Are you tired of replacing Spa Covers that just get too heavy to lift? Or Hot Tub Covers that saturate or break? The SpaCap's patented design makes using your Swim Spa, or Hot Tub as easy as getting into bed.
On a regular size hot tub it can be hard to manage, but on a Swim Spa it can be downright dangerous.
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 swim spa or 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.
What's worse is that on a swim spa, because of all the sections it typically happens to each section at different rates. You have to replace your cover or try to maneuver the heavy sections around so you can still use your spa. Eventually you can't use your spa BECAUSE IT'S TOO MUCH OF A STRUGGLE.
That's why SpaCap hot tub covers were invented, literally!
Compare the materials used on SpaCap Swim Spa Covers and Hot Tub Covers to those on a traditional foam filled hot tub covers.

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.
You will never get a rigid foam filled hot tub cover to last anywhere NEAR that long.
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 Swim Spa Covers and Hot Tub Covers
don't use foam so there is nothing to suck up the steam.
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.

One of our customers related how his previous traditional foam filled hot tub cover had nearly killed him. He was checking the chemicals in his spa. Rather than attempting removing the entire waterlogged spa cover, he decided to just lift one side enough to get at the water long enough to get a sample. He bent over and supporting the heavy cover with his left arm while attempting to fill a sampling bottle with water from the spa.
As he leaned over further, the weight of the heavy spa cover dislocated his left shoulder and allowed the cover to hit him on the back knocking him into the spa. He was now face down in the spa with his legs pinned to spa by the weight of the spa cover. His shoulder was dislocated and unlike the Mel Gibson character in Lethal Weapon, he was in agony because of a the pain. He tried to move but could not budge the weight of the waterlogged cover.
He began to choke as he swallowed spa water and tried to rise up but could barely get his head out of the water. With what could have been his last breath, he screamed for help. Fortunately he had left the door from the house to the deck open. His daughter and her boy friend heard the commotion and looked out to see his legs sticking out of the spa cover.
They were able to lift the cover off of his legs and pulled him up from the water. They took him to the emergency room where they put his shoulder back in place and treated him for shock.
This man had owned a hot tub for 12 years and had replaced 3 conventional rigid foam core spa covers. While the life on the foam covers had averaged from 2 to 4 years, regardless of manufactures claims, all the covers became waterlogged.
Another woman told us how she and her husband were in the hot tub with their heavy foam hot tub cover propped up against the wall. A gust of wind hit the spa cover and it suddenly fell hitting her husband on the head. The blow was hard enough to push them both under the water. Fortunately they were not trapped and they both recovered quickly, or so they thought.
A couple of days later the left side of her husbands face suddenly went DEAD. He had no feeling, sensation or movement. Naturally they both were quite frightened and thought he had suffered a stroke. They rushed immediately to the hospital where the doctor diagnosed him with Bells Palsy which can be caused by stress and or trauma like a heavy spa cover hitting him on the head. He later made a full recovery. He was extremely lucky.
Here is something you will never hear from a foam spa cover dealer. Every year people are injured by foam hot tub covers. Most of the injuries have come from a gust of wind blowing the heavy foam cover onto people as they use their spa. Sometimes people attempting to carefully maneuver a saturated foam cover off their spa, have lost their grip and had the hard foam cover slam down breaking the arch of their foot.
Something that will never happen with a SpaCap hot tub cover.
If you're tired of getting beat up by your hot tub cover it's time you get a SpaCap.
There are many different hot tub manufacturers that are building swim spas and there will be more as time goes by. However since we custom build all the covers we make you can rest assured that we can build a cover no matter the brand.

The natural dome shape repels rain snow and debris like no other cover ever could.
The dome shape also prohibits the SpaCap from ever flying away in a wind storm. These covers have survived Tornados and Hurricanes without loss or damage.
Because the bottom of the cover rests on the water surface, no snow load will ever crush your SpaCap.
Air Chamber design insulates using layers of air, stacked on top of each other.

The lack of foam also prohibits places for mold and mildew growth so no more musty smell when you open your spa.

Easy to clean and no fading means your SpaCap will continue to look and perform brand new.
Hot tub manufacturers are constantly adding new models and styles, and we have been building Hot Tub Covers for so many years that we have seen many makes and models come and go. But don't worry, we can still build you a cover even if the spa manufacturer has stopped making it.
