Four Types of Filters
Waters Choice Pleated Filters
Pleated filters are designed to be cleaned regularly and last about a year. Our filters are made of a heavier filter media for improved filtration and longer life.
Clean your filters weekly for the first 6 weeks with our products then twice a month after that. Use a garden hose with a good nozzle.
It is a good practice to have a spare on hand and rotate filters. Do not let a filter dry dirty.
Turbo Ion Exchanging Pre-Filter
The Turbo Ion Exchanging Pre-Filter is a valuable addition to your hot tub setup. Here are just a few of its attributes:
- Removes scale, calcium, magnesium, iron, lead, copper and other heavy metals including chloramines, hydrogen sulfide and many other harmful contaminants.
- Prevents floating flakes, unsightly stains, and nasty smells.
- Reduces the demand on sanitizer and protects heater from burnout.
- Higher quality fill water is better for you and your equipment.
The beauty of the Waters Choice Disposable Filter is that you never have to clean it! Simply insert the filter in the filter area and leave it. Check the filter at 2 months. The lifespan of a disposable filter is approximately 3 months and should be replaced at that time to ensure optimal filtration. Never try to clean or rinse.
Top Filter Saver
This filter is designed to fit on top of the basket under the floating weir that is in many of the spas built today. Keep in mind that this filter can plug very quickly and stop the flow of water through the main filter. If the filter is left in the spa, no filtration will be happening, and the water could go bad very quickly. WARNING: Do not use the Filter Saver Top if your spa uses a circulation pump to pull the water through the filter. These pumps are not strong enough to pull through the Filter Saver Top after it starts to get dirty and will not give the results you want.
Bottom Filter Saver 5"
This filter is designed to go over the lower intake in the foot well of most spas. With these filters in place you can filter out the heavier particles that fall to the bottom of the spa and do not get collected by the skimmer. WARNING: Most spas have two intakes for each pump. DO NOT COVER BOTH INTAKES TO A PUMP. If you do this and forget them they will stop the flow of water to the pump when they get dirty and this can cause damage to your system.
