What is a cover lifter and should I buy one?

Using a cover lifter or cover caddy will help you to get the cover on and off your spa with ease. It also minimises the time your cover spends on the ground, keeping it away from dirt and prolonging the life of your spa’s hardcover.

Using a cover lifter reduces the stress and pressure on the foam inside your cover. This reduces cracks and helps prevent your cover from becoming waterlogged and heavy.
