How To Correctly Measure Your Hot Tub For A Replacement Cover
How To Measure Your Spa/ Hot Tub

To ensure your online hot tub cover shopping experience goes smoothly, it’s crucial to accurately measure your hot tub for a custom-fit cover.
Here are three essential tips to help you get the measurements right and ensure a proper fit for your hot tub cover:


It's best to start by measuring your hot tub directly rather than relying solely on the old cover's measurements, as the old cover might have distorted or shrunk over time. If the old cover still fits snugly, you can use its measurements for reference, but it's important to measure both the hot tub and the old cover twice. In case there's any variance between the hot tub and old cover measurements, prioritize the measurements taken from the hot tub itself.


When you're measuring the length and width, make sure to provide the dimensions in inches, and always add an extra half inch (.5) to each side, totaling an additional inch. It's better to err on the side of being slightly over than under. Having an extra half-inch in length won't significantly impact the fit, but falling short by half an inch in width or height can lead to an ill-fitting hot tub cover, especially during the summer season. We always use round-off measurements to the nearest inch while designing the cover.


To guarantee your new hot tub cover fits perfectly, it's essential to include the complete length and width of your hot tub in your measurements. Your custom hot tub cover will be tailored based on the data you provide, and by supplying all the necessary dimensions, buyfactory direct spa covers can ensure a precise fit.
