Sundance Spas Patented MicroClean Water Management System


Sundance® Spas patented MicroClean water management system ensures the cleanest, puriest hot tub water in the industry. Sundance® Spas patented MicroClean water management system was designed and engineered all the way back in 2002 and continues to be the most sophisticated effective filtration system in the industry today. The patented MicroClean Water Management system has now been used on Sundance hot tubs for 16 years and clearly works very well as Sundance Spas continues to be a industry leader in 2018. The MicroClean filtration water management system is designed to remove the lotions, oils and products we bring in to the hot tub from our body that is left behind after hot tub use. When you picture yourself enjoying family time in your new Sundance® hot tub or settling in for relaxing hydrotherapy, there is one thing you surely desire: crystal clear, clean water. Our modern MicroClean filtration and water management system makes water maintenance easier than ever, so you can spend less time on maintenance and more time enjoying your backyard oasis. Our patented MicroClean water management system works together with our patented ClearRay water purification system to ensure pure, clean hot tub water with low maintenance and reduced chemical usage.

It All Starts with Filtration

Your filters are working all the time to keep your hot tub water free of debris, lotions, oils, products from our bodies and anything we introduce to the hot tubs water. Our patented MicroClean filtration system in our Sundance® hot tub not only helps to ensure clean, sparkling water, it also equals less maintenance. The filter on a hot tub is very important and can be often overlooked because of colored lights, sleek hot tub cabinets, modern controls or water features/waterfalls. Please keep in mind lights, cabinets, water features/waterfalls are all nice to look at, but if your hot tub water is smelly, cloudy, dirty, foamy or sudsy you won't be able to enjoy those aesthetic features anyways. All Sundance hot tubs are equipped with colored LED lighting, water features/waterfalls, modern elegant controls and beautiful maintenance free synthetic cabinets. When your looking for or at a hot tub and the filter is not shown or discussed than most likely it is just a traditional paper pleated filter used on most hot tubs in the industry today. Our patented MicroClean water management system raises the bar on traditional filtration through the efficient combination of highly effective filtering, water circulation and water-skimming processes, a unique horizontal filter orientation for broader coverage, and a circulation pump that filters seven times more water per minute than typical spas & hot tubs. Sundance®Spas sets the standard for robust, efficient water filtration—and that means you can spend less time maintaining your spa. Whichever Sundance® model you choose, you can rest assured you’re getting the best in hot tub filtration systems.

There are two different types of MicroClean Filtration depending on the series of hot tub, but at their core they rely on two features included on all 780, Select, 880 & 980 Series Sundance Hot Tubs.

Slipstream Skimmer

Sundance Hot Tubs 20” Floating Slipstream Skimmer effectively removes surface debris, by drawing water from a much larger area than traditional hot tub filter systems. This wide filtration area means that impurities and debris such as oils and lotions are being removed from the surface area of the water far more quickly than a traditional hot tub filter. This means oils, lotions and organic products don’t have time to stick to the hot tubs surface and form an ugly “bath tub ring” on your spa, give an oil-slick appearance to the waters surface or cause high amounts of foam or suds.

The floating slipstream skimmer lowers to increase flow over the filters when the hot tubs jets are in use and provides greater access to the MicroClean Filtration System for maximum filtration performance.

Dynamic Flow Circulation Pump

Also essential to the amazing performance of Sundance Hot Tubs MicroClean Water Management System is the Dynamic Flow Circulation Pump. This energy efficient pump (3/4hp / ½ amp) filters up to 8 times more water than standard circulation pumps, meaning that every drop of water in the hot tub is filtered up to 120 times per day.

Over 96,000 gallons of water per day can be moved through the quiet, reliable Dynamic Flow Circulation Pump to keep your hot tubs water consistently clean and clear without fear of huge hydro bills!

The Dynamic Flow Circulation Pump works together with the MicroClean Filters and CLEARRAY™ Water Purification System to optimize filtration and minimize energy consumption and maintenance.

The Dynamic Flow Circulation Pump can be set to run up to 24 hours per day which means your hot tub water will always be moving through our patented MicroClean Water Management System and CLEARRAY™ Water Purification System. Moving water means clean, clear, pure water where as stagnant water can become unpleasent water. The Dynamic Flow Circulation pump can be set to run as many hours per day as you would like or even just run during low peak energy hours. You can choose and customize exactly how often you want to circulate, but obviously moving, filtering, purified water is going to stay much cleaner than stagnant/still water.

MicroClean Filtration

Select & 780 Series Sundance Hot Tubs are equipped with MicroClean1 Filtration Systems. This 2 Part System includes a Disposable high-spun polypropylene Microfiber that removes the smallest debris for greater water clarity. The MicroClean Filter captures tiny particles, measuring as small as only one thousandth of a millimeter, which is 30 times smaller than a cartridge paper Hot Tub Filter can deal with.

As The Micro1 Filter can effectively deal with such a fine particulate, you can keep your Sundance Hot Tubs water sparkling without pouring in extra Hot Tub Chemicals such as Clarifiers, Flocking Agents, Coagulants or Enzymes that are used to clump small particles together so they are big enough to be caught in a cartridge paper pleated filter.

The ground breaking MicroClean Filter is the first FDA (Food and Drug Administration) compliant and NSF (National Sanitization Foundation) Certified filter within the Hot Tub industry.

The large, 75 Sq. Ft Pleated Cartridge Filter is washable for a long life and provides extra filtration when you need it most, when you are using the hot tub!

MicroClean Ultra Filtration

880 Series Sundance Hot Tubs come equipped with MicroUltra Filtration. This exclusive, advanced dual-stage interlocking filtration system means that finer particles are trapped in an inner Micro Core filter after passing through an outer pleated filter, which has caught the larger particles. This system provides robust, efficient hot tub filtration, using technology similar to that used in popular home drinking water filters. The MicroUltra Filtration System provides unrivalled water clarity and is easy to maintain, so you can focus on relaxing.

The MicroUltra System surpasses even the Micro1 Filter by providing more filter area, as the MicroUltra Inner Core Filter, made of 100% melt blown polypropylene, sits inside the pleated outer filter. A Variable Density Construction is used on the MicroUltra Inner Core, which uses the entire depth of the filter to trap sediment and debris – This results in a higher dirt holding capacity.

MicroUltra Dual Stage Filtration is capable of filtering more water more thoroughly in less time and therefore towers above all other hot tub water treatment systems for ensuring pure, clear, safe water with low maintenance and decreased chemical usage.

MicroClean Plus Filtration

The MicroClean Plus Sundance Spas Hot Tub filter is made with an advanced, triple-layered material that provides greater filtration for crystal clear water. This efficient Hot Tub filtering system traps larger particles in the upper layers of the filter and smaller particles in the lower layers. Microclean Plus Hot Tub Filters absorb oils and lotions, removing them from the water. This system is compatible with all Sundance 880™ Series Hot Tubs and provides a fully disposable alternative to the MicroUltra Filter System. This filter is 100% maintenance free!

Clean, Clear Water

Your filters are the first and most important measure of protection for your Hot Tub. Without them, you won’t be able to maintain clean water or hygienic conditions to soak in.

The Sundance MicroClean Water Management System, combined with the ClearRay Water Purification System, combined with the Dynamic Flow Circulation Pump provides you with Clean, Clear, Safe water in your Sundance Hot Tub. Your Hot Tub will always be ready to use whenever you want and ensures you get to spend more of your time doing what matters to you, and less time cleaning and maintaining your hot tub!
