Spa Covers and Snow Loads

Replacing your hot tub cover because the snow crushed it?
What if there was a cover that could handle that much snow? Yes, even as much as you had.
Excellent news there is.
First lets take a minute and discuss why the one you have to change didn’t make it.
The foam in the cover broke under the weight of the snow.
Was it because the metal channel that goes through the center of the cover on both sides wasn’t sufficient reinforcement?
It was because the weight of the snow would have broken a 2×4 if it were attempting to bridge an eight-foot gap like that.
What triggered the cover to collapse was that it was aiming to make a bridge over the spa, from one side to the other. Usually not a problem up until the cover itself gets saturated, however in this case it was the added weight of snow that simply was excessive to manage.
So, if you get a cover that doesn’t try to bridge the space but supports itself by resting on the water, that would be a huge enhancement.
Still, you did get a load of snow. Would it be able to handle that much?
Brief answer, yes.
It seems that every few years, somewhere in the country is getting snow that will be described by their local news as “biblical percentages” which overwhelms the area, shuts down schools, roadways, airports and life in basic up until the storm passes and people can dig out.
Throughout those winter storm events, when the daily routine of the public ends up being concentrated on making it through, how the hot tub is doing simply isn’t that important. Not surprisingly so.
Once the storm passes and people start to examine the damages, it is not unusual for most or all the outdoor hot tub covers to be part of the tally.
A couple of years back, I was doing home programs in Colorado. We had a show in Colorado Springs then another in Denver with about ten days between.
During the break, I flew from Denver to be home with the family for a few days.
As I was leaving Denver a snow storm was rolling in and it ended up the aircraft I was on would be the last one allowed to take off for days.
When it was time to go back to Denver for the up coming reveal the return flight I was on took off unsure that Denver would be all set yet by the time we arrived.
It was, and we were the very first aircraft enabled in or out since I had left. The individuals that had remained in the airport in Denver when I left were still there when I returned tens days later on.
All Denver had been shut down for those tens days. Denver is used to snow.
This was one of those Epic storm events.
Outdoor patio roofs had collapsed. Business buildings had roofings collapse. Needless to say, almost every outside hot tub cover had to be changed.
With one exception. As insurance representatives rushed around to assist their customers identify exactly what needed to be changed, they discovered that every hot tub that did NOT have to have a new cover had the same brand of cover. Those covers were great. Not only did those Hot Tub Covers not require to be changed however also every hot tub that was covered by one was great to. The hot tub was till running; the water was still warm even when the homeowners could not get outdoors to shovel snow off of them. Even on the jacuzzis owned by people that ran out town during the storm.
The insurance representatives started advising that their customers replace their Hot Tub Covers with that brand name. All those covers that were able to stand up to that legendary snow load were Hot Tub Covers No other cover was recommended.
That says something.
The spa cover had the ability to deal with the storm.
When the wind blew in ahead of the storm, the SpaCap Hot Tub Covers stayed in place. Even covers that were too heavy for one individual to lift.
The hail will not damage a SpaCap due to the fact that it isn’t really stiff. The air inside the cover enables it to give. No matter how huge the hail gets, it won’t damage a SpaCap.
And the snow, several feet deep, didn’t harm a single one.
Prior to you simply buy another standard hot tub cover, we recommend you go to and get the only sort of cover that truly can manage the snow.
