Keep Your Hot Tub Water Flowing Freely!

Dirty, clogged hot tub filters can make it difficult to maintain your hot tubs water and can put strain on your pumps or cause "FLO" errors to occur on your hot tub.

Even if your hot tub filters look clean, they can often be coated in oils, soaps and lotions that clog your filters, reduce water flow and cause your water to be foamy or cloudy.

Rinsing with a garden hose every couple of months will keep larger debris at bay, but a deep clean each time you change your Hot Tubs Water will increase the efficiency of your hot tub filters, help your pumps perform to their best and make keeping your water clean and clear a breeze!

The Sundance Spa Store is excited to announce that we now carry Aqua Magic Cartridge Cleaner in stock. Aqua Magic is the new quick and easy way to deep clean your cartridge filters. 

Unlike traditional cartridge cleaners, Aqua Magic is spray on, and works its magic in 5 - 10 Minutes, eliminating the need to find a huge bucket and soak your filters overnight. Simply Spray Aqua Magic all over your filter, wait a few minutes and then hose off. For an even more effect clean, consider hooking up a Filter Flosser to your garden hose.


The Filter Flosser extends your Hot Tub filter's life by easily removing dirt deposits and debris from filter pleats in a fraction of the time of other cleaning methods. The Filter Flosser generates water and air agitation to remove dirt build-up and debris deep in the pleats of your filter. This cleaner attaches to your garden hose and has a lever to control water flow and direction, giving you the ability to change the water stream in three directions for highly effective cleaning.

The Horizontal stream feature uniformly separates the pleats of the filter to evenly wash away dirt deposits and debris caught deep inside your filter.

The Vertical stream feature gives high-pressure cleaning between pleats, removing small particles of dirt and debris to extend the life of your filter.

The Converged stream feature provides the most concentrated pressure cleaning for removing tough dirt and small debris particles from your filter cartridge.

Using the Filter Flosser means you use half the amount of water, half the time & half the effort – It beats the traditional cleaning method on all fronts!


General Filter Cleaning Tips

* Avoid laundry detergents & household cleaners - They can cause major foaming issues in your hot tub if you use them.

* Rotate your Filters - Keep a spare cartridge filter on hand and rotate them throughout the year. If you use regular Cartridge Cleaner, you can use your spare filter while the original is soaking.

* Use of power washers or dish washers is not recommended. The high water pressure can damage the pleated filter material.

* Don't use bleach on your hot tub filters. Although it may seem to do a good job of cleaning them, it degrades and weakens the filter fibres and greatly decreases the life expectancy of your hot tubs filters.

These High-Spun polypropylene fibre filters polish your water and give ultra-fine filtration, dealing with oils, lotions & tiny particles that are too small for a regular pleated Hot Tub Filter.
