For my own hot tub, I've just installed a shade sail to protect it from the elements permanently. I wish I had a bit more room for one of the official Lay-Z-Spa domes as they look completely awesome. However, as you can see, I don't really have the room to fit one in between 2 walls! The sail looks nice though, but I'm just praying the wind doesn't pull my house wall down when it catches. Hopefully, it's tightened up enough to stay straight and not flap around too much.
