You have your suit on, you’ve grabbed your towel and you have your favorite tunes queued up and you’re ready for a nice, relaxing soak in your hot tub. But first, you have to deal with that cover. You know it’s needed – it keeps the heat in and dirt and debris out. But boy is it heavy and awkward to move. When someone else is home you can ask for help and that makes it easier, but today you’re home alone.

There’s only one thing you can do.


You manage to fold back half of the cover.


You reach around and drag the cover off the rest of the way, letting it lay on the patio. It’s not good for the cover, but what can you do? You’re not Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, after all – that thing weighs a ton and it’s so hard to move.

But there IS a solution – a cover lifter!

These handy little gadgets attach to your hot tub (they can also attach to a deck, depending on the model and your hot tub installation) and make it incredibly easy to remove your cover, all by yourself. No super-strength required.

There are a few different types of cover lifters: Manual pivot, shelf-style and hydraulic-assisted. There are also a few main ways cover lifters are designed to install: Under, side, top and bottom mount.

To choose a cover lifter, you need to know how much space you have behind your spa, and on the side where the lifter will install. Once you’ve determined that, browse the selection in our online store or one of our showrooms for the cover lifter that will work best for you.

Then, the next time you want to enjoy a soothing hydromassage and you’re home alone – no worries! You can lift that cover right off. And if you want to pretend like you’re as strong as The Rock while you do it, we won’t tell.
