Why You'll Love a Saltwater Hot Tub

Why You’ll Love a Saltwater Hot Tub

Have you ever been in a swimming pool and noticed the soft feel of the water?

If so, it was most likely a salt water pool which has been a growing trend in the pool industry over the past decade.  Salt water provides softer-feeling water and because the salt cells in a salt water system only produce chlorine as needed, less maintenance is required when compared to traditional chlorinating systems.

Five-Point Cover Inspection Checklist

Five-Point Cover Inspection Checklist

Check out this Caldera Spas hot tub cover inspection checklist. It will help you quickly determine if your hot tub cover needs to be replaced. If any of the following apply to your cover, we highly recommend a genuine Caldera® Spas replacement cover.

Let’s look at the five-point cover inspection checklist.


These symptoms affect the safety, heat retention and beauty of your cover.

  • Dry
  • Brittle
  • Dirty
  • Torn
  • Cracked


You are risking the safety of your hot tub if your adjustable tie-down straps are not in good condition. Check the condition of your locking hardware.

  • Torn
  • Broken
  • Missing


Foam cores are critical to heat retention and safety. Cores can be replaced, but for covers over two years old, core replacement is not recommended.

  • Sagging indicates broken foam cores which can create gaps in the seal.
  • Puddles suggests broken or bowed cores that only get worse over time.
  • Heavy indicates cores have absorbed water.


Precious heat can escape if a hinge tear goes beyond the Heat Seal Shoe (approx. 2” from the outside edge).

  • Torn


The “shoes” seal the gap where the two halves of the cover come together, preventing heat loss at the hinge. (The shoe is the piece sandwiched
between the two sides.)

  • Torn
  • Damaged

To Conclude

If after you view the checklist, you decide you need to replace your cover, be sure to stop by one of our three locations. You can view our covers here>


Exciting News from Caldera Spas!

Caldera Spas is debuting a new FreshWater Salt System beginning with their 2019 hot tub line.

This new system employs unique, patent-pending technology in an industry-first, in-line and disposable design, accessible from the top of the spa.

Key advantages include:

  • Fully integrated into the spa so it functions better than any aftermarket salt system available.
  • Accessible cartridge allows you to easily change it yourself without having to drain the spa or call a service technician.
  • Low-cost titanium cartridge combines with salt to generate a sanitizer that keeps the water clean, clear and feeling softer with no harsh chlorine feel or odor.
  • Easy cartridge replacement: After four months of use, simply change the cartridge in seconds from the bar top. Cartridges are sold in 3-pack cartons giving you an affordable one-year supply of water care.
  • Water lasts a full year before it needs to be drained and refilled. This conserves water, saves money, and reduces time previously spent on water care.
