I need a replacement hot tub filter cartridge, what do I do?

Finding replacement hot tub filter cartridges can sometimes be a challenge, especially if you’re unfamiliar with the make and model of the spa or need a filter for an older model. Don’t worry though, we stock a vast range of popular filter cartridges at our hot tub showroom here in Cardiff, if we don’t have your particular hot tub filter we can source a vast range of other makes and models from our trusted network of suppliers.

Does your filter have a manufacturers code?

Perfect! This is usually the easiest way to identify the make and model of filter cartridge you require. Look for a manufacturers code on one of the ends of the cartridge and this will help us source a replacement item for you relatively quickly.

I don’t have a code, but I have my old filter cartridge.

If you can’t find a manufacturer’s code on your hot tub filter we can still source a replacement for you based on a few simple measurements of your old filter. Firstly measure the outside diameter (OD) of the hot tub filter cartridge and the inside diameter (ID) of the hole in the middle of the cartridge.

Next, measure the length from the outside of the cartridge (not including any raised steps, handles or threads).

Lastly, if your hot tub filter cartridge doesn’t have a hole at each end, just let us know what type of end caps it has. Other types of tops will either be a handle or closed (flat). For the bottom, your filter may have a slip fit collar, coarse thread (SAE) or fine thread (MPT) collar.

Ideally, to help us match your hot tub filter cartridge, a few photographs always helps us to identify the correct replacement for you. Or, if you are planning on visiting our hot tub showroom in Cardiff, bring your old filter with you and one of our trained sales staff will help identify the correct cartridge for you.

I don’t have a code or an old filter cartridge. What now?

Without an old filter cartridge or part code the simplest way of sourcing a replacement is by providing us with the make, model and year of manufacturer of your hot tub.

Remember, we are able to source a huge range of hot tub filters and our website has a small selection of the cartridges we stock. If you need any help or advice please call one of our friendly sales staff to discuss your specific needs on 029 2070 5059.

Introducing Bayrol Active Oxygen chemicals, an alternative to chlorine and bromine sanitisers for your pool

Have you been looking for suitable alternatives to chlorine or bromine sanitisers for your swimming pool? Perhaps you suffer with sensitive skin and need a milder disinfectant for your water? Finding a suitable alternative to traditional sanitisers has never been easier with our Bayrol Soft & Easy range!

What is Bayrol Soft & Easy?

Bayrol Soft & Easy active oxygen pool sanitiserBayrol Soft & Easy is a combination of granules based on active oxygen and algaecide that helps provide your pool with reliable pool water disinfection whilst helping prevent algae growth. In addition, Soft & Easy also contains a clarifier for enhanced sparkling water. Soft & Easy features handy sachets that you can use directly in your pool’s water once a week - an even simpler way to enjoy safe, swimming water without the need for Chlorine or Bromine!

How to use Bayrol Soft & Easy

Before you start using Bayrol Soft & Easy you will need to ensure the pH value of your water is between 7.0-7.4. Once the pH value is in range add a double dose of Soft & Easy to get started.

For regular maintenance add the required number of sachets on a weekly basis to your pool. After dosing, wait for a maximum of 1-2 hours before testing the water with an 02 pool tester and DPD No4 tablet. The desired level of Bayrol should be at least 8 mg/L. If this level is not achieved, repeat the dose of Bayrol, again, waiting to test between the 1-2 hour time limit.

How to shock with chlorine when using Bayrol Soft & Easy

Even though Bayrol Soft & Easy is totally chlorine free, it is recommended that a periodic shock dose of chlorine, especially for use as a problem solver, is used with this system. All Swim Shock is an ideal maintenance shock treatment for use with Bayrol Soft & Easy.

Please note: household cleaning products must not be used in your swimming pool or surrounding area, always use specially formulated, swimming pool friendly cleaning chemicals.

A Swimspa with a Difference; introducing the New E550 Endless Pools Fitness System

With a wealth of choice available on the Swimspa market, it’s a good idea to visualise how you see yourself using one early on in your search. 

For some, it’s a place to bring the whole family together; with the kids swimming and splashing around while the adults relax in the spa seats. Or perhaps you’re serious about your fitness and searching for the ultimate Aquatic Fitness System – whatever your reasons, finding the Swimspa that best suits your needs is key.

Different By Design

Endless Pools E550 Fitness SystemThe newest model by industry leader Endless Pools was designed based around customer feedback, resulting in a truly unique swimspa. 

Building on the success of the popular E500 in the Endless Pools range, the E550 is the same 15’ length but with a width increase of 13cm, making the E550 the widest swimpsa in the range at 239cm.

Featuring the signature Endless Pools Fastlane as the counter current system, optional underwater treadmill and resistance bands, this is an all-round total body fitness centre suitable for any swim stroke or water workout – just perfect for butterfly and breast stroke fans!

By relocating the steps to the front of the swimspa and replacing the standard hydrotherapy massage seats with two standing massage stations, every inch of space is made available for exercising in.

Low Impact, Low Maintenance

The Endless Pools Fastlane swim current system provides a deep, broad current helping you swim in place and the current easily adjusts to suit all levels, from toddlers to triathletes. 

For alternative aquatic workouts, use the resistance bands and add resistance by turning the swim current on for the ultimate core stability builder!  If you choose the Underwater Treadmill, you’ll also feel the benefits of walking or running minus the stresses of land-based exercise.

Whichever water-based workout you enjoy, you’ll reap all the same physical benefits as traditional exercise with low impact on your joints and muscles – say hello to faster recovery times and less injuries!

E550 Fitness System featuring the Endless Pools FastlaneAs with all swimspas in the Endless Pools range, the E550 features a durable, steel-framed cabinet with a modern, sleek design - designed with both style and functionality in mind while being virtually maintenance free.

The Endless Pools Experience

One thing that is highly recommended is to ‘wet test’ a swimspa before making that all-important decision.  After all, this isn’t an everyday purchase and you want to get a true feel for what it’ll be like to actually use in real life. We currently have two swimspas by Endless Pools available to try, the X500 from the SwimCross jetted swim current range and the E2000 featuring the signature Endless Pools FastLane counter current system, so that customers can try both out and help them decide which type suits their needs best.
