How do I prepare my filter cartridges for the Aussie Winter?

  • Lubricate the o-rings of your filter with some silicone grease to protect it from the chill and dry air
  • Give your cartridge a good hose down to remove any dirt and grime on the filter
  • You can reduce the time and water needed to clean your filter with a waterwand filter cleaning attachment
  • If your cartridge has stubborn gunk on it, give it a good soak with some filter cleaning solution
  • If you have multiple cartridges, use the oldest one and keep your better-conditioned cartridge for the summer.
