A hot tub cover can help protect your inflatable hot tub cover from the sun’s harsh UV rays. This can extend the life of the tub and keep it from fading and discoloring prematurely, as well as help to minimize energy costs by retaining heat and reducing water evaporation.
Another benefit of a spa cover is to keep out debris like bugs, pine cones, leaves, and trash that could inadvertently find their way into your tub and damage the filtration system or pollute the water. This is especially important if you have children living in your home or pets that may have the potential to wander into the hot tub unsupervised and become injured or drown.
Floating Protection: The Essential Guide to Inflatable Hot Tub Covers
If you have an inflatable hot tub, a soft cover made from a synthetic fabric or similar material is the most common choice. These covers usually look like a large patio furniture cover and provide a simple, inexpensive way to protect your tub from the elements. However, they won’t lock in heat and may not be durable enough to withstand harsh weather. For this reason, we recommend only using a soft cover for your inflatable or portable hot tub if you don’t plan to use it frequently.
