If you're not planning on cycling the tank, then I would just suggest removing the filter all together. The main purpose of having a filter when keeping bettas is to cycle the tank and provide a place for the beneficial bacteria to grow.....otherwise the filter just kinda takes up space.

Is the weekly 100% the only water change you do? Especially with a snail in the tank, which are BIG waste producers, you're going to want to toss in a couple more 50-ish% water changes a week to keep the ammonia down, though you'll probably want to look into upgrading to a 5+ gallon that you can filter and cycle in the near future if you want to keep the snail; a 2.5 is really only suitable for a single betta alone.
