Hot Tub Buying Guide


Clean your filter in the dishwasher?

You know that you need to clean your filters once a month. Did you know that some people have two filters that they rotate so they are never without a clean filter? This will help ensure that nothing can get in the way of a much-needed soak in the hot tub. You purchased your hot tub to use. . . so don't let filter cleaning prevent you from soaking.

So, about once a month, give your filters a good cleaning. And be sure to clean it whenever you drain and refill the tub. No sense refilling the tub with clean water to have it run through a dirty filter.

You have heard that some people clean their hot tub filters in the dishwasher. Maybe you think this is crazy. Maybe you are one who does it. It can be done. But please, use come common sense. Wash the filters alone in the dishwasher. Be sure to remove all plates, utensils, glasses, bowls and anything else that you run through the dishwasher. Be sure to rinse the filter with a garden hose before. You want to get all the loose debris out before placing the filter in the dishwasher. Also, no need to use detergent. The water and pressure should be enough to loosen the remaining debris. Transport the filter to and from the hot tub in a bucket to avoid leaving a trail of water throughout the house. Do this even in the dishwasher is close to a door. There is no need to drip water in the house. We all know the lady of the house might not be too keen on a filter in the dishwasher in the first place, so let's keep a mess out of the situation.

Once the dishwasher cycle is complete and the filter has been transported back outside, give it a final rinse with the house before replacing it back into the hot tub. You want to be sure to get all the debris out of the filter. It wouldn't hurt to take a look in the back of the dishwasher to see if any debris is on the screen there in the back - unless you have a newer dishwasher that automatically rids itself of those small scraps. Lucky you.

Usually a rinse with the hose, a soak in a bucket and another rinse is good enough to dislodge debris in a hot tub filter. But if you feel the need, go ahead and run that filter through a dishwasher cycle and get that tub back up and running.
