If you have owned your hot tub for a while you most likely have gone through a few traditional hot tub covers.
It's not you, it's them.
EVERY FOAM FILLED HOT TUB COVER Ever Made GETS HEAVY.
It's not due to rain water or snow so a tapered cover isn't going to make any difference. It's 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 hot tub 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 why SpaCap hot tub covers were invented, literally!
Compare the materials used on a SpaCap hot tub cover to those on a traditional foam filled hot tub cover.
Vinyl vs Sunbrella
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 hot tub covers are covered with Sunbrella Marine fabric, the best outdoor fabric on the planet, RATED BY YEARS OUTDOORS! We have seen Sunbrella still look like new after twelve years of constant exposure to the elements.
Foam vs Air Chambers
Traditional hot tub covers all use foam and claim the R-value of that foam as it's insulation value. But that rating is specific to the foam being used in a dry environment! It does not apply when the foam is used in a wet environment, say over a steam supply.
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.
