In Topic: Question About Rh Covers And Others

03 February 2016 - 05:36 PM

There are, or were, some other manufacturers using a different but somewhat similar product. I have no idea though how well it worked, if at all. One I knew of had terrible wrinkling problems.


I always recommended the thickest heaviest density foam you can afford. I'm near San Francisco and easily notice a difference between a 4x2, 1# compared to a 6x4, 2# cover.


Personally, I think sunbrella is EXTREMELY over priced. Yes, it will last "forever", but the rest of the cover will fail long before then, requiring the entire cover to be replaced. There's no pint in having one aspect of the cover last 100 year if the rest of the cover is only going to last 8.

Get a piece of plexi glass (colored?) and just glue it on with silicone.

Former owner... sold out and retired almost 2 years ago.


The reflective shield was reformulated by the manufacturer and as such failed miserably for this type of application.


ABSOLUTELY NOT. But strength and insulating ability is effected. Click on the second question on RH cover FAQ here;



Weight (30oz.) is an indication of thickness. Heavier vinyl is thicker. In addition to weight, there's also UV resistance and pigment stability. Both of which as as important, or more, that the weight.


Skirt length is almost ALWAYS something YOU specify when ordering the cover.

In Topic: Ozone Bubbles Missing

Obviously no ozone is going into the tub, a test kit would be a waste.


The issue is NOT with the ozonator, as they don't pump ozone into the spa. The problem is either a clogged tube or a problem with the injector.

I'm using a bromine system (tablets in a dispenser) and all my chemical levels seem okay. I've been testing regularly. 





Yes, it could be a developed chemical sensitivity (easy test, change the water, add NO chemicals and use the tub the first evening and the next morning, BY YOURSELF [no one else in the tub] and see what happens).


Yes it could be drying of the skin (Grovers Disease...typically only in people over 50 years old)
