The foam filled covers are easy enough when they are brand new, but then they start getting heavy. So you go in to your local spa dealer and they sell you on the “bar lifter” idea. Which is sort of better but you still have to lift one side to fold it over the bar.
Then eventually the cover gets too heavy even for the lifter and it either rips the cover in half at the seams or it rips the bar lifter off the side of your swimspa.
So you’re not falling for that again.
Now the spa dealer is selling the new End2End roll away cover. Look how easy it is. One person can just roll it up. And he tells you this cover is built to last as long as your swimspa. Unfortunately, that’s just BS and he knows it.
These roll up swimspa covers are going to last a couple years at best. You’ll pay hundreds of dollars more for them, and they won’t insulate even as well as the rigid foam swimspa cover did. It’s just the latest sales pitch.
The only way the End2End cover is going to be the last cover you need to buy is if you’re planning on getting rid of your swimspa in the next two years.
The best swimspa covers are not the rigid foam filled covers that always get heavy or the roll up covers that always end up breaking down.
No, the best swimspa covers on the planet start insulating at the water surface. (Weird right? Since that’s what we want to keep warm). They can handle any snow load, so much in fact that they have been used for years in mountain resorts all over the world from the Rockies to the Alps.
They can handle any wind storm, including hurricanes and tornadoes. When the wind blows your F150 into your neighbors house you’ll still be able to invite him over to relax in your swimspa while the insurance agent writes you both a check.
The best swimspa covers don’t use vinyl on the top because vinyls, ALL Vinyls are rated by HOURS outdoors. No, the best swimspa covers use Marine Grade Sunbrella on the top because it’s rated by YEARS outdoors and when your neighbor is replacing his handy dandy roll up swimspa cover because it fell apart, your swimspa cover with Sunbrella will still be like brand new.
If you’re tired of replacing your swimspa covers with something that is just going to break your back, your spa or your bank account, go to SpaCap.com. They have been building lightweight, easy to use swimspa covers for as long as there have been swimspas.
