During the summer, you might want to vent your cover to prevent overheating.
Why, you might ask, is this important?
Many hot tubs have preventative temperature sensors that monitor your hot tub’s performance. If the outside, ambient temperatures exceeds 95 degrees and your hot tub is set for 90 degrees, you might find that your hot tub cuts off or stops circulating…which can lead to cloudy water and serious frustration!
By keeping a couple bottle caps or foam tabs under the hot tub cover, you will allow any excess heat that gets trapped under the hot tub cover to vent out and maintain the temperature you desire. It’s not realistic to think you can keep a hot tub at 75 degrees during the summer…after all it is a hot tub. But keeping your hot tub at 90-95 degrees and venting your cover during heat waves can make your life a lot easier and your hot tub time much more enjoyable!
