Replacement spa cover from Costco...

the_drakeMarch 2, 2010

Has anybody purchased a spa cover from Costco.com? My original cover from Hot Spring Spas lasted 8 years, but they are $175 more than the one from costco.

that is a great question. I also have a hot springs spa and look forward to hearing how the costco cover works out. You do know that if you buy the one at Costco and it is not up to par you can return it. That is what is so great about Costco.

Not all spa covers are the same quality. THey may look and weigh about the same the it's what's inside that matters. If the Costco cover is heat sealed and has a 4 to 3" center to edge slope, steel reinforced center and edges and it fits right, great! I doubt it though.

We bought a spa just two years ago and were amazed that the inside black "liner" of the cover started "shredding". Even the tub is warranted for longer than that. Anyway, we unzipped the cover and slid the foam out and laid it in the sunshine to dry out, then removed all the black shredding plastic and reqrapped the foam with the same plastic that you wrap your house with when it is first being built. Slid the newly wrapped foam back in the cover, zipped it up and we're good to go again...we sealed every loose edge of the "wrap" with duct tape. It's just like brand new again....actually, better now. My question is this...does anyone know what made it do that in such a short time? We don't keep it super hot, just about 100 or 101.

Thanks,
