Routine Hot Tub Filter Cleaning
Depending on how hot your climate is in Prince George and Red Rock surrounding areas and how often you use your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub you should generally be doing a routine hot tub filter cleaning bi-weekly. Simply remove your filter from your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub and replace it with a clean and dry replacement. You should always have an extra filter to replace it with during routine filter cleaning.
Your bi-weekly hot tub filter cleaning doesn’t have to be very in depth. Simply use a garden hose and water to rinse out the filter. You can add additional attachments to your hose like the Microfiber Spa Pre-Filter to prevent contaminants in your hose water from entering your spa or filter. You are looking to clear out debris like hair, bugs, leaves and dirt among other various fragments. You should also use this time to clean your hot tub filter paper as well. Keeping these parts clear of debris on a regular basis can benefit the longevity of your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub and keep costs low.
Thorough Hot Tub Filter Cleaning
You should aim to completely drain and clean your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub once every three to four months. This will ensure that your water is clean and hot tub is running efficiently. With regular thorough cleaning every several months you will be able to spot, keep an eye on and treat any possible problem areas. You should take this time to do a thorough cleaning of your hot tub filter. For this cleaning routine you should seek the assistance of Jacuzzi® Hot Tub filter cleaning chemicals. Soaking your filter overnight using Jacuzzi® Hot Tub filter cleaning products will ensure an ultimate clean. Following the overnight soak you should rinse and allow the filter to completely dry. Once the filter’s dry, you can swap it back out with your extra filter and refill your hot tub.
Ongoing Hot Tub Maintenance
Regular filter cleaning will help keep the water clean and put less stress on other parts of the Jacuzzi® Hot Tub. If your filter is dirty it won’t do its job properly, meaning that your pump is going to work harder to clean the water. This stress not only puts other parts of your hot tub at risk for needed repairs, but may also result in a higher electricity bill.
