    filter cleaner?

    Does anyone make their own or just buy from spa store? If you do make your own, what are the ingredients?

    Re: filter cleaner?

    What type of filter are you wanting to clean? Is it a cartridge filter for your spa or is it the filter for your pool? For cleaning a cartridge filter, we recommend using dishwasher soap or trisodium phosphate (TSP). Below is a link to a thread describing that process.

    What about sticking it in the dish washer?

    Filter cartridges are best cleaned by hand with a hose. I don't think that you would accomplish much by putting it in the dishwasher and you might even damage it. Let it soak for a while in water with TSP or dishwasher detergent and then take it out and hose it out real well.

    We have liquid dishwashing detergent, will that work?
