The Benefits of Hot Tub Covers

Without a cover, your hot tub might look a little incomplete. Hot tub covers are for so much more than just aesthetic. They serve as a functional accessory for both indoor and outdoor hot tubs. You can also find a cover that matches your spa and surroundings perfectly, to create a consistent look throughout your installation. In this article, we’re going to focus on the functional benefits of using a hot tub cover on your spa.


Using a cover on your hot tub can help to trap the heat inside. When closed, the cover seals around the sides and prevents the heat from escaping. When the hot tub is open and heat gets out, the heating system has to work harder to regulate the temperature. By keeping a cover on the spa when it is not in use, you can keep your heating bill lower and take additional stress away from your hot tub.


Open water can pose a safety risk, especially when unattended. By using a hot tub cover, especially one with a locking function, you can improve the safety of your backyard or spa installation. Wildlife, pets or curious children may want to play with or enter the water, which can result in an unsafe situation. When you or your guests are finished with the hot tub, simply lower the cover and lock it in place to create a safer hot tub area.


Debris can enter the water in both indoor and outdoor installations. Whether it be rainwater, insects, leaves, dirt, or dust, these contaminants can lead to unclean water. Luckily, the use of a hot tub cover can prevent this debris from entering the water while it isn’t in use. To kick things up a notch, use a skimmer or vacuum to clean the water of debris before you enter the spa each time. They will likely be floating near the top or sitting at the bottom, making it easier to clean.


Enjoy a stylish and simple approach to protecting your hot tub with a cover. Our hot tub covers for sale are compatible with all Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs. We even have a range of cover lifters for sale, which can be installed directly into the spa and then attached to the cover, making it easier to lower and lift when using the hot tub.
