You’ve grabbed your favorite cozy towel. You have your suit on, and your favorite music is playing so you’re ready for some rest and relaxation in your favorite place in the house – your hot tub.
But first, you have to deal with that cover.
You know you have to have one – it does keep the heat in and dirt and debris out, after all. But wow! It sure is heavy and awkward to move. When your family is home you can ask for help but when you’re home alone there’s only one thing you can do.
You manage to fold back half of the cover.
You reach around and drag the cover off the rest of the way, flopping it onto the patio. It’s not good for the cover, but what else can you do? You’re not in bad shape, but you’re not a professional bodybuilder, for goodness sake. That thing weighs a ton and it’s so hard to move.
But there IS a solution – a cover lifter!
These nifty little gadgets attach to your hot tub (they can also attach to a deck, depending on the model and your hot tub installation) and make it incredibly easy to remove your cover, all by yourself – no bodybuilder-level strength required.
Cover lifters come in three different types: Manual pivot, shelf-style and hydraulic-assisted; and they install in one of these ways: Under, side, top and bottom mount. The type you choose will depend on your preferences and budget; the installation will depend on the cover you select, and the way your hot tub is installed.
To choose a cover lifter, you need to know how much space you have behind your spa, and on the side where the lifter will install. Stop by one of our showrooms and we can discuss lifter options with you, to help you make sure you’re making the right choice.
Then, the next time you want to enjoy a soothing hydromassage and you’re home alone – no worries! You can lift that cover right off. And if you want to pretend like you’re as strong as a bodybuilding champion while you do it, we won’t tell.
