If you own a spa, you may have heard how much easier spa cover lifters can make using a spa, which has made you want to purchase one for your spa. Perhaps you also read our recent blog about spa cover lifters, and you have decided that you are done fighting with your spa cover, which has led you to decide to purchase a spa cover lifter. Either way, before you run out and buy a spa cover lifter for your spa, there are some things you will first need to consider. Here are a few things you will need to consider before purchasing a spa cover lifter.
One of the first things you will need to consider before purchasing a spa cover lifter is how much area you have above and around your spa. This is because you will need a certain amount of clearance in order for a spa cover lifter to work, though the amount of clearance differs greatly from one model to the next. If your spa is in a tight space or is inside a gazebo, you will need to measure the space around your spa and then look at the details of the spa cover lifter you are looking at to see if you have enough space for it to function properly.
Size, Shape, and Weight
Another important thing you will need to consider is the size shape and weight of your spa cover. Certain spa cover lifters are meant to fit onto and work with certain types of spa covers, and for this reason they will only be able to handle that type of spa cover. Make sure that you are purchasing a spa cover lifter that fits the spa cover you have.
The final thing you will need to consider before choosing a spa cover lifter is the location of your spa. If your spa is located outdoors and/or it is not under some type of cover, then you will need to make sure that you purchase a spa cover lifter whose mechanisms can handle exposure to the elements and direct sunlight. Generally, it will say on the specifications if it is made to handle that kind of stress or not.
