All measurements must be submitted in inches. Never round up or
down to the nearest foot. Rounding up to the next inch is always
better unless you are putting it inside something. You can measure
the old cover or the spa. If your old cover was too small or too big
now is the time to fix that irritation. Remember its easy to do, we
have instructed 6 year old kids to measure, but I have also received
wrong information from "know it all" contractors that were not paying
attention. You can always call, we will be more than happy to walk
you through it.
Are the skirts slit or connected/continuous? Where are the tie
downs located? How is the cover slit? These questions answered on the
Covers in gazebos:
Covers in gazebos should be measured big enough to cover spa and
small enough to fit inside gazebos, and don't forget to tell us how
far it is from the top lip of the spa to the lowest point of the
gazebo, some brands of spas are built tall with short gazebos and the
covers don't have enough room to clear the roof when opening. Please
call for more specific instructions if the cover comes with in two
inches of the roof when folding open.
Above ground/portable spas:
Above ground spas should be measured from the very outside edge of
the acrylic/fiberglass. An inch or two bigger is always better unless
you have to fit it into something.
If you have trouble distinguishing between an 8" radius and a 7"
radius, the 7" radius will make the cover bigger and the way to go.
And the same for cut corners. If you have a 15 1/2' cut corner you
should order a 15" cut corner.
This is shaped just like a stop sign, all eight sides are equal.
Radius corner and round covers:
The difficulty with radius corner and round covers is the flap/skirts
are forced to point down, they do not lay out flat like they do with
squares and octagons. If your spa's 'top lip' is 2" tall you should
order 2" flap/skirts. Anything longer than your lip height will hold
the cover up. In ground brick or concrete spas should not get a
flap/skirt so you should order no flaps in that case.
