Thinner Screw-On Replacement Filter For Older Softubs
If at some point you broke off your Drain Cap / Suction Cover, you are already using – or may want to use – a threaded filter that screws into the drain wall fitting mounted in the side of your Softub. The space available to maneuver a filter can be limited near the floor of your Softub, so it’s easiest to use this Thinner Screw-On Replacement Filter for the job. This filter works with all three types of Softub.
This filter has standard 1 x 1/2″ MPT threads.
Check To Purchase The Right Filter!
The filter’s format is pictured above. If your existing filter is 5″ in diameter and you screw your filter directly into the wall of your Softub, this is your threaded filter.
If you need this filter, one of the drains on your Softub does not have a drain cap. This may have been by design, or it may be because your drain cap broke off. If you would like to replace your drain cap, check the special section below for more information.
Note: Because this filter is thinner than the standard Softub filters, your Durasock filter sock will not fit snugly and may even fall off. Try stretching an elastic band around your filter.
There Are No Exchanges, Returns Or Refunds On Filters!
Please take great care when selecting the right filter for your Softub: there are no returns, exchanges or refunds if you order the wrong filter. This filter is only to be used if you have broken off your drain cap and exposed a threaded pipe. If your drain cover is missing, you should install replacement parts before you attach a filter (see below for the drain cap retrofit kit).
I Want To Fix My Broken Drain Cap / Suction Cover!
If Your Original Drain Cap Was About 5 1/2″ In Diameter: If you have lost or broken the drain cap, you probably just need a 5 1/2″ Drain Cap Replacement. If the white drain wall fitting (which holds the drain cap) is broken (usually one of the screw-holding “tangs”), you will need a new Softub Drain Wall Fitting.If Your Original Drain Cap Was About 4″ In Diameter: This Drain Cap / Suction Cover has been discontinued by Softub. Breaking this cap usually means that you have broken the frame behind it instead of the cap itself. We have good news for you: Softub has released a Drain Cap / Suction Cover Retrofit Replacement Kit, which comes both With and Without the new 5020 filter you will need to use with it.
