How to Dry a Waterlogged Spa Cover


Using a home spa can help you relax and relieve sore muscles. Proper cleaning and care are important parts of keeping your spa clean and running smoothly. A spa cover helps protect your spa from snow, rainwater, dirt, insects and other debris. It also helps hold heat inside to conserve your heater. However, your spa cover can become waterlogged in snow or heavy rain. Fortunately, you can remove the water from the spa cover, clean it and keep it functioning for years to come.

Things You'll Need

  • Towels
  • Disinfectant spray
  • Remove the spa cover on a hot, sunny day. Ask someone to help you remove it if necessary.

  • Place the spa cover on the ground, and stand it up like a tent. Unzip any zippers on the spa cover.

  • Squeeze out all the water with your hands. Wipe the surface of the spa cover with dry towels. Apply pressure when wiping to absorb more water.

  • Let the spa cover air dry under the sun for a few days.

  • Spray a bleach-based disinfectant on the surface and inside of your spa cover to kill any microorganisms as it dries.
