Hot tubs are a great way to loosen up and soothe your aching muscles. Nevertheless, the hot tub is good if it is cleaned in a proper way and doesn’t consist of any floating debris as well as body oils. It is due to this reason that the filter of your hot tub should be cleaned properly so that you can get all the benefits from it.
If you clean your filter regularly your tub will be able to function properly. Besides the life span of your hot tub will also be enhanced. The filter system helps to take away the dust and debris of spa water and keep the water clean. In fact, unhealthy bacteria also get removed that can start breeding in your spa water.
So every week you should remove the filter and wash it properly. In addition, you should also try to clean the filter with vinegar solution once a month.
