How Do I Know When it’s Time to Replace My Hot Tub Cover?

You may need a new hot tub cover if you notice any of the following conditions:

  • The vinyl cover is torn, cracked or brittle. This can affect the safety, heat retention and beauty of your cover.
  • The cover is not forming a tight seal against the top edge of the hot tub, which can cause heat loss and a reduction of your spa’s efficiency.
  • Straps and locks are not functioning. If they are not in good condition, it may affect the security of your hot tub.
  • The cover has become heavy, is sagging or has puddles forming on top, indicating that damage to the foam core has occurred.
