Swim Spas represent special obstacles when it comes to covering them.
We can all agree 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, getting rid of and replacing the Swim Spa Cover can be a lot harder.
Getting a new swim spa is an exciting event in life. You’re eagerly anticipating the exercise you’ll get from using it. Perhaps you’re a little relieved to have actually finally made a selection from the various models you looked at. At any rate, you probably weren’t believing much about the Swim Spa Cover you would use.
Generally, the cover that gets back with your new purchase will be a four area rigid foam filled Swim Spa Cover that will split in the center and go off both ends.
No big deal.
Up until it starts to get heavy.
Which it always 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 flaw. Built in obsolescence since as soon as it is placed 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 Swim Spa Cover will still get heavy.
The problem 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 Swim Spa Cover
It takes place slowly and on a Swim Spa Cover which is made of individual sections, at varying speeds. So eventually you’ll see one or two of the areas are really getting heavy. The bar lifters on the ends of the swim spa aren’t much help since you still need to lift that heavy Swim Spa Cover back up onto the spa which is a lot higher than a regular spa.
This is why SpaCap.com created a different style for their Lightweight Swim Spa Covers
Instead of using several foam panels that will eventually wind up in some landfill, they designed Lightweight Swim Spa Covers that uses air chambers that don’t suck up moisture from steam.
In fact SpaCap.com Lightweight Swim Spa Covers are easy to use, insulate better, will not blow away in a wind storm or be harmed by snow or hail.
Covered with Sunbrella Marine fabric, these Lightweight Swim Spa 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 everyday, SpaCap.com has the Swim Spa Cover for it.
