What sizes are available? top
Every Smartop is custom-built and can accommodate the smallest square or rectangular hot tub to the largest swim spa. Smartop comes with lifter options that either lock the cover upright to act as a wind and privacy screen or let the cover drop into a low-profile position that allows an uninterrupted view during your hot tub experience.
How long will Smartop last and what kind of maintenance is required? top
The rigid polymer deck surface and the DecoShield overlay are UV resistant and withstand the harshest weather conditions with no maintenance or treatment required. The impermeable polymer and exclusive patent-pending interlocking panel design prevents moisture absorption and retention allowing Smartop to maintain its heat retention effectiveness and eventual disintegration of the insulating foam. The materials used to construct Smartop are superior to vinyl covers which require replacement in as little as three (3) years. Smartop is designed to outlast the life of the spa.
Will Smartop become heavier and more difficult to use over time the way traditional vinyl covers do? top
Smartop comes with an integrated hydraulic cover lifter on both the front half and the back half of the cover which allows for easy, effortless opening. Unlike traditional vinyl covers that absorb water over time, Smartop’s zero-water absorption design allows it to maintain a consistent weight throughout the life of the cover.
What is the R-value of Smartop? top
R-value is often confused with how well the cover traps heat in the hot tub. Smartop has performed better or equal to traditional vinyl covers in its ability to insulate. As foam absorbs water, heat is able to escape through the water-soaked foam. One of Smartop’s superior features over vinyl covers is its ability to maintain optimal heat retention throughout its life cycle due to its zero-water retention design. Every Smartop also includes a Super Soft Compression Foam on the underside of the cover which provides an additional method of heat-retention. The optional SmartShield 800 can also be applied to the bottom side of the Smartop to increase the already energy conscious cover by more than 20%.
Is Smartop difficult to install? top
If you can use a tape measure, crescent wrench and screw gun (drill or Phillip’s head screwdriver will work as well), you can install Smartop. We’ve created a video that shows each step of the installation process. We also provide VERY detailed instructions with every Smartop that is shipped.
How much clearance is required? top
The Smartop Upright requires only six inches of clearance when in the upright position. A minimum of seven inches is required on each side to allow for the side handles. The Smartop Vanish requires a minimum of twenty-five inches of clearance when in the open position and seven inches on each side.
Will Smartop grow mildew/mold and develop an odor? top
Due to Smartop’s exclusive patented design and use of proven water-resistant foam from Owens-Corning, Smartop will not develop mildew or mold which is the source of the foul odor that develops over time with traditional vinyl covers.
What kind of weight load can Smartop support? top
Smartop’s structural integrity is derived from its exclusive patent-pending ribbed panel design and interior aluminum support channels. Smartop has been tested to support up to 1,000 lbs – Smartop easily supports snow and ice and protects against accidental breakage caused by children, animals, tree limbs and other outside factors.
Can Smartop be repaired if damaged or is a replacement cover required? top
In the unlikely event any part of Smartop has a problem due to accident or failure, each component is replaceable making Smartop repairable and the last cover you’ll ever need to buy.
Does Smartop come with a warranty? top
Smartop comes with a Performance Assurance Guarantee (PAG) that goes above and beyond standard warranties. We believe the cover should perform as expected and we will work with you and/or the dealer from whom the Smartop was purchased to ensure the product offers many years of trouble-free ownership. The PAG is effective for a period of three years from the date of purchase.
