Spa Covers is one of the true leaders in the industry. They manufacture
Spa Covers for top names such a Jacuzzi, Dimension One,
Sundance, Artesian, Marquis, Sequoia, Leisure
Bay and others. With this reputation, you can bet your next
spa cover will be one that will last for years!
When measuring for your new spa cover, it is best to
have two people help with the measuring, "one to hold and one
to read". Exact measurements are not crucial,
however, you DON'T want to make the cover too small. When in doubt
make it a little larger (about an 1") than the final measurement.
A cover a little bigger will never be noticed, whereas one too small
will not hold the heat in. It will allow leaves and dirt in and will
not look attractive. So, please confirm your measurements before sending
in your order.
Should I measure just the spa (acrylic), or should I include the wood rim?
is a personal preference, however most folks measure just the spa
acrylic, lip to lip. (See figure below).
In some cases you may want to measure to the wood rim, only because
it may look better to you and it doesn't create a "rim"
for leaves and other items to collect on. It does not help one way
or another with energy efficiency.
Another thing to consider is the cover skirt/flap, you will want this
to hang STRAIGHT DOWN. So, if the lip of the spa is at an angle, make
sure you measure the cover long enough to achieve this. You don't
want the skirt sticking out by measuring your cover too short. Also,
measure the skirt (3"
to cover the spa lip, or the spa cabinet rim. (See
a Radius (round corner)
Measuring a radius is not that difficult once you know
how (See figure below). The key is to NOT make it too big,
this is just the opposite of measuring your spa cover. If you measure
the radius too big, it WILL NOT cover the radius corner
(See figure below). However, if you measure
it too small, it will be just fine. It may hang over a little but
there will not be a noticeable difference. When in doubt,take the
The distance between the corner of the carpenter's square and the
place where it touches the spa (A) equals the radius of the curve
In this example the cover radius was measured too BIG. Therefore
it did not fit the spa. Remember, if in doubt, take the smaller
In this example the cover radius
was measured too SMALL. The orange represents how the cover
extended past the desired location. If a mistake in measuring
is made, measuring too small is better than measuring
too big. As you can see, it will still fit the spa.
