The Truth About End2End SwimSpa Covers

End2End SwimSpa Covers -The Truth

We purchased our outdoor swimspa around June of 2019 and it came with the standard styrofoam inner, vinyl outside cover(s) for the tub.  The spa is a 14 x 8 tub so it came with two (each covering one half) of the standard foam/vinyl covers in order to cover the entire top.

These covers or tops are, at very best, heavy and cumbersome, and based on what I’ve read and who I’ve talked to, I don’t believe that these covers are very efficient in maintaining the spa’s temperature or chemical integrity.  Additionally, I have to mention how incredibly difficult these tops are to get off of the tub (not to mention how difficult they are to put back on as well).

Additionally, because of their sheer size, once removed there really isn’t anywhere to store them without being kind of an eyesore laying near the spa somewhere or actually laying against the side of the spa until your done using it.  To “upgrade”, we purchased mechanical metal “cover lifters” for our covers but this product wasn’t very effective in lifting the covers and was also undesirable due to how the covers are positioned at each end of the spa (it blocked our views to both the grilling and garden areas).  (quick side note:  the metal started to rust and looked extremely unsightly just weeks after installed as well).

In any case, looking for a solution to our problems we purchased a relatively new to the market swimspa “roll” cover.  This type of cover not only looked great, but appeared very easy to remove and replace back on the spa.  The one we chose (END2END) was disturbingly expensive but after our experience(s) with the clumsy foam-filled vinyl tops, we took the chance that this new roll top would solve all of our problems.

Of course, it did not.

The first thing we noticed (living in the sunny state of Florida) with this new roll top was that the beautiful grey color of the top quickly began to fade.  Again, although we live in Florida and get lots of sunshine, we weren’t expecting the color of the top to fade anywhere near this fast.  We hadn’t had the top much longer when we began to notice that when it rained, this cover retained water.

The water would just pool on top of the cover (it appeared to collect between the outer fading fabric and the heavy synthetic underside) and would sit there for days or until we lifted the cover at an angle to let it run off.  As time went on the water somehow actually made its way into that synthetic underside (still can’t figure this out as I can’t find any openings in the synthetic underbelly) making it so heavy it was for the most part unmovable.

Another issue with this cover was its susceptibility to mold and in just six months or so we observed several noticeable spots, and not long after that also noticed a small tear at one end.  It’s just my wife and I (no kids) so it’s not like we manhandled or abused the cover in any way.

For us, this END2END SwimSpa cover has simply been a disaster.  Immorally expensive, worse than unsightly, extremely difficult to use and care for, but worst of all, just simply ineffective.  Who knows, maybe we just got a defective product, maybe not.  But based on our experience with this one, we certainly could not justify recommending this item to anyone.

At SpaCap.com they have been in the spa cover business for nearly forty years. They have seen every spa cover design and heard how great this new fad was and the spa dealers always claim that this latest gadget, development or design change would make this “The Last Cover You’ll Need To Buy” but it’s just not true.

Unfortunately, as we talk to customers the experience shared above is just all to common. These roll up swimspa covers tend to only last a couple years at best. These swimspa covers started out being insanely expensive and the cost has almost doubled over the last year most likely due to being built in China.

Meanwhile, at SpaCap.com, every swimspa cover is custom built here in the USA. Every SpaCap is covered in “top of the line” Marine Grade Sunbrella (rated by YEARS outdoors), not canvas or vinyl which is rated by HOURS outdoors. Do our swimspa covers last forever? No. But they do tend to last ten to twelve years if properly used.

Don’t let the swimspa cover be the reason you’re not using your swimspa. If you’re tired of the run around and want to get back to using your swimspa without hurting yourself or dreading the effort of removing and replacing the cover, visit SpaCap.com and check it out for yourself.

What You Should Know Before Buying a New Swim Spa Cover

If you have to change your swim spa cover this year, there are couple of essential things you ought to think about. A swim spa cover is your spa’s very first line of defense against debris and extreme weather and is the crucial to saving money on energy costs as a well-insulated cover will prevent heat from leaving from the swim spa when it’s not in use.

Here’s what you ought to understand before buying a brand-new spa cover.

When to Replace a Swim Spa Cover

A spa cover usually needs to be replaced every three to 5 years if you reside in a northern area and every 3 to seven years, if you live in a warmer place.

Try to find any rips or tears in the vinyl, check the underside of the cover and try to find degeneration from mold accumulation and chemicals. Because all vinyls are rated by HOURS outdoors, this takes place. And the moldy and moldy smell originates from the fact that the foam develops practically best lab conditions for growing mold and mildew.

The service then to both of these issues would be to change your cover with one of the Custom Swim Spa Covers made by SpaCap.comAt SpaCap.com they use Sunbrella Marine fabric which is ranked by YEARS outdoors instead of vinyl, and air chambers instead of foam.

A replacement swim spa cover is required if your old one is waterlogged and heavy and a struggle to remove. This is a clear indication that the foam cores are saturated with water.

Once again, another reason not to buy another foam filled swim spa cover. No matter exactly what the spa dealership tells you, the fact is that every foam cover ever made is going to wind up similar to the one you require to change now.

The SpaCap.com swim spa covers with air chambers instead of foam do not have the mold growing issues and they don’t fill with water. They remain lightweight and easy to utilize for years to come.

The idea that a thicker foam cover is going to insulate much better is flawed thinking.

A quality foam filled swim spa cover will be from four to 6 inches thick. A spa dealer will inform you that if a cover is too thin, it will not be able to stand up versus harsh weather condition conditions and you’ll have to replace it more frequently.

What conserves you loan is a swim spa cover that insulates much better than foam. The Custom Swim Spa Covers from SpaCap.cominsulate better than foam without the issues of foam.

If you live in an area that gets a great deal of snow throughout the winter, a rigid foam cover, no matter how thick will be crushed by a snow load. Which is why numerous ski resorts all over the world have actually changed to covers made by SpaCap.com

Choosing a Color

Selecting the best color for your swim spa cover is an enjoyable however essential decision, as they can enhance and enhance your surroundings. Here is where all the color options readily available from Sunbrella, actually shine. Rather of settling for the 5 or six colors the regional spa dealership has to offer, you can select from more than ONE HUNDRED colors available from SpaCap.com.

Do not simply purchase another swim spa cover that is going to end up heavy or broken like the one you have now. Go to SpaCap.com and get a Swim Spa Cover that is going to be simple to use for many years to come.

Hydropool SwimSpa Covers

Headquartered in Mississauga, Canada, Hydropool Hot Tubs Inc. originated in 1970 as a commercial swimming pool company and in 1978 became one of the first hot tub retailers in North America. Our products are now sold through a 250+ retailer network in over 40 countries.

When you’re prepared to get a swimspa cover for your Hydropool SwimSpa, visit SpaCap.com While Hydropool have been working with designing and building swimspas, SpaCap.com has been building the ideal Lightweight SwimSpa Covers

Regardless of which Hydropool dealer you get your swim spa from they will certainly offer a conventional rigid foam filled swimspa cover The problem is that depending upon the overall size of your new Hydropool swimspa, that swimspa cover will consist of three or four individual panels. And just like every other foam filled up swimspa cover ever made, those panels will at some point begin to saturate with moisture from the heavy steam coming off the spa water, (beginning the day you load your spa) up until they are too heavy to lift. (Normally one section will be noticeably  heavier within 6 months).

Bar lifters won’t help since as soon as the swimspa cover becomes heavy you’ll still need to flip it over bar while trying not to hurt yourself. Then push it off the end of the spa. When the swimspa cover is heavy it will do one of two things. It will either rip itself apart (because the joint of the cover is not built to take care of the added weight) or worse it will tear bar lifter off the sides of your Hydropool SwimSpa potentially causing damage to the spa cabinet.

The SpaCap.com Lightweight SwimSpa Covers by comparison, do not utilize foam so there is absolutely nothing to soak up the moisture. They are built to remain lightweight as well as easy to use. Check out SpaCap.com and also order one of their Lightweight SwimSpa Covers for your swim spa today.

SwimSpa Covers Challenges

Since the invention of the swimspa 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 swimspa 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 swimspa 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 swimspa. 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 swimspa 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 swimspa. Yes, it costs more but hey it’s getting you back into using the swimspa 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 swimspa owners report that these roll up swimspa 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 swimspa 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 swimspa 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 swimspa. 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 SwimSpa 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 swimspa covers are in use all across the country and have survived every major storm over the last 30 years.

The SpaCap SwimSpa 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 swimspa cover, we would recommend the custom swimspa covers from SpaCap.com.

Before You Buy Another SwimSpa Cover!

If you need to replace your swimspa cover this year, there are few important things you should consider. A swimspa cover is your spa’s first line of defense against debris and harsh weather conditions and is the key to saving on energy costs as a well-insulated cover will prevent heat from escaping from the swimspa when it’s not in use.

Here’s what you should know before buying a new swimspa cover.

When to Replace a SwimSpa Cover

A typical foam filled swimspa cover usually needs to be replaced every two to three years.

Look for any rips or tears in the vinyl, check the underside of the cover and look for deterioration from mold build-up and chemicals. A replacement swimspa cover is needed if your old one is heavy and waterlogged and a struggle to remove. This is a clear sign that the foam cores are saturated with water.

CHOOSE SUNBRELLA INSTEAD OF VINYL

All vinyls are rated by HOURS outdoors. Sunbrella is rated by YEARS outdoors. Your new swimspa cover should be covered in Sunbrella that will be more resistant to UV damage, fading and discoloration from the sun than vinyl ever could be. By the way mildew inhibitors in the vinyl will never prevent the build-up of mold that causes those unpleasant odors. The spaces in the foam, and in between the layers of plastic are a near perfect breeding ground for mildew. No amount of cleaning will get rid of it.

IS COVER THICKNESS IS IMPORTANT?

A typical foam filled swimspa cover will be from four to six inches thick. Foam cover dealers like to push thicker covers saying they will stand up better to the elements. But the truth is the thickness has nothing to do with why the cover gets heavy or fails. It’s the steam from the spa. If the cover getting heavy was caused by the weather then a roof over the spa would stop it from getting heavy. Thicker foam would do a better job insulating if it were used in dry conditions. However as soon as it is put in use over a source of steam the insulation value will always go down quickly.

So what’s a better solution? Well it would be better to have the cover lay right on the water since that’s what we are trying to keep warm. Since air is the best insulator, it should use layers of air to insulate. It should have a natural dome shape so wind and weather will flow easily away. The layers of air are the key to keeping heat from escaping from your spa, therefore saving you money on energy costs.

If you live in an area that receives a lot of snow during the winter, a rigid foam cover will always fail under a heavy wet snow load. Whereas an air filled swimspa cover that rests right on the water will be able to withstand a much greater snow load, as well as providing greater insulation.

LOCKING STRAPS FOR SAFETY

Locking straps on a spa cover will not only keep it from blowing off during heavy winds, but they are a good safety feature to have to keep small children and pets from getting into the hot tub when you’re not around.

CHOOSING A COLOR

Choosing the right color for your spa cover is a fun but important decision, as they can enhance and complement your surroundings. Fortunately, Sunbrella is available in about 80 different colors. Instead of choosing between some shade of gray or brown you actually get exactly the color you want. And Sunbrella won’t fade for years. It will still be just as bright ten years after you first put it on your spa.

Endless Pool SwimSpa Covers

How to best place your SwimSpa

So you finally got a SwimSpa! Great. Now here are a few things to help you get the most out of it for years to come.

1) Don’t shove it in a corner! Place your swimspa so that you can walk around it on all sides. Leave enough room so that you can take the cover off and on easily. The more room you leave around the swimspa the better.

2) Don’t put the cover inside a portable garage! This might seem like a good idea, but having a garage barely big enough to fit over the swimspa makes using any cover even more difficult. Again, the key is to have enough room to get around all four sides comfortably so that getting your cover off and on is not a struggle.

3) Consider a deck all the way around about eighteen inches from the top of the swimspa. This makes it easier to get in and out of the swim spa and it also makes getting the swimspa cover off and on a lot more easy. A free standing swim spa can be five feet tall on a concrete pad. That makes it pretty young for a woman to get any cover off and on by herself. Having a deck, bench high, will make it much easier.

We suggest getting a swimspa cover that will be easy to use and last YEARS longer than any foam filled swimspa cover. Check out the swimspa covers at SpaCap.com. Not only do their covers last longer and stay lightweight, they are also available in over 60 colors so they can compliment any backyard design.

Roll top SwimSpa Covers: Are they really all that?

One customers experience.

We bought our outdoor swim spa around June of 2019 and it came with the standard styrofoam inner, vinyl outside swim spa covers for the spa.  The swim spa is a fourteen by eight feet so it came with two (each covering one half) of the standard foam/vinyl swim spa covers in order to cover the entire spa.

These swim spa covers are, at very best, heavy and cumbersome, and based on what I’ve read and who I’ve talked to, I don’t believe that these covers are very efficient in maintaining the spa’s temperature or chemical integrity.  Additionally, I have to mention how incredibly difficult these tops are to get off of the tub (not to mention how difficult they are to put back on as well). So in the long run, we ended up using our swim spa a lot less then we wanted just because we weren’t up to moving the cover off and back on.

Additionally, because of their sheer size, once removed there really isn’t anywhere to store the swim spa cover without being kind of an eyesore laying near the spa somewhere or actually laying against the side of the spa until your done using it.

After complaint to the spa dealer he talked us into an “upgrade”, the mechanical metal “cover lifters” for our swim spa covers but this product wasn’t very effective in lifting the covers and was also undesirable due to how the covers are positioned at each end of the spa (it blocked our views to both the grilling and garden areas).  (quick side note:  the metal started to rust and looked extremely unsightly just weeks after installed as well).

In any case, looking for a solution to our problems we purchased a relatively new to the market swim spa “roll” cover.  This type of cover not only looked great, but appeared very easy to remove and replace back on the spa.  The one we chose was disturbingly expensive but after our experience with the clumsy foam-filled vinyl tops, we took the chance that this new roll top would solve all of our problems.

The water would just pool on top of the cover (it appeared to collect between the outer fading fabric and the heavy synthetic underside) and would sit there for days or until we lifted the swim spa cover at an angle to let it run off.  As time went on the water somehow actually made its way into that synthetic underside making it so heavy it was for the most part unmovable.

Another issue with this swim spa cover was its susceptibility to mold and in just six months or so we observed several noticeable spots, and not long after that also noticed a small tear at one end.  It’s just my wife and I (no kids) so it’s not like we manhandled or abused the cover in any way.

Why SwimSpa Covers Get Heavy

All traditional foam filled SwimSpa Covers get heavy. Yet the exactly how and why could come as a surprise. It has nothing to do with rain so it doesn’t matter how steep the taper is, that cover will certainly still get heavy. If it was rain that was making SwimSpa Covers heavy then putting a roofing over the spa would stop the SwimSpa Covers from getting heavy.

Moisture getting trapped in the foam is what makes SwimSpa Covers too heavy to lift. Yet if it’s not the rain, just how does the water get in there? The answer is steam from the Hot swim spa water. When water turns steam it is a much smaller sized molecule compared to a drop of water.

Vapor can get into a much smaller sized space, like say the spaces in the foam. Once it cools back down and changes into water again, it’s trapped inside the foam. Once caught in the foam the water will not drain out so a drain hole won’t help. The only way the water can be removed from the foam would be to evaporate. In order to evaporate, the SwimSpa Covers would have need to be removed from the resource of steam (the swim spa) and put in a completely dry, well aerated area.

The trouble has nothing to do with how well the SwimSpa Covers is cared for or just how much plastic protector is rubbed on it. The issue is the foam. The sort of foam made use of in SwimSpa Covers is made to be made use of as insulation in DRY conditions. For example it works well in floorings, walls as well as ceilings (provided it is kept dry) and is terrific for refrigeration applications.

Nonetheless if the same foam is exposed to steam, the insulation it might have is swiftly reduced to something comparable to damp plywood.

So why is foam still being utilized in SwimSpa Covers? It’s cheap and also it’s the industry standard. But even if everybody is doing it does not make it the best solution.

A far better concept as for Lightweight SwimSpa Covers go would certainly be one that removes the foam, still insulates yet remains light weight as well as easy to use.

Thirty years ago, (yes actually, thirty years ago) that is how the SpaCap.com was created. A single woman with back problem, needed to have the ability to utilize her spa daily for treatment. She had to be able to get her SwimSpa Covers on and off by herself without injuring her back.

The cover she eventually developed was lightweight, easy to use and insulated as well as a foam filled SwimSpa Covers Although it has undergone many improvements throughout the years, the concept and design is still the same. SpaCap.com builds custom Lightweight SwimSpa Covers for all kinds of spas including Swim Spa Covers

Don’t just go buy another foam filled SwimSpa Covers even if that’s exactly what the next-door neighbors do. Check out SpaCap.com and get one of their Lightweight SwimSpa Covers that will not get heavy or break and will certainly make it easy for you to use your spa for years to come!
