A clean filter means clear and sparkling spa water
Sometimes people ask us why their spa water is cloudy, especially after heavy bather loads. Usually, this is due to poor water filtration and most of the time the spa filter is in need of a good clean. In order to keep your spa water clean and sparkling, you need to have your spa filter doing the best job possible. If your spa filter is clogged up with debris and body oils it simply cannot effectively filter your spa’s water and causes your spa pump to work harder.
The Crystal Clear Spas natural spa system relies on circulation and filtration to maintain healthy, clean, clear water. To keep your spa filter working optimally you need to clean your filter thoroughly at least once a week with moderate pressure water from your garden hose, ensuring that you get into each individual pleat. On top of that, each month soak your filter in a solution of white vinegar and water, which helps to break down embedded dirt, before rinsing thoroughly.
After a while, the spa filter cartridges get worn and can no longer effectively filter your spa water despite weekly cleans and monthly soaks. This means that your filter cartridge needs replacing, ideally every 18 months to 2 years. This way you will ensure optimal filtration of your spa water and the best performance of the Crystal Clear Spas purification system. For best results please use standard pleated filters.
It is also important that your spa filtration system is run for at least four hours a day in order to allow for an adequate amount of circulation. Following these guidelines will ensure you experience clean, clear water using Crystal Clear Spas.
If your spa water is particularly cloudy after a heavy bather load, shock your spa with a non-chlorine shock to speedily oxidise organic contaminants. Clean your filter and turn on your filtration system for a couple of hours.
Remember, it is almost impossible for your spa water to stay clean and sparkling if your filter is dirty, or old and worn out!
- Hose out your filter weekly
- Soak your filter monthly
- Replace your filter every 2 years at least
Follow these guidelines and you will be sure to enjoy pristine spa water all year round.
