Has your lid gone heavy or seen better days?
Think of your spa like a Thermos flask, with the lid retaining the heat on the top of your spa. The more effective this is then the better your spa will be at retaining the heat for longer keeping your operational costs lower so that your heater doesn't have to come on as often to heat it up to temperature. (Remember the outside ambient temperature will also have an effect on this.)
A heavy lid can put strain on your lifter causing it to bend, and can pull on the spa brackets attached to your spa cabinet causing the wood to break. A heavy lid can weigh anything up to appx 175kgs in comparison to a new one which weighs only appx 20kgs.
If your hot tub is located outdoors it is exposed to the elements 24/7 incl. wind, rain, sun, snow & frost as well as garden critters & birds and tree sap. Even if your spa is located indoors, in either case the underside of your spa cover is in contact with the hot water and chemicals within your spa. Over time, just like the tyres on your car, your lid will need changing due to general wear and tear, as the outer vinyl starts to lose its suppleness and its UV & water repellent properties, and the inner wrapping will start to deteriorate causing the cores to become exposed which will in turn gradually absorb water like a sponge.
Top Tip: Keep your chlorine levels to the lower 2-3ppm rather than the higher 3-5ppm and remove/lift your lid when you are shock dosing your hot tub on clean cycle. This allows the bacteria to oxidise off more easily and doesn't expose your lid to the higher levels of chlorine or non chlorine shock.
Please see our Lids Do's and Don'ts guide on the website http://www.hottubassist.co.uk/advice/lid-dos-and-donts to help maintain your lid and improve it's longevity.
