Are you the proud owner of a Sundance® Spas hot tub? If so, you are likely all too familiar with the wonderful benefits and lifestyle improvements that hot tub ownership can bring. To ensure that you reap the benefits of your spa for many years to come, it’s imperative that you provide the system with proper care. Whether you maintain the hot tub yourself or use the services of your local Sundance® Spas dealership, regular inspections, maintenance, and repair are extremely important.
In this article, we’re going to be taking a closer look at hot tub filters. Read on for everything you need to know about cleaning your hot tub filter, changing the filter, and signs that it requires care.
Signs Your Hot Tub Filter Needs Maintenance
Do you suspect that your hot tub filter needs to be cleaned or replaced? Here are some tell-tale signs that your hot tub filter needs maintenance:
- Your hot tub water isn’t clear
- There is an obvious crack or leak in the filter
- Trouble getting the filter clean
- The filter is easily blocked or clogged
- Reduced flow of water
- Trouble regulating water temperature
If you are noticing any of the above, it may be time for a deep filter cleaning or to replace the filter altogether.
Cleaning Your Hot Tub Filter
You should aim to rinse your hot tub filter with water from the hose once a week and give your hot tub filter a good cleaning about once a month. If you use your hot tub regularly, you may need to clean it every three weeks.
To clean your hot tub filter we suggest stopping by your local Sundance® Spas dealership and finding a filter cleaning product and a large bucket. Following the instructions, fill the bucket with filter cleaner and then dilute it with water. Power down your hot tub and remove the filter, then place the filter into the bucket and allow to soak per the guidelines of the filter cleaning product. You may want to put your backup filter into the hot tub and turn it back on while the filter soaks.
Once the filter has soaked for the correct amount of time, use your garden hose or a filter flosser attached to the hose to rinse the filter before putting it back into the hot tub.
When to Change Your Hot Tub Filter?
It is suggested that you replace your hot tub filter about once or twice a year. This can depend on the usage of your hot tub, cleaning regimen, and how often your hot tub is serviced by a professional. If you aren’t sure if your filter needs to be replaced or not, contact your local Sundance® Spas dealership today.
