The insulating cover used for a hot tub also goes by another name, that is spa cover. The sole purpose of using this cover is to keep the spa shielded from external factors that can ruin it. While this cover seems to be less important than other parts of a hot tub, such as jets and heaters, it actually happens to be a crucial component.
With high-quality products such as Master Spas filter cartridges, you can very well keep your spa water clean and clear, but all that effort will be useless if you fail to keep your spa covered while it is not in use. Without a cover, your spa water can get contaminated by dust particles and other impurities. As a result, you will have to run your filter for a longer time.
A spa cover can save you the trouble of doing so, and can also offer the following benefits:
- It provides the necessary insulation and decreases the water loss due to evaporation. As a result, you will be saving on power costs as well as water bills.
- Having a shield on your spa is necessary, especially when there are children around. A spa cover does this job.
- Last but not the least, a smartly chosen spa cover can make it even more convenient for you to use the spa. You would rather enjoy soaking yourself in the spa instead of battling with its cover.
When spa filter cartridges get damaged or when they are too old, a spa owner would ideally go for a superior-quality replacement such as Master Spas replacement cartridges. The same needs to be done in case of spa covers. Unfortunately, these covers too are bound to fail at some point and thus need to be replaced once in every 5 to 7 years. You will get to know when your cover has run its course. Taking on water from the spa, it will become so heavy that it will be hard for you to remove it. As for the replacement, you can check out the online stores and choose the one that is best-suited for your spa.
