How can I tell when a Filter Cartridge needs to be replaced?
With no moving parts or electrical switches to fail, Filters Cartridges do not have a defined end-of-life. Instead media will gradually plug up over time.
In a typical spa or hot tub, the culprit that plugs the filter cartridge media is perspiration and body oils combined
with soaps, chemicals and very fine particulate.
In a swimming pool, the loading is primarily debris along with suntan lotions and organic
matter such as algae.
Assuming the Filter is properly maintained and correctly sized to the pump, determining when
the Filter Cartridge is exhausted depends primarily upon three factors:
Shorter cycle time between cleanings,
Low water flow rate and high differential pressure,
Catastrophic failure such as a tear in the filter cartridge media or center core collapse.
All three are dependent upon proper pool or spa water chemistry and following a routine
maintenance schedule. Filter elements are plastic and should be handled and maintained accordingly.
How do I maximize the life of a filter cartridge?
Clean the filter elements per manufacturers cleaning instructions
Never use a stiff brush to clean the media
Maintain your pool or spa water chemistry in proper balance
Alternate two sets of filter cartridges when cleaning
For swimming pools, clean the cartridge when filter canister pressure reaches 8 PSI above the
initial system or new cartridge starting pressure. For spas, establish a routine
cartridge cleaning schedule based on the amount of spa usage. An ideal routine would be at least
once per month unless clear cleaning instructions are provided by the Original Equipment Manufacturer.
