Spa Filters That Perform

August 15th, 2012 by

hot-tub-filter-cartridges

At Hot Tub Works, we offer the highest quality hot tub filters made, with the best media available; Reemay, a spun polyester. Below if some research conducted by our filter manufacturer to illustrate how our filters out perform the competition.

 

 

One of our competitors has recently introduced a new filtration fabric. They claim that this new fabric is so effective, nothing cleans better or faster. They even go so far as to sell you a 3-ounce filter for pools, when systems using 4-ounce filter fabric are the only ones that pass NSF Standard 50. What’s more, the use of 4-ounce filters is universally supported by pool OEMs.

We don’t think a substandard filter is good for you or your spa.

Think all cartridges are alike? Think again. Without seams that can crack and collapse, FILBUR one-piece, punched PVC cores are stronger than the molded ones found on competitor cartridges. Not only that: Our end caps offer integrated fittings for easy installation and removal, eliminating the need for PAD adapters.

 

 

Reemay is Heavier.
Reemay’s 28% greater weight means more fibers per area to capture more dirt.

Reemay is Thicker.
At 62% thicker, Reemay offers more fibers to collect dirt. Greater thickness means greater dirt-holding capacity and much less chance for dirt to escape the fabric.

Reemay is Sturdier.
135% stiffer means greater pleat integrity, less chance of puncture and tearing for longer life.

 

Substandard filter fabric means a substandard filter cartridge. One that can plug more quickly, require frequent cleaning, deliver inferior water clarity and need replacement more often. In the long run, this costs consumers more, risking your business. Reemay holds 59% more dirt before clogging.

At Hot Tub Works, we stock over 10,000 spa filters for every make and model that has ever made.  If you need a quality spa filter at a great price with free shipping, you can find them here: Spa Filters.

Hottubworks Spa Community

May 6th, 2011 by

One of the most useful but underutilized parts of the site is the Spa Community section. This section could be found on the home page of www.hottubworks.com on the left side highlighted in blue or there is a link to each section below:

spa-community

Hot Tub Tool Box

How to Videos

Forum

 

 

 

 

 

Under the Hot Tub Tool Box section you will find helpful articles and walkthroughs on chemicals and installation of various hot tub parts including pumps, equipment, etc.

Under the How-to-Video section there are instructional videos on how to turn a wet end, install an equipment pack, etc. and there are also instructional videos and informational videos on a majority of the major items on our site.

One of the best parts about this section of the site is that some of the videos actually are demonstrated by our staff, including an information video on pre-filters told by me.

The forum section is helpful to find answers to questions that aren’t available through videos or to find answers to questions during our off hours.

The blog – well, you know about the blog – over 300 articles of interest to spa owners.

Also, as always, we are available by phone if you ever want to discuss any additional questions that you may have. I hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

Hottubworks.com Proves Customer Service is Key

April 29th, 2011 by

hot-tub-spa-consumer-reviewsI love it when I can open my email and see so many client comments and reviews on our products but even more importantly our people.  We are truly a company who cares about our customers and that’s what its all about.

We don’t claim to be perfect yet we are trying to get better everyday.  I’m grateful to work with such an amazing group of people!

These are the reviews just from this morning’s email……..

Hi Brian,
First of, thanks for your help and expertise.  It really made me feel comfortable in making my purchase.  Your warranty and return policy on your product was also a deciding factor for me.  It was much better than your competitors.
Second, I just wanted to mention that the flex pack installed surprisingly easy.  It took longer for me to cut out the hole for the digital control than it was to screw down the pump and control pack.  I was able to use my existing fittings without any problems.  I’d say it took me an hour tops and I was ready to go. So far it’s working great.
Since I’ve done a lot of the research in comparing different companies on prices, warranty, and BBB ratings, I’ve already recommended you to my coworker who will be in the market for a spa pack.

Thanks again!
Roger.

COMMENT: Thank you to Leata, EXT #108, for the wonderful customer service she provided with my recent order (4-25-11). I was attempting to order filters for my swim spa without a part number; and while the one I looked up on the internet would have physically fit, it would have be very inefficient for the size of my unit. She recommended getting parts numbers for the housing assembly, and after calling her back, she matched the approprate spa filter based on that & the actual size of my swim spa. She went above and beyond my expectations in providing EXCELLANT CUSTOMER SERVICE. She was polite,helpful, and informative throughout the entire process; even when calling her back with details near COB. Thank you so much. Please relay my comments to her. You can bet you will recieve several orders from me in the future. KUDOS!

To Whom it May Concern,
I called and talked with Lietta (ext. 108) regarding this order shortly after I received this e-mail.  My son is getting married on Saturday May 30th and we are hosting the rehearsal dinner as well as having several of our close friends stay with us for the weekend.  And I really needed my New Hot Tub cover before the 29th.  She has tracked the manufacture of the spa cover and talked with the freight company several times to ensure delivery before the 29th.  I received my new spa cover yesterday May 27th and I wanted to drop you a note and say “THANKS” for the excellent customer service and let you know that you have a very valuable employee in Lietta.  She called me several times to let me know the progress of the cover and it was greatly appreciated.  I wish all customer service people were as kind and understanding as Lietta.  Don let her get away from you!

Thanks very much from a very satisfied customer.

Sincerely,

Craig

The Difference Between Spa Filters

March 30th, 2011 by

spa-filter-pleat-differences

One common question that I get about spa filters is the difference between different cartridge numbers that have the same measurements. An example of this would be the difference between the HTF-0196 and HTF-0195.

When you look at the description of the HTF-0196 you will see it says 35 SF and under the HTF-0195 you will see 50 SF. What that is referring to is the square footage of fabric that the spa filter contains.The HTF-0195, with 50 sq ft. of fabric, has more pleats per inch, and more surface area for which to filter with.

So if you look at the pictures of both spa filters you will notice that the HTF-0195 has more pleats (folds) than the HTF-0196. This means that the HTF-0195 will filter more efficiently.

This situation comes up with a lot of other filters on our site so keep this in mind when you’re searching for the correct spa filter.

And as always don’t hesitate to call in; we are always here to help you.

hottubworks.com is helping our customers’ save money

March 28th, 2011 by

spa-cartridge

Here at hottubworks – we want to help our customers’ save money any way we can. One way we do this is by suggesting less expensive alternatives to maintain your hot tub.

For example; Replacement Spa Filters can be expensive. Especially when you feel stuck buying an OEM filter. Many spa manufactures’ tell their new spa owners that they must buy the OEM filter. Big secret… this is not the case and there is a cheaper way!

 

I was speaking to a new customer today who has been using the Eco-Pur filtration system (This is a two part spa filter system which can be very expensive). I suggested she use a one piece replacement cartridge filter instead of the two piece Eco-Pur and purchase a mineral cartridge like Nature2 separately, which can be placed inside of the one piece substitute . This combination will do the same thing as the Eco-Pur and save her lots of money! She was so excited.

We can sell you the OEM filter cartridge if you prefer, or if you are looking to save up to 50%, consider a quality replacement spa filter. They are constructed the same, with the same weight and density of fabric,  just without the designer name!

Call any of us here in customer service for suggestions on how you can save money! We love to help!

Lietta!
