8 Reasons Why You Should Splurge on a Spa Cover

Matthew Walsh @ 2022-12-16 09:02:42 -0800

A spa cover is a vital part of any hot tub. It keeps the water warmer by preventing the heat from escaping, and it also helps to keep your spa clean by catching dirt and debris that may be blowing in from outside.

Covering your hot tub with a spa cover not only protects your investment and ensures that it lasts for years, but it also helps you to enjoy your spa even more. Here are reasons on why you should invest in a spa cover!

1) Keep Your Kids Safe and Your Home Clean

With kids around, spills are always going to happen. Protect your spa with a cover and avoid those sad moments of cleaning up the mess they left behind.
One of the most important things to consider when purchasing a spa cover is whether or not it will be easy to clean. If you have kids or pets, then you know that spills are inevitable. To keep your home clean and your kids safe, make sure that the cover is easy to clean.

If you want to find a cover that will protect your spa from dirt and debris, consider investing in a hot tub cover. These covers are made from durable materials like vinyl, which can withstand heavy rain and snowfall without getting ruined. This type of cover also comes with air vents for circulation and insulation for warmth so that the water inside remains at an optimal temperature.

A spa blanket is perfect for those who live in cold climates where the outdoor temperatures drop below freezing during the winter months. These blankets are designed to fit over any size spa and provide protection from snow, rain, sleet, hail or anything else Mother Nature has in store for us! 

2) Save Yourself from Scratches

Many people have small children who like to play with the side rails of their hot tubs or spas, inevitably ending up giving themselves an accidental scratch. The best way to keep your spa or hot tub in good condition is to keep it covered. This will protect it from the elements and your children’s curiosity. There are many different types of covers you can choose from, but the most common are plastic and vinyl covers. They both do a good job at protecting your spa or hot tub, but they have their own advantages and disadvantages. Some of the advantages of using a plastic cover include that they are more affordable than vinyl covers, they are easier to put on and take off, and they don’t have any metal parts that can rust over time. Some disadvantages of using a plastic cover include that it doesn’t insulate as well as vinyl does, so you may need to turn off your heater for a few hours when you first put on the cover.

3) A Spa Cover is an Investment, not an Expense

While you can certainly buy a cheap white fabric one from your local big box store for $50-$60 that will meet your needs while you're in the market, it's going to be more expensive in the long run because they have a limited life span. A spa cover is a great way to add an element of luxury to your home spa experience. A good quality cover can last for years and provide a clean, fresh look for your spa.

A good quality fabric will also be easier to clean and maintain, so you don’t have to worry about constant replacement costs. You should also consider the aesthetic appeal of the cover when making your purchase decision. Some covers are designed with decorative patterns or colors that can really make your spa shine.

4.)Enhance Your Tub's Performance

Your hot tub cover is designed to protect you from the outside world. The primary function of a spa cover is to keep the heat in, whilst keeping cold air and precipitation out. When your spa is not in use, it’s important to keep the cover closed, so it can maintain its energy efficiency. Otherwise you could find yourself with a large electric bill!

5.) Limit UV Ray Exposure

If you unintentionally forget to put the cover on for an hour or two, the sun's rays won't do any damage to your hot tub. However, with time, exposure to the sun's rays can fade the color of your hot tub, including its sides, accessories, and headrests. The inside components of your spa will be kept safe if you leave the cover on during those sunny days because these parts are fortunately made to withstand ultraviolet rays.

6.) Take Care of Your Spa's Accessories

Spa accessories are often overlooked because they're not as visible or exciting as the main tub, but they deserve just as much care. These products can be damaged by sun exposure and UV rays, so it's important to keep them in good condition. For example, if your underwater light has been exposed to too much sun for too long a period of time, the light may need to be replaced.

7.) Keep the Water Inside Temperate

You can help the spa stay in good condition by using temperature controls and filters. If your spa has a pump, it may also be equipped with a thermostat. When the temperature goes too high or low, this can lead to damage and breakdowns in your equipment.

8.) It’s a Safety Feature

A hot tub cover also serves as a locking safety feature; it will be fastened to the top of the tub to prevent removal and prevent kids from getting into the water. To avoid tampering, high-quality choices have locking straps. Your kids are safe when playing in the backyard thanks to a fence. To ensure that their kids remain out of the hot tub, many parents even choose to install a locking gate system around it.
