Hot Tub

Buying a hot tub cover can be very tricky especially if you buy it online. But no worries, we are here to help you. In this article, we will talk about the basics in buying hot tub covers and getting that tub covered.

But before discussing hot tub covers, let’s talk about how to choose the right hot tub for you.

First, you can do a research online on the best hot tubs there is in the market.  You can read hot tub reviews to check the tub’s specifications and features. Don’t forget to check customer testimonials for the tub as this would show you if the tub actually delivers as promised. Doing this will save you time and energy from going to one shopping center to another. However, before buying, see if the hot tub is available in a market close to you. This would give you a look as to how that tub will work in the normal circumstances.

Also, it is better to go with a reputable hot tub manufacturer to ensure the quality of the hot tub that you are buying. These manufacturers can give you a detailed look of the features and specification and chances are there are a lot of satisfied clients that has given their reviews for the hot tub.

In choosing a hot tub, you would also need to visualize where you will put it. This way you can choose a size that will not occupy a lot of your space and will fit perfectly wherever you plan to place it. This will also prepare you to further ponder on the accessories needed as different places will require different accessory. For example, if you are planning to put your hot tub outside your house, then it is imperative for you to purchase a quality hot tub cover to protect your tub.

Before buying a hot tub, it is vital that you read reviews about them. One website that contains a holistic review of the tub is hottubreviews.org. A good review is essential for you to have a peek on how the tub actually is without having to depend on what the manufacturers has to say. A review would include specifications of the hot tub, technology used for it and its special features. Also, the review will contain customer feedback, the pros and cons of the hot tub and the price when compared to other hot tubs available in the market.

Having that in mind, let’s talk about the main subject here. A hot tub cover is essential for any tub regardless of the type of the tub you actually have. Most would think of a hot tub cover as unnecessary but here are some of the reasons why you would want a hot tub cover.

First, a hot tub cover protects your tub from debris, dust and dirt from entering and polluting your water. This actually helps maintain your hot tub, allowing you to enjoy your tub much longer as it prevents debris from destroying your filter, pump and heater.  A tub cover also helps you to save energy because it helps maintain the temperature of the water where you want it.

It means less reheating and also less cleaning as it is protected by the cover. And although a cover could not bear the weight of an adult’s weight, it should work just fine in protecting children from getting into the tub and possibly drowning or even for animals that lurks around your backyard or wherever your tub is located.

Now that we have established why getting that tub covered is necessary, let’s now talk about the things that you should remember when buying a hot tub cover and getting that tub covered.

Choose a Hot Tub Cover from a Good Company

A good company usually has a good reputation. The most important thing is that it must have the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) seal. This will ensure that the hot tub cover meets all the standards set for its use and it has the materials that are safe for use and for your health.

Check the R Value of the Cover

The R value of a cover will help you save energy. But what is an R Value? This is the actual measurement of insulation that the hot tub cover has. The higher its value is, the higher its heat resistance. If you stay in a place where it rains or snows a lot, you will definitely need a hot tub cover with thicker core to be able to keep the water warmer and reduce your reheating needs.

Check the Foam of the Cover

The best foam for your hot tub cover is closed cell virgin foam. This absorbs moisture and is able to stand the pressure. The density of the foam and its thickness are also important when considering your choice of a cover. Thicker and dense covers are able to maintain water temperature even in the coldest weathers there is.

These foams should be covered with vinyl covering to ensure that the cover will last long. This is regardless of how heavy or how thick the foam of the cover is. In weighing the density of the foam cover, it is best to remember that 1 lb. covers are best for the indoors as they would not likely withstand the outdoors during the cold seasons. 2 lb. foam, however, is best for the outdoors as it is compact and can withstand ice or snow.

The Size of the Cover

The size of the hot tub cover should fit perfectly with the hot tub. Manufacturers usually make a custom cover for their tubs so it’s best to check if your tub manufacturer made one for your tub. If not, find the same cover size for your tub. A larger cover will not seal the warmth and a smaller cover will actually let the dirt inside your hot tub.
