Since we opened our first showroom in Farmingdale, Best Hot Tubs has included a hot tub cover with all our spa packages. We do this because a quality hot tub cover will not only keep unwanted things out and reduce the amount of chemicals needed to keep clean water, but a cover also keeps in the heat — saving energy.
However. While our spa covers are well made, they still need some care. For one thing: when opening your spa, don’t pull too hard on its handles — especially if it’s covered with snow.
Another excellent article in aquamagazine.com also warned recently, “Other misguided hot tub owners step in and then sit on the cover (an especially common habit when hot tub guests take a photo together). So, no sitting on your cover.
Keeping your cover cleaned according to manufacturer’s directions is another helpful bit of advice. I’s also very wise to keep your hot tub cover clear of debris: fallen limbs, wet leaves, snow, ice, etc. Because even though the whole purpose of a cover is to keep all that out of your clean spa water, and not thereby messing up your pH balanced, etc., even a cover can deteriorate over time if not kept free of contaminants.
