How to Order a Hot Tub Cover


Measure the spa/ hot tub (not the old cover). I do not recommend ordering using the Make, Model & Year.

Your measurements will provide the Hot Tub Cover manufacturer the exact size. Best of all, you will be able to verify that the order is correct when the hot tub cover arrives.

You will need:

  • Length & width (measured outer edge to outer edge of the spa in inches)
  • Corner dimensions – Radius (rounded) corners or Cut corners?
  • Skirt length – Protects the portion of the fiberglass/ acrylic from UV exposure.

Our spa covers, Jacuzzi and hot tub covers, are available in 16 vibrant colors. All colors have UV protection built into the vinyl to help prevent fading.

Foam Core

You just need to decide which foam core is best for your scenario.

Your new spa cover will keep dirt and debris out of the water. It will protect the chemicals from U.V. exposure. If locked,It will keep children out of the spa. BEST OF ALL, it will keep the spa hot and ready to use.

Spa owners that keep the spa heated and ready to go this is the MOST important decision when purchasing a new spa cover; WHICH FOAM CORE DO I NEED? Do I need the 4”x 2” or the 5”x 3” and what’s with the 6”x 4”?

The numbers reflect the thickness and the taper (slope/pitch). Most of the spa covers that we sell are 4”x 2” meaning that they are 4” (four inches) thick and they taper to 2” (two inches) this allows for rainwater to run off the cover. The key here is the 2” (two inch) taper (I can’t believe how often I see flat foam spa covers).

Super Foam 5”x 3” is available for EXTREME situations. For instance, to protect against heavy snow loads. In-ground spas that may be stepped on may want to consider Super Foam. Note ** they are thicker but they are HEAVIER.  And the 4”x 6” is almost double the foam weight as our 4”x 2”. The main thing all of these foam types have in common is the 2” (Two inches) of taper.

You will need to choose the foam density. The 1.0lbs (one pound) foam density (aka standard) is the lightest and is recommended for warm climates.

We recommend the 1.5lbs (one & half pound) foam core for its added insulation. The price increase pays for itself thanks to the reduced heating costs.

The 2.0lbs (two pound) foam is BEST for cold climates and areas that have snow. This cover is great for in-ground applications.
Super Foam 5”x 3” is BEST suited for extreme snow climates or for dogs that insist on lying on the spa cover.

By the way, did we mention that we offer the ONLY 5”x 2” spa cover? Our cover features a full 3.0” (three inches) of taper for the BEST water run-off. Recommended for areas with rain and snow. Check out the Ultimate Waterfall Spa Cover here
