Posted by amandascott52 (My Page) on

I had bought a spa cover six months ago and it has heavy now. Also the foam has become wet. I took off the foam, dried under sun and put it back. Do you have any better suggestions? Thanks in advance.

I think, it is time to replace the cover. Nothing much can be done to maintain it. If you have decided to buy a new spa cover, then better go for MARINE grade vinyl cover. Also the cover should have closed cell virgin foam insulation. I had purchased a similar cover from and it works well for my spa. You can check out this website for specifications.

We have a couple cabin rental and they have hot tubs. I have tried the foam drying out before and it did not work. I have also tried a few different sources for hot tub covers and the best by far has been They sell an option to seal the foam against water and it works, lasted allot longer than the others. Hope that helps...
