How To Make A Template

How to make a template

Materials you will need: Materials needed: 5-6 mil 10ft x 100 ft clear plastic, electrical tape, a sharpie marker, a pair of scissors. NOTE: It must be clear plastic, and it must be at least 5 mil in thickness to prevent stretching. The thicker the better

Stretch plastic over spa and pull tight, so there are no wrinkles or bubbles and secure to the sides of the spa shell/cabinet, housing.

With a Sharpie or similar type of permanent marker:
Trace outside (O.D.) of shell on all sides.
Trace inside (I.D.) of shell on all sides. If the spa is built in, indicate this as waterline.
Trace an outline of controls and anything on top of spa lip that might hinder a good seal.
Keeping in mind that the seal must rest on a flat surface to seal correctly, mark where you would like the cover to rest with a dotted line. If you are not sure, skip this step and we will determine it for you.
With a dotted line, mark where you would like the hinge. If no markings, then we will determine the best location.

This is the finished template that has been marked accordingly. Notice how we have captured the controls, cut outs, cup holders/speakers. The template has been marked to show water line (ID) and the outside edge of the spa shell (OD).
