• Staying Sun-Safe in a Hot Tub

    Staying Sun-Safe in a Hot Tub

    While you’re enjoying the summer, it’s extremely important to make sure you’re taking the steps necessary to protect yourself from the sun. Skin exposure without protection can lead to serious long-term effects, and too much heat can cause sunstroke.

    A few simple tips for staying sun-safe in your hot tub:

    Plan your time in your hot tub

    Remember, the sun is strongest in the late morning and afternoon, so try to avoid being out in your hot tub during these times. It’s best to enjoy your hot tub in the earlier morning, or in the evening and night, to avoid exposure to an excess of UV rays. Don’t spend too much time in it at once. 15 minutes is all you need to get your daily therapeutic boost.

    Create Shade

    We often ask owners about their installation plans for their new hot tub, and we always encourage them to find a spot that provides a level of shade, or to invest in a large umbrella that can provide a flexible level of protection when the sun is too strong. Permanent solutions include a pergola or gazebo, while a quality patio umbrella or shade sail can give you the option to keep your hot tub open to the night sky or early morning breeze, with protection when you need it.

    Sunscreen! Sunscreen! Sunscreen!

    As with all outdoor summertime activities, if you plan on using your hot tub during the day always remember to apply and re-apply a waterproof sunscreen that can keep your skin protected. Just remember that this might add to the maintenance required for your hot tub water. Put the sunscreen on at least 15 minutes before, and re-apply the sunscreen after you’re done in the hot tub if you plan on staying out in the sun.

    Stay Hydrated

    The more your body heats, the more need you to keep yourself hydrated. Before you get into your hot tub, make sure to drink a full glass of water, and bring out a bottle or two to sip on as you soak. Listen to your body, and when you feel it’s getting too hot, it’s time to get out and step back inside or under the shade.

  • 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.

  • CREATING A BACKYARD OASIS

    CREATING A BACKYARD OASIS

    Your dream summer vacation is as close as your backyard. With the weather heating up, it’s time to start dressing up your outdoor living spaces and creating the ultimate retreat just steps from the door. Below are a few tips to get you started, on any budget!

    How To Design Your Backyard Getaway

    Think of your backyard as an extension of your indoor spaces

    Design your patio space like any other indoor living space when you are coming up with your concept. Think furnishings, lighting, colour, decorative accents, and overall design flow.

    Furnish for comfort & durability

    Today, there are so many affordable, stylish choices for outdoor furniture, it can be hard to know where to even start. Before you get overwhelmed by the selection, think about the main purpose of the space. Do you want a formal dining area with a table and chairs? A laid-back lounge with plush furnishings and accent tables? Start with the biggest pieces as you shop, and layer in accents later when you have the budget for it. 

    Ensure Shade and Privacy

    Your outdoor living space will feel more like an oasis if you create a sense of enclosure. Use lattice and landscaping to define the outdoor space and build privacy screens from the neighbours and inside spaces in the home. Add a large patio umbrella or a pergola to create shade to escape the summer sun. These can also be used to deliver focal points and separate your areas according to function, or provide transitions from one outdoor living space to another.

    Add Colour Through Accents & Planters

    Cushions are a great way to add comfort as well as infuse colour into your outdoor spaces. You can switch them up after a few years to create a totally new design feel, without having to spend a lot of money. When you are shopping, make sure you select cushions with an outdoor fabric that is UV and water resistance for added durability. Flowers and foliage are another way to add beautiful colours to your space as well as deliver privacy. 

    Invest In A Hot Tub or Spa

    For long, relaxing soaks at the end of the day, a hot tub or spa out on the deck is a must-have luxury. To determine the best location for the hot tub, consider privacy, access to the house, and whether you want the hot tub in the sunshine or shade. You’ll also need additional room for sitting and walking around the hot tub. Remember, a hot tub full of water weighs 2 tons, so it will need a foundation independent of the deck’s foundation.

    Outdoor Lighting

    You will want to enjoy your backyard getaway after the sun goes down. Include an array of outdoor lighting by starting with porch lights that illuminate access to the house and provide ambient lighting. For dining and conversation zones, candlelight, wall mount downlights, or dimmable electric lamps create a relaxed mood. Steps and walkways should be illuminated for safety. You can also use solar-powered lights or low voltage lights to add drama and interest to the landscape and to highlight paths. Combine a mix of lighting sources to make your backyard getaway a magical place after dark.

  • Father’s Day Gift Ideas

    Father’s Day Gift Ideas

    Ok, don’t panic – Father’s Day has crept up upon us yet again, but is still far enough away that you can plan accordingly to avoid getting yet another variation of the “#1 Dad” mug. (Not saying that he didn’t love those…)

    In advance of this Sunday, June 17th, consider the following three factors for gift giving success:

    Budget – As cliched as it sounds, it really is the thought that counts. If you’re on a budget or celebrating more than one special guy this weekend, think creatively and don’t despair.

    Type of Dad – Take into account the types of gifts that he usually puts to good use. If you gave him some sort of handyman tool for Christmas, but he struggles with changing lightbulbs, try something with a little more foresight for Father’s Day.

    Personalization Options — Whether it’s with an engraving or a monogram, personalizing a gift is a sure way to honor your father, and make him feel exclusive. Think of this as the grown up version of the handcrafted gifts you made him in school as a kid.

    Navy Seal Aluminum Wallet

    Considering that this wallet has ‘Navy Seal’ in the name, it’s safe to say that it will keep dad’s cards safe. An expandable track can hold up to 12 cards and the outer money clip will fit dozens of bills. Slim enough to fit in his front pocket, it’s also outfitted with RFID technology to protect his personal identity. And there’s a karmic bonus, as 5% of proceeds go towards the Navy SEAL Foundation, so he can feel good about his wallet upgrade.

    Philips Beard Trimmer 7000

    With an astounding twenty length settings optimized for precision, this Philips beard trimmer could be the Rolls Royce of grooming tools. If dad’s beard has seen better days, you’re essentially gifting him with a path to self-improvement as well (so noble of you!)

    $55.99 (Regular $69.99) at the Bay

    Michael Symon’s Playing with Fire Cookbook

    In his new book, Chef Michael Symon gathers the best of his favorite BBQ dishes, all of which are surprisingly easy to make at home — even without a full smoker. From several different styles of ribs to a fireplace-roasted chicken to tips on best wood to use, it’s basically a BBQ bible, and can appeal to grill masters and BBQ amateurs alike.

    $34.48 at Amazon.ca

    Dark Chocolate Bourbon Bears

    Gummy bears that are dashing, dark and debonair?! If your dad has a sweet tooth, this upscale bourbon and dark chocolate version of an old candy classic could be just what he’s craving. The elegant box makes gift wrapping optional, and sets this as our best last-minute option.

    $38.19 at Sugarfina (Nordstrom)

    Beachcomber Bluetooth Speaker

    For a nod to the technophile or music buff, the waterproof Beachcomber outdoor speaker is an excellent outdoor entertaining solution, designed for use in the hot tub. It features a 6-watt output, carabineer clip, and a working range of up to 55 feet, and connects wirelessly with your smartphone and Bluetooth-enabled music devices.

    $99 (Regular $169) on the Beachcomber e-store

    Beachcomber Hot Tub + $500 Gift Credit

    Surprising dad with a hot tub is on the higher end of the gift giving scale in terms of wow factor (and budget). For the month of June, however, not only can you take advantage of a 6 month financing offer when you purchase a Beachcomber (no payments and 0% interest until 2019), but also snag an additional one week only offer — a $500 gift credit, available June 10th to 17th! Whether you choose to keep the $500 credit for yourself, or benevolently add it to dad’s gift (ie. to stock his Water Care supply), this is one gift guaranteed to be unforgettable!

  • Starting Up Your Hot Tub

    Starting Up Your Hot Tub

    Below is our step-by-step guide for starting up a new Beachcomber Hot Tub. When your hot tub is delivered, you have the option to have a qualified technician from our team complete a wet start of your spa, that includes filling and balancing the water. If you are interested in this option please speak to your local dealer or a member of the Beachcomber team as you complete your hot tub purchase.

    How To Start Up Your Beachcomber Hot Tub

    STEP 1: Fill & Condition

    Before anything else, ensure the Drain & Fill valve is closted and the Guillotine valves are open. Please consult your Owner’s Guide if you have any issue identifying these components. Using the FRESH FILL™ pre-filter attached to your garden hose start filling up the hot tub. Once hot tub water is up past the skimmer, you are now safe to turn on the power at the GFCI. Turn on FLEXJET Pump and open air control dials to purge any air out of lines.

    After the hot tub is circulating with all bubbles out of the lines, add ELIMINATE™ to protect your hot tub from corrosion and mineral build-up. Then add a weekly dose of ELIMINATE PLUS™ to sequester metals and prevent staining, PUREZYME™ to prevent scum build-up and PURE BLUE™ to prevent cloudy water and give water a sparkle; Or add a dose of CARE FREE which is Beachcomber’s weekly 4-in-1 conditioner.

    Product Details

    FRESH FILL™ hot tub pre-filter easily connects to your garden hose and works with all hot tubs. It utilises food grade activated carbon and proprietary filtration media for the removal of metals, volatile organic compounds and suspended solids before they reach your hot tub.  

    ELIMINATE™ is a liquid concentrate formulated to prevent and inhibit corrosion on hot tub surfaces, fixtures, and equipment. Add an entire 500 mL bottle at every hot tub start-up.

    ELIMINATE PLUS™ is formulated to prevent stains and calcium scale in hot tubs and improves water clarity in hot tub water by sequestering metals. To be used as part of a preventative weekly program.

    PUREZYME™ is a natural microbial enzyme formulated to eliminate scum, reduce odours, and improve water clarity and sanitizer efficiency by disrupting biofilm formation and accumulation. To be used as part of a preventative weekly program.

    PURE BLUE™ is a highly concentrated, liquid clarifier formulated to clear cloudy hot tub water and restore its sparkle. It is designed to coagulate suspended micro-particles to form masses large enough to be removed efficiently by the Microfilter™. To be used as part of a preventative weekly program.

    CARE FREE is the industry’s gold standard in water care systems. CARE FREE is a 4-in-1 weekly water care system that replaces traditional water conditioners such as sequestering agents, oxidizers, biofilm disruptors and clarifiers. It is designed to use in conjunction with the CARE FREE BOOST™ sanitizer.

    STEP 2: Heat & Accessorize

    To start your hot tub water for the first time, it’s convenient to start in the evening to allow the conditioning products the time they need to do their job overnight. Once your hot tub is running and circulating it is the perfect time to add or replace your hot tub accessories such as FILTER SAVERS and HYDRO MOP and turn up the heat so you and your family can be soaking away blissfully in a few short hours. The hot tub will begin to heat to your pre-set temperature or 100F (38° C) as a factory pre-set temperature. For extra comfortable silky smooth water, add a dose of SOFT to your water, your friends and family will notice.

    Product Details

    HYDROMOP™ absorbs unwanted oils and residue from your hot tub water to ensure the optimal water clarity and keep water lines clean.

    FILTER SAVERS  are made from a fine nylon material which traps leaves and debris which reduces maintenance and extends the life of your MICROFILTER™

    SOFT is a universal water enhancer that creates soothing comfortable water, improves water quality, and helps stabilize pH levels.  Soft is blended from natural occurring borate salts and is an excellent skin moisturizer, especially for those who suffer from dry skin conditions. Add before each use or weekly as desired.

    STEP 3: Balance & Sanitize

    Nothing is more important that testing your hot tub water and ensuring everything is perfectly balanced for bather comfort, water care product efficiency and hot tub equipment longevity. Use your Beachcomber test strips to determine your water care balance requirements.

    Add your Sanitizer/Oxidizer (Cl) or (Br) – 3 – 5 ppm – Use a Beachcomber BOOST or BLAST product. Refer to the sanitizer/oxidizer program that you are using for your hot tub, treat the water by distributing your oxidizer directly into the circulating heated water, and wait 15 minutes for the relaxation to commence.

    Step 4: ENJOY! 

    Make use of the following products to continue enjoying the best use out of your Beachcomber Hot Tub.

    Product Details

    TEST STRIPS  are the fastest and easiest way to test your hot tub. You should test at least 2 times per week and after each use.

    RESIST™ helps water to resist changes in pH, and increases the total alkalinity of hot tub water to prevent pH fluctuations. Maintain a proper Total Alkalinity (TA) level of 100 – 120 ppm

    PROTECT™ helps protect hot tub equipment and parts from etching by increasing the calcium level of hot tub water. Maintain a proper calcium hardness (CH) level of 150 – 200 ppm

    pH PLUS effective for minor pH increases of hot tub water to prevent corrosion and eye/skin irritation and increase sanitizer efficiency. Before adjusting pH, ensure your Total Alkalinity is balanced. Maintain a proper (pH) level of 7.2 – 7.8

    pH MINUS effective for minor pH decreases of hot tub water to prevent scaling, cloudy water and eye/skin irritation and increases sanitizer efficiency. Before adjusting pH, ensure your Total Alkalinity is balanced. Maintain a proper (pH) level of 7.2 – 7.8

  • Adding a Hot Tub Soak to Your Outdoor Cardio Routine

    Adding a Hot Tub Soak to Your Outdoor Cardio Routine

    With the arrival of warm weather, the great outdoors may be beckoning to you, with promises of making your workout routine more interesting. If you’ve spent the winter running on a treadmill, however, there will certainly be some adjustment for your body when you attack the trails, with muscle soreness almost guaranteed.

    By incorporating a hot tub into your outdoor routine, you can maximize the benefits of hydrotherapy to ease your transition to outdoor cardio. There is often some debate around when the ideal time to soak is (before an outdoor run, shortly afterwards, or with a delay). What you ultimately decide works best for you will come down to personal preference, but there are some general guidelines to observe to stay safe.

    Consider these tips when incorporating hot tub soaking into your cardio routine:

     

    Soak Before. A short pre-exercise hot tub soak can make the run more pleasant, especially on a cold day, because it increases blood flow to your legs. Remember that you’ve already started sweating when you soak, and be sure keep hydrated.

    Soak Immediately after. This is the time to play it cool. Applying ice or cold water is the best move, as this will limit blood flow to the inflamed muscles so they’ll feel better fast. Heat would keep them inflamed, and continued sweating would keep you dehydrated.

    Soak 36-48 Hours Later. You’ll get maximum benefits from the hot tub by soaking 36 to 48 hours after an intense outdoor cardio session (soaking sooner is fine after shorter runs). By then, the inflammation is subsiding and the increased blood flow will stimulate healing for your damaged muscles. Plus, it’s a great reward for your racing success.

    Not only can your hot tub serve double duty as your warm up and post-workout relaxation space, but you can bring your workout into the water as well! For anyone with joint pain or sports injuries, combining therapeutic exercises with the soothing heat and buoyancy of the water can reap great rewards.

    Back and Leg Lifts

    Strengthening your legs and hips can help to improve balance, add support to your back muscles, and decrease the risk of injury during outdoor runs. Stand up in your hot tub, using the walls or lip of the tub for support, and extend your leg outward and to the side. Loosen up your hips by bringing your knees up one at a time, as close to your chest as you can, then lower and extend them behind you. Repeat each exercise in sets of 3, with 10 to 15 repetitions to start, building in number and frequency as you grow stronger.

    Aerobics

    You can also add an aerobic, cardio-focused component to your hot tub workout with bicycle kicks, alternating this with your more intense outdoor runs. Sit in the hot tub with your legs toward the center, hold the edge of the seat with both hands, and elevate your legs, keeping them in the water. Make a pedaling motion as if you’re riding a bicycle. Pedal for 30 seconds, alternating speeds for a better workout, then take a break and repeat as desired.

    Remember: Soak, run, ice, soak later. You’ll be warmed up, you’ll run at your prime, you’ll cool down in the safest way, and you’ll look forward to a blissful recovery in your Beachcomber!

  • How Many Seats Do You Need In Your Hot Tub?

    How Many Seats Do You Need In Your Hot Tub?

    Hot tubs today come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Once you decide you’re ready to bring one home, it’s extremely important you really ask yourself the reasons why as you browse the available models. Relaxation? Help relieve stress or muscle pain? 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 impact the size of the tub, so you’ll need to know where it’s going and if size restrictions apply before you begin comparing options.

    Try to be realistic with your expectations. You really want to consider how you will be primarily using your hot tub to get the best one for you.

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

    Who’s Using It?

    You will not only want to consider the number of people who will be regularly using your hot tub, but also look at the layout and how this will work for these gatherings. How big is the foot well? How close together are the seats available? Is one of the seats a lounger that might be great for hydrotherapy but awkward for larger groups?

    Again, really think about how often your hot tub will really be used for social gatherings. Do you entertain a lot? Do you have a large family? If it’s normally going to be just you and your spouse at home, or maybe you two and another couple, then a 4-person tub might be all you need.

    What’s It For?

    Not all of these are by any means mutually exclusive, but if you’re after relaxation and hydrotherapy over socializing, than it might be good to maximize your investment with a tub that is more tailored to these benefits, that offers a slightly smaller footprint. Look at your budget and consider what is most important to you as you comparatively shop.

    Where’s It Going? 

    It all comes down to how much space you have, and how you want to design around the hot tub 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 selecting a Beachcomber model that’s right for you, take these factors into consideration and choose a seat number and combination that best fits your needs.

  • 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.

  • 5 Simple Tricks to Stay Fit

    5 Simple Tricks to Stay Fit

    It seems there is never enough time to fit all that you’d like to do into a day. But scanning headlines to get your current events isn’t the only time saving hack available. If the minimum recommended amount of exercise (30 minutes, five days a week) seems tricky to nail down, realize that it doesn’t have to be done consecutively! In fact, incorporating short 10-minute bouts or “mini workouts,” among your regular activities, might even be more effective than a sustained session, according to a study from Arizona State University.

     

    Check out these five ways to seamlessly fit exercise into your busy day.

     

    1.  Meetings on the move

    Don’t think that a lunchtime spin class is the only way to incorporate some exercise into your work day. If your days are long and chock full of meetings, consider taking those meetings outside. If no visual aids or presentations are required, you can have the discussion en route to/from the closest coffee shop instead. Even doing laps around the building while you strategize can be an effective use of time.

    2.  Turn your errands into exercise

    The mall is a great place to quickly cover lots of ground, and accumulate your 10-minute exercise bout in no time! Make sure to park far away, so the parking lot trek can count toward your steps. If you have appointments located close enough together that you can walk, plan accordingly and leave the car at home (enjoy the added bonus of not needing to hunt for parking!) And when faced with an escalator, ALWAYS take the stairs.

    3.  Commercial break crunches

    Kick the couch potato time up a notch by doing a short circuit of callisthenics such as lunges, push-ups, and crunches for full-body toning, during commercial breaks. If streaming your shows commercial free, you can do this during the slow parts instead, or make your own timed breaks.

    4.  Socialize outside

    Exercising lightly while catching up with a friend makes the activity more enjoyable, plus is an efficient use of time. Swap your next post-work cocktails for a stroll in the park with coffees. Your liver will thank you, you’ll get your steps in, and you’ll likely sleep more soundly. It’s a win-win all around.

    5.  Meditate before bed

    If meditation seems impossible – and it is much harder than you might think to silence your thoughts! – you can light some candles and try some easy yoga stretches to calm your body and mind before bed. And for the ultimate relaxation experience, slip into the hot tub right afterwards to drain the stress of the day and ease any muscle tension.
