Ideal Spa Cover CareThe Sun is a Killer!
If you keep the spa cover clean it will last for many years. Have you owned a spa cover in the past only to have it wear out in just a few short years? Did you ever clean it? Did you put any type of protectant on it?

At least once a month the spa cover needs to be cleaned. Using a high pressure garden nozzle and a gentle liquid soap (Ivory. Palmolive, Dawn liquid soap) wet and wash the spa cover. Use a sponge to lift the dirt once the soap has been applied. Do NOT use any abrasives (SOS pad). Rinse and dry the spa cover to prevent hard water stains. This is best done early in the day before the cover has had a chance to warm up in the sun.

Every month we recommend using 303 Aerospace Protectant to prevent slow fade by 95% over the next 5 years. Your spa cover will love you and you will love how the old cover looks new. Simply spray on the 303 and wipe of excess. The 303 Aerospace Protectant has a SPF 40, its like sunscreen for your stuff!

Ideal Spa Covers Vs. the "other guys" | Spa Covers Etc.

The Ideal Spa Cover is #1All spa covers are NOT created equal!Ideal Spa Covers have over 20 points of reinforcement. Chris Graham, owner of Spa Covers Etc., in Orange County, Ca. would like to share some of those points with you.
Ideal Spa Covers are CUSTOM MADE to Order. Every spa cover order is made to the customer's specifications, choice of color, and choice of foam core density. Our spa covers are NOT generic sizes "that will work". At Ideal Spa Covers all spa covers are made by hand using industrial grade machines enabling us to make the strongest, longest lasting spa cover, in a wide variety of custom sizes and shapes. Ideal Spa Covers uses a proprietary blend Vinyl. Exclusive to Ideal!Ideal Spa Covers has been in business over 25 years.

Spa Covers Etc. - About Us (formerly Discount Pool Supply)

Spa Covers Etc.
(Formerly Discount Pool Supply) Established 1997 
In 1997, Chris Graham established Discount Pool Supply, a mobile Pool and Spa Supply "On Wheels". From 1987 to 1997 Chris worked as the store manager for Allred's Pool Supplies in Laguna Hills, Mission Pool and Spa Supplies in Mission Viejo and Sierra Pool and Spa in Lake Forest, Ca..  Chris realized that certain needs were not being met by the traditional swimming pool store. The main thing that was not offered as a service is HOME DELIVERY. As a "mobile" swimming pool store, Discount Pool Supply, is able to sell products such as Custom Vinyl Spa Covers, a product that is very big and bulky and may be difficult for a customer to transport to their home. And since you can't bring your pool or spa to us, we make house calls. This ensures that you get the correct replacement parts for your pool or spa and potential future problems are able to be fixed before they become a major problem.

The Ultimate Waterfall Spa Cover - The ONLY 5" x 2" Thick Spa Cover | Spa Covers Etc.

Ideal Spa Covers has patented an ALL NEW Spa Cover!The new design is the only spa cover to feature a 5 inch thick foam that tapers to 2 inches. In addition to the new foam, the spa cover features a new way to sew the vinyl. Ideal Spa Covers has eliminated approximately 50% of the stitches from the topside of the cover protecting areas that are prone to damage from moisture.

The 5" x 2" is the  ONLY spa cover with 3 FULL inches of taper (slope) which allows water to run-off faster than the competition!
The 5" x 2" is GREAT for areas with snow! The extra taper helps shed the snow (think of the houses back east with pitched (sloped) roofs.)
The new stitching design helps to prevent rain from penetrating through the top of the spa cover with approximately 50% less stitches.

The new stitching design makes it possible for the cover to be available in a TWO-TONE color scheme.

How Much Are Spa Covers? | Spa Covers Etc.

How Much Should I Pay For A Spa Cover? With so many spa cover companies to choose from, how do I decide? When purchasing a new spa cover you should ALWAYS have the option to make it custom! You may be able to call your local pool supply and find one in stock but it is probably one that another customer ordered and did not pick up. For example you may be looking for a 96" square cover with rounded corners in Blue. The pool supply has a 96" square cover but it doesn't have the radius corners. Yes, technically, it will cover over the spa. BUT it wont "FIT" like the original. And it probably will not be the color that you wanted. When you call Spa Covers Etc., YOU will have the option to make the cover custom! Spa Covers Etc. sells spa / hot tub covers by Ideal Spa Covers. The covers are made to order and custom made.

Lets compare spa covers up to 96"
Most portable spas such as Jacuzzi Hot Tubs, Sundance Spas, Cal-Spas, Hot Springs Spas use the size of 96" as…

How Do I Measure The Spa Cover?
The Old Cover Didn't Seem To Fit Correctly.
If you know the Make, Model, and Year the spa was made (not purchased), Spa Covers Etc. can use the spa manufacturer's dimensions and compare those to the dimensions that you get from measuring the spa. Spa Covers Etc. does not provide the dimensions for the customer unless we physically measure the spa. It is not very common, but t…
