Swim Spas represent special challenges when it comes 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 obstacle 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 interesting occasion in life. You’re anticipating the exercise you’ll get from using it. Perhaps you’re a little relieved to have lastly made a selection from the various models you took a look at. At any rate, you most likely weren’t thinking much about the cover you would use.
Usually, the cover that gets back with your new purchase will be a 4 section stiff foam filled cover that will split in the center and go off both ends.
No big deal.
Till 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 flaw. Integrated in obsolescence since 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 will not 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 molecules of steam are very 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 ends up being trapped in the cover.
It happens gradually and on a Swim Spa Cover which is made from individual areas, at varying speeds. So ultimately you’ll observe one or two of the sections are actually getting heavy. The bar lifters on the ends of the swim spa aren’t much help due to the fact that you still need to lift that heavy cover back up onto the spa which is a lot higher than a routine spa.
This is why SpaCap.com created a different design for their Swim Spa Covers
Instead of using numerous foam panels to build Swim Spa Covers that will ultimately end up in some garbage dump, they designed one that uses air chambers that don’t suck up moisture.
In fact SpaCap.com Swim Spa Covers are lightweight, insulate better, will not blow away in a wind storm or be damaged 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 mean to keep using it daily, SpaCap.com has the cover for it.
