It is a relaxing experience to unwind in a hot tub or a spa at the end of a tiring day. However, ensuring the safety and efficiency of the hot tub or spa by covering it correctly is crucial.
If you are looking for Spa Covers and Hot Tub Covers in Sonoma then you need to do your homework.
A high quality hot tub/spa insulating cover can pay for itself in as little as 6 months. These covers, designed for strength, durability and longevity are constructed of the finest materials available. They are designed to withstand the high temperatures of a spa.
Spa covers are tapered to let the rain, snow and ice to slip off like on a roof of the house. The covers come in thickness from 3 inches in the middle and 2 inches towards the edge or about 5 inches in the middle and 4 inches on the outward edges. The thickness decides the load bearing capacity of the foam. The size of the cover depends on the size of your spa.
Density: Density of the foam is the deciding factor for the insulation value, load bearing capacity and the life of the spa cover. The density is measured by pound per square-inch and is available in two options namely1 lbs and 1.5 lbs. At 1.5 lbs a cover has excellent strength and insulating ability, yet is light enough to maneuver on and off your spa. Some covers even have higher density foam if added load bearing is needed.
Evaporation and Heat: A cover is a must for spas. In order to keep the heat in and your gas/electric bill under control a cover that is easy to use and won’t water log should be a priority.
