Hot Tub Covers 6 Ways

December 14th, 2015 by

worlds-thickest-spa-coverA spa cover cap is one of the most important spa accessories you can buy, and so multi-purpose!

Spa tops not only insulate the spa, keeping the water hot, but they also make the spa safer for kids and animals. In addition, your spa cover keeps the spa clean, blocking out dust, debris and rain water. It also keeps out UV rays which can damage a shiny spa surface and affect water chemistry.

Indeed, your spa cover cap is a very important purchase. That’s why we have so many to choose from! Six different spa cover models, to fit every budget. Spa covers 6 ways!

 

ECONOMY

spa-cover-lt-blueOur Economy spa cover should really be called the indoor spa cover, because it’s not as outdoor-friendly as the other covers below. This is because it uses 1.0lb density foam, and is 4″ thick in the center (2″ at the edges). If outside temperatures dip into the 40’s, this spa cover can have trouble retaining the heat efficiently. It can also be more susceptible to damage from animals, tree branches, high winds, heavy snow, hazards that don’t affect indoor spa covers. On the other hand, it’s the lightest spa cover available!

 

STANDARD

spa-cover-blueOur Standard Spa Cover is great for moderate climates, or those areas that stay semi-warm all year around, or those hot tubs in the deep south. The Standard spa cover has all of the features used in the Economy, with the only difference being that the Foam density used is 1.5lb, 50% more dense than the 1.0lb Foam. The extra density increases the R-value of the cover, making it more efficient, and it also gives the Foam panels more strength and durability.

 

DELUXE

spa-cover-brownThe Deluxe Hot Tub Cover is good for areas that see occasional snow, or near freezing temperatures during winter. With a Full 2.0lb Foam density, your spa cover locks more heat and gives extra resistance against accidental damage to the Foam cores. If you opt for the thinner panels, with a 4″ to 2″ taper, take the option for double wrapping the Foam Cores, to provide more protection against water absorption, even though Deluxe hot tub covers have a five year warranty, not pro-rated, that even covers water absorption.

 

ENERGY SAVER

spa-cover-pinkSaving energy is the primary job of a spa cover, and the Energy Saver Spa Cover does it more effectively with a Continuous Heat Sealâ„¢ that prevents heat from escaping along the center hinge, between panels. In addition, the 1.5lb Foam panels are upsized to 5″ in the middle, tapering to 3″ at the edges. This amps up the R-value from 13 (Standard Cover), all the way up to 20 – making the Energy Saver suitable for mild winter areas of the country.

 

ULTRA

spa-cover-whiteThe Ultra Spa Cover is out most popular model, coming in just under $400, it has an attractive price point, and is loaded with features. Made for snowy weather, or mountain cabins, the 1.5lb Foam Panels are the thickest available, with a 6″ thickness in the center, tapering to 4″ on the edges. This boosts the R-value of the Ultra cover all the way to 24, with the included Continuous Heat Sealâ„¢ and the thickest possible Foam available.

 

THE WORKS

spa-cover-redFinally, we have The Works – which includes everything from the Ultra, but it uses 2lb Density Foam, with a 6″ to 4″ taper. All Options are included with “The Works”, which is why we call it that (Like a Pizza!). Includes the Continuous Heat Seal, Double Wrapped Foam Cores, and heavy duty wind straps, giving this cover an R-value of 30! For those that want the very best spa cover, the most durable and energy efficient available, just ask for “the Works!”.

 

spa-cover-colors-2Spa Covers Six Ways, something for everyone, from $243 to $499. All covers, including the Economy spa top, is made with the finest materials and workmanship, using 30 oz marine grade vinyl, super strong four layer hinge and 20 gauge steel reinforcement channel. Commercial grade zippers with nylon scrim is quadruple (4x!) stitched with Dacron thread at 37 different stress points! And of course, you can order a spa cover in nearly any color you want!
