Swim Spas represent special challenges when it comes to covering them.
We can all concur that the swim spa has to be covered when not in use for all the same reasons a hot tub requires a cover. The challenge is that because of the length of the swim spa and the height of the sides, removing and replacing the cover can be a lot harder.
Getting a new swim spa is an amazing event in life. You’re looking forward to the workout you’ll get from using it. Maybe you’re a little relieved to have finally made a selection from the different designs you took a look at. At any rate, you probably weren’t believing much about the cover you would use.
Normally, the cover that comes home with your brand-new purchase will be a four area rigid foam filled cover that will split in the center and go off both ends.
No big deal.
Up until it begins to get heavy.
Which it constantly does.
Every rigid foam filled Swim Spa Cover ever made winds up the same way and it is not the fault of the user. It’s a design flaw. Built in obsolescence because as soon as it is put in use over the warm water in your swim spa it is inescapable.
It’s not from rain, so having a taper will not make any difference. In fact you could have it under a roof and the cover will still get heavy.
The reason is the steam from the water. The molecules of steam are extremely small as they increase from the water surface. They make their way into the little fractures and crevices in the foam.

Then as the steam cools it forms back into a liquid and becomes trapped in the cover.
It takes place slowly and on a Swim Spa Cover which is made from individual areas, at varying speeds. So eventually you’ll observe a couple of of the sections are actually getting heavy. The bar lifters on the ends of the swim spa aren’t much assistance since you still need to lift that heavy cover back up onto the spa which is a lot higher than a regular spa.
This is why SpaCap.com created a different design for their Swim Spa Covers
Instead of using a number of foam panels to construct Swim Spa Covers that will eventually wind up in some garbage dump, they created one that uses air chambers that don’t suck up wetness.
In fact SpaCap.com Swim Spa Covers are lightweight, insulate better, will not blow away in a wind storm or be damaged by snow or hail.
Covered with Sunbrella Marine fabric, these covers won’t fade, or break down at the seams either. So if you own a swim spa, and you mean to keep using it daily, SpaCap.com has the cover for it.
