If you're looking for a quick and easy fix for your broken spa cover lifter, then consider getting one done today. Not only are cover lifters usually repaired, they can also be replaced quickly and cheaply.
When it comes to repairing spa cover lifters, the issue may be caused by improper use, water logged covers, or acts of God. Most repairs involve either the lift assist system or the mounting system.
Sometimes, the parts needed for a spa cover lifter can be hard to find. In some cases, you can find them in a good hardware store or home store.
Spa Cover Lifter Mounting System Repairs
If you have a spa cover lift that slides under the spa, then you should avoid these complications. If you have a mounting bracket that's connected to the spa cabinet, then you should check the connections regularly.
If the wood of the cabinet has started to rot, and there are spots on the floor where the bracket should be mounted, could you remount the unit on the opposite side of the spa?
You can also add a mounting strip to the bottom of the spa. This component is attached to the spa's hardware using glue and screw. It's also mounted to the wall using bracket instructions.
If the mounts are bent or broken, this will cause the tubes to out-of-angle and create stress on the attached components. Metal brackets can be returned to new shape with a vice and a torch.
Spa Cover Lifter Lift Assist Repairs
A gas shock is a type of lift that uses a gas or a prop. Although it looks like a standard spring, it has different diameters and different output capabilities.
There are also different end fitting types for spa cover lifters. For instance, they have different shock types for different models.
If you are having trouble finding the exact replacement shock for your spa cover lift, there is a good chance that it could be done in an auto parts store. Just make sure that the size and force of the shock are the same as the OEM part.
Other cover lifters may also have Lift Assist, which is a type of fulcrum device. When used with heavy Spa Cover Lifter Arm Repairs
The arms of a spa cover lifter are most likely to get damaged if they're placed over the spa or the hinges. Also, heavy winds can cause the covers to get damaged.
Spa Cover Lifter Arm Repairs
If the tubing or cover lifter arms of your spa cover are bent or have a damaged look, there are usually replacement parts available for them from a local dealer or manufacturer. If not, try fitting a similar diameter tubing to your spa cover.
Most Spa cover lift repairs are successful, if done correctly. However, they can be costly depending on the type of lift and the materials used.
If you're not happy with how your spa cover lifter performed, it might be time to look for other cover lifter models. There are several models that will fit your spa cover.
