In Topic: Help With H2X Master Spa Cover

Yesterday, 04:24 PM

The vacuum sealing is to help prevent the cover from ballooning, but only works to a point. A little blown out of proportion, but... imagine taking a solid plastic pellet the size of a BB, and expanding it to the size of a marble, filling it with air. Take a bazillion of these "marbles" and compress them together into a sheet of foam. This is basically how the foam cores are made (REALLY basic description, there's a bit more to it). Wrap plastic around it, quickly vacuum out any air, and seal up the plastic. Ok, so there's a WHOLE lot of air still inside. In between the "marbles" that were compressed together, and inside the "marbles" themselves. Anything that might change the volume of that air, such as rising temperature or increasing elevation, will expand the air, increase it's volume, and make it look like the cover is inflated. Gorilla Duct tape? No clue. Never tried it. It's VERY difficult to get ANY tape to seal over any amount of time. Between the temperature and humidity, most adhesives break down rather quickly. The best thing, I've always been told, was PVC tape. Basically electrical tape, and they do make it 2" wide. I'd be curious to try Tyvek tape. It's some of the stickiest stuff, initially, I've come across.

In order to capture the heat off the pump there's a "wrap" around the motor that waters' pumped through. NOT from heat collected at the impeller.

What does "I taped the wires" mean? Brand of spa? Model?
