Can the Coronavirus disease spread through hot tubs or spas?

CDC Healthy Swimming Guidelines

"CDC is not aware of any scientific reports of the virus that causes COVID-19 spreading to people through the water in pools, hot tubs, or water playgrounds. Plus, proper operation of public pools, hot tubs, and water playgrounds (such as at an apartment complex or owned by a community) and disinfection of the water (with chlorine or bromine) should inactivate the virus."

Your hot tub can be a whole-body sanitizer

If your hot tub water is properly balanced and has a measurable sanitizer level of 3 to 5 ppm Chlorine or 4 to 6 ppm Bromine it should kill or inactivate the virus that cuases COVID19.

Think about that for a minute. You can come home and:

Why did my hot tub or spa stop working?

In general terms, most modern, portable hot tubs & spas are assembled from the same basic components and operate in a similar manner from one brand to the next.

This is partly because the hot tub industry has evolved to seek the most efficient design but also becaue portable hot tubs & spas are built for certification under various international safety standards such as U.L, C.S.A. and E.T.L.

Regardless of brand, make, or model most hot tub & spa problemss can be narrowed down a malfunction in half a dozen basic components common to all hot tubs. Details can vary between hot tub brands and models but basic trobuleshooting and problem solving is essentially the same for any modern hot tub or spa.

Where can I buy a new cover for my hot tub or spa?

You can order a hot tub cover online from a website but first you'll have to measure it and then you'll have to order it and then you'll have to be home for delivery and then you have to haul the new cover to the backyard and then...

What do you do if the color doesn't look right or the cover doesn't fit right???

Our Hassle-Free Hot Tub Covers include:

Our covers are locally sourced from a small business in San Marcos, CA. Your purchase contributes to the local community and supports local jobs.

Hassle-Free Removal of Your Old Cover!*

Even if your new on-line cover fits right and looks good... You still have to haul the heavy, waterlogged, moldy, stinky, dirty, falling-apart, old cover out of the backyard and somehow get rid of it.

Let us do the dirty work! We take all the hassle out of ordering a hot tub cover!

Hassle-Free Recycling of Your Old Cover

Whenever possible, we remove the polystyrene (Styrofoam) cores of your old hot tub cover and recycle them at EDCO in Lemon Grove.

The large, Styrofoam cores are put in a compactor and compressed into tiny blocks and then recycled! You don't have to worry about your old hot tub cover sitting in the landfill for a century or somehow polluting the environment with plastic micro-particles.

Hot tub cover recycling

We even remove the aluminum support rails (and sometimes D.I.Y. hinges) and recycle all the metal parts at Miller Metals in El Cajon.

The only part of your old cover that will end up in the landfill at Miramar is the outer vinyl skin which is usually paper-thin, falling apart and already decomposing into dust before it leaves your backyard!

*Must purchase new cover to qualify for free removal & recycling. Actual price may vary based on cover size, options and delivery distance.
