Swim Spas represent unique obstacles when it comes to covering them.
We can all concur that the swim spa needs to be covered when not in use for all the same factors a hot tub needs a cover. The obstacle is that because of the length of the swim spa and the height of the sides, removing and changing the cover can be a lot harder.
Getting a new swim spa is an interesting event in life. You’re anticipating the exercise you’ll get from using it. Maybe you’re a little relieved to have actually finally selected from the different designs you took a look at. At any rate, you probably weren’t thinking much about the cover you would use.
Normally, the cover that gets home with your new purchase will be a four section rigid foam filled cover that will divide in the center and go off both ends.
No big deal.
Till it begins to get heavy.
Which it constantly 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. Integrated in obsolescence due to the fact that as soon as it is positioned in use over the warm water in your swim spa it is inevitable.
It’s not from rain, so having a taper will not make any difference. In fact you might 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 really small as they rise from the water surface.
They make their way into the little fractures and crevices in the foam. Then as the steam cools it forms back into a liquid and becomes caught in the cover.
It takes place slowly and on a Swim Spa Cover which is made from individual sections, at differing speeds. So ultimately you’ll observe one or two of the areas are truly getting heavy. The bar lifters on completions of the swim spa aren’t much help because you still have to lift that heavy cover back up onto the spa which is a lot higher than a regular spa.
This is why SpaCap.com came up with a different design for their Swim Spa Covers
Instead of using numerous foam panels to develop Swim Spa Covers that will eventually wind up in some landfill, they developed one that uses air chambers that don’t suck up moisture.
In fact SpaCap.com Swim Spa Covers are lightweight, insulate better, will not blow away in a wind storm or be damaged by snow or hail.
Covered with Sunbrella Marine material, these covers will not fade, or fall apart 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.
