Eco Spa Vancouver Island has the original lifetime warranty hard cover top! The superiority of hard cover tops over foam covers is obvious. Here are some reasons why hard covers are often considered advantageous:
Insulation: Hard covers typically offer better insulation properties compared to foam covers. They provide a solid barrier that helps retain heat and prevent energy loss, reducing the amount of electricity required to maintain the desired temperature in the spa.
Durability: Hard covers are generally more durable and long-lasting than foam covers. They are constructed using sturdy materials such as reinforced vinyl or thermal plastic, which can withstand harsh weather conditions, UV exposure, and accidental damage. Foam covers, on the other hand, are more susceptible to wear and tear over time.
Safety and Security: Hard covers often come with locking mechanisms that enhance safety and security. When the spa is not in use, you can secure the hard cover with a lock to prevent unauthorized access, particularly important if you have children or pets around. Foam covers usually lack this level of security.
Weight-bearing capacity: Hard covers are designed to support the weight of an adult, allowing them to function as an additional seating area when closed. This can be convenient if you have limited seating options around your spa. Foam covers, while still providing some support, may not be as sturdy or capable of accommodating the weight of a person.
Maintenance: Hard covers are generally easier to clean and maintain compared to foam covers. They can be wiped down or hosed off, and their solid surface makes it harder for dirt, debris, or water to penetrate. Foam covers tend to absorb water and can become heavy and cumbersome to handle during cleaning.
