The filtering system for the J-300 and J-400 Series Hot Tub have new improved design.
The concept is pretty clever and simple.
The circulation pump pulls its water from a filter, through the pump, through the heater, and back into the spa. The traditional way has a simple pleated filter. But the simple truth is the paper folds are designed to catch large size particulates.

The new system configuration includes one of the ABOVE filters for the Jet Pumps

a New Canister Design with a second stage "dense load" filter. What that means is what the standard Stage 1 filter doesn't catch the new dense load filter will. Downside is the Stage 2 canister filter can be so effective (especially when first installed due to quality of water)  it can actually clog in 3-6 months. But just think... the reason it clogs is all those smaller particulates were normally swirling around your spa and your body. Now they are in the filter and you toss the smaller "dense load" filter and replace.

If you are using the 6000-383 with a "removable lid" filter and NOT using one of the following items... WHY NOT?

The 6000-383 patented design filter makes keeping your spa water clean so much easier.

With their patented filter you have a handle on the filter top that twists off. Under this cap you can attach the "ProClear" listed below on the left filter that the circulation pump draws from. This allows you to use the products below..


If you wish to use chlorine or bromine tablets to sanitize your spa, you can purchase the slotted dispenser listed below and attach that to the filter cap. You that can add tablets as needed and adjust the slots as needed. This will remove the need for a "floater" on the water. You can reuse the slotted dispenser over and over.


The Mineral Purifier is a water treatment system that uses trace elements of silver and copper to kill bacteria and algae more effectively and much faster than chlorine alone. Easy to use, the ProClear Mineral Stick is placed directly into the filter cartridge and has a lifetime of up to 4 months. Not to be mixed with Bromine, bromides or Biaquanides.

This allows you to place your sanitizer in the circulation filter lock cap on Patented Premium filters. The filter top handle opens and allows you to insert this into the filter body and snaps onto the filter cap. You can also adjust the vents to set the chemical level to your needs. Instead of a floating dispenser, you will have this inside the filter with your sanitizer. It assures constant application of sanitizer through the filter and ozonator.

Filter Education

Filters: Many filters are patented design. The most common one has a twist off handle that allow you to add their ProClear or chemical dispenser.  

Some offer filters with Microban in the paper. Microban is used to limit organic growth on the filter. It lasts the life of the filter.

We recommend cleaning the filters every 3 months and replacing every 1-2 years. If you have a model with a 24/7 circulation pump, I recommend you clean the filters more often OR switch filters after 1 1/2 months. My concern is if the filter is not clean, it could affect the longevity of the circulation pump.

Cleaning filters must include a method of "emulsifying" the oil on the paper. Bleach will not do it. Hot water will not. Most use either TSP or a filter cleaner. But you must breakdown the oil and rinse thoroughly. Otherwise it will clog and cause flow problems and damage
