Keeping Your Hot Tub Sanitary
Because hot tubs are pools of hot water, they can become a breeding ground for algae, and other organisms that love warm water. The tub works to clean itself by moving the water around and disrupting organisms from being able to settle and reproduce, however, the true warrior of your hot tub is the filter. Like any cleaning device, the hot tub filter needs to be replaced after some use. This is when you should visit our hot tub store in Exton, PA to purchase a new filter.
What is the Lifespan of a Hot Tub Filter?
Filters typically last anywhere from two years to five years. Its lifespan largely depends on how often you clean it. Just like any kind of filter, they become clogged over time. They can also start to degrade if organisms and debris are left on the membrane. Thoroughly cleaning your filter once a week or every other week can increase the lifespan of your filter.
Another factor that determines the lifespan of your filter is how often you use your tub. The more that you use the tub, the more likely your filter is going to be working to keep the tub sanitized.
Covering your tub is another way that allows you to extend the lifespan of your filter. By keeping the tub covered when you’re not using it, you’re ensuring that leaves, bugs, and other organisms don’t have easy access to the water. The filter will have less to clean out and keep living longer.

The type of hot tub you choose will determine the type of filtration used. The hot tubs sold by our company have the highest-quality hot tub filters available.

Consider Your Water
One last factor to consider when determining how often you need to change your filter is the quality of your water. Those who have hard calcium, for example, will need to change out their filter more often. Calcium can quickly start to clog the filter and even destroy it. There are a few specialty filters you can purchase to help purify your water and extend the filter’s life.
