The best hot tub covers you can buy in 2020

10/29/2020

ONE home item that people across the nation have been splurging on since lockdown? Hot tubs.

If your home does have a snazzy new hot tub – or you're thinking of buying one – don't forget to get one of the best hot tub covers, too.

Hot tubs may be an investment piece, but now that we're spending more time at home (and staycationing there too), hot tubs are one expense that people find easy to justify.

However, in addition to the cost of the hot tub itself, you're looking at upwards of £40 a month extra on your energy bill.

This is where a hot tub cover comes in: keeping your hot tub covered when not in use can help keep bills down by trapping heat in the tub, making it more energy-efficient.

Of course, hot tub covers are also good for protecting the tub from any debris falling in, and preventing any small people or pets from slipping in.

You'll find a range of styles and price points, from wet-weather covers to marine-grade thermal insulators to cheap and cheerful, inflatable lids. Here are the best hot tub covers to buy online now.
