Hot tub covers are important. Whether you just purchased your first hot tub or consider yourself a hot tub enthusiast, you may wonder why investing in a quality cover makes good financial sense. Instead of a lengthy lecture, the team at Hot Tub Covers Canada would like to share our perspective.
In no specific order, here are our top 7 reasons why hot tub covers are important:
1 – Conserves energy, and reduces costly hydro bills, by keeping in the heat.
2 – Reduces the depletion of hot tub chemicals caused by environmental factors (ie. the sun).
3 – Keeps debris from entering the hot tub water and plumbing lines. Contaminants can include leaves, insects, sand and dirt.
4 – Northern climate hot tub users need a barrier to keep snow and other winter elements at bay, while maintaining water temperature.
5 – Acrylic hot tub shells are suspect to UV damage and fade. A properly fitted cover, with a skirt, will provide invaluable protection.
6 – Children of all ages are drawn to hot tubs. While the volume of water is small compared to a pool, a hot tub is still a large body of water. Avoid accidental drowning by ensuring your cover has a lock and key mechanism.
7 – Pets (and pests) have an uncanny knack for hot tub exploration. Keep furry friends safe by using a hot tub cover when your unit it not in use.
We hope these quick reminders of why hot tub covers are important gave you pause for thought. From a proper fit to ensure efficient operation, to reducing your maintenance time, a high-quality cover can also be a key safety feature in your yard. Protect yourself, and your hot tub. Instead of viewing a hot tub cover purchase as a financial burden, consider it a worthwhile investment.
