You may have noticed that your current hot tub or swim spa cover is getting heavier by the day. Maybe it hasn’t gotten overly heavy, but there are numerous signs of wear. These things all mean it is time to get a replacement cover for your hot tub or swim spa! Where do you get a replacement cover? A quick google search will pull up many options of places to buy your next cover, but here are just a few places you could shop, and our opinion on which place is the best!
You could get a replacement cover for a hot tub or swim spa online.
This is completely obvious in today’s culture, but you can get a replacement cover for a hot tub or swim spa online. Online retailers will have plenty of options for you to choose from. They will also be on the cheaper side.
A word of caution before ordering online. Since the covers are cheaper to buy, they are also made more cheaply. This means you will be going through these types of covers quickly and replacing them more often.
It can also be tricky to ensure you purchase the correct size cover. So be sure to triple-check those measurements before ordering. It can also get expensive to have these covers shipped to you. These shipping costs can sometimes offset the savings of the cover itself. If you end up ordering something that doesn’t fit, exchanging it can also be quite a hassle. We advise thinking this decision through carefully and double-checking everything before purchasing.
You could get a replacement cover at a box store.
The second most intuitive place to get a hot tub or swim spa cover is a big box store. They will also have options for you to choose from. We would again caution you to do homework before purchasing from one of these places for the same reasons you should be cautious purchasing online. These products tend to be made with cheaper materials and will not last as long as higher quality products. You can also run into issues with sizing if working with someone who is not familiar with hot tub or swim spa products.
The best place to get a replacement cover is from your local hot tub and swim spa dealer.
