Swim Spas represent unique challenges when it pertains to covering them.
We can all agree that the swim spa needs to be covered when not in use for all the same factors a hot tub needs a cover. The challenge is that because of the length of the swim spa and the height of the sides, removing and replacing the cover can be a lot harder.
Getting a brand-new swim spa is an exciting event in life. You’re looking forward to the workout you’ll receive from using it. Maybe you’re a little relieved to have finally made a selection from the various designs you looked at. At any rate, you most likely weren’t believing much about the cover you would use.
Typically, the cover that gets back with your brand-new purchase will be a 4 area rigid foam filled cover that will divide in the center and go off both ends.
No big deal.
Till it starts to get heavy.
Which it constantly 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 flaw. Built in obsolescence since as soon as it is placed in use over the warm water in your swim spa it is inevitable.
It’s not from rain, so having a taper won’t 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 very small as they increase from the water surface area. 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 ends up being trapped in the cover.
It occurs gradually and on a Swim Spa Cover which is made from private areas, at differing speeds. So ultimately you’ll observe a couple of of the areas are truly getting heavy. The bar lifters on the ends of the swim spa aren’t much assistance since you still need to raise that heavy cover back up onto the spa which is a lot higher than a routine spa.
This is why SpaCap.com came up with a different design for their Swim Spa Covers
Instead of using a number of foam panels to build Swim Spa Covers that will eventually wind up in some land fill, they developed one that uses air chambers that don’t suck up wetness.
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 plan to keep using it everyday, SpaCap.com has the cover for it.
