    dirt keeps getting in hot tub ...

    So we just built a house and our yard is still just dirt from all the construction.... anytime the wind blows (we live in the country so there's nothing blocking it) it's lifts the lid a bit and I get dirt in the hot tub. .. is there any simple solution to keep dirt out?

    Weight down the lid with some bricks or something else heavy. Maybe you have boxes of books or china you haven't unpacked yet?

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.

    We have clips on our cover that holds it down. Is in an above-ground or in-ground spa?

    What kind of lid do you have? My lid never lifts even with lots of wind. I forgot to lock it once when a storm was coming and even the next day the lid was still closed.
