Buying the best covers for your hot tub

115 views

If you have spent over $4000 on a hot tub for your home, you need to make sure that it lasts a lifetime. Firstly, you need to make sure that the tub itself is of good quality and the mechanics of it will last. Secondly, it needs to be maintained in such a way that there are no problems. It is a big investment and needs to be looked after in the same way. Here are a few tips on how to look for the best covers.

Make sure it fits the tub properly

This need not be said, but it is important that the spa hot tub covers to match the size of the tub itself – is not small and isn’t too big. If it’s too small, it will lead to open areas on the sides from where dust can come in and eventually, ruins the reason for purchase of a cover. In case it is too big, it becomes heavy, takes more space and is difficult to lift and operate.

Make sure it matches the climate of the place

If you live in a place which sees extreme temperatures, you need to make sure that the cover can withstand these temperatures. Hot tub covers are not cheap, and you would not want it to last a single season.

Ensure the quality of the material

The material of the spa cover should be taken into account before making the purchase. It should have a proper vapour barrier; the foam should be the ideal thickness and density so that it lasts longer. High vapour density will ensure that no water gets inside the hot tub from outside, especially during the snowy winter months. While to a large extent, the foam would help in providing a vapour barrier, it is good to have an additional layer to help with the same.
