Filter maintenance is an essential part of taking care of your Master Spas hot tub or swim spa. But whether you are a spa pro or new owner, you might have questions about the best way to approach the task.

In this video, Master Spas specialists guide you through the process of rinsing the filters of a hot tub in real-time. The duo showcased their expertise with a hands-on demonstration, making filter maintenance seem approachable and doable for all hot tub owners.

The first step in filter maintenance is to turn off the power to the spa at the breaker. Once that's done, remove the filters from your spa. To get rid of debris and hair trapped in the filters, a filter brush comes in handy. It's essential to clean between the pleats meticulously

One of the most common questions among hot tub and swim spa owners revolves around the frequency of filter maintenance. The general recommendation is to rinse filters once a week and soak them once a month. However, this isn't a strict rule. The actual frequency might vary depending on how often you use the spa. If you're taking a dip daily or multiple times a day, you might need to rinse and clean the filters more often. The good news is, there's no harm in rinsing them frequently if you find a rhythm that works for you.

Here's a crucial tip: the EcoPur charge core shouldn't be soaked. You can rinse it, though. Also, it's recommended to replace the EcoPur charge core every six months for optimal performance.

Ever wondered why your filters might develop a tinge of orange or green? These colors typically indicate minerals present in the water, which the filter is effectively removing. If you've recently filled your spa or have been using mineral-heavy water, you might notice more frequent color changes.
