Many owners of hot tubs install a hot tub cover lift when they first install a new hot tub. Those that wait to install lifts often want to know what other benefits to expect before they invest in one of these lifts. If you would like to evaluate potential benefits of these lifters, refer to these below.
Some hot tub lid lifters are operated by electric motors and activated by a switch. Just flip the switch, and the lid is lifted entirely by the motor. There are also lifters operated by a hydraulic system. There are those designed for built-in hot tubs, as well as those that are designed for free standing hot tubs.
Not all hot tubs are the same size. Consequently their lids and the lifters that operate them will be of various sizes that will match the lid they operate. When buying a lifter, you should know the specific size of your lid, then choose the size that works best for your hot tub and its lid.
Hot tubs can be installed in a variety of locations such as inside a gazebo, near a swimming pool, or even on a patio. Your only limitations will be accessibility to plumbing and electrical wiring.
