Swim Spas represent unique obstacles when it pertains to covering them.
We can all agree that the swim spa needs to be covered when not in use for all the same reasons a hot tub needs a cover. The challenge is that because of the length of the swim spa and the height of the sides, removing and changing the Swim Spa Cover can be a lot harder.
Getting a new swim spa is an amazing event in life. You’re looking forward to the exercise you’ll receive from using it. Possibly you’re a little relieved to have lastly selected from the different models you took a look at. At any rate, you most likely weren’t believing much about the Swim Spa Cover you would use.
Usually, the cover that comes home with your brand-new purchase will be a 4 section rigid foam filled Swim Spa Cover that will divide in the center and go off both ends.
No big deal.
Until it starts to get heavy.
Which it constantly does.
Every rigid 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 due to the fact that as quickly as it is positioned 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 distinction. In fact you might have it under a roof and the Swim Spa Cover will still get heavy.
The factor is the steam from the water. The molecules of steam are really small as they rise from the water surface. 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 Swim Spa Cover
It occurs slowly and on a Swim Spa Cover which is made from private areas, at varying speeds. So eventually you’ll notice one or two of the sections are truly getting heavy. The bar lifters on completions of the swim spa aren’t much aid because you still need to lift that heavy Swim Spa Cover back up onto the spa which is a lot higher than a routine spa.
This is why SpaCap.com developed a different style for their Lightweight Swim Spa Covers
