Pleatco Spa Filterwash FAQs

How often should I clean my spa cartridge?

Most spa manufacturers recommend once a month. With heavy use 2 weeks. It is always a good practice to clean after heavy use such as a party. Pleatco FilterWash’s thorough cleaning allows cartridges to return to a high level of original performance without harming the filter providing longer product life as well.

Why is the cartridge not white after cleaning?

White does not indicate clean – Pleatco Filter wash does not use bleaching agents – Bleaching agents can damage the filtration fabric and tends to affect the color of the cartridge and do little to actually clean the media. Pleatco FilterWash releases the biofilm that holds the dirt and oils in the media. Releasing the film release the dirt reopening the media. Naturally, the filtration fabric may adopt discoloration over time, however Pleatco FilterWash’s thorough cleaning allows cartridges to return to a high level of original performance without harming or discoloring the filter.
