    Cover lift for fiberglass spa?

    I have an older fiberglass tub and was wondering if the cover lifts would work with fiberglass? I know that you have to drill holes for the brackets and was concerned about whether you can drill holes into the side of the fiberglass and if it would hold the brackets. Any help or recommendations are appreciated.
    Patiently waiting for an in-ground oasis.

    I wouldn't. Is it on a deck? I have a odd shaped fiberglass hot tub on a wood deck and want to put a cover lift on it. I was looking at this one: ... 17C49.aspx

    Just haven't gotten around to buying it yet.

    I had these on our old hot tub. Not a lift, but work almost as good! ... 18C49.aspx

    I made mine from 1" PVC.

    You can always do what most stores do for floor models: Instead of mounting the brackets to the spa, mount them to a 2 x 4 on the ground just behind the spa. You'll have to devise a way to hold it vertically depending on your set up, but again nothing a little extra lumber can't fix.
