MONTHLY MAINTENANCE Cleaning the Filter: Filtering is done by pumping water through the fine polyester mesh of the filter. As water flows through the filter, suspended particles become trapped on its surface.
It is necessary to remove the filter and clean the cartridge surface, generally every 4 weeks, depending on usage and water quality. Cleaning is accomplished by washing all the entrapped dirt from the filter with a garden hose with a high-pressure nozzle.
Occasionally, the cartridge will need a more thorough cleaning to remove oils and grime from its surface. Turn power to the spa off before removing the cartridge. Clean with a medium-pressure nozzle, then place the cartridge in a container, soaking the cartridge 3 to 6 hours or overnight in filter-cleaning solution or a similar filter-cleaning product.
The average life expectancy of the filter cartridge is approximately 1 to 2 years with proper care and water quality maintenance.
EVERY 2 TO 3 MONTHS Draining the Spa: Attach a garden hose to the drain tap/hose bib located in the equipment cabinet of your spa. Open the drain tap/hose bib and let the water drain (this will take approximately 2 to 4 hours depending on the size of your spa) and clean the inside surface of your spa. Do not use any soap products or abrasive cleansers.
Refill spa with fresh water, refer to start-up instructions. Obtain a water sample and have it tested. At this time your water must be rebalanced to protect your investment.
See your dealer for regular water tests and information on keeping your spa water balanced.
