Your hot tub’s cover has a very important, but largely thankless, job. While many people don’t give their hot tub cover much thought, the fact is, it works hard to help keep your hot tub running at peak efficiency. When your hot tub is working well and is properly insulated and protected by its cover, that means that you can enjoy soaking in your hot tub more often. However, your hot tub’s cover wasn’t built to last forever. These three red flags could be telling you that it’s time to replace the cover to your hot tub.

How to Clean Your Hot Tub Cover

Your hot tub may be sending you not-so-subtle clues that it’s time to clean its cover.

It can also help protect your hot tub from debris and bacteria, allowing you to soak in it more and clean it less. However, if your hot tub cover starts to get filthy, you may not be aware of the issue until it progresses. If your hot tub has taken on a foul, moldy odor and cleaning it and changing the filter hasn’t done anything for it, a dirty hot tub cover may be to blame.
