Cleaning and Replacing Your Pool or Spa Filter – Spa & Pool Parts Online

Portable Spas Brisbane

Your portable spa or pool filter is a critical element in the function and longevity of the system. A filter or cartridge filter as they are commonly known is used to pick up smaller particles and stop debris entering the pool or spas main pumping system. If this filter becomes clogged it removes its ability to effectively filter the water through the system and will allow sometimes potentially hazardous particles to stay in the water contaminating the ph levels of the spa. We recommend cleaning the filter every 2 to 3 months or once a month in heavy periods of use. The filter will be held in a cylinder container or sleeve and held in place by screw or clip in motion, refer to your user manual for how to remove the filter correctly.

Once removed, clear any debris from the holding area and give the filter a good clean. The main filter will comprise of a pleated white material that is easily hosed off and cleaned with a light brush to remove anything that could stop the flow of the water. If the white filter area has broken down at all, it’s time to replace your filter. Always turn your spa power off before investigating any mechanical parts or cleaning or replacing your filter. This is not only for your safety, but also to make sure the spa or pool isn’t in the middle of a cleaning cycle while maintenance is taking place. If this happens it could potentially destroy other components of the spa so always ensure all power to the unit is switched off.

At Aqua Pulse Spas we have an extensive range of filters available both for purchase online or via our Slacks Creek showroom. Shop online. If you are not sure of the filter you require, you can check your manual or go online to the manufacturers website to download a copy of it.

DIY Pool Maintenance – Pool & Spa Parts Brisbane & Gold Coast – Filters

Portable Spas Brisbane

When purchasing a pool or spa you will no doubt have many years of use before things can start to go wrong. Our basic maintenance plan will ensure you have all the information you need to ensure the longevity of your spa. At Aqua Pulse Spas our Australian design team implement the most cutting edge technology and incorporate it into high quality manufactured portable spas and saunas giving you peace of mind that the product you have purchased will outlast the rest. We do recommend however keeping yourself familiar with your spa components and inner workings. Sometimes when the water is cloudy even though you have maintained a regular, scheduled program to keep the water levels in the appropriate zones for pristine clear water, it could be something as simple as your filter not picking up smaller particles and clogging, not allowing the water to filter through effectively. Keeping your filter clean is another imperative part of spa and pool maintenance. We recommend giving it a good clean once every two week to keep it free of debris, just by removing it and hosing it off and also using a filter cleaner which requires soaking, to loosen anything potentially clogging it.

At Aqua Pulse Spas we stock a variety of replacement filters, shop online or in store at our Slacks Creek showroom located between Brisbane and the Gold Coast just off the highway, and talk to Michael and Sharyn from Aqua Pulse Spas about all your pool and spa needs.
