Spa Covers and Snow Loads

Replacing your hot tub cover because the snow squashed it?
What if there was a cover that could handle that much snow? Yes, even as much as you had.
Excellent news there is.
First lets take a minute and discuss why the one you have to change didn’t make it.
The foam in the cover broke under the weight of the snow.
Was it due to the fact that the metal channel that goes through the center of the cover on both sides wasn’t enough support?
It was due to the fact that the weight of the snow would have broken a 2×4 if it were attempting to bridge an eight-foot gap like that.
What caused the cover to collapse was that it was attempting to make a bridge over the spa, from one side to the other. Usually not a problem up until the cover itself gets saturated, however in this case it was the included weight of snow that simply was excessive to deal with.
So, if you get a cover that doesn’t aim to bridge the gap however supports itself by resting on the water, that would be a big enhancement.
Still, you did get a lots of snow. Would it have the ability to handle that much?
Brief response, yes.
It seems that every couple of years, someplace in the country is getting snow that will be explained by their local news as “scriptural percentages” which overwhelms the area, shuts down schools, roadways, airports and life in basic till the storm passes and people can remove.
During those winter season storm occasions, when the daily regimen of the public ends up being concentrated on surviving, how the hot tub is doing just isn’t really that essential. Not surprisingly so.
However as soon as the storm passes and individuals start to examine the damages, it is not uncommon for many or all of the outdoor hot tub covers to be part of the tally.
A few years back, I was doing home shows in Colorado. We had a program in Colorado Springs and after that another in Denver with about 10 days in between.
During the break, I flew from Denver to be home with the household for a few days.
As I was leaving Denver a snow storm was coming in and it turned out the plane I was on would be the last one allowed to take off for days.
When it was time to go back to Denver for the up coming show the return flight I was on removed uncertain that Denver would be all set yet by the time we arrived.
It was, and we were the very first airplane enabled in or out since I had actually left. Individuals that had been in the airport in Denver when I left were still there when I returned 10s days later.
All Denver had actually been shut down for those 10s days. Denver is used to snow.
This was one of those Epic storm occasions.
Patio roofing systems had collapsed. Industrial structures had roofs collapse. Needless to say, practically every outdoor hot tub cover needed to be changed.
With one exception. As insurance agents hurried around to assist their consumers identify exactly what required to be changed, they found that every hot tub that did NOT have to have a brand-new cover had the very same brand name of cover. Those covers were fine. Not just did those Hot Tub Covers not have to be changed but also every hot tub that was covered by one was fine to. The hot tub was till running; the water was still warm even when the property owners could not get outdoors to shovel snow off of them. Even on the hot tubs owned by individuals that were out of town throughout the storm.
The insurance representatives started suggesting that their clients replace their Hot Tub Covers with that brand name. All those covers that had the ability to stand up to that legendary snow load were Hot Tub Covers No other cover was suggested.
That states something.
The spa cover had the ability to deal with the storm.
When the wind blew in ahead of the storm, the SpaCap Hot Tub Covers remained in location. Even covers that were too heavy for one individual to raise.
The hail will not damage a SpaCap since it isn’t stiff. The air inside the cover allows it to offer. No matter how huge the hail gets, it will not harm a SpaCap.
And the snow, a number of feet deep, didn’t damage a single one.
Before you simply buy another traditional hot tub cover, we suggest you go to and get the only kind of cover that really can handle the snow.
