We can all agree that the swim spa needs to be covered when not in use for all the same factors a hot tub needs a cover. The challenge is that because of the length of the swim spa and the height of the sides, getting rid of and changing the cover can be a lot harder.
Getting a brand-new swim spa is an interesting occasion in life. You’re eagerly anticipating the workout you’ll obtain from using it. Maybe you’re a little relieved to have actually lastly made a selection from the different models you looked at. At any rate, you most likely weren’t thinking much about the cover you would use.
Normally, the cover that comes home with your new purchase will be a four area stiff foam filled cover that will split in the center and go off both ends.
No big deal.
Till it begins to get heavy.
Which it always does.
Every rigid foam filled Swim Spa Cover ever made ends up the same way and it is not the fault of the user. It’s a style defect. Built in obsolescence because as quickly as it is positioned in use over the warm water in your swim spa it is inescapable.
It’s not from rain, so having a taper will not make any difference. In fact you could have it under a roof and the cover will still get heavy.
The reason is the steam from the water. The molecules of steam are extremely small as they rise from the water surface area.
They make their way into the little cracks and crevices in the foam. Then as the steam cools it forms back into a liquid and ends up being trapped in the cover.
It takes place gradually and on a Swim Spa Cover which is made from individual sections, at varying speeds. So ultimately you’ll see a couple of of the sections are truly getting heavy. The bar lifters on completions of the swim spa aren’t much aid since you still need to raise that heavy cover back up onto the spa which is a lot higher than a routine spa.
This is why SpaCap.com created a different design for their Swim Spa Cover
Instead of using several foam panels to build Swim Spa Covers that will ultimately wind up in some garbage dump, they designed one that uses air chambers that don’t suck up moisture.
In fact SpaCap.com Swim Spa Covers are light-weight, insulate better, will not blow away in a wind storm or be damaged by snow or hail.
Covered with Sunbrella Marine fabric, these covers will not fade, or break down at the seams either. So if you own a swim spa, and you plan to keep using it daily, SpaCap.com has the cover for it.
