Swim Spas represent unique challenges when it comes to covering them.
We can all concur that the swim spa has to be covered when not in use for all the same reasons a hot tub requires a cover. The difficulty is that because of the length of the swim spa and the height of the sides, eliminating and changing the cover can be a lot harder.
Getting a new swim spa is an exciting event in life. You’re looking forward to the exercise you’ll get from using it. Perhaps you’re a little relieved to have actually finally selected from the various models you looked at. At any rate, you probably weren’t believing much about the cover you would use.
Normally, the cover that gets home with your new purchase will be a four area rigid foam filled cover that will divide in the center and go off both ends.
No big deal.
Up until it starts to get heavy.
Which it constantly does.
Every stiff foam filled Swim Spa Cover ever made winds up the same way and it is not the fault of the user. It’s a design defect. Integrated in obsolescence because as soon as it is placed in use over the warm water in your swim spa it is unavoidable.
It’s not from rain, so having a taper will not make any difference. In fact you might have it under a roof and the cover will still get heavy.
The factor is the steam from the water. The particles of steam are very small as they rise from the water surface. They make their method into the little cracks and crevices in the foam. Then as the steam cools it forms back into a liquid and ends up being caught in the cover.
It happens gradually and on a Swim Spa Cover which is made of private sections, at varying speeds. So ultimately you’ll discover one or two of the sections are really getting heavy. The bar lifters on the ends of the swim spa aren’t much help due to the fact that you still have to raise that heavy cover back up onto the spa which is a lot higher than a routine spa.
This is why SpaCap.com developed a various style for their Swim Spa Covers
Instead of using numerous foam panels to develop Swim Spa Covers that will ultimately end up in some land fill, they developed one that utilizes air chambers that don’t suck up wetness.
In fact SpaCap.com Swim Spa Covers are lightweight, insulate better, will not blow away in a wind storm or be harmed by snow or hail.
Covered with Sunbrella Marine material, these covers won’t fade, or fall apart at the seams either. So if you own a swim spa, and you plan to keep using it daily, SpaCap.com has the Swim Spa Cover for it.
