Fire resistant cover for hot tub

Dave AngeliniDave Angelini Solar Expert Posts: 4,662 ✭✭✭✭✭
I had this fire resistant tarp that I would use to cover my hot tub.  We used it under a truck to weld and it caught on fire. Not good.

I have been looking for something better for this 8' x 8' cover. The links below do not look much better.  Any help appreciated !

    just curious, why does it need to be fire resistant? Is it indoors, or near a wood-fired water heater?  --vtMaps

    Dave lives in a western wildfire prone area and has ember scorch marks on a wooden porch. FWIW, wildfire embers are a lot larger than the tiny things we see coming off a campfire. 


    Dave, I have an old welding blanket that looks a lot like the one in the first link. It does work well when welding. Never tried it in a wildfire situation.

    these?

    The last wild fire I just put the cover in the garage. The problem was we had rats and tarantulas in the water the next day.
    Thanks Don! Also, VT thanks for helping!
