Most Popular Swim Spa Covers – Brutal Truth

Since the invention of the swim spa one of the biggest challenges of owning one is keeping it covered. Regardless of how long you have owned yours replacing the cover with something that will do the job and still make it easy for you to use can be frustrating. Here is the brutal truth behind each of the top five designs.

We’ll breakdown the facts to help you pick which one makes the most sense for your needs.

The Traditional Folding Cover

These are the covers that typically come with the swim spa when you buy it. Unless you’ve had one before it’s what you expect.

However more and more spa dealers are reporting that although people are buying swim spas the new owners don’t want this type of cover.

The problem is, even with a fancy bar lifter, this cover will end up to heavy to move. Usually within a couple years. It happens slowly as the cover takes on weight and the user has to spend more energy trying to take it off and put it back on. Eventually, it will be the reason they stop using the swim spa as the weight becomes more of a struggle.

If you can still manage to fold the cover over the bar and push it back, the weight of the heavy cover will either rip the cover in half at the seam or rip the bar lifter off the side of your swim spa. So with that experience you’ll come to look for a different kind of swim spa cover.

Another downside to this particular design is that they are made cheaply overseas. With all the latest Covid 19 madness going on the import of this type of cover has virtually stopped. If and when it does begin again the costs are going to be significantly higher. So what was the cheapest option of the designs listed here may not be the case anymore. Dealers are telling people it may be three months before they are able to get these covers back in stock. Turns out, that is wishful thinking on the part of the dealer. They really have no way of knowing when it will be.

At present this is still the cheapest type of swim spa cover. If it’s the design you want to keep using you’ll need to budget for replacing it every other year so that you can keep using your swim spa. You might also want to budget for a gym membership where you can get in shape for lifting weights.

The Rolling Cover

This cover seems the solution to all the problems that the traditional swim spa covers had. It has the ease of use. One person can just roll it up. You can even roll it up while you’re inside the swim spa. Yes, it costs more but hey it’s getting you back into using the swim spa so that’s good. And the dealer says it will be the last swim spa cover you’ll need to buy.

Unfortunately, that isn’t quite true. Most swim spa owners report that these roll up swim spa covers break down within a couple years. The other down side is that they don’t insulate worth a damn. Our opinion is it’s a cool idea but it doesn’t insulate and it doesn’t last so in the end it’s just the next scam that spa dealers use to take your money. Like telling you the reason your foam filled swim spa cover got heavy was it didn’t have a taper. Then they sold you one with a taper and it got heavy too.

Brutal truth on this design is if you really like it you should budget to replace it every three years. Also since it doesn’t insulate the cost of heating you spa is going to go up. Way up. So you might want to take on a second job or start a little side business so you can save up enough. But hey, while it’s working it is easy to use.

The Auto Cover

These covers are great for safety, but little else. The ease of use is right up there but they don’t even try to claim that they insulate. You’re going to pay a good amount to have them professionally installed and then you’re going to pay a fortune to heat your swim spa.

Rain and debris just accumulate on top of it. Once the load gets to be too much it will either dump it all into the swim spa while it opens or it will just quit working and you’ll be paying someone to come out and fix it. In the end, they’ll tell you that you need a roof over it.

The brutal truth on this cover is, yes it is easy to use, and yes, it typically lasts longer than the first two covers. Does it keep rain and debris out of your spa? No. If you want to keep rain and debris out of your spa and use this type of cover you’ll need to put it inside a building. Does it keep the neighbor kid from accidentally falling into your spa? Yes, but so does putting the spa inside a building or a fenced yard.  You’re going to spend even more money heating your spa water with this type of cover and building a roof over it. But yes, it is easy to use.

 

The Power Cover

The most expensive cover on the market. You’ll pay more for this cover than you did for your swim spa. Maybe more than you paid for your car. But it does have ease of use in the bag. Push a button and the four pillars of power slowly lift the “garage roof” off the spa. I don’t know about you but when I go out for a swim I enjoy having the sky above me. Swimming with the platform of doom above me doesn’t quite give me the peace of mind I’m looking for.

You’ll pay to have it professionally installed and fixed anytime there is a problem. It does offer a nice flat surface when it’s closed so you can use it as a picnic table or set drinks on it while entertaining if that’s important to you.

It will probably be the last swim spa cover you buy though. Simply because once you’ve paid this much for a cover and had it break down again, and again, you’ll give up using the swim spa. In order to afford this type of cover you’ll need either to win the lottery or have one of your rich relatives die and leave you money.

The SpaCap Cover

The unconventional cover. The SpaCap Swim Spa Cover. This one will more than likely take you a bit to wrap your head around. It’s not flat, so setting food and beverages on it when you entertain won’t work. Ease of use? Well it was designed by a woman with back problems so if you use it like they tell you to it really is like taking a comforter off your bed. Most women report they can move it with one hand.

Here is another plus, it insulates better than any other cover. It can handle a snow load better than any foam filled, or roll away cover. These covers are used at snow lodges and cabins all over the world from the Rockies to the Alps. They tend to last longer and stay lightweight. They come in over  a hundred different colors.

They can handle the wind better than any other cover. Over the last thirty plus years these covers have been through hurricanes and tornados and not even one has ever blown off. Let that sink in for a minute. These swim spa covers are in use all across the country and have survived every major storm over the last 30 years.

The SpaCap Swim Spa Covers are also affordable. They cost a little more than the typical foam filled cover but less than any other of those listed above.

So if you want the most cost effective, energy efficient, easy to use swim spa cover, we would recommend the custom swim spa covers from SpaCap.com.

The Best Choice in Swim Spa Covers

A swim spa cover is vital for controling energy costs, and to protect the spa from external debris. Traditional spa covers are made with a foam core, and that foam is absorbent. As the foam takes on moisture from seepage and condensation from the heated water rising under a cold closed cover, the cover becomes heavy and difficult to handle. Eventually it will keep you from using your swim spa.

The vinyl material that is typically used to cover a foam core is rated by HOURS which means that when it’s exposed to the sun’s UV rays on a daily basis, it’s going to break down and vulnerable to tearing or being punctured.

The End 2 End Swim Spa Cover is a relative newcomer to the swim spa cover market. It claims to Lock In Heat and Keep Out Moisture. Admittedly it does have some advantages over the traditional multi piece folding foam swim spa covers. Its one-piece design using closed-cell foam instead of the traditional rigid foam panels prevents it from absorbing water, so it stays light and easy to manage. That much is true. The reason closed cell foam has not been used in the traditional rigid swim spa covers is that it isn’t rigid. It would sag without support.

The roll up cover overcomes that by having a support system built into the cover.

It also claims to have a UV-resistant coating that keeps it strong against the elements and new-looking for years.

The roll-on, roll-off design makes it easy for a single person to handle. In fact, this exclusive feature makes it possible to roll the cover off a swim spa in less than 60 seconds. It can be rolled in either direction, making it ideal for dual-temperature swim spas. You can roll back the pool side for your daily swim, and then roll back the spa side for relaxing at night. Aside from being extremely easy to take on an off, it requires minimal overhead clearance and gives full visibility on all sides of the swim spa as compared to traditional covers which can be problematic for applications with height restrictions or if you are trying to enjoy views. Admittedly, this is a great improvement over the traditional swim spa covers.

Custom made with the highest quality commercial-grade materials, this durable, energy-efficient and lockable safety cover is built to withstand all weather conditions. Its full-frame design makes it able to handle even large loads of snow, and thanks to its UV protected surface, it will not deteriorate from time spent in direct sunlight.

Made in the U.S.A., the End 2 End Swim Spa Covers are available in a range of colors. But not nearly as many as the SpaCap.com Swim Spa Covers which can be done in any of the over one hundred colors of Marine Grade Sunbrella.

So what’s the down side? Although the closed cell foam is an improvement it has to be supported to keep the rain and debris out of the spa. That support will eventually breakdown. It will never be able to handle as much of a snow load as the SpaCap Swim Spa Cover which recast right on the water surface.

The UV resistant coating is a code for, “it will handle a sun a little longer than a traditional cover” but not nearly as long as Marine Grade Sunbrella which is used on the SpaCap Swim Spa Cover.

In the end, The SpaCap.com Swim Spa Covers are still the overall best choice. No other swim spa cover starts insulating at the water surface. A huge advantage since the point is to seal in the heat and keep the water warm.

The SpaCap.com covers are all made in the USA and the Sunbrella fabric will last YEARS longer than any other material, no matter what UV resistant coating they use.

When you really want to get the best swim spa cover on the market you’re still better off with the swim spa cover custom made for your spa by SpaCap.com.

Getting the Run Around on Replacement Swim Spa Covers?

Many of our most recent customers have informed us that the places they would have normally gotten their replacement swim spa covers from are out of business or are just giving them the run around. If they are able to get ahold of someone they are being told it will be SIX MONTHS  or more before they get their new covers.

And then they call SpaCap.com and get the honest, straight truth about the cost and production schedule of their made in the USA swim spa covers.

Much like the movie Forest Gump,  SpaCap.com is likely to end up being the Forest Gump of the Swim Spa Cover industry.

One of the main reasons is those suppliers were relying on inexpensive goods produced overseas. The bottom line was these goods were mass produced, cheaply, made to last a couple years with a large profit margin for the dealers.

SpaCap.com meanwhile was building swim spa covers, made to order, from top of the line goods made in the USA. Their prices were higher but the swim spa covers they produced were made to last YEARS longer and stay lightweight.

Then along came the Corona Virus.

The suppliers that relied on goods produced overseas were caught in the storm. The stock they had on hand was quickly wiped out and the supply chain was cut off.

SpaCap.com just kept on building swim spa covers.

The inexpensive foam filled covers from overseas quickly became more expensive because of higher import fees. The worst hurricane season in years added to shipping challenges and delays. Major US ports became grid locked and the cheap import swim spa cover industry came to a virtual standstill.

The places that would have sold the cheap foam filled swim spa covers from overseas are not sure how much those same products will cost to import if or when things open up again. Some estimates that the cost could increase as much as 180%.

Meanwhile SpaCap.com just keeps on building swim spa covers.

If you were wondering why the foam swim spa covers were taking so long to get and costing so much more than they used to, the reason is simple. Materials from overseas.

Yet, at SpaCap.com they are still plugging away, lining up to be the “last man standing” in swim spa cover manufacturing. Their family owned business never shut down like so many other industries across the country. Yes, their lead time and shipping costs have increased since Amazon has taken over shipping priority across the country but their Made In the USA Swim Spa Covers are still going strong.

If you would like to get a new swim spa cover for your spa before the next decade, and your ready for a lightweight, easy to use swim spa cover, covered in Sunbrella that lasts for YEARS instead of vinyl that is rated by HOURS, visit SpaCap.com.

Swim Spa Covers Made in the USA

The new world order. Suddenly we are all more aware of products coming from overseas. As the importing world comes to a virtual standstill products made in the USA become vital.

With the coming of the Corona Virus, products cheaply made and imported for sale here in the states have abruptly been interrupted. All kinds of products have been effected but the hot tub and swim spa cover market certainly has.

Folks looking for replacement Swim Spa Cover are getting told by their spa dealers that it may be six months before they are able to supply new covers. It turns out even that estimate may end up being wishful thinking. Not only that but the cost of those covers may go up by as much as one hundred eighty percent.

So much for inexpensive Swim Spa Covers. It was easy to justify buying a cheap cover that would only last a couple years when the supply was so readily available. But now as our awareness of all things “overseas” has been drilled into focus it’s all little bit harder to swallow.

Meanwhile, SpaCap.com has been making hot tub and swim spa covers here in the United States for the last forty years. Each and every cover is custom made and sold factory direct to consumers across the country.

The materials that SpaCap.com uses to build their Swim Spa Covers are covered with Sunbrella fabric which is rated by YEARS as opposed to the vinyls on imported covers which are rated by HOURS.

Don’t simply buy another Swim Spa Cover that is going to end up heavy or broken like the last one you got from the local spa dealer. Check out SpaCap.com and get a Swim Spa Cover that is going to be easy to use for many years to come.

SpaCap Swim Spa Covers won’t break like foam filled Swim Spa Covers

Saggy Cover

If your foam filled up swim spa cover accumulates water externally, you’ll need a brand-new Lightweight Swim Spa Cover This indicates that whatever was given in regards to the support of the foam boards is currently curved or busted. You’ll find commonly a C-channel that runs along both halves of the spa cover, where they meet at the hinge. Some cover suppliers will make use of materials like aluminum or thin steel at this point, which will certainly bend under weight (dogs, kids, snow), or (more usually) because of the weight of the cover itself.

Is a Roll Away Swim Spa Cover The Best Option?

The latest idea in swim spa covers is the roll up cover. It seems like such a good idea. It has to be better than the foam filled swim spa covers that always get to heavy for you to lift right?

The foam filled covers are easy enough when they are brand new, but then they start getting heavy. So you go in to your local spa dealer and they sell you on the “bar lifter” idea. Which is sort of better but you still have to lift one side to fold it over the bar.

Then eventually the cover gets too heavy even for the lifter and it either rips the cover in half at the seams or it rips the bar lifter off the side of your swim spa.

So you’re not falling for that again.

Now the spa dealer is selling the roll away cover. Look how easy it is. One person can just roll it up. And he tells you this cover is built to last as long as your spa. Unfortunately, that’s just BS and he knows it.

These roll up swim spa covers are going to last a couple years at best. You’ll pay hundreds of dollars more for them, and they won’t insulate any better than the rigid foam swim spa cover did. It’s just the latest sales pitch.

The best swim spa covers are not the rigid foam filled covers that always get heavy or the roll up covers that always end up breaking down.

No the best swim spa covers on the planet start insulating at the water surface. (Weird right? Since that’s what we want to keep warm). They can handle any snow load, so much in fact that they have been used for years in mountain resorts all over the world from the Rockies to the Alps.

They can handle any wind storm, including hurricanes and tornadoes. When the wind blows your F150 into your neighbors house you’ll still be able to invite him over to relax in your swim spa while the insurance agent writes you both a check.

The best swim spa covers don’t use vinyl on the top because vinyls, ALL Vinyls are rated by HOURS outdoors. No, the best swim spa covers use Marine Grade Sunbrella on the top because it’s rated by YEARS outdoors and when your neighbor is replacing his handy dandy roll up swim spa cover because it fell apart, your swim spa cover with Sunbrella will still be like brand new.

If you’re tired of replacing your swim spa covers with something that is just going to break your back, your spa or your bank account, go to SpaCap.com. They have been building lightweight, easy to use swim spa covers for as long as there have been swim spas.

Dimensions and shape

Price or budget

Well, definitely these two always go hand in hand. You will always have a budget in mind and then there is the price at which the product retails. It is always important that you consider these two before making up your mind. Take the time to check out if the model you are buying is worth spending your money on it.
