Hot Tub 101
The Cover Story

Why you might want to consider a Hot Tub Cover Cap

We all know hot tubs can be a great way to spend the evening. Relaxing and unwinding after a long day at work is just what most people need to feel comfortable and at ease, but a hot shower and bath simply cannot compare to a good-old fashioned dip in a hot tub. That being said, if you want to keep the water in your hot tub nice and toasty every time you go to use it and don’t want to have to crank the temperature too high, having an adequate cover is critical. Hot tub covers offer enormous benefits when it comes to conserving heat and reducing energy usage and utility bills, but they can also be expensive. It is not uncommon for some manufacturers to charge a few hundred dollars for these devices.

While you can certainly save much more than this in the long run by installing a cover, this is only going to happen if you maintain it properly. So what do you do if you don’t want to leave your hot tub exposed? Simple, buy a cover cap! Think of this as an added layer of protection, an additional barrier that will keep both your hot tub and its cover in excellent condition. One of the great things about cover caps is that they essentially reinforce the benefits offered by the cover itself. It must be noted that many cover cap owners have reported increased water temperature sustainability, especially in the winter months when cold weather puts hot tub motors to work. Here are just a few reasons why buying a cover cap is a sound investment (regardless of what the climate is like where you live).

Get a Cover Cap for Maximum Protection

  • Cover caps are very cheap; for under $100 you will be protecting a product worth thousands. You will be sure to recoup your investment, as the cost-savings generated by lower heating bills will add up quickly.
  • Easy to install and maintain; cover caps are comprised of durable, interwoven fabric that can stand the test of time and the elements. Their elastic ends make the installation and removal process a breeze. Simply stretch the cap over your cover and it will automatically lock snugly in place.
    Most cover caps also come with long skirts that are used to drape over the sides of the hot tub cabinet walls; this prevents external hazards such as snow and ice from causing damage.
  • They can be used for year-round protection; many people fail to realize how harmful UV rays from the sun can be on hot tub covers. When left exposed to sunlight for prolonged periods of time, fading and increased wear and tear will occur.
