If you haven’t owned a hot tub before then you may need to know how to remove and clean your filter. Thankfully it is a relatively simple task. Drain your hot tub completely, locate the filter and remove it from the hot tub by pulling or twisting it. Usually, your filter can be adequately cleaned by running it under a garden hose. This should be done 1-2 times a month. Before replacing it is recommended that it is soaked in the cleaning fluid recommended for your tub, at least once every few months.
