Cutting Edge research about the body and hot water


Why do we say “Ahhh…” when sinking deep into warm water? Our entire being feels a wonderful sensation–mind body and soul–from this complete relaxation.

Could it be that soaking in a hot tub is like a mini-vacation in our original womb-immersed state? This break from the harsh outside world is good for us psychologically and physically to relieve stress, improve sleep, and speed healing. It just doesn’t get better.

In 3 minutes, here’s what happens when your deck isn’t supported properly. Always work with a professional to be sure your deck is properly secured and supported before putting a hot tub on it. The average size hot tub weighs 4,000 lbs without people in it. That’s like parking a car on your deck.

Your Replacement Hot Tub Cover

Caldera-2013-CoverLifter-ProLift II

Here at Clearwater Spas we focus on quality. The same goes for our hot tub replacement covers. Our covers for the HotSpring® and Caldera® brands are made by their own factory, the same as their hot tubs. Here’s their promise:


Hot Spring Spas leads the industry in producing energy-efficient spas and covers. Our rigid, vinyl hot tub covers tightly lock in heat with 1.5 lb. and 2.0 lb. foam cores that increase the R-factor of the cover for additional energy efficiency.


Hot Spring’s heavy-duty marine grade vinyl covers feature a tapered custom-fit core that allows water runoff, while its polyester thread and poly-ply laminate create a vapor barrier to protect the cover from harsh weather, chemicals and intense sunlight. Nylon flaps give the zipper extra strength, preventing breakage or tears.


Hot Spring covers are outfitted with exclusive, sturdy brackets for strong support and easy installation of our exclusive cover lifters. Each cover is made with double-stitched vinyl for a durable hinge and extra strong padded handles for long lasting performance. There are 24 internal stress points reinforced in each spa cover, including aluminum reinforcement for maximum strength and minimum weight.


Reinforced, adjustable straps make it easy to safely secure the spa cover. Each Hot Spring cover is UL-classified in accordance with ASTM safety standards, and includes child safety locks for extra protection.

We can also order covers for other brands such as Nordic and Marquis and we can get you a custom cover for your swim spa. 

If your hot tub cover has seen better days or if it weighs a ton from build up condensation inside the vinyl, give us a call. Have the year and model of your hot tub ready, and you can even order by phone.
