Why do hot tub covers go bad?

Go Fish Digital @ 2021-05-06 03:02:09 -0700

The primary reason a hot tub cover goes bad is water absorption into the insulation core. This happens for two reasons: Low Quality Materials and Poor Chemical Care. Many spa covers sold on the internet utilize a “mesh bottom” which is a cheap material that allows for water absorption over time. MySpaCover utilizes a 11oz PVC Coated Poly for maximum insulation protection. We also utilize a 6mil plastic wrap vapor sealed to the insulation core. Our competition uses a 2 mil wrap and often is sealed just using tape, allowing water to enter the insulation.
