FAQ HOT TUBS - CARE ADVICE FOR HOT TUBS

Problems with your water? Check out the points below to solve your problem.

A modern spa often contains up to 100 metres of hoses and pipes. If these are not cleaned regularly, it is difficult to avoid bacteria and dirt in the pipework.

If you ensure that there is enough disinfectant in the bath (bromine and chlorine) - even when you are not bathing - the intervals between pipe cleaning will be longer. As usual, for the disinfectants to be fully effective, the water must be kept in balance (PH and alkalinity).

Unfortunately, forgetting to keep the water in balance and allowing it to stand without disinfectant - even briefly - will inevitably lead to the formation of a layer of biofilm in the bath's pipework.

When biofilm is allowed to grow in pipes and hoses, it creates the perfect breeding ground for bacteria. You will notice the formation of bacteria also through your own senses as there is an acidic odour and also through the visual presence of brown "gel lumps" in the spa.

In view of the above, it is important that 2-4 times a year you add either Delphin pipe cleaner or SpaCare biofilm cleaner during water changes. The products have been developed to effectively remove deposits of skin fat, hair and similar while disinfecting the spa.

The brown edge of dirt that often forms at the waterline after cleaning the pipework can be easily removed with the SpaCare Spaclean Spray.

NOTE! Remember, when adding maintenance products to the spa, the circulation pump (massage pump) should be running, but the air intake should be closed. Your Sannra-Spalock should also be removed to avoid damage.

There are normally three reasons why the water in the spa becomes grey or cloudy:

  • Insufficient filtration. For best filtration we recommend our¬†Sannra‚ĄĘ cleaning-free spa filters.
  • Too high pH or alkalinity - the water is not in balance.
  • Too much organic material from bathers - i.e. improper oxidation. Remember to shower before bathing!
1. Insufficient filtration
There are 2 reasons why the water is not sufficiently filtered. The first is that the filtration cycle is not sufficient, the second is that the filters are clogged.
 

Sannra‚ĄĘ washable spa filters

If you use washable spa filters, they should be cleaned every two to three weeks with a special detergent, filter cleaner. This agent dissolves grease but does not make it lather in your spa. Washable spa filters should be changed and discarded after 12 months at the latest.

Once the filter is clean, even the smallest particles in the water can be removed by adding flocculants.

Sannra‚ĄĘ cleaning-free spa filters

If you use these filters and experience insufficient filtration, it may be time to change the filter. Read more about these popular filters here.

2. PH value or alkalinity is not correct

- Adjust the alkalinity correctly as a first step. Increase the alkalinity by Alka Up (if it is too low) or reduce it by Alka Down (if it is too high).

- Measure the PH value (click here for test equipment selectionTry to stay in the range of 7.0-7.4.

Is the PH value too high? Buy PH-down!
Is the PH value too low? Buy PH-up!

A high pH value results in poor chlorine disinfection, skin irritation, limescale and turbidity.
Low pH results in aggressive water that wears out equipment and irritates eyes and mucous membranes. 

Alkalinity shows the amount of dissolved alkaline salts in the water, such as carbonates, bicarbonates and hydroxides.
Alkalinity is the water's pH buffer. - i.e. the greater the buffer, the greater the water's resistance to changes in pH.

3. Too much organic matter in the water - improper oxidation. 

Once again we are reminded of the importance of showering before bathing. A person who has not showered "pollutes" 200 times more than a clean person who has just left the shower.

Shock treatment the water in the spa according to the dosage on the package. Appropriate shock chlorination is (di-)chlorine powder that SpaCare Minichlor. An excellent option is also Delphin Oxi booster which consists of di-chlorine powder and some oxygen.

If you want to shock-treat without chlorine, use instead SpaCare Spachock or Active Oxygen Granular.

Water naturally contains calcium, which in turn can cause white flakes if the PH level is high (above 7.6).

If you detect white flakes in the water, they can disappear on their own via regular filtration - the possibilities are even greater with our¬†Sannra‚ĄĘ cleaning-free spa filters. When the flakes are large, they stick to the outside of the filter and clog it. To remove the flakes, you need to take the filter out with the circulation off and rinse the flakes off. This usually needs to be repeated a number of times to remove all the flakes. It is likely that there are also calcium deposits in the pipes and the bath. If so, use some of our products that counteract¬†lime.

If the white flakes are not lime, unsuitable care products/chemicals containing too many insoluble substances may have been used.

Advice to avoid white flakes or milky water in the future:

  • Make sure the alkalinity has been adjusted to 80-120 mg/l, so the pH is stable.
  • Check the pH regularly, preferably 2-3 times a week, and adjust to 7.0-7.4.
  • Use SpaCare No Scale¬†or¬†Delphin spa Lime stabiliser¬†to lower the hardness of your bath water and thus reduce the risk of limescale deposits.

CHLORINE

In our experience, chlorine is the most effective and cheapest. Chlorine is also the only substance that both disinfects (kills bacteria) and oxidises the water (burns dirt and grease). This is why we primarily recommend chlorine products in hot tubs. This is to ensure that the bacteria do not survive, so you can enjoy your hot tub without any problems.

If you want to swim without the smell of chlorine, you should try SunWac 9 or Sunvac 12 tablets. The most common practice is to use tablets before/after bathing. The tablets are effervescent tablets so they dissolve after five minutes - and then you can take a bath in the spa.

Depending on how much you bathe, you shock-chlorinate instead of the tablets after bathing, every two or three weeks. The shock chlorine removes chloramines (used chlorine) and other impurities. Very good to occasionally drain some water and refill with new "spa water". If you have a chlorine value of between 1-3mg/l, there can theoretically be no bacteria in the water. Lower chlorine values provide a reduced security for a bacteria-free water and higher chlorine values can instead cause discomfort in the form of chlorine odour and possibly dehydrated skin.

 

BROM IN SPABAD

Can be used advantageously if you have chlorine allergies. A little more expensive than chlorine but very effective compared to other chlorine-free chemicals. The advantage of bromine is also that it provides the same disinfection regardless of pH value. In addition to a basic disinfection with bromine, you should carry out a shock treatment every two weeks with Spa Shock or Spa Chlorine.

Our most popular products SpaCare Bromin tabs and Delphin Spa Brom tabs can be found under the category Spa Brom. Bromine disinfects but the disadvantage of not using chlorine is that chlorine is the only option that both oxidises and disinfects. This means that oxidation must be done via shock treatment when using bromine. As shock treatment with chlorine we recommend SpaCare MiniChlor or Delphin Spa Oxi Booster which is a unique combination of chlorine and active oxygen.

If you want to shock treat the bath without chlorine, you can advantageously choose SpaCare SpaChock Granular or Spa Shock Granules.

 

ACTIVE ACID - Suitable for wooden hot tubs

We recommend using products with active oxygen as a base in combination with an activator. Spa Shock or Spa Shock Tabs 20g together with Spa Shock Support (Algae Killer). In addition to a basic disinfection with active oxygen, a shock treatment should be carried out every two weeks with Spa Klor.

Are you experiencing a decrease in alkalinity and an increase in PH after swimming in the spa?
 
When bathing frequently and for a long time - e.g. 3 * 30 minutes a week with 4-6 people in the spa.
the bathing water can be measured using Scuba 2 or a similar instrument,
experience a decrease in alkalinity and an increase in PH.
 
This is usually due to the following two reasons:
 
1. Organic matter causes the PH of water to rise - so, again, showering is extremely important. 
and wash properly before bathing. 
 
2. The speed of the water increases dramatically as it is pumped out through the nozzles. This causes carbon dioxide (Co2) 
disappears from the water, thus lowering the PH value but reducing the alkalinity. 
 
To summarise, water chemistry is complex and frequent bathing increases the risk of water pollution.
the need to check and adjust pH and alkalinity.

Chlorine

Most effective and cheapest. The most common practice is to use tablets before/after bathing. Depending on how much you bathe, you shock-chlorinate instead of the tablets after bathing, every two or three weeks.

The shock chlorine removes chloramines (spent chlorine) and other contaminants. Very good to occasionally drain some water and refill with new "spa water".

If there are bacteria and/or organic matter in the water, the chlorine and chlorine atoms will "eat" these contaminants. Thus, the chlorine is consumed. It is not uncommon to find that, through this process, the added chlorine disappears immediately.

Add the chlorine. Wait 30 minutes after this and then measure the chlorine value with the test equipment. If you again "measure 0" for chlorine, add more chlorine.

Once all contaminants have been removed, only then will the chlorine remain in the water and the chlorine level will be in the recommended range.

To get clean water, you need to try to achieve the recommended values below.

Whichever disinfectant you use, it is important that the alkalinity and PH value always follow the recommended values.

Start by measuring with one of our testing instrument. Measure chlorine/bromine, alkalinity and pH.

We recommend this starter pack in the form Aquacheck digital reader which is a complete kit to measure your water via test strips.

If you are prepared to go up a bit in price, then our Scuba 2 a good alternative that measures water more accurately and photometrically.

If you want the very best and to measure as well as read values in your mobile phone automatically, you should consider buying a Blue Connect.

The convenient, modern way to cleaner bathing water. Want to know more about the benefits of our popular no-clean spa filters?

Sannra‚ĄĘ no-clean spa filters remove particles down to 1-5 microns compared to traditional washable lamella filters that are unable to remove particles smaller than about 20 microns. The result is simply cleaner and fresher bathing water.¬†Read more...

You never have to wash dirty filters or buy filter chemicals again. After 3 months, simply throw away the filter and insert a new one. Each filter lasts about 3 months of normal bathing. So if you have two filters in your bath, you will change them after about 5-6 months.

Cleaning-free spa filters simplify spa life. The filter is made of spun plastic, porous polypropylene (the same material used in pet bottles).

Should be changed every three months for normal bathing.

If you bathe often and frequently, the filter needs to be changed more often. If you use two filters, change them every 6 months, etc. Provides cleaner bathing water, removes particles down to 1-5 microns. A new washable filter removes particles down to 20-40 microns.

  • Never use flocculants,¬†(Clarifying agent,¬†Bright&Clear,¬†Gentle Clarifier), together with these filters. The filters naturally remove small particles that cause cloudy water.
  • Do not use oil-based fragrances¬†which clogs all kinds of filters.
 

We recommend using an old rinsed filter for 24 hours after changing the water and cleaning the pipes.

There are usually small particles in the new water and there may be residues from the cleaning process that will shorten the life of the filter.

Cleaning the filters is important. The spa filters and filtration play a crucial role in producing clean and fine spa water together with the chemicals. The logic is simply that the more the filter pump is running, the cleaner the water you get.

You should therefore clean the dirty filter cartridge at regular intervals. To do this, remove the filter from the container and rinse off any visible dirt that you see between the discs. After rinsing, place the filter cartridge in a container and add the following ingredients Filter Cleaner according to the dosage instructions on the package.

After soaking in the solution for at least 12 hours, remove the filter and rinse it thoroughly under clean water. Now you have a cleaned spa filter and it is ready for use.

  • Ensure that the filter pump runs for the number of hours specified by the manufacturer. This is usually set at the factory, but depending on how much the owner of the spa bathes, the filtration cycle can be adjusted. Contact the supplier of the spa to find out the facts about your particular model or the answers can be found in the instruction manual.
  • A filter that is too dirty will not work. It is therefore recommended that you have at least 2 filters at home "in stock" meaning that you always have a working one that can be used when the other one is being cleaned.
  • How often should the filter be cleaned? There is no exact answer. Cleaning intervals depend on the amount of load and use of the spa. However, a rule of thumb is to try to clean the spa filter at least once a month.
 

Quick cleaning of washable filters:

Flush the filter so that the water enters properly into the folds of the spa filter. Connect the garden hose to the filter washing. Distribute Delphin spafilter cleaner evenly over the spa filter. Leave to work for 10 minutes before washing the filter with the water walls with water turned on in the hose.

It is a good idea to clean the vinyl on your new spa cover regularly. You should not use sharp brushes or similar on a spa cover, but a soft cloth or microfibre cloth. Be careful not to accidentally flush any soap residues into the bath.

If you want to clean your jacuzzi cover a little more thoroughly, we recommend 303 Marine Multi Surface Cleaner which is an excellent cleaner for the spa cover and the rest of the spa. The cleaner is recommended by Sunbrella, the world's largest manufacturer of fabrics for convertibles, canopies, boat upholstery, etc. This product is completely free of solvents and dyes and is designed to clean all waterproof synthetic, natural, delicate fabrics and materials.

Regardless of which method you use to clean your new Spalock, we strongly recommend that you use this method regularly.
Vinyl protection - 303 Aerospace Protectant which effectively protects the cover and marine vinyl against UV radiation, weather and wind. Just as a car's paintwork benefits from wax / paint sealing, most materials that are exposed to sunlight, rain, etc. benefit from a protective surface and ongoing protective treatment.

For this purpose we recommend 303 - Aerospace alternatively SpaCare Cover Box. A spalock from Sannra‚ĄĘ is designed to exceed the customer's expectations regarding lifespan, but it is possible to extend the lifespan considerably through ongoing maintenance. We believe it is worth taking care of your spa cover as it is a vital part of the hot tub and also a relatively large investment.

The main problem with spa covers is that the insulation discs absorb water. We therefore decided early on that our goal was to sell spa covers with the best vapour barrier on the market. The conclusion was that to achieve this, we needed to produce a spa cover with a moisture barrier made of Mylar. The result and durability of the vapour barrier was outstanding, even if the production cost is slightly higher than when manufacturing a low-budget spalock.

Sharp objects and general neglect of the cover can of course puncture the moisture barrier. But common sense when handling the lid to the spa usually puts an end to unwanted mishaps with the spa lid or failed moisture barrier. Our Sannra ‚ĄĘ spalock from Kuben.se is extremely durable and made for our Nordic climate, "Made for Sweden" as we usually say, but for that reason they are not resistant to any stresses such as nails, knives or are bulletproof.

In addition to the spa lid care we describe above, you can reduce the stress of chlorine gases on spa lids and cushions at the same time as saving energy, two birds with one stone, by buying this product. thermal protection. 

The heat shield floats on the water surface and effectively prevents both heat release and water evaporation through its unique design.

Nothing we recommend. It is usually the moisture barrier that has given way when a lid starts to weigh so much that it can barely be lifted with human power. Moisture has then slowly penetrated the lid until it is finally more or less completely filled with water. Fixing this is not defensible from any perspective but irrational in all respects. 

In short, it will be neither cheap nor good.

Of course, new lid locks are included with your new Sannra ‚ĄĘ spalock from Kuben.se. You can easily, using a screwdriver or screwdriver, replace the old lid locks in a few minutes. If the lid lock, through an accident or similar, breaks in the future, we always have spare parts in stock for immediate delivery. You can find these locks here. The function of the lid lock is of course to prevent the lid from blowing off or to contribute to the safety of children.
to fall into the spa. However, if the spa is located in an extremely windy place, it may be a good idea to leave a plank or other suitable weight across the lid to reinforce the lid locks. Common sense may simply prevail based on your own judgement given the situation.

With a lid lift, the lifespan of the spa is extended. It is easier to remove the lid of the spa and provides a practical "storage" of the spa lid when the spa is used.

At Kuben.se you can buy 2 variants of lid lifts:

Floor-mounted lid lift with gas spring and black painted aluminium tubes.

As well as a cabinet mounted lid lift which is preferable if you have a sunken bath or for your own aesthetic reasons prefer a lid lift for your spalock that is mounted at a different height.

We would like to take this opportunity to warn against bird poo on all types of materials. Especially on car paint, bird droppings should be removed quickly as they are, for some reason, corrosive and can cause stains. The same applies to thermal covers for hot tubs. Don't leave it on the cover unnecessarily. We have spa covers that extend the life of the spa lid and also save energy. Click here to see the options on Spacovers which you can buy on Kuben.se.

Guide 1: Tips and advice for caring for hot tubs - New start, after cleaning and/or water change - what to do?

Basic tips for those who have bought a new hot tub or perhaps bought a house where the hot tub was already in place when they moved in.

A predominant part of water treatment is filtration. We recommend Cleaning-Free Spa Filters, which are superior in user-friendliness and remove smaller particles down to 1-5 microns compared to traditional washable filters, which can only handle up to 20 microns. The result is significantly clearer water!

1. Fill the bath with water. As far as possible, the water you fill the spa with should be of drinking water quality. If you have your own well, we recommend that you use a pre-filter when you fill it up. The next step is to balance the water. 

2. Adjust the alkalinity correctly as a first step. Increase the alkalinity by Alka Up (if it is too low) or reduce it by Alka Down (if it is too high).

3. Measure the PH value (click here for test equipment selectionTry to stay in the range of 7.0-7.4.

Is the PH value too high? Buy pH-minus!
Is the PH value too low? Buy pH-plus!

A high pH value results in poor chlorine disinfection, skin irritation, limescale and turbidity.
Low pH results in aggressive water that wears out equipment and causes irritation to eyes and mucous membranes. 

4. When the water is in balance, start by shock treatment it according to the dosage on the package.
Suitable shock is (di-)chlorine powder that SpaCare Minichlor. An excellent option is also Delphin Oxi booster which consists of di-chlorine powder and some oxygen. 

The combination gives a very good result! Depending on the water quality, you can also lime and metal adjusting products need to be added.

Remove the lid for 10-15 minutes during shock treatment to protect the spa lid.

5. The next step is to choose which running disinfectant to use (chlorine, hum or active acid). Click here for help in making this choice! Do not underdose. Don't be afraid of the chlorine, be afraid of the bacteria!
Always dose according to the instructions on the pack.

Now the bath is finally ready to be enjoyed!

Ongoing basic tips:

Shower well before the spa! Make sure you shower properly before bathing and thoroughly rinse off any soap residue on your body and swimwear. An unshowered person brings 200 times more pollution into the spa than a showered person.

NEVER mix different chemicals

Granules (powdered chemicals) and tablets can be dissolved in a bucket of warm water before being poured into the spa. However, different chemicals should not be dissolved at the same time in the same bucket as toxic gases may be formed. There is no danger when mixed with a few cubic metres of water in your spa.

Swimming pool pipework cleaning

You should change the water in the spa 3-4 times a year and always clean the pipework at the same time. You start by adding the recommended amount of water "Pipe Cleaner" into the existing bath water. Switch on the jet and run the whole system for about 10 minutes before draining the old bath water. Take the water hose and put it against the nozzles to rinse out some extra dirt.
There are funds to cleaning and polishing up the inside of the bath. Drain new water, adjust alkalinity, pH and shock-chlorinate. You now have a new healthy bathing water to enjoy.

Tip 1: If you intend to change the filters at the same time, it may be a good idea to rinse the old filters and use them for the first 24 hours. Otherwise, you risk clogging the new filters with residues from the pipes and the biofilm from the fresh water. 

Tip 2: At the same time, take the opportunity to clean and protect vinyl side of the spalock but remember to carefully rinse off any soap residue so it doesn't get into the spa because then you really get a bubble bath.

As far as possible, you should check your hot tub every week. However, this is not always practical and it is best to follow the advice below:

  1. Check PH value and alkalinity with the test equipment.
  2. Adjust the alkalinity to between 80-120 mg/l and the pH to 7.0-7.4.
  3. Reduce the water temperature slightly for less energy consumption.
  4. Shock the water in the spa according to the dosage on the package.
    A suitable shock chlorination is (di-)chlorine powder that SpaCare Minichlor. An excellent option is also Delphin Oxi booster which consists of di-chlorine powder and some oxygen. The combination gives a very good result! Depending on the water quality, you can also lime and metal adjusting products need to be appointed.
  5. Add long-acting disinfectant. E.g. 40 ml OxyPlus Activator Liquid.

There is absolutely no disadvantage in adding insulation to the spa underneath, even if the spa is already insulated. Whether it is an economically justifiable intervention is difficult to answer in general as it obviously depends on how well the spa is insulated from the factory, current electricity prices, etc. Most baths on the market are well insulated but there are large differences. Some suppliers advertise "happy figures" so make sure that your potential supplier has documented figures that correspond to actual conditions. Ask for a copy of the tests or they probably don't exist.

If you still choose to add insulation, there are various types of cellular plastic or polystyrene boards available for this purpose in well-stocked DIY stores.

Often the location of the spa is already decided in advance. Often the choice falls on an existing area on the terrace or perhaps on a cosy spot on the plot with a special view. Here are some general tips and comments from Kuben.se regarding the location of the newly purchased spa;

Moving a hot tub is difficult. So it's best to think twice before deciding on the final location of your spa. Choose a location that is sheltered, close to heating and showers, and consider whether the location is shielded from view..

A hot tub placed in a strong wind requires more energy to keep it warm. Being close to a shower and heating makes bathing much easier and you don't have to slip or stumble to get in and out of your cosy hot tub. There will be more opportunities for spontaneous bathing and you will probably use the bath more if it is accessible in relation to the main building. Privacy may also be preferable as not everyone wants to greet the neighbours in swimming trunks or swimsuits at every bath.

Location directly on the terrace

A popular option. For obvious reasons. The location of the balcony is often already carefully positioned and adjacent to the building containing the shower and bathroom. The possibility of reaching the spa in a simple and easy way is therefore often good, even in winter when the risk of ice and snow can limit access if the spa is placed too far from the house. Showering before bathing is, as we often describe, very central as a person who has showered pollutes the bath water 200 times less than a person who has not showered. If you choose to install the spa on a decking, you must, if necessary, reinforce it so that it can withstand the total weight of the spa. This means about 500 kg per square metre of bathing surface. If you are not a craftsman or qualified do-it-yourselfer, it is recommended that you consult a craftsman or supplier of hot tubs regarding the installation.

Building a hot tub or jacuzzi into your balcony

The result is usually very elegant, which also contributes to the popularity of this option. The disadvantages include the fact that service work may be more complicated. At least one side of the spa will need to be opened for servicing. A further disadvantage is that the choice of cover lift is limited to the top-mounted option. Worth noting; by building the bath to half the height, you get an easier entry and do not need stairs to the bath.

 

Placing a hot tub indoors

If you intend to place your hot tub indoors, you should ensure that the bathroom or intended location can handle the increased weight of the hot tub. Consult a construction expert on this issue. Ventilation must be designed to cope with the considerable increase in moisture that the spa will bring.

A spa or jacuzzi is normally supplied as a complete, ready-to-use unit and is easy to install. A qualified electrician should connect the electricity through an earth leakage circuit breaker. No permanent water installation is required; water is added using the garden hose.

The substrate must be flat and stable and on a hard surface that can withstand the load of the bath. Ground stone or a stable gravel or macadam bed is recommended. It is then a good idea to place extra insulation between the foundation and the spa. Commonly used is some form of ground insulation alt. Insulation discs such as XPS discs.

Good maintenance procedures and water change habits in the spa are important factors. You can find more detailed information on this below.

Whichever disinfection system you use, you should at least once a week:

  • Measure and adjust the pH to 7.0-7.4.
  • Rinse or clean washable spa filters regularly every two weeks and replace them after about one year of operation. If you want to avoid this step, choose our no-clean filters.
  • Rinse or clean washable spa filters regularly every two weeks and replace them after approximately one year of operation.

This is a time-consuming but essential part of spa and Jacuzzi maintenance. In the plumbing system of the Jacuzzi, grease and dirt build up in a form of film called a biofilm. This biofilm is removed using specialised agents such as Spa Pipe Cleaner or SpaCare Biofilm Cleaner.

Ideally, you should change the water in your spa 2-3 times a year and always clean the pipework at the same time. There are means to cleaning and polishing up the inside of the bath.

  1. Make sure the water level in the Jacuzzi is just above the nozzles. Top up with the water hose if necessary.
  2. Remove the filter cartridge and also the neck pads if possible.
  3. Add Spa Pipe Cleaner or SpaCare Biofilm Cleaner. Dose according to the instructions on the packaging.
  4. Start all massage pumps and let the pumps run for 10-20 minutes. However, switch off the air exhaust (depending on the Jacuzzi or spa model).
  5. You will find that it gets very dirty on the surface and in the bath. Wipe the inside of the bath where the dirt has accumulated.
  6. Empty the bath and wipe it clean with rags or fibre cloths.
  7. Fill the bath with clean water.
  8. Check the PH value
  9. Shock chlorinate or add another disinfectant according to the instructions on the packaging (bromine, chlorine or active oxygen).

Tip 1: If you intend to change the filters at the same time, it may be a good idea to rinse the old filters and use them for the first 24 hours. Otherwise, you risk clogging the new filters with residues from the pipes and the biofilm from the fresh water. 

Tip 2: At the same time, take the opportunity to clean and protect vinyl side of the spalock but remember to carefully rinse off any soap residue so it doesn't get into the spa because then you really get a bubble bath.

Spray on Vinyl protection 303 the cover will have a longer life span. Make it a routine to do this in connection with the above-mentioned procedure for changing the water in the Jacuzzi.

Leave to work for 10 minutes before washing the filter with the water walls with water turned on in the hose.

Clean your filter in one minute!

If you don't have a filter cleaner like this, this is usually done with a garden hose in combination with a filter spray as described above. The dirty water often sprays uncontrollably in all directions. Estelle's spa filter cleaning system can help you clean your filter quickly, easily and in an environmentally friendly way without chemicals. Insert the filter cartridge to be cleaned into the cleaning device and connect it to a water connection via a hose. Open the tap. The dirty cartridge filter is set in rotation by the water jet. The dirt is flushed out by the directed jet between the lamellas and thrown away by centrifugal force. You can change the direction of rotation with the rotary knob on the side to rinse the spa filter thoroughly from both sides. The large, transparent cover protects you from dirt and water splashes. This allows you to clean the filter cartridge in the bathroom, basement or garage. The dirty water can run off through the integrated drain. Buy it by click here.

The cartridge filter is thoroughly cleaned for about one minute and then clean again.

Highly recommended for those who want to avoid the above step of difficult and time-consuming cleaning of the spa filters.

This is simply the convenient, modern way to cleaner bathing water. Sannra‚ĄĘ no-clean spa filters remove particles down to 1-5 microns compared to traditional washable lamella filters that are unable to remove particles smaller than about 20 microns. The result is simply cleaner and fresher bathing water.¬†

You'll never have to wash dirty filters or buy filter chemicals again.

After 3 months, simply discard the filter and insert a new one. Each filter can handle about 3 months of normal bathing. So with two filters in your bath, you will change after about 5-6 months.

Cleaning-free spa filters simplify spa life. The filter is made of spun plastic, porous polypropylene (the same material used in pet bottles).

Should be changed every three months for normal bathing. If you bathe frequently and with many people, the filter must be changed more often.

Never use flocculants (Clarifier, Bright&Clear, Gentle Clarifier) with these filters. The filters naturally remove small particles that cause cloudy water.

Also, do not use oil-based fragrances that clog any type of filter.

We recommend using an old rinsed filter for 24 hours after changing the water and cleaning the pipes.

There are usually small particles in the new water and residues may continue to come out of the pipework even after cleaning, shortening the life of the filter.
