Welcome to Hot Tub Season
One of the best times of year to enjoy the warm water therapy of a hot tub is during the fall and winter months. We call this time of year “Hot Tub Season.” The cold air and warm water make for a divine time in the comfort of your own backyard.

Hot Tub Covers Need Love, Too
Is your hot tub cover getting heavy and looking kind of rough? Replacing your hot tub cover is part of the routine maintenance required with hot tub ownership just like oil changes and new tires for your car. Here are some reasons why it is important to replace your hot tub cover about every four to five years.  

Safety Is a Must
Hot tubs are a lot of fun, but safety always comes first, especially if you have young children.  Hot tub covers must meet a safety rating set by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).* As the foam inside of the cover absorbs more and more water over time, it becomes less able to meet those safety standards. The water-logged foam insert becomes easier to crack or break from heavy snowfall or a child crawling on top of the cover. The locking safety clips are an important safety feature of the cover and over the years they tend to break off, giving easy access to the hot tub. Replacing the cover will give you the peace of mind that small children and unwanted guests will not be able to open the cover. A new cover can add a fresh layer of protection and safety to your hot tub.

Keep in the Heat
It’s called a hot tub for a reason as it is meant to be hot! As hot tub covers absorb water and become heavier, they begin to sag in the middle which lifts the covers off the top ledge of the hot tub shell. On a cold day, you can see steam sneaking out from under the cover. Icicles hanging off the cover are tell-tale-sign of heat loss. Not only can a well-made replacement cover help keep your hot tub nice and toasty, but it can also save you some money on your energy bill as you’re retaining the heat in an efficient manner. Now you can soak in your tub without worrying about the next energy bill.

A More Enjoyable Experience
A new replacement cover will make using your hot tub a more enjoyable experience. The new cover will be lighter and easier to open. You will no longer dread trying to open the cover or need someone to help. It will not only look better but it will smell better. A new replacement cover is a great way to refresh your hot tub and make it look brand new again. Couple your new cover with a hot tub cover lifter and taking the cover off and on will be a breeze!
