• Essentials For New Hot Tub Buyers

    Essentials For New Hot Tub Buyers

    A hot tub is an incredible lifetime investment into a healthier, happier lifestyle at home. Offering unparalleled benefits in therapy, relaxation, and stress-relief, a hot tub is the perfect way to make 2019 the best year yet for the whole family.

    Once you decide on the model that best fits your budget and needs, you also need to think about what accessories you’ll need to maintain and get the best possible use from your investment. We’ve compiled a cheat-sheet below on the essentials we believe new owners need to invest into:

    What You Need For Your Beachcomber Hot Tub®

    Water Care Products

    To use your hot tub frequently, you’ll need a water treatment program that keeps the massaging waters clear and safe for use. We have developed a healthier alternative to traditional treatment 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. As a new owner, it’s important to find a water care system that is manageable and meets your safety requirements. Care Free offers the gold standard!   

    GFCI Circuit Breaker

    As almost all standard hot tubs are designed with a 240 voltage, prior to installation you will need a GFCI Circuit Breaker to ensure your hot tub runs smoothly. Designed for easy installation by a qualified electrician, you have the choice of a 40, 50, or 60 amp units to facilitate your installation.

    Cover Lifter

    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 cover removal system solves both 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.

    5-Year Premium Guarantee

    When you buy a Beachcomber Hot Tub®, we want you to feel as safe and secure in your investment as possible. By upgraded to our 5-Year Extended Premium Guarantee, you’ll have total peace of mind with 5 years of coverage on major components of your hot tub.

  • 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.

    Consider the benefits of a hot tub investment over a vacation, to create new traditions this Fall!

     

    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.

     

  • What Makes A Hot Tub Energy Efficient?

    What Makes A Hot Tub Energy Efficient?

    At Beachcomber Hot Tubs, we always look at our products as both lifestyle and lifetime investments. Lifestyle, as they offer incredible benefits for your body and mind, while bringing you closer to the people you love, and lifetime as they are built to last generations of use.

    A constant point of concern for prospective buyers and new owners is the cost of operation, particularly when the winter weather creeps in with its permanent chill. At Beachcomber, we are proud to say that our hot tubs are among the most energy efficient in the world! Energy optimization, and its resulting savings to you as an owner, is built into the construction of every hot tub we produce. Below are a few of the ways choosing Beachcomber as your hot tub manufacturer of choice  is the best way to keep you out of the red in your energy bill, and keep you totally satisfied, warm, and relaxed, all year-long.

    Important Factors in Hot Tub Energy Efficiency

    You can’t talk about energy efficiency in a hot tub and not start with insulation. Fully insulating the interior cavity of the hot tub continues to be the most important element in minimizing heat loss and maximizing efficiency – and it’s something that Beachcomber Hot Tubs continues to lead the industry in.

    With our Hybrid4™ 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 temperature, which ensures long equipment life, and maintains your desired water temperature.

    Another big differentiator to look for when shopping for a hot tub is the cover. An old or ill-fitting hot tub cover will allow heat to readily escape from the surface of your hot tub when it’s not in use. This will cause your hot tub to work in overdrive in maintaining the set temperature. At Beachcomber, we manufacture our HEATSHIELD™ hot tub covers with up to 45% more insulating power than standard covers thanks to our air-tight heat-sealed design,  and reinforced construction.

    Then, you need to look at the motors and pumps. Available on all Hybrid4™ models, our HUSH PUMP™ system heats and cleans water 24/7, with a fraction of the energy output and almost zero noise. Our engineering team has also developed an effective radiant ambient heating system within the construction of our hot tubs, successfully recycling the heat from inside the hot tub to maintain set temperature levels.

    Finally, the foundation also plays an important role in the efficiency of your hot tub purchase. Look for a model that has a sturdy foundation, like the PERMA-SEAL™ in all Beachcomber models, that stops the internal insulated foam cavity from absorbing moisture and heat.

     

    More than 40 years after we began constructing our hot tubs to exceed the industry in energy efficiency, Beachcomber continues to carry on our tradition of technological excellence. Learn more on the construction of our models by clicking the link below or contacting your local dealership.

  • How a HEATSHIELD™ Saves You Money

    How a HEATSHIELD™ Saves You Money

    Before the fast pace and burgeoning bills of the holidays, the Fall is a great time to save money. Plus, you need a hot tub cover to seal in heat during the cooler months, so it’s worth remembering how critical your cover choice is to energy efficiency and cost savings.

    How Investing in a Heatshield Cover = Cost Savings

    A HEATSHIELD™ by Beachcomber is designed for maximum energy efficiency and boasts 45% more insulating power than industry standard hot tub covers. Designed to lock in your hot tub’s heat and energy, the HEATSHIELD™ will save you up to $500 per year in heating costs!*

     

    Why is this? What makes a HEATSHIELD hot tub cover perform better?

    Made in Canada

    Every Beachcomber HEATSHIELD™ is proudly made in Canada with quality materials and craftsmanship, making it an investment that will withstand the elements and last the test of time.

    Heat-Sealed Construction

    The airtight, heat-seal design effectively keeps the cold air out, which will maximize the longevity and performance of your cover.

    Durable Against All Elements

    Reinforced light-weight aluminum keeps the structure of your cover looking like new. Mildew, moisture, and UV rays are simply no match against the marine grade vinyl skin!

    Two Year Guarantee

    We stand behind our products. This is our commitment to our customers. Our HEATSHIELD™ will perform as promised.

     

    Consider also:

    Given how critical a high performing cover is to conserve heat, save electrical costs and keep dirt and debris out of your hot tub, we cannot overemphasize the importance of its regular use. When well maintained, the HEATSHIELD™ is very easy to remove. And combining it with a cover lifter will make nightly use even easier. The Airlift and Slide ‘n Store Extreme are two options worth checking out!

     

    And if you purchase your HEATSHIELD™ before October 8th, you’ll get a FREE Drain & Fill Tote (valued at $129).

  • Choosing the Best Placement for Your Hot Tub

    Choosing the Best Placement for Your Hot Tub

    As the weather worsens, keep in mind that the oasis of the Beachcomber in your backyard is just a few steps away. Or so it should be. By keeping your hot tub close to your home and easily accessible, you’ll be able to quickly step in and enjoy its incredible hydrotherapeutic benefits, even throughout the rains of fall and deep freeze of winter.

    Placing Your Hot Tub

    Beachcomber owners surveyed say that the optimal placement for your hot tub is within 10 feet from your back door. You’ll also want it conveniently located to a place inside for drying and changing and close to a water line and hose for filling.

    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? If seclusion is your preference, think about building an enclosure or putting it in a gazebo-like structure, with curtains that can be closed or open.
    • 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.

     

    And remember to plan your delivery route as well, for a smooth and efficient installation process. For more on installation best practices, download the Beachcomber Hot Tubs Pre-Delivery Guide.

    When deciding on placement, keep in mind that a Beachcomber hot tub can sit on any foundation that is level and can support its weight. Cement patio tiles or interlocking bricks are just some of the relatively simple solutions for you to create a solid foundation for your hot tub. Just ensure you avoid installation in a low area where water may accumulate and damage the equipment, and that your hot tub is positioned so access to the equipment compartment will not be blocked.

     

    Beachcomber Tip:

    Remember to keep your hot tub covered when not in use and placed far enough away from low hanging branches to save you time and energy in cleaning out tree needles, leaves, branches, or sap.

     

  • Hot Tubs: Why How It’s Made Really, Really Matters

    Hot Tubs: Why How It’s Made Really, Really Matters

    Most of the time, potential hot tub buyers find themselves stuck in a debate over the size, jet count, and seating available in different models as they try to narrow down the options. While making the right decisions here is vital to your enjoyment of your purchase, what’s visible and on the surface of the hot tub isn’t the only thing that needs serious attention.

    What’s really going to impact the long-term enjoyment you get out of your hot tub is how it’s made, and quite often where.

    What to Look for in Hot Tub Construction

    Although most potential buyers believe a new hot tub costs between $3,000 – $5,000, the reality today is that a quality model costs between $7,000 – $20,000. While you save in the short-term on a cheaper model, you’ll end up paying far more in electrical bills, replacement parts, water treatments, and maintenance calls. Not to mention, you’ll be looking at a short-term, no frills experience with a much shorter product lifespan.

    As you will soon discover, the quality in the construction will not only make a big impact in the enjoyment you get inside of your hot tub, but will also make a world of difference in the reliability, performance, and the return on your long-term investment. Simply put, the cheaper the hot tub is to buy, often the cheaper the components that were used to build it. At Beachcomber Hot Tubs, we are proud to use the exact same materials and construction standards across all of our models, with difference in price reflected in the add-on options, finishes, jetting configurations, and size.

    So what to look for? Make note of the materials used as you look around and ask questions in-store.

    To the average person, a hot tub shell and outer cabinetry may come in different colours but they all look the same. But assuming that all cabinetry and shells are of the same quality can be a huge mistake. For instance, most high-quality hot tubs are made with acrylic. Acrylic is a hard, durable plastic that is resistant to chemical and UV damage. When you look at hot tubs at a lower price point from unreliable manufacturers, you are likely seeing molding that is made from rotary plastics. This is the same kind of material you will find in a kayak or a portable table.

    To choose the best shell, make sure it is durable and comes with an extended or lifetime warranty.

    Cabinetry is another important consideration, although earlier generations of hot tubs were made of durable redwood or cedar, most of today’s cabinetry is synthetic. The best hot tubs are made by manufacturers who have specially engineered their hot tubs for superior durability and protection from extreme hear, cold, and UV rays. When choosing a hot tub, look for a model that has built in structural cradle that can support the tub with or without the cabinet – this will ensure the weight stays balanced The Enviroskirt by Beachcomber Hot Tubs, for instance, is designed to capture the look and performance of real wood, without the weathering and maintenance requirements.

    These are a few of the reasons why it is so important to pay particular attention and educate yourself on the materials that are used. Ensure you find a durable, acrylic shell that is stain and scratch resistant, long-lasting cabinetry, and look for an intuitive control system that is accessible and easy-to-use at nighttime.

    Then Be Sure to Pay Attention to Where it’s Made

    Some hot tubs are made in countries known for cheap labour and few environmental regulations in order to decrease the production costs. Hot tubs produced in countries with lower labour costs and regulations tend to have more quality (not to mention ethical) control issues, and will most likely result in a smaller up-front cost but higher maintenance and shorter product lifetime.

    Every Beachcomber Hot Tub is 100% manufactured in our Surrey, BC factory, with the same materials, and construction standards applied across every model price point. Each stage of the production is checked by hand for absolute quality to ensure we uphold our zero-defects approach to manufacturing.
