Spa and / or Hot Tub FAQs

'Tis the season for Spas and Hot Tubs! 

Lately, I have found myself in discussion about using liquid pool covers in spas more frequently than usual. As such, I would l like to take the opportunity to address a few questions, and leave you with some great advice (from industry experts, not myself!)

First of all, YES you can use a liquid pool cover like Heatsavr in a spa or hot tub, though if you have any ability to use a specially designed hard top cover, that would be much more effective. 

If your spa is open for long periods of time, in a community or public area, for example, than you stand to save a great deal of energy, water and therefore money, by adding a liquid cover to your water. It will allow your spa to remain open, but protected.

In recent years, spa and hot tub showrooms have been using Heatsavr to reduce their humidity levels indoors, and save on their heating costs as well. One such retailer even wrote us a letter to share their experience: Urban Life

We have also been asked recently about using a liquid solar cover at the same time as a hard top cover. Many spas actually lay a cover protector over their water, which reduces the humidity and condensation that forms on the hard top. This should extend the life of your hard top cover. Though we have not completed any formal testing on this functionality, in theory, Heatsavr will act similarly to reduce the amount of condensation that will form on your hard top cover. It will also have the added benefit of offering some protection against the elements when you open up your hot tub for a dip, and it is also just that extra bit easier, as you won't have to remove 2 covers.

Once more, I would like to assert the fact that using a specially designed hard top cover for your hot tub or spa is ideal. However, if for any reason this is not feasible, please consider using Heatsavr, the liquid pool cover, to help you reduce your heating costs and conserve water. 

In other news, a good industry friend of mine, Matt Giovanisci from Swim University, has recently created a fabulous infographic with an impressive array of Hot Tub Care techniques. I strongly urge you to enjoy the following:
