The time has come. You know it deep inside that place where "Honey, Do's" come from. While it is about as exciting as shopping for a spare tire, you need to order a replacement hot tub cover. This post will help you with the basic information you will need to select the proper spa cover for you and your environment.
We often get calls and inquiries about the foam inserts cracking or breaking on one or both sides of the hot tub cover or spa cover. Some of the reasons this may happen are children or even adults climbing, standing or sitting on top of the cover, storm damage, large dogs or animals climbing on top of the cover, etc. If your foam cores are cracked or broken because your cover is waterlogged and heavy then you musts replace the entire cover, due to the damage that water logging can cause to the vinyl as well.
We frequently get the question as to whether or not you should order a tapered or sloped cover versus a flat cover. Some clients have never had a tapered cover before and have no idea what the benefits would be. Some clients don’t know the benefits of ordering a tapered cover versus the flat cover they have already.
We get many inquiries on different ways to care for your hot tub and spa. Even though we solely sell hot tub covers and accessories for covers with our focus being on the care of the cover, we thought it would be helpful to provide a list of tips in reference to caring for your hot tub and spa.
Here at BeyondNice we frequently get the questions on how to measure for your new hot tub cover if your old cover is in bad shape or if you do not have a cover at all to measure. Sometimes the current cover you have may be warped, waterlogged and/ or misshapen due to any kind of damage or from just being plain old. If this is the case, you will want to consider measuring the hot tub itself and not the old beaten up cover. If you do not have a cover at all, you will need to measure the hot tub itself and provide those measurements for your new replacement cover.
How do you know which way to fold your hot tub cover? Here at BeyondNice , we want to make sure that you understand the way you order your hot tub cover fold will affect the way you can open your hot tub cover to use it.
When ordering a new hot tub cover, we get inquiries as to whether or not you should order tie down straps for your new cover. The questions also arise as to how to measure the location of the straps and how long should the straps be. Some clients ask, “Do I really need them?”
Here at BeyondNice, we often get the question about making a cover that is an unusual shape. Some covers are not the standard shapes and our clients need to make sure that they can order and receive a cover that will fit the shape of their hot tub. We have seen all kinds of shapes and sizes of spas, from kidney to triangles and we have made covers for them all.
We frequently get the question from clients when ordering a hot tub cover, about the skirt/flap of the cover. “What is the purpose of the flap and exactly how do can they measure the flap?” Well, here at BeyondNice we would like to shed some light on why a cover would need a skirt/flap and how to measure for the correct skirt length for your cover.
