Keeping your pool clean and sparkly isn’t just about good water balance. Although we would like to think that it is, there will be situations when specialized chemicals will be needed. Therein comes a new problem, there are TONS of specialized chemicals out there for different situations, but we decided to create Water TechniX variants for only the most important ones. The Water TechniX line of cleaners and conditioners (in our opinion) are the only additional chemicals that you should have in your arsenal for a cleaner and more enjoyable pool and spa experience.
Before we dive into the Water TechniX Cleaners and Conditioners, here's Tom with a quick overview on the Water TechniX line of pool chemicals.
Water TechniX Filter Cleaner
Just like anything in life, your cartridge filter elements will need the occasional TLC to keep them in top condition. Most of the time, filter cartridge elements will only need a gentle hose down to remove dirt and debris that has accumulated. There will be some times though (mostly after heavy pool usage or if the cartridge has been neglected for some time) that a more thorough cleaning is required and the grime that has accumulated has stubbornly stuck to the elements.
Avoid the temptation to blast it with a high pressure hose! Yes, we’ve thought of it ourselves and we’ve tried it once before and the results weren’t pretty. Although it may seem like cartridge filter elements are very sturdy, it’s not designed to withstand direct high pressure from a hose and it WILL DAMAGE your filter elements.
The solution? Rinse your filter elements with a water wand or a low pressure hose. Once that’s done, fill a bucket large enough to submerge the cartridge filter in. Add 250grams of Water TechniX Filter Cleaner to the bucket with water and stir until well-mixed. Submerge the cartridge for a minimum of 12 hours (preferably overnight). Don’t forget to give it a good shake or agitate it after six hours to help the solution loosen the grime.
After that, the remaining grime on your filter elements should easily wash off with a low pressure hose or with a water wand and your cartridge filter element should be as good as new!
