Swim Spas represent special difficulties when it comes to covering them.
We can all concur that the swim spa has to be covered when not in use for all the same factors a hot tub requires a cover. The difficulty 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 more difficult.
Getting a new swim spa is an exciting event in life. You’re looking forward to the workout you’ll get from using it. Possibly you’re a little relieved to have finally made a selection from the different designs you looked at. At any rate, you most likely weren’t believing much about the cover you would use.
Usually, the cover that gets back with your new purchase will be a four area rigid foam filled cover that will divide in the center and go off both ends.
No big deal.
Up until it begins to get heavy.
Which it always does.
Every rigid foam filled Swim Spa Cover ever made ends up the same way and it is not the fault of the user. It’s a style defect. Integrated in obsolescence because as quickly as it is put in use over the warm water in your swim spa it is inescapable.
It’s not from rain, so having a taper won’t make any difference. In fact you could have it under a roof and the cover will still get heavy.
The factor is the steam from the water. The particles of steam are extremely little as they increase from the water surface. They make their way into the little cracks and crevices in the foam. Then as the steam cools it forms back into a liquid and becomes caught in the cover.
It occurs gradually and on a Swim Spa Cover which is made from individual sections, at varying speeds. So eventually you’ll discover one or two of the areas are truly getting heavy. The bar lifters on completions of the swim spa aren’t much assistance due to the fact that 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 created a different design for their Swim Spa Covers
Instead of using a number of foam panels to construct Swim Spa Covers that will eventually wind up in some landfill, they designed one that utilizes air chambers that do not suck up moisture.
In fact SpaCap.com Swim Spa Covers are lightweight, insulate better, will not blow away in a wind storm or be harmed by snow or hail.
Covered with Sunbrella Marine fabric, these covers will not fade, or fall apart at the joints either. So if you own a swim spa, and you intend to keep using it everyday, SpaCap.com has the Swim Spa Cover for it.
