Since spa covers can cost several hundred dollars, you may be asking yourself if they’re worth the investment. Ask no more. Here are four reasons why spa covers are an essential part of spa ownership.
Spa Covers Keep Your Spa Hot
You wouldn’t buy a refrigerator without a door, so why buy a spa without a cover. Experts estimate that it takes about 30 minutes to raise the water temperature on a spa by one degree. Spa covers conserve heat and help with energy savings.
Spa Covers Protect from Debris
Yes, you want to keep out the dirt. However, many other items can sneak into your spa as well, like leaves, bugs and little critters. These items can cause serious damage to your water pump. Using a spa cover keeps your spa clean.
Spa Covers Help Protect the Spa from the Sun
Direct sun exposure of an uncovered spa can blister the acrylic layer and cause the underside to delaminate from the fiberglass shell reinforcement. That means one of the best ways to avoid costly repairs is to use a spa cover.
Spa Covers are Important to Child Safety
According to the July 6, 2011 press release from Safe Kids USA, drowning is the leading cause of accidental death among children ages one to four. Almost all spa covers have the ability to support the weight of a small child should they ever venture onto the cover. Therefore, spa covers can be instrumental in child safety.
Ultimately, spa covers are an important component of any spa. They protect your investment and children while offering energy savings and the enjoyment of your spa for years to come.
