Hot Tub Covers And Spa Covers Easy Care Tips

by Micheal Stevens

The cost of a new hot tub or spa cover should have you thinking more in the terms of spa or hot tub cover care and maintenance. But this usually never comes to mind until the day comes when you have to replace your hot tub or spa cover.

The covers have a wide price range to match the quality of the cover itself. Purchasing a new hot tub cover should not be something you just rush out to do one day when you have some spare time.

What To Look For When Purchasing A Hot Tub Cover Or Spa Cover

The first thing you should look for to ensure that you are actually buying a quality spa or hot tub cover is the ASTM logo. The ASTM what?? The ASTM International stands for American Society for Testing Materials and this is an actual committee that oversees the quality of the construction and material used in producing the covers.

A certain criteria of standards must be met before they will give the cover their seal of approval. They make certain that the cover will stand up to a certain amount of weight should someone sit or for whatever reason stand on the cover.

Not only does the cover have to pass a durability test it has to demonstrate its ability to retain the heat within the hot tub or spa.

There are a lot of hot tub cover manufactures that put out such a low quality cover and people get drawn in by the low pricing but in the end they are paying out the wazoo in heating or electric bills.

If you purchase a hot tub or spa cover that has the ASTM logo you can rest assured that you are getting a quality cover and although it may cost you more at the time of purchase it will pay for itself in no time by reducing your heating costs.

Spa and hot tub owners have to take extra precautions because unlike a swimming pool which has a pool gate or fence to keep out unsupervised children or unwanted quests a hot tub makes for easy access.

When shopping for a spa or hot tub cover you have to take safety into consideration so the cover you purchase should have some safety features which allows the owner to secure the cover in place so as to avoid any unnecessary accidents.

Mildew can become a real nuisance with a cheaper brand cover so to avoid this you should look for a hot tub cover that is made out of marine grade Naugahyde which is extremely mildew resistant.

Another thing you should look for when shopping for a new spa cover is to make sure that the insulating foam is completely wrapped with a study vapor barrier.

What causes an early demise of most covers is the fact that over time the insulating foam soaks up so much water from the vapor and steam it becomes to heavy to lift.

hot tub coverTo sum it up when you are purchasing a new hot tub or spa cover make certain that it has the ASTM logo, make sure it is made of high quality material, it must have secure fasteners to keep out children and unwanted quests it must be durable enough to withstand a heavy snow load and it should have at least a 3" slope so that rain and melting snow will easily run off the cover.
