Should I cover my hot tub in winter?
A cover will keep your hot tub protected from winter weather, including fallen leaves, branches, and insects. Thermal covers also keep the water temperature up, saving you money in reheating. Make sure you keep snow and ice from collecting on the top of your cover by gently removing it. If a storm is on its way, consider making your cover extra secure by getting cover straps, locks and cover clips - the last thing you need is your brand new cover blowing away!

How long do hot tub covers last?
Hot tub covers should last between three to four years if cared for properly. Ensure you clean and take care of it. A hot tub gazebo or garden parasol will not only protect your spa, but your cover as well. To keep your cover safe while you're using your tub, consider a cover catch, shelf or cover lifter.

How do you clean hot tub covers?
Move over moss, mould and mildew, there is no room for that when enjoying your hot tub! Give your hot tub cover a thorough cleaning every three to four months to prevent it from going brittle. Use cover cleaning sprays and a soft sponge to clear any dirt to prevent any muck from sticking to the residue. If you're short on time, cover cleaning wipes are handy to have around. Rinse with water to ensure the cover is free from products and try to dry it thoroughly.
What type of hot tub cover is best?
For a long-lasting, durable hot tub cover, choose one that's made out of marine-grade material. This will ensure it's weather-resistant to UV rays, rain and wind, as well as waterlogging and mould. Make sure you check for sufficient thermal insulation in the cover, to reduce your energy bills. The more you invest upfront, the long your hot tub cover and spa itself will last.
Should I cover my hot tub every night?
Yes, covering your hot tub every night prevents heat loss while you sleep. It also stops any debris getting into your hot tub, keeping your water cleaner. If you keep your hot tub cover on every night, you'll save money in energy bills and water sanitisers
