The filter media we use to make our filters is designed to filter down to 10 microns. This allows us to capture much smaller particulate and clean the water more than two times better than the common pleated filter. This filter media is a cloth and is very easy to clean allowing you to use the filter over and over. Because this media is so strong these filters tend to last several years.
These filters are a great way to recover your water instead of dumping and refilling after heavy use. Many of our customers have replaced the pleated filter that comes with the spa with our Filter Savers. If you choose to replace your pleated filter with a Filter Saver keep in mind that they will plug up and need to be cleaned weekly if your water is clear and as quick as 5 minutes if your water is cloudy. Having a spare set is a good idea.
