Spa Covers

Hot tub covers are custom made and will normally be completed within approximately 3 1/2 weeks (not counting Saturday, Sunday or national holidays, plus shipping time).

Custom spa covers are shipped via freight curbside truck delivery. Please allow up to 10 business days (not counting Saturday, Sunday, or national holidays) in transit after completion for delivery.

Spa Cover shipping available within the contiguous USA only. Air shipping and freight forwarding not available.

Note: If you are taking delivery to a residential address, the trucking company will probably be contacting you a day or two in advance to make any necessary delivery arrangements. We strongly recommend that someone be at the delivery address to sign for the package and check for damage when it arrives. If you give the trucking company permission to leave the delivery without your inspection, you will assume all liability for any damage or loss. Spa covers cannot be shipped or forwarded outside the USA-48.

Hot Tubs

Belize Spas

Belize eSeries spas are custom built-to-order in your choice of colors and shipped to you factory direct. Allow approx. 2 -4 weeks for completion, prior to shipment from the west coast.

Since Belize spas are too large for package delivery, they are shipped via freight van.  Please allow an additional 7 - 15 business days transit time after shipment (not counting Saturday, Sunday, or national holidays) for delivery in the contiguous US 48.

LifeCast Spas

LifeCast spas are custom built-to-order in your choice of colors and shipped to you factory direct. Allow approx. 3-4 weeks for completion, prior to shipment from the east coast.

Since LifeCast spas are too large for package delivery, they are shipped via freight truck.  Please allow an additional 7 - 15 business days transit time after completion (not counting Saturday, Sunday, or national holidays), for delivery in the contiguous 48 US.

SuperTub Spas

These soft spas are in stock and normally ship out within 2-5 business days from the factory warehouse in Arkansas.

Since these spas are too large for package delivery, they are shipped via freight truck.  Please allow an additional 5 - 10 business days transit time after completion (not counting Saturday, Sunday, or national holidays) for delivery in the contiguous US.

Note: Normally the freight company will contact you by phone in advance of the delivery, to let you know the expected arrival window. You will need to be on hand for the delivery and to check for damage. You may need to arrange for help in unloading the spa and moving the unit to where it will be set up in your yard or home.  In many cases this can be done by one person, since these spas are lightweight and easy to move.

These items are normally shipped ground service for delivery in 2 to 6 business days transit time from date of shipment (not counting Saturday, Sunday, or national holidays).

Split Shipments

Please don't be concerned if your entire order is not delivered together.

Your merchandise may arrive in multiple cartons, and sometimes on different days. It all depends on a number of factors, so please read below before contacting us.

Sign in to your account for Internet order package tracking info.

Most common "where's my stuff?" examples:

  • You will normally receive the chemical kit before your spa arrives from the factory.
  • You will receive supplies prior to a custom-made spa cover, which takes time to fabricate.
  • Spa parts may be shipped from a different warehouse than supplies, and arrive separately.
  • Large, bulky items are often shipped factory-direct, separately from other items.
  • Parts of your order may be shipped by different carriers such as FedEx, UPS, postal, or freight.

Quality Promise

Best of The Best 

First and foremost, everything we sell is of the very best quality available. You will notice that we offer products from a variety of manufacturers, not just one or two lines. This is because most spa products suppliers have their strengths, and sometimes, like people, their weaknesses too. We pick only the best product lines of the best brands. We make them available to our customers only after they have passed our own stringent testing regimen.

Best quality chemicals - discount prices.

Our Brands

You will notice many products with The Spa Depot® brand, or one of our other brand names on them. All of our own spa products are guaranteed to meet or surpass the quality of other brand names. Since the middleman has been eliminated from our own branded items, you can normally expect to see a larger size package or a higher level of quality at a lower cost than other similar products you may find elsewhere.

Service after the Sale

If quality starts with products, it must continue with service. That has always been our policy. Your order is checked once, then checked again prior to shipment. And we don't forget about you once your order is filled, either!  We're always here to help with your hot tub questions or concerns.

We built our reputation, and our business, on customer service.

Earth Friendly Company

The Spa Depot primarily uses recyclable sealed air bag cushions and recycled cardboard padding in our shipping cartons. Air bags are not only superior for protecting supplies in transit, our customers have told us that they prefer them to the mess and disposal problems associated with foam packing peanuts.

We hope you can reuse the air bags... if not, just puncture. They deflate to almost nothing for easy disposal or recycling. This effort helps our environment in a small way, and also assures that your package will arrive in good condition.
