Hot tub covers generally have a life span of about 5 years. Of course there are many factors that can expedite that time frame, such as where the tub is placed and how much UV radiation affects it, if any falling debris hits it, etc.
When your hot tub cover starts to become heavy, you know its time to replace it. The weight is due to the foam core becoming waterlogged over the years. Another sign its at the end of its life, is if the underside looks really bleached out.
One way to prolong the life of it, is to make sure you are leaving the cover off after shocking your tub for at least an hour, if not two! When adding any chemicals to your tub, its a good idea to leave the cover off for a bit, but is especially important during shocking and if you use chlorine products!
