• REDUCING OUR FOOTPRINT: BEACHCOMBER HOT TUBS

    REDUCING OUR FOOTPRINT: BEACHCOMBER HOT TUBS

    When we started Beachcomber Hot Tubs 40 years ago, we were determined to not only deliver the best quality product to customers, but to ensure our products were built sustainably and ethically. As we celebrate Earth Day this year, we are proud to give our owners the guarantee that by investing in a Beachcomber Hot Tub, they not only purchased a high-quality, hand-crafted product, they bought one that makes minimal impact on the environment and maximum impact on local communities.

    At Beachcomber Hot Tubs, we believe in growing our business by taking care of our customers, and our planet. Here is a few of the ways we are driving positive change in our industry, to ensure our products are enjoyed by generations to come:

    100% Canadian Made

    Every Beachcomber Hot Tub is built by a skilled and dedicated workforce inside our Surrey, BC factory. We believe in creating jobs and opportunities for local engineers and tradespeople as well as offering opportunities to new immigrants to build success in their fresh beginnings. We ensure our factory and dealerships provide safe working conditions, fair labour practices, and adhere to environmental best practices.

    Energy Efficient

    In the mid-1970s, at the start of the home spa industry, the lack of quality products prompted Keith & Judy Scott to provide customers with something better. They began a four-decades journey of maximizing performance while minimizing usage costs. They achieved this through innovations including 100% cavity-filled insulation, created a sealant across the hot tub cover that locks in heat, circulation filtration flow that minimizes jet motors, heat recovery through hydronic radiant heating, and LED lighting and smart digitized controls panels.

    Push For Eco-Friendly Products

    As the business has grown, Beachcomber has looked at new ways to invest resources into sustainability, more recently launching a revolutionary line-up of water care products that use alternative sanitizers and natural solutions to eliminate the volume of hot tub chemicals required in cleaning and balancing water. This includes our ClearTech UVC filtration system that harnesses the sun’s natural UV rays to eliminate harmful bacteria and cut the need for sanitizers by up to 70%, and our Care Free Water Care system. We have also looked to minimize our impact on local forests in construction. Beachcomber’s Enviroskirt cabinet is made with a material that has the look and feel of natural wood, without cutting down trees. It’s also maintenance-free and durable against all natural elements, delivering superior, lasting performance, to real wood.

  • How Much Space Do You Need for Your Hot Tub?

    How Much Space Do You Need for Your Hot Tub?

    In choosing your hot tub and planning for your installation, the question of how much space you will need is a big one (pun unintended!) To help you narrow down your options, consider the following questions:

     

    1. Will my hot tub be located indoors or outside?
    2. How much space do I have available on my deck or patio?  Measure carefully and then re-measure to be sure.
    3. What are the measurements of door openings, fence gates or deck stairs for getting my hot tub to its destination?  Check the dimensions of your [planned or purchased] hot tub’s length, width, and depth.
    4. Will it pass through interior doors or exterior gates?  Check the weight of your hot tub both empty and filled with water. Will your deck, patio, or room floor support its considerable weight?

     

     

    If you’re comparatively shopping, you’ll notice that most hot tubs are square or rectangular (the 321 is the only Beachcomber we offer in a circular shape) and have a footprint between 6 and 8 feet. Keep in mind, you will need additional space of 1 to 2 feet around at least two sides of the hot tub to allow for maintenance.

    We also have a variety of capacity options, accommodating anywhere from 2 to 8 people, with the average size designed for 5 to 6 adults. So consider the number of people that will be making regular use of your tub. If you are planning on using it for yourself and your spouse, a smaller 2-4 person capacity will be perfect. If you have a family of five and are looking for something you can enjoy socially with your kids, look for a hot tub that fits more. And if you have small children, finding a model with a cool-down seat is important as it allows smaller bodies to safely perch higher above the water.

     

    An excellent option for those with limited space are our smaller footprint Limited Edition tubs!

  • Celebrating 40 Years Of Putting Families First!

    Celebrating 40 Years Of Putting Families First!

    On February 14th, 1978, Beachcomber Hot Tubs was founded and incorporated by Keith & Judy Scott. 40 years later today, Beachcomber is an internationally-renowned brand, selling award-winning hot tubs, accessories, and water care products worldwide.

    The beginning of Beachcomber Hot Tubs

    On our 40th anniversary, we are looking back to where it all began.

    Keith Scott was inspired by his childhood working in the family restaurant his mom and dad started outside of Vancouver, BC. There, he learned the value of quality and outstanding service in creating lasting relationships with customers. After working in the pool industry, Keith noticed a gap in quality in the then emerging hot tub and home spa marketplace. Keith, along with his wife Judy, was determined to build something better, and started Beachcomber Hot Tubs with a simple goal: to build the best quality hot tub in the world.

    The Evolution of a Quality Brand

    It started with the manufacturing of hot tub shells, delivered along with a package of pumps and plumbing parts, that allowed customers to put the pieces together themselves at home, but this process was still unsatisfactory. Next, Beachcomber began building portable models, following the standard construction model of housing the equipment inside the cavity. We have continued to evolve this model into our LEEP construction, building the leaders in energy efficient portables through continuous innovation.

    It was during this time in the early 1980s that Beachcomber’s world-famous Hybrid construction was born, revolutionizing the industry. The idea, which may have seemed a little crazy at the time, was to move the power equipment outside of the cavity and under the steps of the hot tub. This allowed all 4 walls of the interior to be 100% insulated, delivering never-before-seen energy efficiency in our industry. The importance? With heat retained at a much higher level, our hot tubs have continuously been among the least expensive to operate for owners, making them an unmatched long-term investment.

    Looking to The Future

    Today, Beachcomber continues to build hot tubs following the same principles of the past 40 years. Every model we produce is constructed by hand from within our Surrey, BC factory by a team of local craftspeople and engineers who are committed to maintaining the durability, comfort, quality, and value that only the name Beachcomber can represent. 40 years later, we are still a family business, in the business of putting families first. And thanks to families across Canada, the United States, and worldwide, putting their trust into choosing a Beachcomber for their home, we continue to do what we love.

  • Finding the Right Hot Tub When Space is Tight

    Finding the Right Hot Tub When Space is Tight

    If you don’t have one already, a hot tub is likely high on your wish list, but may also seem impossible if your backyard space is limited.

    Before you write off your dream backyard oasis, consider the versatility of a smaller footprint tub. Finding a hot tub that fits into a tighter space requires some foresight and planning but it certainly doesn’t mean that you’ll have to sacrifice on massage capacity or comfort. By measuring your space carefully and factoring in the tips found in the Pre-Delivery Guide and checklist, you can find the Beachcomber that’s perfect for your space. The new Limited Edition models are ideal for tight spaces – both the 540 and 710 are small footprint tubs, fully loaded with premium features and maximum jets. To help you choose your preferred model, consider also the location that you plan to place it in. The surface ground for installation can vary from wood decking to a cement pad or interlocking patio bricks. Paired with creative landscaping, thoughtful placement can make even a small outdoor nook feel like your private backyard oasis.

     

    While deciding on the location of your hot tub, remember that you’ll get more enjoyment from it when it’s about 10 feet from your back door, for quick and easy access. Also ask yourself the following questions:

    • Who will get the most use out of the hot tub? If you have small children, safety will undoubtedly be one of your top concerns, so factor in any railings, shrubs, trees or overhanging gutters as obstacles, when planning placement for space efficiency.
    • Will you be inviting friends out to enjoy it? Is seclusion your main goal? Or would you prefer a more central location?
    • Will you have to install any privacy features? A small space can lend itself well to a cozy hot tub installation, but you may have to think about shielding accessories such as patio umbrellas or strategic shrub placement.

     

    Remember to plan your delivery route as well, for a smooth and efficient installation process. And once you’ve checked everything off your planning checklist, put aside concerns about space and remember that beautiful summer nights and long winters provide the perfect setting for relaxation under the stars in a space efficient Limited Edition Beachcomber!

  • Why You Should Invest in a Hot Tub Over a Vacation

    Why You Should Invest in a Hot Tub Over a Vacation

    While counting down to an annual or semi-annual vacation can inject some excitement into the daily grind, it may not be the best choice for sustained fulfillment. Memories can last a lifetime, this part is true, but isn’t it better to create those memories on an ongoing basis, rather than wringing them from experiences that happen once a year on vacation? If your family has a tradition of a visiting a particular destination, it may be hard to break from that tradition. But check out some comparison points below, and consider the benefits of a hot tub investment instead, to create new traditions for 2018!

     

    Enjoyment Frequency 

    A Beachcomber can last 15 to 20 years or longer with proper maintenance and water care. Vacations, on the other hand, are unfortunately never quite long enough. There is also much less planning and fewer logistical factors with a one time hot tub purchase, when compared to those involved in planning a vacation.

     

    Wellness

    A hot tub provides daily or at least weekly opportunity for relaxation, meditation, connection and socialization with family, friends and neighbors. Depending on where vacation leads you (think calorie laden buffets in Vegas or boozy drinks and sunburns on an all-inclusive beach week), these getaways may have the opposite effect on your health.

     

    Connection and Reflection

    There is nothing quite like soothing warm water and the pressure of jets upon sore muscles to help you reflect on emotional and physical wellness. Meditating in your hot tub on a regular basis can also help you achieve mental clarity and psychological health.

    The distance and time away of a vacation can bring you clear-eyed perspective as well, which is useful in re-evaluating goals and determining what matters. But the problem is that resolutions discovered while away can often be lost in the frantic pace of the day-to-day back home.

     

    Of course, a major factor in crunching the numbers to compare the two purchases (hot tub vs vacation), is the extravagance and cost of the trips that you take. But regardless, the consistency of a hot tub does a better job than vacations in maintaining the health, relationships, and mental clarity that contribute to happiness, making it a better lifetime investment overall.

  • Why Energy Efficiency Is So Important For A Hot Tub

    Why Energy Efficiency Is So Important For A Hot Tub

    Looking To Keep Warm This Winter?

    A common claim across hot tub manufacturers is how much more energy efficient their hot tubs are compared to the competition. While all brands claim to be the leader in the market, how can they back this up?

    Let’s talk insulation 

    As you comparatively shop, start asking yourself: “Am I really looking at a fully foamed spa?”

    Back in the ’80s, spas were built with absolutely zero insulation, and some companies continue to cut corners here. On budget spas you’ll often see insulations practices like using trapped air or a small layer of foam on the back side of the interior shell.

    You wouldn’t build a home without insulated walls, right? Just like Beachcomber wouldn’t build a hot tub without 100% cavity-filled insulation.

    Brands that use these methods do it for one reason: it’s cheaper for them. When it comes to owning one however, even if you’ve saved on the sticker price, you’ll be losing big every month when you look at operating costs.

    Fully foaming the interior cavity of the spa continues to be the most important element in minimizing heat loss and maximizing efficiency; and it’s something that Beachcomber continues to be the industry leader in.

    With our Hybrid Technology, Beachcomber took things to the next level by taking the interior equipment and moving it outside the hot tub cavity and under the step. This has allowed us to insulate all four walls of the hot tub, blocking moisture and heat from escaping the shell on all sides. The insulation we use is a specially formulated foam product that is made right in our British Columbia factory and expands to fill the entire space within the hot tub. It’s something you’ll see across Beachcomber models, and across price points.

    Along with saving you money on energy costs, the insulation allows the interior equipment to run at a consistent proper temperature which ensures long equipment life, and maintains your desired water temperature.

    Nearly 40 years after we began revolutionizing the industry with hot tub insulation, Hybrid continues to carry on our proud tradition of technological excellence.

    Want to see how much operating your Beachcomber could be? We offer a Hot Tub Energy Calculator for prospective owners to estimate their energy usage based on their location and the model they choose.

    So why is now the best time to take home a Beachcomber?

    If you purchase a Beachcomber Hot Tub before December 3rd, you will not only have 6 months of no payments with absolutely zero added interest, but you’ll also get a $500 bonus credit that you can use towards accessories, water care products, and cover removal systems for your new hot tub!
