The filter bag and plastic parts can be cleaned with a mild bleach solution of ome part bleach to ten parts water, to remaove any slime deposits collected during use. Rinse with fresh water then allow the parts to completely dry before storing your Diatom® Filter.
Your filter bag should not be scrubbed or machine washed as it will destroy the polyester fabric woven layer that restrains the Diatom powder.
To repair small cracks in plastic parts, use acetone as a solvent glue - allow 12 hours to set.
* Pertains to XL Diatom Filter only.
