Hot tub Covers & Spa Covers: Steam STOPPER Pillows

If the time has come for replacing your hot tub cover, keep in mind your primary feature considerations for your needs. If your primary goal is to conserve energy and keep your heating bill low, a really important element is the steam stopper pillow.

The steam stopper pillow keeps steam from seeping out of the hot tub, and can be seen just between the gap that separates both sides of the cover. The gap is created by the cover’s “hinge” which is typically around one and a half inches wide. The hinge must be thick enough to last a long time, which also means the gap is substantial. If the hinge were 1/8″, for example, the spa cover would rip over time because of the wear and pull from opening and closing the cover.

Standard, basic covers fill this void only at the outer ends of the hinge and over the acrylic lip of the hot tub itself. The steam stopper pillow is small in size, basically the size of a playing card. When in the closed position, the spa cover’s halves should each rest against their respective “sides” of the steam stopper pillow, thus creating a perfect seal.

One downside to a steam stopper pillow is that it is not insulated. As you trace across the hinge there’s enough material to equal the surface of a basketball, which means there’s a significant amount of room for steam to still escape. You’ll notice this in the winter, as snow melts across the hinge first.

Most hot tub cover manufacturers can upgrade the steam stopper to what they call a “long” one. It is the same size and placement on the spa cover, but runs across the entire width of the tub cover in a single piece of foam wrapped in vinyl.
The typical hot tub cover lasts about five to ten years. Yes, replacing the spa cover is a part of the ownership of your spa. We hope you take the time to review options and upgrades when buying your next hot tub cover.

“Spending much more time in dynamics may have some surprising health benefits. Researchers comopsed a series of tests, where some individuals walked via wooded forest paths, and other people through the dense concrete jungle of a city. Individuals who spent much more time within the forest exhibited increased immune function.

Stress reduction is 1 factor. But scientists also chalk it up to phytoncides, the airborne chemical substances that plants emit to guard them from rotting and insects and which also seem to advantage humans.
