Hot Tub Replacement Covers

No matter how well you maintain your hot tub cover, there will come a time that you need to replace it. This may not seem like a huge deal, but the cover you choose is actually a really important decision and should be given some consideration, to ensure that you are getting the most out of your cover.

Basically, there are 2 main functions for a cover; to keep debris out and heat in. Keeping debris out doesn’t take much thought. As long as the cover completely covers the pool with no gaps, it will meet this requirement.

The second function takes a little more consideration. Keeping heat in is a key factor to enjoying your hot tub. Nobody wants a warm hot tub. More importantly, nobody wants excessively high utility bills from a heater that is continuously running. Choosing a high quality cover is going to ensure that you always have hot water and lower utility bills.

So what should you look for in a cover?

High Quality Materials

First of all you want to make sure that your cover is made of high quality vinyl. Even when you are trying to be careful your cover is going to get dinged or scratched. If your cover is made of a high quality vinyl, it is less likely to get ripped.

Fully Insulated Seams

Much of the heat that is lost through your cover is lost through the seams. Be sure that you choose a cover that has completely insulated seams.


One of the most important things, is to make sure that your cover gets a tight seal. Purchasing a cover that fits properly will be key to getting a tight seal that keeps as much heat in as possible.

Once you have chosen a high quality cover, make sure that you take good care of it. Never let anyone sit or stand on your cover. Keep sharp objects away and regularly check for punctures or tears. Finally, you may want to invest in a cover lifter. Not only will a cover lifter prolong the life of your cover by protecting it from excessive wear and tear, it will also make it easier to take your cover on and off. Buying a quality cover is one of the most important ways that you can protect your hot tub investment. Consider these things and you can be sure that you will be buying a cover that you will not regret. Stop by our showroom to see our quality covers.
