Hot Tub Filters
There are hundreds of different spa filters on the market so measuring your old spa filter will help you identify the correct replacement filter.
Most hot tub filters are the cartridge filter type, but there are also Diatomaceous Earth filters (D.E.) and sand filters used in some spas.
The cartridge filter is made up of the end cap and casing as well as the actual filter element. The element has a square footage rating related to how much filter media is used in the folded material.
A spa cartridge filter should be maintained so it lasts longer. This includes regular rinsing out with a garden hose. This allows for proper capturing of undesired dirt, hair, oils, particles and other hot tub debris.
The filter can also be soaked overnight in a cartridge filter cleaner especially made for opening up cartridge filter pores.
Spray on filter cleaners are also available. You can have a second filter that is used to rotate the first one out when it is being soaked overnight in filter cleaner.
Do not use any soap based cleaners or you will introduce a high volume of foam and oil into the water. Replace every year or so.
