Insert the new filter screen into the filter compartment ensuring it fits securely and aligns correctly with the housing. **Follow any specific instructions provided with the new filter screen for proper installation.


Step 6: Secure the Filter Compartment 

If your hot tub's filter compartment has a cover or securing mechanism, replace and secure it properly to prevent water leaks or debris entry.


Step 7: Turn On the Power and Test

Once the new filter screen is installed and the compartment securely closed, turn the power back on at the circuit breaker. Check  that the hot tub functions properly, including water circulation and filtration.


Step 8: Water Treatment and Maintenance

After installing the new filter screen, perform any necessary water treatment based on your hot tub's maintenance schedule. This may  include adjusting chemical levels, adding sanitizers or balancing pH levels for optimal water quality.


Step 9: Regular Maintenance and Inspection

Regularly inspect and clean your hot tub's filter screen according to the manufacturer's recommendations. Routine maintenance helps ensure efficient filtration and extends the lifespan of your hot tub components.


By following these steps and maintaining a regular hot tub maintenance schedule, you can enjoy clean, clear, and rejuvenating soaks in your hot tub for years to come.
