Nothing is more essential for hot tub or pool water quality than your filtration system.
A filthy, clogged or old filter will fail in its job of trapping contaminants. Old filters also put strain on your spa’s pump and other equipment, which can waste energy dollars and reduce water circulation. Clean your filters with every water change and replace them annually to protect your warranty and reduce unnecessary service calls.
A fresh hot tub filter helps protect your health AND your wallet. Who wants to buy replacement spa parts when that money could be saved. Dirty hot tub filters can even void your warranty. So, it pays to check your spa filter once or twice a month.
If your spa filter is more than two years old, you should take time to replace it, no matter if it “looks” like replacement it required. This is because your hot tub filter is made of a fibrous material that gradually loosens over time creating ever-larger spaces for particles to push through and gunk up your pump. Hot tub pumps are way more expensive than spa filters.
