Nothing destroys a cover faster than poor chemical maintenance of your spa, besides jumping on the cover. Chemical burns can show very quickly in a spa with poorly maintained water.

Covers are an important component of your spa. They not only keep out debris, but help keep the water insulated and keep heat in. This helps to save on your power bill.

If left uncared for, the vinyl and stitching on your cover can become brittle and begin to crack and break down. Here are a few easy steps from our Service Center to help prolong the life of your cover and keep it working efficiently.
