Ideal Safety Spa Covers Meets Or Exceeds ASTM F1346-91 Safety Standards.

Safety is especially important around spas and hot tubs and if you have small children or pets you must be even more careful. In order to help maintain a fun experience when using the spa all of our spa covers meets or exceeds all ASTM safety standards. (Your homeowner's insurance may require your spa cover to be stamped as ASTM certified.)

Highest Quality Marine Grade Vinyl - 32 Ounce - Custom Blend

Ideal™ Spa Covers uses a unique formula blend. Since there is NOT a vinyl made specifically for spa covers, Ideal™ Spa Covers work closely with the vinyl manufacturer and has made "tweaks" to the recipe over the years to insure that the vinyl will remain soft and flexible. The vinyl has also been treated with mold and mildew inhibitors and U.V. protection. Available in 16 colors.

Tapered Foam For Maximum Run Off Of Rainwater & Added Strength

Unlike other manufacturers that use FLAT foam, Ideal™ Spa Covers uses 4" to 2" Tapered (sloped) closed cell virgin foam core. For extra strength and added insulation, the foam is available in a variety of densities. The foam is reinforced with a steel "C" channel for extra support. Ideal™ Spa Covers NOW OFFERS 5" x 2" Tapered Foam, the ONLY Spa Cover With THREE (3) INCH TAPER! Ask About The Ultimate Waterfall Spa Cover Today!

Exclusive VPB 3000™ - Vapor Proof Barrier

Spa covers are attacked from above and below by MOISTURE! Rain and snow can penetrate the stitches from above and steam from below. Thanks to the VPB 3000 this is NOT a problem for Ideal™ Spa Covers. Unlike polyethylene plastic (sandwich baggie material) the VPB 3000 uses a special blend of plastics that are Ten Times More Resistant against moisture from penetrating and touching the foam core. The VPB 3000 is vacuumed sealed by machine guaranteeing that the foam is sealed away from moisture. Standard with Every Cover! No Extra Charge!

Best Warranty

Ideal™ Spa Covers come with a Three (3) Year Warranty. Beware of warranties that offer "too good to be true" terms. Ideal Spa Covers have been in business since 1989 and stands behind their covers.

Tear Free Padded Handles

FIVE (5) Layers of added strength where you need it the most insures trouble free cover removal. Made with matching colors that will not tear or fade.

Don't settle for ugly BLACK NYLON handles that will degrade quickly with U.V. exposure?

Gazebo Handles

A unique set of handles to aid in the removal of the cover in confined spaces (i.e. gazebos).

Lockable, Reinforced Sure-Loc™ Fasteners (ASTM Certified)

Prevents children or intruders from tampering with the spa. May be locked with a key. Helps to keep cover on when the wind blows. (High wind straps available when required). The lock is a 2-Part system, 1-part is connected to the spa cover by a tie down strap, the 2nd part connects to the spa/ deck with screws.

Double Ply Poly-Laminate Underside With Grommet Drain Holes

Industrial grade vinyl with polyester fabric reinforcement for durability is used for the bottom side of the cover. Treated with Bromine and mildew inhibitors. Drain grommets add a feature that aids in the release of moisture that gets trapped between the vinyl and the VPB 3000.

Frequently Asked Questions

My old spa cover faded and cracked?

• If properly maintained, the cover should not crack. See our Spa Cover Care for details
• Regular use of 303 Aerospace Protectant will reduce slow fade by 95%
• The life expectancy of the cover is 4 to 6 years without maintenance. Our customers have reported up to 10 years with a monthly cleaning of the cover and 303 Aerospace Protectant.
• The vinyl will remain flexible if cleaned with soap and water bi-monthly.
• Spa Covers, Etc. offers 303 Aerospace Protectant w/ cover purchase.

How do I measure the spa cover? The old cover never seemed to fit correctly.

• If you know the Make, Model and Year the spa was made (not the year it was purchased), we can use the specifications provided by the manufacturer to make your spa cover.
• Measure the Length and Width along with the Skirt Length. Also note if there are Cut Corners or Radius (rounded) Corners. Don't forget to mention things like pop-up speakers & stereos.
• If you live in Orange County or Southern L.A., for a small fee, Chris will come to you and make an in-home presentation and measure the spa for you.

When can I expect to get my spa cover?

• Local Delivery to Orange County is approximately ONE WEEK after your order has been placed.
• Local deliveries are usually performed on Fridays.
• For covers shipped outside 0.C., delivery time is approximately 7 to 10 working days.
NOTE: Covers are shipped via common carrier freight company. UPS and Fed Ex do not deliver covers.

What is the skirt and what is its purpose?

•Typically, above ground spas have an outer edge of fiberglass that is exposed to the sun. The cover incorporates a flap to cover the exposed area. Usually 3" to 4" in length. Other than covering the fiberglass, its purpose is for aesthetics. It does NOT help to retain heat or create a "seal".

If a 4-inch thick cover is good, is a 5-inch or 6-inch thick cover better?

• Not necessarily. It's not the thickness of the cover BUT the density of the foam (1.0#, 1.5#, or 2.0#)
• We offer Super Foam. It is 5 to 3 inches thick, but we only recommend it to support HEAVY LOADS.
• You May Consider SUPER FOAM If pets WALKING ON TOP of Cover will be an issue.
• The Ultimate Waterfall Spa Cover Is the only 5" thick cover that WE recommend!

Which Foam do I want, 1.0#, 1.5#, 2.0# Foam, or Super Foam?

• Ideal™ Spa Covers are the OEM manufacturer of many spas. (Sundance Spas, Cal Spas, Dimension One Spas, and more)
• 1.0# foam/ R-12 insulation value. Lightweight & easy to remove from the spa. Standard on most portable spas / hot tubs when you purchased your spa with the cover.
• 1.5# foam/ R-17 insulation value is used by Sundance Spas on all models.
• 2.0# foam/ R-19 insulation value. Used for in-ground spas. An upgrade for above ground spas. The added insulation will save electricity and is less likely to crack if it is stepped on.
• 1.5# SUPER FOAM/ R-19 insulation value. For spas exposed to heavy snow loads.
Super Foam is GREAT for small/ medium dogs that insist on taking sun baths on the cover!

What is the difference between a Spa Cover and a Hot Tub Cover?

Spa Covers and Hot Tub Covers are the SAME ITEM. Because many companies have used different words to describe the same product as a way to differentiate themselves from their competition there is now some confusion. There is not a standard name for a hot tub cover/ spa cover. We find many people asking what are the differences between the names. The answer is nothing. Here are some of the most common terms we hear used for a hot tub cover: spas cover, hot tub covers, hot tub lid, hot tub tops, Sundance spa covers, hot tub spa cover, Sunstar cover, Hot Springs spa covers, hot tub covers, walk on spa covers, spa cap, spa lids, cal spa covers.

Ideal™ Spa Covers is the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) for many brands of spas and hot tubs. Ideal™ Spa Covers made the original cover for Sundance Spas, Dimension One Spas, York Spas, Hot Springs Spas and many more!

We also have templates for most of the big name brand spas such as: Cal Spas, Caldera Spas, Coleman Spas, L.A. Spas, Thermo Spas, Artesian Spas, Arctic Spas, Viking Spas, Master Spa, Costco Spas, Life Spas, Marquis Spas, and many more!

Spas and Hot Tubs with speakers may require a template/ drawing. We also make covers for Free Formed Spas and REALLY, REALLY, REALLY BIG SPAS!
