Hot tub cover Reviews
There are many H ot tub Covers available on ebay and the internet. This guide is designed to help you know the attributes that make up a hot tub & spa covers, so you can choose the best spa cover for you, at the best price available.
All spa covers these days are tapered so that the rain, snow and ice will runoff much like the roof of your house. You will find covers ranging in thickness starting at a 4 inches in the middle tappered to 2 inches on the outside edge, to a 6 inch tappered to 4 inches. The difference in the thickness of the foam is not only size but also load capacity, and that is the most important part of the thickness. The thicker the foam the more load the cover can withstand. For example a 4” x 2” tapered cover can withstand approximately 75lbs. of load capacity before it will break whereas a 5” x 3” can withstand 125lbs. of load. And lastly a 6” x 4” Hot tub cover can withstand a load of 250lbs. As with everything there are tradeoffs the more load capacity the heavier the cover. The most important thing to look at is your climate, the more snow load the heavier the cover you require. If your spa is at deck level and people are possibly going to walk on it you will need a 6” x 4”. If your spa is indoors you can get away with a 4” x 2” taper. The best cover for most conditions is the all season cover, the 5 x 3 hot tub cover taper which is manageable weight and great load capacity.
