The SpaCap are the most revolutionary Spa Covers and will forever change your ideas about what Hot Tub Covers should be. The only cover of its kind, the SpaCap's patented design makes using your spa as easy as getting into bed.
Let's be honest, when you bought your hot tub you weren't even thinking about the cover. Like everybody else you were overwhelmed with all the bells and whistles of the spa itself. But every hot tub needs a cover so the spa dealer "threw one in" with the sale.
But now that you have owned your spa for a while you are starting to guess that maybe there should have been more time spent on the cover choice. What most hot tub owners don't know is that the cover is the reason that most people will eventually STOP USING THEIR HOT TUB.
Sound Crazy? Well thirty years in the industry has taught us a few things. Think about how much money you spent on your hot tub and how much enjoyment you got out of it when you first started using it. Now why would you ever want to stop? Well you wouldn't but it doesn't happen all at once. The new foam filled cover starts getting heavy the day you put it on your spa. SLOWLY. It has nothing to do with the Taper or thickness, or how much rain or snow falls on it. It would happen even if your spa was in your house.
The reason EVERY FOAM FILLED COVER GETS HEAVY is because of the steam coming off the water in your hot tub. It soaks into the foam and then condenses, the water molecules are bigger than steam and they get trapped in the foam. SLOWLY the cover gets heavier. Until one day when you're thinking about getting in to the hot tub and you decide not to BECAUSE IT'S TOO MUCH OF A STRUGGLE.
The warm water would still feel great it's just that darn cover is so much work to get off! That's how it begins. Now you can go get another cover like the last one, but isn't the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing over and over expecting the outcome to be different?
That's why the SpaCap hot tub cover was invented, literally! Because a single woman that needed to get into her spa for back therapy, couldn't lift her own spa cover without help.
She wasn't willing to just buy another cover that was going to end up the same way. She felt there had to be a better way!
So thirty years ago she came up with the answer, a cover that didn't use foam to insulate but instead used air chambers stacked on top of each other like a storm window or layers of clothing!
So why doesn't every spa dealer and manufacturer sell her cover?
The truth is, they make a LOT OF MONEY selling covers that will get heavy again.
The SpaCap is a lot more expensive to build but you're building a cover to last you don't cut corners on materials for the sake of being able to "low-ball" a cheaper version!
Just compare the materials used on a SpaCap hot tub cover to those on your traditional foam filled cover.
Traditional foam filled hot tub covers have vinyl on the outside. The cheapest material available that still LOOKS like it might be quality. Only ALL VINYL USED ON THE TYPICAL FOAM FILLED COVER IS RATED BY HOURS OUTDOORS.
SpaCap covers are covered with Sunbrella Marine fabric, the best outdoor fabric on the planet, RATED BY YEARS OUTDOORS!
SpaCap Hot Tub Covers don't use foam so there is nothing to suck up the steam. Plus, since the bottom of the SpaCap rests right on the water surface, it starts insulating the water instead of trying to insulate from several inches above the water. This also cuts down on evaporation/condensation that will always be going on under a foam cover so your spa chemistry stays more stable.
For the past thirty years we have sold SpaCap Hot Tub Covers all over the world from The Colorado Rockies, to the French Alps. When snow fall is making the news and traditional covers are cracking under the weight, A SpaCap Hot Tub Cover is going to be just fine.
The SpaCap Hot Tub Covers can also handle more wind than any other hot tub cover. After years selling covers in areas that get Hurricanes and tornados, not even ONE SpaCap Hot Tub Cover has blown away.

1. Make sure hot tub is filled to proper amount. The Proper amount is whatever the spa manufacturer suggests the spa water to be for proper operation of the spa. The SpaCap rests right on the water surface so make sure your spa has water in it.
2. Distinguish the top from the bottom and observe the location of the valves. The top is the side of the Spacap that shows when it is on the spa. The bottom is the side with the valves on it. When the SpaCap is on the spa, the bottom will rest on the water.
3. Place the SpaCap on spa, laying it on water surface. Top side up. You are meant to fold the cover back to expose the valves to fill the SpaCap.
Note: Valves are meant to be on underside when cover is on hot tub.
4. Inflation. Open the flap of the valve you intend to put air in. Prop open the inner check valve with a plastic funnel. The funnel will also divert the air into the cover. In order to put air into the SpaCap you need something that moves a volume of air. For example a shop vac that has an exhaust port you can hook the hose into or a leaf blower. An air compressor would work but it will take longer since it is designed to move air under pressure. The SpaCap is not designed to be under pressure.
Inflate the "Top" valve first until there is about eight inches of air. Inflate the bottom unmarked chamber to desired level. We recommend using a shop vac to inflate your SpaCap.
5. Close valves and center the cover on the spa so that it evenly covers the entire hot tub.
6. Place fasteners as needed. You may choose not to install the fasteners, but they do help the Spa Cap keep its shape, insulate better and keep the moisture running off. The fasteners should be equally spaced and should go below the acrylic of the spa. If your spa has a wood lip that protrudes further then the acrylic the fasteners should go about three inches below the wood lip. If as you are installing the fasteners the cover becomes difficult to fasten on the last side, you have too much air in the cover. There should still be a little give in the cover when fastened and the corners should not be lifting.
7. Congratulations on the purchase of your new SpaCap cover! Yes, it is different, but it works better than any other cover on the market.
