  • How Many Seats Should You Choose in Your Hot Tub?

    How Many Seats Should You Choose in Your Hot Tub?

    With the variety of hot tub models and jet configurations available, choosing the best one for your needs can seem overwhelming. Once you’ve decided to make the excellent lifetime investment of hot tub ownership, you need to outline your main needs for it. As you browse available models, ask yourself whether the main purpose of your soaking will be for stress relief and relaxation? For hydrotherapy? Or for social gatherings and entertainment?

    Pinpointing the primary purposes of your purchase will help you answer the next question: how many seats do I need?

    Keep in mind that the number of seats will also affect the size of the hot tub, so you’ll need to keep in mind how much space you’re working with before you begin comparing options. And try to rank the importance of various features, to be realistic with your expectations and to stay in line with your budget.

     

    Here are a few things to think about when it comes to hot tub seating:

     

    Who will be using it?

    Think not only about the number of people who will be regularly using your hot tub, but also evaluate the layout and imagine how it will work for your planned gatherings. How large is the foot well? How close together are the seats? Is one of the seats a lounger that might be great for hydrotherapy but likely awkward for larger groups?

    Maybe using your hot tub for social gatherings will not be your focus. If you don’t entertain often or have a large family, you can save some space. If you’re picturing your hot tub as a place for reconnecting with your spouse, then a 4-person tub might be all you need.

     

    What will it be primarily for?

    The different purposes aren’t mutually exclusive of course, but if you’re seeking relaxation and hydrotherapy over socializing, then it might be good to maximize your investment with a tub that is more tailored to these benefits — even if this means a slightly smaller footprint. Look at your budget and consider what is the most important to you as you comparatively shop.

     

    Where will it be placed? 

    Consider how much space you have, and how you plan to design around the hot tub that you bring home. If you are looking to place it under a gazebo and want to have a hot tub that is socially-focused, make sure you leave space for people to get in and out comfortably in larger groups and for food and beverages along the sides.

    When choosing the Beachcomber model that’s right for you, take these factors into account and decide on the seat number and configuration that best suits your needs.

  • DO I HAVE ENOUGH SPACE FOR A HOT TUB?

    DO I HAVE ENOUGH SPACE FOR A HOT TUB?

    With space becoming tighter in many urban homes, one of the first concerns many prospective buyers face is whether they really have the space for a hot tub. As you comparatively shop, you’ll start to find that most outdoor hot tubs are square or rectangular (the 320 is the only model we offer in a circular shape) and have a footprint between 6 and 8 feet.

    Hot Tub Space Requirements:

    Before you enter into a showroom or start looking at models online, measure out the space where you intend to place your hot tub. Keep in mind, you will need an added space of 1 to 2 feet around at least two-sides of the hot tub to allow for maintenance. You will also need to ensure you have enough space for people to enter and exit the hot tub and space for your hot tub cover when not in use.

    Placement:

    Then it comes down to placement. Do you have a spot at the far end of your backyard with an idyllic view you think would be the perfect spot for your hot tub? Think again. How often you will really use it is directly related to how close your hot tub is to your home. On a dark morning, or when it’s freezing outside, are you really going to trek across the yard to get in the hot tub every day? Keep in mind your hot tub will also require an electrical hook-up as you think of spots to place it.

    Beachcomber Tip:

    Position your spa in close proximity to a door. If you are worried about noise, then be sure to choose a model with a dedicated circulation pump that quietly circulates the water 24 hours a day, eliminating the need for loud filtration cycles, such as the Beachcomber Hot Tubs Hush Pump.

    Structural Support:

    No matter where you are planning on putting your hot tub, it will need the proper structural support. An empty hot tub is already a heavy object. Add in 400 gallons or so of water, your hot tub can weigh over 5,000 pounds. No matter where you choose to install your hot tub, a solid foundation such as a concrete pad will be necessary.

    Sinking A Hot Tub Into A Deck:

    If you plan on sinking or installing on a deck, joist and beams need to be sized to support the heavy load. We highly recommend consulting a structural engineer in the design plan if the deck is elevated to ensure it meets any necessary municipal codes and building standards.

    Remember to follow the checklist above and feel free to contact a member of the Beachcomber Hot Tubs team should you have any questions about where the place your hot tub.

  • HOT TUB SHOPPING GUIDE

    HOT TUB SHOPPING GUIDE

    How To Narrow Down Your Options

    You have made the decision to buy a hot tub. You’re now on the path to owning and loving an investment that you and your family can enjoy for years and years to come, but the next steps you take are critical. How can you be sure you are getting the best deal for your money? And with so many hot tub manufacturers and models to choose from, how can you be sure you are buying the best possible hot tub for you?

    The Questions You Need To Ask When Shopping For A Hot Tub

     

    In order to narrow down your options, follow the steps below:

     

    #1: What’s my budget?

    Hot tub pricing can vary from $4,000 to up to $25,000 depending on the retailer. Different price points reflect different features, jetting, and size, but most often come down to the quality in the construction.

    Beachcomber Tip:

    Go with the manufacturer you think has the best reputation from current owners. Look at reviews of the specific models that align with your budget and be willing to let go of certain add-on features or a larger size if it means avoiding a less reputable, budget hot tub manufacturer. When you go for a lower price point hot tub, you’re looking at a very short-term no-frills experience. Hot tubs at the price at or below $6,000 most often are so poorly insulated you’ll end up paying far more in the long run to operate them.

     

    #2: What are my biggest must-have features?

    With so much to choose from in add-on features and hot tub model configurations, it’s important you think about what matters most to you in your purchase prior to stepping into a showroom or speaking to a representative. What will you be using it for? Hydrotherapy for muscle pain? Socializing? Think hard about your expectations so you won’t end up disappointed.

    Beachcomber Tip:

    When you’re comparing your budget to the models available, we recommend that you make a list of “must-haves” vs. “nice-to-haves”. These lists will help you understand the available options in the price range with your “must-have” amenities.

     

    #3: When do I want my hot tub by?

    Much like shopping for a car, most hot tub manufacturers offer the ability to customize your order with the features and finishes you choose. Be aware that this can not only impact your bottom line, but also the timeline in which your chosen model will be available to ship. If you want a hot tub for the fall, start shopping earlier in the summer to allow 6-8 weeks for construction and delivery. Many manufacturers, including Beachcomber Hot Tubs, also offer quick ship models that are pre-built and ready to ship in just days, however be prepared to be more limited in your options should you choose this route.

    Beachcomber Tip:

    Sometimes, we hear prospective owners delaying on their purchase time in order to get more prepared financially for the investment. One alternative option is hot tub financing. We offer prospective owners the ability to set-up a  bi-weekly payment structure for their purchase, with the option to add additional payments at any time with zero penalty. This way you can enjoy your hot tub sooner, without over stretching yourself financially.

     

     

  • HOT TUB ACCESSORIES GUIDE JUNE 2018

    HOT TUB ACCESSORIES GUIDE JUNE 2018

    A Beachcomber Hot Tub is a place you can relax and enjoy with friends and family, or alone for a therapeutic soak. It’s the perfect accessory to a healthy lifestyle, and for staying connected with those you love. But what accessories do you really need to make your hot tub experience complete? This month only, you have the chance to make big enhancements to your hot tub, for way less, with over 50% off our Family Bundle Upgrade!

     

    Here’s a quick guide to our accessory products, and how they’ll help make your hot tub the staycation of your dreams all year long:

    Slide ‘N Store X-Treme Cover Remover

    Hot tub covers can be heavy, and are susceptible to damage if left to sit on the ground each time you use your hot tub. A hydraulic cover removal system solves both of these problems, allowing you to easily remove and replace your cover, while keeping it safe from damage. This is especially important for frequent hot tub users, and those suffering from chronic back and muscle pains. A well-built, durable hot tub cover lifter is an investment you shouldn’t think twice about making.

    ClearTech UVC Advanced filtration

    Traditionally, hot tub water is maintained through added treatment programs to the water in order to balance and clarify. Beachcomber Hot Tubs has developed an easier way for spa water treatment, through our ClearTech UVC filtration system upgrade. Harnessing the natural power of the sun’s UV light, this hot tub water treatment technology alters bacteria in hot tub water rendering it completely harmless and cuts down on your need for traditional sanitizers by up to 70%, while producing no harmful by-products as a result! Less chemicals, less owner upkeep, and even healthier water for you and your family to enjoy.

    Care Free Water Care System

    While ClearTech UVC reduces your need for sanitizer, it does not eliminate the need for water treatment. For this, we have developed a healthier alternative to traditional programs with our Care Free line-up of products. Replacing water conditioners such as sequestering agents, oxidizers, biofilm disruptors, and clarifiers, this 4-in-1 solution delivers the clearest results, with less product and time. It’s important to find a water care system that is manageable and meets your safety standards. Care Free offers the gold standard!  

    Family Towel Set

    Sounds pretty simple doesn’t it? But don’t rely on standard indoor towels for your hot tub and instead enjoy the warm embrace of Beachcomber’s 4 pack of embroidered hot tub towels to make every soaking experience enjoyable from the minute you walk out the door to the minute you step back inside. 

  • HOT TUB INSTALLATION: HERE’S WHAT TO KNOW

    HOT TUB INSTALLATION: HERE’S WHAT TO KNOW

    One of the first questions we hear from potential hot tub buyers is how difficult and costly will installation be? The answer, has as much to do with us, as it does with you, and the preparation steps you take.

     

    Here are a few ways you can cut down on costs and potential headaches when it comes to bringing a hot tub home.

    Start By Measuring & Surveying Your Available Space

    Before you enter into a hot tub showroom or start looking at models online, make sure you properly measure out the space where you are intending to place the tub. We recommend positioning your outdoor spa close to a door as you want to ensure it is as accessible as possible at all times of the year, (and in all kinds of weather). If you are worried about noise, be sure to choose a model with a dedicated circulation pump that quietly circulates the water 24 hours a day, like the Hush Pump available in Beachcomber Hot Tub models. When measuring, always keep in mind you will need an added space of one to two feet around at least two-sides of the hot tub to allow for maintenance and accommodate accessories.

    Install a GFCI Breaker

    Most hot tub models need a GFCI breaker in North America as they require a 240 V hook-up that is not standard in North American homes. Have this installed by a licensed electrician prior to the delivery of the hot tub, so that you can quickly get your hot tub operating after it’s delivered.

    Ensure A Clear, Level Pathway for a Smooth Install Day

    We highly recommend going through a pre-delivery checklist with a member of our team to ensure you have everything covered in the delivery process. Things to think about include clearance between fences, roofs, and planters, as well as the number of steps to your chosen destination. These potential obstacles can impact what’s required by the delivery team on the day of installation, and by noting and communicating them ahead of time you can save time and money.

    As always, make sure you speak to your local dealer or a member of the Beachcomber Support Team with any specific questions to keep yourself protected from additional fees on delivery day.

  • How Much Does A Hot Tub Really Cost in 2018

    How Much Does A Hot Tub Really Cost in 2018

    A hot tub is a long-term, life-changing investment. Finding the right model can make all the difference between a hot tub you absolutely love, and one that’s left unused after a few years in your backyard. So how can you shop wisely and confidently for your home spa? 

     

    When it comes to budget, the sticker price of a hot tub only tells you part of the story…

     

    Up-front costs can sometimes leave prospective buyers second guessing their decision, but it’s important to maintain a long-term perspective and the expected lifespan and operational costs of your investment. When you go with a low-budget hot tub, you’re looking at a very short-term, no-frills experience. A Beachcomber Hot Tub, on the other hand, can last 15 to 20 years or longer with proper maintenance and water care.

     

    Hot tubs at or below the $5,000 price point are most often so poorly insulated you’ll end up paying hundreds more each year to operate them than if you invest in a quality construction. That’s why at Beachcomber Hot Tubs, we use the same construction standards and materials across every model.

     

    When it comes to construction, look closely at the insulation, the density of the cover you choose, the pump, and the heaters. Essentially, a high-quality construction is going to be able to maintain and circulate heat at a much, much more efficient rate than a flimsy, poorly insulated cheaper option. More on factors to look for in your hot tub!

     

    First-Time Buyer’s Tip
    When you’re comparing your budgets to the models available, we recommend that you make a list of “must-haves” vs. “nice-to-haves”. These lists will help you understand the available options in the price range.

     

    Many first-time hot tub buyers are unaware of the potential additional costs relating to installation. Depending on the model and location you choose, additional services may be required to ensure a smooth installation from electrical wiring to landscaping. The pre-delivery guide offered by Beachcomber should help guide you in getting a fuller picture of the checkboxes you need to have covered in this process. Be sure to ask your dealer about any items that you are still unclear on and ensure you are not going to be caught off guard by any additional fees.  

    Buy Now & Pay Later With Beachcomber

    We are also proud to offer the opportunity for new owners to set-up a financing structure, with bi-weekly payments as low as $29.00. You can increase the payments at any time if you want to pay off your purchase faster, with zero penalty. LEARN MORE

  • Why We Don’t Use Real Wood

    Why We Don’t Use Real Wood

    If there’s one thing the Pacific Northwest of Canada is known for it’s the mesmerizing old-growth forests that cover its landscape. As proud residents of this region, Beachcomber’s team has continuously adopted manufacturing practices that have made the local environment a priority.

     

    Environmentally conscious manufacturing

    A Better Way To Build Hot Tubs

    One such example is in how we build our hot tub cabinetry as part of the complete manufacturing process that takes place 100% inside our Surrey, BC factory. Beachcomber Hot Tubs’ signature Enviroskirt cabinets have been designed to give the look and feel of natural wood, without the need for cutting down trees. Instead, we use a highly-tensile plastic material that looks identical, complete with woodgrain embossing, that also happens to be 100% recyclable!

    Maintenance-Free Hot Tub Ownership

    Beyond the environmental benefits of avoiding deforestation through the commercial use of wood, the tongue and groove, hand-assembled enviroskirt cabinets that come standard across every Beachcomber Hot Tub model are also incredibly durable and maintenance-free. That means, as an owner, you don’t need to worry about weathering or re-staining as your hot tub gets older. The Enviroskirt looks just as good as the day you brought your Beachcomber home.

  • Choosing The Right Add-Ons For Your Hot Tub

    Choosing The Right Add-Ons For Your Hot Tub

    Bringing home a new hot tub is a long-term investment. Choosing the right one can make all the difference between a model that’s okay and fits your basic needs, and finding the absolutely perfect hot tub you and your family will love for years and years to come.

    Once you’ve carefully decided on the right fit model, it’s important to weigh all the available enhancements, and pick carefully from must-haves, nice-to-haves, and don’t needs. Luckily for you, we have some advice to get you started.

    Consider these factors in selecting the add-ons for your hot tub:

     

    Guarantee & Protection

    It’s important to keep yourself protected in your purchase, and look online for owner reviews on the manufacturers you are considering to get a better sense of product quality. It’s equally important to then ensure you have a full understanding of the protection guarantee that comes with your hot tub. At Beachcomber, we offer lifetime coverage on the structural integrity of the fireglass composite, as well as 2 years on major components of your hot tub standard with purchase. We also offer the opportunity to extend that coverage for another 3 years with our Premium Guarantee. By making this upgrade, you’ll receive 5 years of protection coverage on major components of your hot tub, including the Smart Sense Heater, Enviroskirt Cabinetry, and more.

    Electrical Compatibility & Support

    Almost all hot tub models require a 240V hook-up that is not standard in North America home construction. Therefore, before your hot tub is even delivered, you need to ensure you have a Ground Fault Circuit Breaker installed. Designed for easy installation by a qualified electrician, ensure you consult with a sales specialist to ensure you have the correct Beachcomber GFCI purchased to ensure a smooth installation. The correct size of wire and breaker varies with the distance from the panel to the spa as well as the specs of the pump and heater.

    Water Care

    Once you have the protection coverage and electrical wiring needed for initial installation and peace of mind, your hot tub is almost ready to be enjoyed. The next step is choosing the right water care program. An anxiety of many prospective and new hot tub buyers is the use of harsh chemicals in the water and the safety of the people who are enjoying it. Listening to the community, Beachcomber created our exclusive Care Free water program. Replacing traditional water conditioners, Care Free delivers the healthiest, cleanest water imaginable, with much less product and time. Almost odourless, Care Free Water Care helps maintain a more stable water balance, leaves the water cleaner, and maximize your filter’s performance. Care Free is designed to use in conjunction with Care Free Boost, our sanitizer. Together, they work to condition and sanitize your hot tub water.

    Ease of Use

    In order to get the most use out of your hot tub, you want to ensure it’s as accessible as possible, even during the cold, Canadian winters. We recommend you place your hot tub close to a door, to ensure it’s easy to slip in and out. A cover removal system, like Beachcomber’s Lift ‘N Store can also do wonders for making a quick soak in the morning or night that much easier to enjoy. The cantilever design is affixed to the bottom of the hot tub, and slips in at the hinge as the hot tub cover is flipped open. This process makes easy work of lifting the cover out of the way and allows you to get in and out of your hot tub with minimal effort.
