My hot tub cover is getting heavy and I'm noticing mold or mildew between the cover and the foam. I think it might actually be rain getting in from above rather than vapors leaking up from below, but regardless, the cover is at least 5 years old, the stitching is about to go and I think it's time for a new one.
Any recommendations on a new one? I'm looking at Solis. Every spa cover company I looked at have some complaints over at the Better Business Bureau but if they're making a few hundred covers a week then a few complaints per year is not unexpected.
I'm also looking at the electricity savings vs increased R values and if my math is right it looks like I'll save about $20 in electricity over a 5-year period for every increase in R value. So if I'm comparing an R-20 to an R-25 then I would save about $100 of electricity with the R-25 over a 5 year period. That makes it economical to get the highest R value possible. Agree or disagree?
