Filter Cleaning And ReplacementUpdated 5 months ago

Filters should be cleaned at least once per week, but as a rule wash them thoroughly with a garden hose anytime filters start to look brown in colour like in this video   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tg5U4XKNLrg

Filters should be replaced WITH NEW EVERY 4-6 WEEKS. Filters older than this may appear clean but the paper pleats will begin to break down, restricting flow and likely causing heating errors or flow errors to appear on your touchpad/smart control.                             

RECYCLING FILTERS WILL EVENTUALLY NOT WORK AND WILL CAUSE ISSUES WITH YOUR SYSTEM

Good practice is to skim any hair, lint, leaves etc out of the pool as soon as you see it and to turn off the heater/filter when removing the filter to clean or replace it. This avoids inadvertently sucking any debris through the system. Debris unknowingly sucked inside the control unit can interfere with the inlet and outlet flow switches, as seen below, and will result in flow errors.


120 Pleat Filters can be purchased here


Our entire spa range now runs on the 120 pleat filters. The 90 pleat has been discontinued. The cartridge base is built into the 120 pleat so is no longer required as a separate accessory
