hot Tub Filter Care
The Dirty Truth: Many hot tub service calls are due to poorly maintained hot tub filters.
The spa filter plays a crucial role in the upkeep of your hot tub, which is why we recommend that you change your spa filter once per year.
Hot tub filters help keep the spa water clean, and thus protect your health. It also protects several expensive spa parts. Dirty hot tub filters can even void our warranty, so it is well worth checking and cleaning your spa's filter once or twice per month, and changing the filter once per year.
When To Change Your Filter
Filters can be expensive, so before you decide to change your spa filter, we recommend you inspect the one you currently have to truly decide whether its time to replace it. Here are a few tips to help you discern whether or not your filter needs to be changed:
It is recommended that you replace your spa filter on a yearly basis. Depending on your use of the spa, the upkeep of the spa water, and how often you clean your filter, a spa filter may be able to last a little over a year.
If you have a filter that is nearing two years old, or is older than two years, you should throw it away no matter how it may look. The fibers on the filter pleats wear down with time and will fail to pick up dirt and debris. Buying a new filter year after year may seem expensive, but doing this helps eliminate the possibility of having to replace a very expensive pump.
If you can’t get your filter reasonably clean it is time to replace it, no matter how old it is.
If the filter core is damaged, replace the filter.
It is important to take very good care of your hot tub, and paying attention to changing the filter is a pivotal part of maintaining the hot tub. It’s always best to keep a spare filter on hand, while cleaning a dirty one. Don't fall victim to unnecessary spa repairs!
