The strong construction of our hard covers makes your investment more than worthwhile and extends the life of your spa. With so many benefits, it’s no surprise that our spa pool covers are such a popular choice among accessory buyers.

How Often Should You Replace a Spa Cover?
A spa can be an incredibly luxurious and beneficial addition to your home. However, it is important to ensure you are properly taking care of it to maximise your use.
One way to do this is by regularly replacing your spa cover; depending on the types of materials you have opted for and the frequency of your spa use, regular replacement may be necessary every two to four years depending on the location of the spa.
It is best practice to regularly inspect your spa cover for tears or damage. Aqua Pulse Spa covers are critical for maintaining optimal energy efficiency, retaining heat throughout the day to help you save on costs and preserve the life expectancy of your spa.
What to Do When Your Hot Tub Cover Gets ‘Heavy’?
Hot tub covers can become ‘heavy’ over time, making them nearly impossible to lift. This is not only inconvenient, but it can also be a safety hazard, as lifting the heavy cover could cause strain on your back and muscles.
The cover itself usually consists of foam and some sort of outer fabric that is designed to trap heat. When water from rain and snow saturates the cover, it becomes heavier and less effective at sealing in heat and eliminating energy loss.
After long-term use, the foam inside your hot tub cover breaks down and compresses, increasing the weight. If you live in an area prone to dust or other airborne particles, this will add bulk to your hot tub cover over time.
In order to prevent potential accidents and ensure the longevity of your hot tub cover, it’s important to regularly maintain it and take proactive measures, such as cleaning out debris from beneath the cover.
Additionally, if you are seeing signs that your hot tub cover has become too heavy for you to manage, it may be time to invest in a new one. Look for spa covers with durable materials, such as insulated vinyl or marine-grade threading, to ensure durability and reliable performance over many years of use. Careful maintenance should help keep your new spa cover lightweight and hassle-free for years!
What to Look for When Buying a Spa Cover
When shopping for a spa cover, there are several factors to consider to find one that best suits your needs.
- Make sure you measure your spa accurately - both length and width so that you can purchase a spa cover that fits perfectly.
- The strength and durability of the material should also be taken into account - heavy-duty vinyl and foam insulation can give your spa cover the protection it needs from wear while providing excellent energy savings.
- If you live in an area where temperatures may become extreme, look for a spa cover with durable materials as well as four locking straps that will keep your new cover secure, no matter what kind of weather hits.
- Ensure that whichever model you buy is backed by a warranty - so you know your investment will last a long time!
Is It Better to Leave a Spa Cover On or Off?
Although the answer to this question can vary depending on the type of spa and individual needs and preferences, most spa owners would recommend that your spa cover should always stay on when not in use.
Spa covers will help maintain optimal water temperature and chemical balance, as well as prevent debris such as leaves, twigs, rocks, and bugs from infiltrating your spa. Not forgetting the fact that they also provide important safety benefits by keeping children and pets away from potentially hazardous spa environments.
Keeping your cover on will ensure you get maximum enjoyment out of your spa experience while protecting you, your loved ones and the water environment within.
