Do I Have to Use a Cover if I Have a Roof Above My Wellis Hot Tub?

A hot tub cover is a very useful accessory when you buy a Wellis hot tub. A hot tub cover not only maintains heat, it also keeps out rain, dirt, debris, and any other falling particles that may land in the tub. With that said many people ask the question, do you still need a hot tub cover if the hot tub is enclosed or under a roof? Whether or not you need to use a hot tub cover for your hot tub when it’s under a roof depends on various factors such as the climate, the frequency of use, and personal preferences. Here are some reasons why keeping your hot tub covered is important even if it’s got a roof over the top of it:

  1. Heat Retention: Even if your hot tub is under a roof, using a cover can help retain heat when the tub is not in use. This can save energy and reduce heating costs.
  2. Debris Protection: A cover can prevent debris such as leaves, dirt, and insects from getting into the hot tub water, reducing the need for cleaning and maintenance. If there is also a roof over the hot tub it can reduce things getting into the hot tub but not eliminate it the way a hot tub cover can.
  1. Safety: A securely fastened, locking hot tub cover can prevent accidents, especially if you have children or pets around. It can also deter unauthorized use of the hot tub. Also, with the addition of a Wellis cover lifter, you can easily move it.
  2. Water Conservation: A cover can help reduce water evaporation, which is particularly beneficial in dry or arid climates. And if there is a roof over the hot tub, an even more ideal temperature can develop around the hot tub.
  3. Durability of Hot Tub Components: Constant exposure to the elements, even under a roof, can gradually deteriorate certain components of the hot tub. Using a cover can help protect these components and prolong their lifespan.

While having a roof over your hot tub provides some protection from the elements, using a cover can offer additional benefits such as energy efficiency, cleanliness, and safety. Therefore, it’s generally recommended to use a cover regardless of whether your hot tub is under a roof or not.

  1. Local pests, squirrels mice, ruined our hot tub for a third time in 7 years. Please make the basics impenetrable by local rodents.
    We are dishing our hot tub as have most of our neighbors, we are not replacing.
