You ask. The Cover Guy answers:

What type of filter should I buy?

Hot Tub Filters are made up of four elements, CORES, MEDIA (Filtration Fabric), BANDS, and END CAPS.

You want to make sure your hot tub filter has a properly designed core that MAXIMIZES the filtration area, increases flow, and creates uniform flow distribution through the entire cartridge increasing its life and the cleanliness of your water. At The Cover Guy we supply only the best leading manufacturers of hot tub filters, that use the latest core technologies.

Another important element to your hot tub filter is the Antimicrobial End-caps which you need to withstand chlorine degradation.  The Cover Guy Filter Cartridge end caps are 100% Antimicrobial which prohibits the growth of odor causing bacteria.

The Cover Guy has break-resistant bands that keep the pleats clearly defined and evenly separated for increased water flow.  If you have low quality bands that fall off and cause collapsed pleats you will find that you decrease a filter’s life span; have poor flow increasing back pressure throughout the entire filtration system.

Making sure you pick the right filter for your hot tub is the most important part of buying your hot tub filter. There are several leading brands to choose from, and The Cover Guy has chosen to supply the very best quality hot tub filters available.

You will want to look at your current filter and match the product number for a perfect fit, or go to your hot tub manual to see what filter your hot tub requires. You will want to match perfectly the length, width, and type of end your filter has.

Lastly, make sure you are keeping track of your filter cleaning and replacing. You should clean the hot tub filter with a good hot tub filter cleaning agent monthly and replace the hot tub filter every six months.
