Replacing a hot tub cover
I have a Marquis spa/hot tub that has a pretty heavy cover that I'm sure needs replacing. Not sure how old it is, as it came with the house when we bought it.
After calling a few local businesses, and getting quotes in the $500+ range, I found a few online options. However, I was wondering what benefits, if any, of some of the upgrades they offer.
There are two in particular...one is for a "double thick" barrier, or another layer of vinyl wrapping. The second would be to upgrade the 1.0# core to a 1.5 or 2.0#. Does anyone know whether these upgrades add life to the cover, and are worth the extra $50 or so?
