It depends on the filter on how you clean a reusable filter.
- For our standard metal mesh filter there are two different ways depending on how dirty the filter is. First, you can brush or vacuum the dust off the air entry side. The other option is power wash or use a garden hose. When you wash the filter with water you need to backwash the filer. Spray the power washer or hose on the air exit side. Make sure the filter is dry before replacing it back into the system. Apply our filter spray on the air entry side when the filter is dry and place back into the unit.
- Infinite Gold 8 filter needs to be cleaned by a garden hose or in a sink. It needs to be back washed as well. Spray water into air exit side with the drain holes on the opposite side. Make sure the filter is dry before replacing it back into the system. It would not be a bad idea to buy an extra pleat and place it into the system while The Infinite Gold 8 is drying.
- Grease filters can be washed multiple ways. It depends on how much use this filter receives. A mild degreaser can do the trick. Or can be power washed with soap and water.
