How to Choose the Right Hot Tub Filter
Any reputable hot tub dealer will tell you that an old, dirty or clogged hot tub filter is quite often the main reason for a service call. And while industry experts recommend that the hot tub filter be changed at least once a year, it’s not certain that everyone listens. A clean hot tub filter protects the hot tub, safeguards your health, and benefits your bank balance. True enough, a dirty hot tub filter can void a warranty.
It makes sense to check the hot tub filter at least monthly – it should just be a routine part of regular and ongoing maintenance. This is not the right time to be lazy or take shortcuts – a damaged hot tub pump is far more costly than a hot tub filter. Today, with Internet access, it’s very easy to search for a hot tub filter, available from a reputable manufacturer who guarantees the quality and lifespan of their product.

And with a hot tub dealer like Seaway Pools & Hot Tubs, its even easier – they have a trained and qualified team of pool experts who can with help out. They supply and install replacement parts for both pools and hot tubs, and can provide valuable advice for those who prefer the DIY approach.
