Filters are a hot tub user’s best friend. With the help of pumps, they work to keep your water pure and clean with very little maintenance necessary. There is some cleaning needed to keep your filter working as efficiently as possible, though. To make the process of cleaning your filters even easier than it already is, we offer some filter accessories that should make cleaning your filters a breeze.
ThermoSpas’ Spa Filter Clean is the staple of your filter-cleaning regime. Every hot tub owner should own a cleaner that is specifically designed for filters to ensure that their filters are being properly and efficiently cleaned. The better your filter is cleaned, the longer it will last. Our cleaner is specially formulated to eliminate suntan oil, grease, and scales and mineral deposits from spa filters of all kinds.
Cleaning your filter with Spa Filter Clean is simple and should be done every two to three months. First, take out the filter and replace it with a spare one. Next, thoroughly rinse the filter with a garden hose to get rid of large debris. After that, soak it in a solution of Filter Clean and water for 12 hours. When time’s up, remove the filter from the solution and replace your spare filter cartridge with it. That’s all it takes to thoroughly clean your filter.
This easy-to-use cleaner can be utilized in between thorough filter cleanings with Spa Filter Clean to help make your filters last even longer. In fact, you can double the lifespan of your filter when you properly clean it every few weeks with ThermoSpas’ Instant Cartridge Filter Cleaner. This cleaner breaks down invisible grime and oils that collect on your spa filter without affecting your water chemistry, allowing for improved water pressure on your jets.
The Instant Cartridge Filter Cleaner is incredibly easy to use. First, thoroughly rinse your filter cartridge with hose water to remove any debris or loose matter. Then, while the cartridge is still wet, spray Instant Cartridge Filter Cleaner on the total surface area. Allow the filter to set for three to five minutes. After this short period of time, thoroughly rinse it with hose water again, and reinstall the filter cartridge.
If you want to make cleaning your filter even easier, consider purchasing ThermoSpas’ Water Wand Filter Cleaner. Unlike your hose, this magical device reaches between the pleats of your cartridge with eight pleat-separated fingers and a high-pressure nozzle, allowing for a more thorough clean. The Water Wand Filter Cleaner allows you to clean any hot tub or pool pleated cartridge in less times using less water.
ThermoSpas’ Filter Flosser is the ultimate filter-cleaning tool. This device is specifically designed to unleash a powerful spray that reaches between the pleats of your cartridge to blast away dirt deposits. Even better, Filter Flosser can be used on the entire hot tub area. It’s great for power washing your spa cabinets, steps and even walkways.
