How long has it been since your filter was cleaned? If it hasn’t been done in at least 6 months then it is time to break it down and clean it. Whether a D.E. or a cartridge filter, it is good practice to clean it twice a year. Not only is is good for longevity of your internal filter parts but also to rid your system of algae spores and any organic material that has been filtered out. The filter for both your pool and spa is vital to the health of your water. In a spa, cleaning your filter should be done every month due to the amount of usage it gets for such a small body of water.
