Can I use a lift with these covers?
Yes, however, because of the heavy-duty aluminum hinge used in every Advanced Spa Cover, not all lifts are compatible. The key point is the thickness of the metal pipe or bar that runs across the center hinge that is common to most lifts available. If your lift has a pipe or bar that runs across the center hinge, that pipe cannot have a circumference larger then .75”. Use of a lift with a pipe thicker than .75” will void the warranty. Advanced Spa Covers offers and recommends several brands and styles that work best with our hinge style. Please visit our Lift section for more details.
My old cover is water logged and heavy. What do I do?
This is the key reason why our inventor invented the Advanced Spa Cover. A water-soaked foam core has lost practically all of its R-value wasting energy and your money. A water-soaked foam core is actually designed to rain the disgusting water that collects inside it down into the hot tub. This nasty water drips right into the same water that you soak in. We highly recommend immediate replacement for health, financial and environmental reasons. Henry Ford once said, “you can either buy a new one now, or you can not buy a new one and pay for it anyways”. The energy savings of a new cover will pay for itself.
How do I measure for a new cover to make sure it fits properly?
Thank you for asking. A proper fit will make sure that our patent protected gasketing fits tight all around. The most accurate method to measure the corner radius is to use a ruler and square as shown. The hot tub in this photo has a corner radius of about 4″.
