How To Protect Your Hot Tub Cover
Your hot tub cover can look way past its best very quickly if it is not maintained and cleaned regularly!
Don't let this happen to your investment!
WHAT CAUSES A COVER TO DISINTEGRATE?
1. Too much chemical in the water
Chemical in the water vapour that comes into contact with the cover eventually causes the plastic wrapping around the inserts to become brittle and crack. Once that happens the foam inserts will quickly absorb moisture, become heavy and stop insulating properly. Poor water chemistry can also cause bleaching, puffiness within the vinyl and disintegration of the stitching.
If you use too much chemical this process can occur very quickly.
2. Incorrect, or non-existent, cleaning
The most common cause of the vinyl cover fading and cracking is the use of damaging products – abrasive products will strip the top, protective layer from the vinyl causing it to fade, crack and disintegrate. A proper vinyl cleaner will provide an extra layer of UV protection for your cover.
By caring for and regularly cleaning your hot tub cover and ensuring its environmental conditions are at optimum level you will prolong its life by many years – and get a return on your investment. If all else fails and your cover is beyond hope then you will need to replace it quickly. Check out our custom made hot tub covers here.
HOW TO USE LESS CHEMICAL AND PROTECT YOUR COVER INVESTMENT?
1. Use enzymes
Enzymes are natural compounds that target grease, oil and organic matter, breaking it down before it accumulates in your hot tub. The right enzymes can also kill many bacteria. Consequently enzymes act both as a natural sanitiser in your hot tub and as a water cleaner and clarifier.
So, enzymes reduce your need for chlorine or bromine down to a very miminal level and they also reduce your need to shock the water. Thus dramatically reducing the need for the harsh chemicals that will damage your cover.
eco3spa is a chlorine and bromine free natural hot tub water treatment that relies on the natural disinfecting qualities of natural enzymes combined with Active Oxygen to keep your hot tub water sparkling clean.
eco3spa is kind to you, kind to the environment and kind to your cover!
