Is Your SwimSpa Cover Hurting Your Back?

Even if you are physically strong a stiff breeze can capture the big flat surface area and the SwimSpa cover can quickly get away from you. If you use your tub alone or are not physically strong enough to wrestle it off your swimspa, you require to think about a Hot Tub Cover Lift.

Or better yet consider a cover that doesn’t employ rigid foam panels that can become saturated and heavy. The SpaCap SwimSpa cover is lightweight and built to stay that way. Many swimspa owners report that they can remove their SpaCap Lightweight swimspa covers with one hand. No lifter required.

A cover lift is a mechanical device that connects to the swimspa cabinet body or deck and is created to help you remove your swimspa cover. There can be various methods of operation but they all allow a single person to quickly and safely remove the cover from their swimspa. Providing the foam is not saturated. What happens then is the lifter mechanism will either tear the cover in half because the fabric hinge is not meant to handle the weight of saturated foam or worse, the lifter will be torn off the side of the hot tub.

Cover lifts can also serve another function, and that’s of storage while you are utilizing your hot tub. When you remove the top you need to put it somewhere. If you do not have a deck, that frequently means putting it on the ground. Even if you do have a deck, you may not desire a substantial hot tub cover obstructing the method.

Quick and basic, with nothing to wear out – other than for perhaps that costly new hot tub cover you’ve simply purchased. The friction of moving the spa cover back and forth may eventually harm the vinyl covering so this is something you have to enjoy thoroughly.

Or again you could just eliminate the need for a lifter by getting the only kind of cover that uses air instead of foam to insulate. A Lightweight swimspa covers that is as easy to use as taking a fluffy comforter off a bed. Something designed by a single woman so she could use her hot tub by herself. The only Lightweight swimspa coversthat comes in Sunbrella Marine Fabric instead of vinyl. Imagine having a cover thats not only lightweight but that can match your decor. But lets keep going with the whole cover lifter idea.

Another range shops the folded hot tub cover in a vertical position so that it obstructs the view on one side. Make sure that the cover can be locked in the up position so there is no risk it can fall back down, injuring somebody.

Wait did that just say the cover could fall on you while your in the spa? That’s like the opposite of helpful.

A third kind of lift helps you to remove the hot tub cover and holds the folded cover behind the spa. It often takes a little bit more effort to run this kind, and you do have to have about a foot of clearance behind the spa for the cover. But the lower profile removes the concern of a blocked view.

This is also the most common type of cover lifter sold. What anyone can tell you is that it doesn’t help you fold the cover over the first time once it gets heavy. So if the cover is too heavy to lift, it isn’t going to help you at all. And when they say, “It takes a little more effort to operate” it may qualify as the biggest understatement of the year.

One item to research study thoroughly is whether the lift you are considering locations tension on center hinge of your swim spa cover. This hinge is normally not developed to carry the full weight of the cover in a hanging position, and some kind of lifts can place a real pressure on it. Just so there are no surprises it would be wise to ask this concern prior to making your purchase. There are some after market packages that can avoid this problem, however that is at an additional expense. Some lifts are designed to move to weight to the outer edge of the tub and get rid of the tension to the hinge.

Lifts are crafted to fit various spa sizes and the majority of swimspa cover raises can be installed by the homeowner utilizing tools you would usually have around your house.

Cover lifts can likewise serve another function, and that’s of storage while you are using your hot tub. When you eliminate the leading you have to put it someplace. That regularly indicates putting it on the ground if you do not have a deck. Even if you do have a deck, you may not desire a substantial hot tub cover blocking the method.

After investing countless dollars on a hot tub, cover, chemicals, and operation expenses, spending a few hundred dollars more for a cover lift will make your hot tub experience and the pressure on your back much less demanding.

If you utilize your tub alone or are not physically strong enough to battle it off your SwimSpa spa, you need to think about a swimspa cover Lift that won’t get heavy or break. Something like say the SpaCap

Bang Bang in Spanish

Kataploon

In High school Curt had taken German in order to talk with his aging great grand parents. Which worked out fine for the last few years of their lives. His great grandmother would often be speaking in English and then slip into German not realizing it. She had lived an incredible life. Coming over to America as a young teenager, arriving at Ellis Island, none of her family that was already here had come to meet her. Speaking very little English at the time she didn’t know what to do or where to go. As luck would have it, the Kennedy family were there that day looking to hire people to work at their estate. So she was hired and worked for a dozen years as an upstairs maid at the Kennedy mansion. Eating and sleeping on the property she never left and had nothing to spend her money on since her needs were being met. Eventually she wrote her brothers. When they found out she had saved up a good amount of money, they came out and got her. They took her money and married her off. Curt’s great grandfather then moved her out west and opened a saloon. So she had gone from being a young immigrant, to working for the Kennedy’s, to working in a saloon out west. She had a wicked sense of humor and stories galore. As a young teenager Curt would sit and play cards with her. She would always win because but it didn’t matter to Curt. He was just there to listen to her stories and laugh at her jokes. But when she passed away, he had no reason to speak German anymore. 

Working in an area with a heavy Mexican immigrant population, he quickly realized that it might have been more useful to have studied Spanish.

Coming across a Mexican man that was wanted for murder, Curt pulled his gun and said “Halt.” The man just smiled and started to go for his weapon. 

“Stop. Don’t move. Freeze,” Curt kept trying but the man just pretended he didn’t understand and kept going, smiling.

Then Curt remembered one day in high school, a couple of his friends were running down the hall pointing their fingers at each other and saying ‘kataploon’ as they pretended to shoot at each other. He had asked one of them what it meant and they had answered it means ‘bang-bang’ in Spanish. 

So now when he really needed it, the word came back to him and he looked at the man and said, “Stop or Kataploon!”

The Mexican man got a puzzled look on his face, stopped and said in perfect English, “What’s Kataploon?”

“It’s bang bang in Spanish,” explained Curt.

“No it’s not!” Declared the Mexican man.

“Well, how do you say bang bang in Spanish,” asked Curt.

“Bang bang,” said the man, a bit exasperated at how stupid the officer was.

“Oh,” said Curt. “By the way, since we now both know you speak English, I’m going to shoot your ass if you don’t put your hands up.”

The man complied and was arrested without incident. He probably couldn’t wait to tell the story  to others about what an idiot Curt was.

Two Pieces

Dating for a police officer is a little different. At least for Curt. There weren’t a string of one night stands. He wanted to be respectful, thoughtful and careful. When he met a girl he was interested in there would usually be a string of dates before they ever kissed.

Cathy Burns, a beautiful waitress at the Richland TJ’s restaurant. She had a pleasant, easy smile and casual nature. 

One night after he had ordered his dinner and Cathy was refilling his coffee, Curt got up the nerve, “So, Cathy. I wonder if it would be possible, I mean, may I request your company to join me for a movie and dinner some time?”

Cathy grinned. “Why Officer Curt, if that’s how you ask a girl out on a date… I thought you’d never ask.” She wrote her phone number on the back of his hand.

“I’m on nights until Wednesday. Can we plan on going this Friday if you don’t already have plans,” asked Curt.

“Well, I was going to do laundry and watch TV but I think I can clear my schedule,” Cathy responded with a wink.

That Friday Curt went and picked Cathy up and asked her, “So where would you like to have dinner?”

 “How about Round Table Pizza,” said Cathy. “I really love Pizza.”

Curt drove there and parked then got out and went around to open the door for Cathy and escorted her inside.

Once they were seated, “So what’s your favorite pizza,” asked Curt.

“Pepperoni and black olive,” Cathy answered without hesitation.

“Okay, then there’s no need to waste time looking at the menu,” said Curt with a smile. “What size should we order?”

“Let’s get a large,” replied Cathy. Again as if this was a predetermined issue.

“Are you sure? A large pizza can feed a family of twelve or six lumber jacks. I’m hungry and willing but I doubt I could eat half of a medium,” asked Curt.

“No, I’m really hungry and I really love pizza,” Cathy affirmed.

So Curt ordered the large. When it arrived Cathy ate two pieces. Curt could only eat four even as hungry as he was. That left half the pizza untouched. 

After dinner they went to see a movie and Curt drove her home.

The next time he asked her out Curt asked, “Where would you like to eat tonight? How about something besides pizza?”

“No, I really want pizza,” answered Cathy. 

“You’re kidding. Last time you only ate two pieces. We ended up feeding the homeless. Which I don’t have a problem with but I’d like you to enjoy dinner. Maybe a burger or steak,” said Curt.

“No, can we please go for pizza,” Cathy begged.

He drove her to Round Table and escorted her inside. Once they were seated and the waitress came to take their order, Curt looked at Cathy, “How about we get a medium this time?”

“I’m really hungry,” said Cathy with a pouty face for emphasis.

Curt looked at the waitress, “Is there a group of hungry teenagers that you can have standing by? We’ll have the large pepperoni with black olives please.”

The pizza arrived and again Cathy only ate two pieces. Curt began to debate whether this might be some kind of test. Was this Cathy’s way of determining her power over the guy or maybe how gullible he was personally? 

They went to another movie and he took Cathy home.

Before he asked her out again, Curt had to consider the pros and cons. Cathy was fun, intelligent, good company, and easy on the eyes. The only strike against her was the pizza issue. Still, he was interested. So he asked her out again.

Once he had picked her up and they were driving off he started, “Look, Cathy, you’re great company and I really like spending time with you. But I gotta say the whole large pizza deal is a real set back. Can we eat somewhere else tonight?”

“I know, I’m sorry,” Cathy answered. “But I really love pizza. I just really wanted you to like me and I didn’t want you to think I was a pig.”

“Not an issue, really. So can we eat somewhere else,” Curt begged.

“Can we go for pizza one more time? I promise I’ll eat more this time,” Cathy asked.

Curt looked at her. “Seriously? I’ll take you anywhere. Any restaurant in the Tri-Cities. Hell, if you asked I’d drive you to Yakima and let you pick a place to eat there. I’m beginning to feel stupid taking you for pizza.”

Cathy looked back and said, “I know I’ve been a pain in the ass. But honestly, I really love pizza. I don’t get it very often and I really crave it. I promise I’ll eat more this time.”

“No other food will do? Any other restaurant? Honestly? Is this you’re way of testing to see if I’m really interested in you? Come on,” Curt tried to negotiate.

“Please,” Cathy begged.

“Do you have friends that are going to Round Table and waiting for our left overs,” Curt chuckled.

Again, seated and ready to order, Curt tried one more time, “I love pizza too, and I’m hungry but even starving there is only so much I can eat. Can we settle on a medium size and see how it goes?”

“I know, I know. But I’m really hungry, and I promise I’ll eat more. Just one more time can we get a large,” Cathy reaffirmed.

“How about a medium, a bucket of pop and the desert of your choice,” Curt was still trying to end up with less than half of the pizza left over when they left.

“Please,” said Cathy sticking to her guns.

“Are we being watched? Have you made a bet with some friends that you can make me be stupid for you,” Curt said looking around the room.

“No, I just really want pizza. Please?”

Curt looked at the waitress, “How long have you worked here?”

“About a year,” answered the waitress smiling.

“Do other girls come in and ask for a large and then only eat two pieces? Is this some kind of dating thing,” Curt asked.

“No. Most folks settle for a medium unless it’s a group of people,” the waitress responded.

Curt looked at Cathy, “Can we please just get a medium? I can’t eat that much and based on your past performance neither can you.”

Cathy looked down, “I know. But can we please, just one more time get a large?”

“Fine,” said Curt slightly disappointed with himself for being manipulated into doing it again when he had been so determined not to. He looked up at the waitress, “Just out of curiosity, have you ever felt used and abused on a date? Never mind. That’s none of my business. We’ll take the large and can you get me an appointment to have my head examined?”

When the pizza showed up Curt took a piece and set it on his plate.

Cathy began folding pieces over onto each other and started eating three pieces at a time. 

Curt was stunned. Cathy continued not just with the first three pieces, but the next three and then again. It was all Curt could so to get two pieces for himself before the whole pizza was gone.

As she was finishing the last of it and licking her fingers, Curt finally asked, “What the hell? Who are you and what have you done with Cathy?”

“I told you I liked pizza,” she answered.

“Yeah, so do I but before you could only eat two pieces. What happened?”

“Well, I was just to shy before. After our other dates I’d go home and pig out. I just didn’t want to really eat in front of you,” Cathy explained.

“Okay, how about you back it off a little and let me get a few pieces. You know just a little shy is okay,” said Curt.

SwimSpa Cover Replacement

SwimSpa Covers are important, if you want to keep that water hot inside the swimspa. Unfortunately, SwimSpa Covers don’t last forever. Despite what your spa dealer could possibly have actually promised, there shall come a time that you are have to need a replacement Lightweight SwimSpa Cover

Exactly what are the signs when a swimspa cover has given up the ghost? There might be evident indicators, in addition to some that are not so evident indications. Here are 5 signs of swimspa cover distress to consider.

Saggy Cover

If your foam loaded swimspa cover accumulates water on the surface, you’ll need a brand-new Lightweight SwimSpa Cover This represents that whatever was given in terms of the support of the foam boards is currently curved or broken. You’ll discover normally a C-channel that leaves both halves of the spa cover, where they meet at the joint. Some cover producers will certainly utilize products like light weight aluminum or slim steel at this moment, which will certainly flex under weight (pets, youngsters, snow), or (more typically) as a result of the weight of the cover itself.

If this is the case, trying to bleed a longer time from the cover is simply going to end up costing you much more going forward considering that whatever insulation worth it might potentially have possessed is gone at this phase. Postponing the inevitable will just cost you more in your power bills. Yet much more notably thinking about an usage perspective, you are most likely not likely to wish to tinker your cover when it has water on top of it. Inevitably, you’re using your swimspa much less, which is definitely a sin. Do not be a sinner.

Something to consider here. No matter what your hot tub dealer has to say about it, if he only wants to offer you an additional foam loaded SwimSpa Covers, it is 100% absolutely mosting likely to become much like the one you need to replace currently.

It will not matter whether it is shrink wrapped in Kevlar as well as enhanced with titanium, if it has foam inside, it is destined fail.

Puddle Cover

Water is heavy, at 8 pounds. each gallon, it could build up quickly. One more situation of broken support network. Possibly started out with a little kink in the network, which began to puddle some water, and also a whole lot more water– as well as currently it looks like a new SwimSpa Covers remains in order.

Just like Saggy Cover, this results from making use of foam panels above a swimspa. Foam panels will fill from the steam coming off the spa water. Not one point will avoid it other than not utilizing foam within your SwimSpa Covers!

The spa dealer may recommend you to try to flip the panels over inside the cover to add to its useful life. Other than the zippers as well as the vinyl material weren’t made to be opened and shut beyond the preliminary padding of the foam.

When a cover starts a progressive puddle, it might never be turned around. It’s time to get a replacement SwimSpa Covers As we stated above, putting it off implies you’ll be utilizing the swimspa less (a transgression) and wasting cash on the home heating costs.

Water Logged SwimSpa Cover

This may be a SwimSpa Covers that weighs regarding 3x what it did when it was new. They commonly obtain so heavy that they end up being alongside impossible to make use of short of the help of a Seal Team. They can likewise damage SwimSpa Covers lifters once they get too hefty. That’s due to the fact that the cover lifter is not made to handle a heavy cover. Bet the dealer really did not mention that when he offered it to you.

When the foam core is tackling water– and also, is not draining. This does not signify that rain water has actually in some way gotten into your cover, or snow or another outside source. It takes place when heavy steam rises from the cozy spa water then because it’s a very small particle, solves into the foam. Once it enters of the foam it cools down and turns back right into water, and also becomes trapped due to that the water particle is also large to drop out.

The best way to prevent it would be to never make use of a foam filled cover on the swimspa. In spite of just what the producer asserts to cover it in or the method they package it, the foam will at some point come to be saturated. Period.

It is time for a brand-new replacement hot tub cover. Again, putting it off at this point is simply going to cost you extra in your energy consumption and unless you have a Seal Team helping you, you typically aren’t most likely to be using your spa very frequently. (Still a transgression).

If you intend to be creative, you could take the cover from your spa and also store it in your garage for a number of months. When the SwimSpa Covers is far from the moisture as well as being kept inside a completely dry location, ultimately the wetness within the cover will certainly vaporize (back to a smaller particle) as well as certainly the foam will certainly lighten again. It takes months for it to completely dry totally where instance you should have an additional replacement cover for your spa while you wait. Keep in mind: The cover might still warp wildly out of shape while it dries out.

If you decide to revolve your covers every 3 months, you might be capable of making them last until the products begin ahead apart. See Below.

Torn & Worn SwimSpa Cover.

Whenever the fabric (aquatic grade vinyl on the conventional foam filled SwimSpa Covers) is subjected to its limit of sunlight as well as weather condition, it comes to be fragile and also starts to deteriorate. Ultimately, holes as well as tears occur that will.

Because ALL Plastic, even one of the most pricey Marine Grade, are ranked by HOURS outdoors.

Using a spa cover protectant is just one more way for cover dealers to take your loan. If you would like to spend on weekly basis rubbing down your SwimSpa Covers with conditioner, be our guest yet the smart point to do would certainly be to get the cover that does not have VINYL on the outside. Like claim the SpaCap.com Lightweight SwimSpa Cover that usage Sunbrella Marine textile, which is ranked by YEARS outdoors.

Still, if the SwimSpa Cover isn’t heavy yet, you could hold off purchasing another one right now providing you do not mind the appearance of Duct Tape. If you would like a couple of pointers, look into some episodes of the “Red Green Show” on YouTube. Red covers the finer factors of Duct Tape.

Smelly SwimSpa Cover.

Stuffy, mildew, old wet canine– whatever your SwimSpa Covers smells like, if it’s a bad odor, that probably suggests that you now have bacteria creating inside the hot tub cover. It possibly also suggests the cover is water logging (see above).

Currently we have crossed over from inconvenient to undesirable.

Exactly what are you inhaling when this is exactly what you smell?

Entirely taking down of the cover, and also spraying it with Lysol won’t help! Given that the source of the odor, Also Known As the mold as well as mildew are stuck inside the foam! The best you may be able to achieve would certainly be to kill exactly what gets on the beyond the plastic or foam however you are not most likely to touch what’s inside the foam. Plus now your cover scents like Lysol, absolutely nothing kills the state of mind faster compared to breathing in something that advises you of exactly how the institution custodian tidied up vomit.

The origin of the problem? That premium quality foam used in typical hot tub covers. Regardless of how much a dealer might attempt to offer just how it is exceptionally resistant to water absorption and also germs formation, it will certainly still occur as well as they understand it.

When you take place to be all set for a new Lightweight SwimSpa Cover, see to it that it’s not made using a foam core.

If you were curious concerning your SwimSpa Covers making it an additional year, do not wait. It’s your basic impulse telling you something crucial– swim spa season is year-round! Get ready now!

The Best SwimSpa Cover

Swim Spas represent special obstacles when it concerns covering them.
We can all concur that the swim spa has to be covered when not in use for all the same reasons a hot tub requires a cover. The obstacle is that because of the length of the swim spa and the height of the sides, eliminating and changing the Swim Spa Cover can be a lot more difficult.
Getting a brand-new swim spa is an exciting occasion in life. You’re looking forward to the exercise you’ll receive from using it. Possibly you’re a little relieved to have actually finally selected from the various designs you looked at. At any rate, you most likely weren’t thinking much about the Swim Spa Cover you would use.
Normally, the cover that gets back with your new purchase will be a 4 section rigid foam filled Swim Spa Cover that will split in the center and go off both ends.
No big deal.
Up until it starts to get heavy.
Which it always does.
Every rigid foam filled Swim Spa Cover ever made winds up the same way and it is not the fault of the user. It’s a style defect. Integrated in obsolescence since as soon as it is placed in use over the warm water in your swim spa it is unavoidable.
It’s not from rain, so having a taper won’t make any difference. In fact you might have it under a roof and the Swim Spa Cover will still get heavy.
The factor is the steam from the water. The particles of steam are really little as they rise from the water surface. They make their method into the little cracks and crevices in the foam. Then as the steam cools it forms back into a liquid and becomes caught in the Swim Spa Cover
It happens slowly and on a Swim Spa Cover which is made of private areas, at differing speeds. So eventually you’ll notice one or two of the sections are actually getting heavy. The bar lifters on completions of the swim spa aren’t much assistance due to the fact that you still have to raise that heavy Swim Spa Cover back up onto the spa which is a lot higher than a routine spa.
This is why SpaCap.com developed a different style for their Lightweight Swim Spa Covers
Instead of using several foam panels that will eventually wind up in some landfill, they designed Lightweight Swim Spa Covers that uses air chambers that don’t suck up moisture.
In fact SpaCap.com Lightweight Swim Spa Covers are easy to use, insulate better, will not blow away in a wind storm or be harmed by snow or hail.
Covered with Sunbrella Marine material, these Lightweight Swim Spa Covers will not fade, or fall apart at the seams either. So if you own a swim spa, and you intend to keep using it daily, SpaCap.com has the Swim Spa Cover for it.

Your SwimSpa Cover Stinks

Hey, no offense, but your SwimSpa Cover smells bad. Perhaps you’ve gotten used to it?
Don’t worry, it takes place to all spa owners at some time or another; water is among nature’s most erosive compounds. Moisture leaks in and ends up being trapped between the outer vinyl shell and the plastic wrapped foam cores. The warm, damp environment is perfect for mold and mildew and other kinds of stinky stuff.
If moisture has permeated even more into the plastic wrapped foam core, the cover becomes waterlogged, which can quickly grow all sorts of dark and stinky slime, however also make the cover actually hard to remove, and not as reliable at keeping the heat in the spa. Time for a better type of SwimSpa Cover

Stinky SwimSpa Cover?!?
• Broken or damaged. Split foam cores, ripped or used areas, torn seams. A SwimSpa Cover that loses it’s slanted line, to keep water running off correctly, will eventually start to puddle water, which is most likely time to purchase a new SwimSpa Cover! A SwimSpa Cover with threadbare areas in the vinyl is likewise problem, and although you can stave off the inevitable with a duct tape repair, the water will win, eventually.
• Not Removed Regularly. Remove your SwimSpa Cover weekly for 2 hours of airing out. A much better SwimSpa Cover can stand up to longer durations, but it’s a great practice to get rid of the cover and let it get some air on a weekly basis. If you can easily open the zipper to allow moisture to leave do so, but don’t eliminate fragile foam panels unless absolutely required.

Actually, this is just hogwash The problem is the foam itself. It would be great if it were put into use in a totally dry setting. Unfortunately, swim spas by their very nature are filled with warm water. Warm water creates steam and steam rises up and gets into the cracks and crevises in the foam until it gets so heavy you can’t lift it anymore. The only way to avoid it is to never put it on the swim spa.
• Poorly Made. It’s easy to make a SwimSpa Cover with tape and staples, but it won’t stop moisture very well. Even the very best foam filled Lightweight SwimSpa Covers with vacuum-wrapped and heat bonded joint are not going to keep the intense wetness from your spa from reaching the foam core. The only real option is a SwimSpa Cover utilizes air to insulate rather than foam.
• Bad Spa Water. If the spa water is not kept routinely with sanitizer and filtering, or is not stunned often enough, germs and algae can benefit from a congenial environment to grow. Low pH, high chlorine or high ozone levels can also weaken the underside of your SwimSpa Cover. Due to the fact that the cover is so near to the spa, it soaks up the chemistry of the spa. Clean, clear and hygienic water is the very best environment to prevent foul-smelling spa covers. (Sorry but this is just BS) The reality is the spaces in the foam are almost laboratory conditions for growing mold and mildew. Your spa chemistry is not going to stop that.
• Not Cleaned/ Conditioned. For outside Lightweight SwimSpa Covers, unless your back deck is covered or your spa is in a gazebo, you have sun, rain, pollen, dust, contamination, and animals to contend with. If you have a partial roofing system, that can be worse than no roofing at all, if an overhanging eave drains water onto the SwimSpa Cover Tidy and condition a spa cover 2-4 times each year, so that it constantly looks excellent, and is safeguarded from the components. Once again, this truly isn’t going to stop the mold and mildew from growing inside a foam cover But it will help your spa dealership pay their bills. If this were actually true a SwimSpa Cover inside would never get smelly and that just isn’t true.

• Remove the Panels: Again, this need to be prevented if possible, because the panels might end up being harmed throughout elimination or cleansing. But if you figure out that there is something slimy inside, you can typically unzip and get rid of the panel for a cleaning inside and out.

How frequently does your spa dealership anticipate you to do all this? If your swimspa is safeguarded from the majority of sun and rain, two times each year. If it’s visible it must be 3-4 times each year. Let that sink in a minute.
