• How Much Does A Hot Tub Really Cost in 2019

    How Much Does A Hot Tub Really Cost in 2019

    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.

    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!

  • How a Hot Tub Can Help You Keep Your New Year’s Resolution

    How a Hot Tub Can Help You Keep Your New Year’s Resolution

    With 2019 now well under way, it may be a good time to check in with yourself on your New Year’s resolution progress. It’s also a good time to reflect on the fact that not all resolutions have to involve giving something up. In fact, by making your hot tub a pivotal part of any New Year’s resolutions for health, you can add a wellness routine that keeps giving back. By taking advantage of your hot tub, in combination with your diet and exercise goals, you will likely find it easier to achieve improved wellness this year. If your resolution involves losing weight and you pair improved nutrition with more regular exercise, consider a pre-workout soak in your Beachcomber. If done in the morning, this can also be a great time to focus on your goals and plan for the day ahead. Enjoying a post-workout soak can serve as an impactful reward for following through on your regular commitment to exercise.

    Some Tips for Sticking to Your New Year’s Resolution:

     

    Write your resolution down

    The first mistake can be not recording your resolution. Writing it down will help you prioritize your vow for the new year and prevent you from falling back into bad habits.

     

    Do all you can to make your resolution into a daily habit

    Try to format your resolution in a way that allows you to make daily steps (however small) towards achieving it.

     

    Make your resolution something you are passionate about

    If your New Year’s resolution focuses on something you are passionate about improving, you’re much more likely to follow through with it than if your motivator for change were guilt.

     

    Be sure to tell someone close to you about your resolution

    Peer pressure can be a valuable motivator in sticking to your New Year’s resolution. Friends and family checking in can be a useful counter against cravings or reluctance to work out.

     

    Celebrate your milestones

    Reward yourself (perhaps monthly), for sticking with your plan. Maintaining a positive outlook and recognizing your determination will help you stay on track.

     

    Equip yourself for success

    If living healthier and happier is the focus of your resolution, make sure you have what you need to be successful. A hot tub not only soothes and relieves post workout muscle pain and tension, it also alleviates stress and anxiety, and helps you sleep soundly. Your relationships can also benefit from regular social soaks and family time in your Beachcomber, contributing toward your overall mental health and happiness!

     

  • Why you should make 2019 CARE FREE!

    Why you should make 2019 CARE FREE!

    The start of a new year is full of potential and possibility, as well as the opportunity to tackle things you may have been putting off. Like for example, investing in a hot tub due to concerns about water maintenance. A common misconception about hot tub ownership is the amount of time required for maintenance. By identifying the right water care solution for you, and planning accordingly, keeping your water healthy and balanced can be incredibly easy and take only a few minutes a week!

    You’ll need to weigh three main factors when choosing your water care solution: quality of water, ease of use, and cost. While there are a few different combinations of products you could go with, CARE FREE™ is the water care system that effectively balances these three tenets of maintenance!

     

    How does CARE FREE™ work?

    It ensures that quality of water is prioritized by combining water conditioners, clarifiers, enzyme biofilm disruptors, metal sequestering agents and multi-oxidizing components. But it is also an easy to use weekly 4-in-1 system that does away with a host of conditioning products, by consolidating multiple products into a single two product system, CARE FREE™ and CARE FREE BOOST™. This also means that it’s affordable as a replacement for multiple stand-alone products.

    With CARE FREE™ as the foundation of your water care program, you can also add a couple enhancing products for complete peace of mind. If you’re using your hot tub infrequently, consider adding CHLOR DISCS™ to your CARE FREE™ program. This will ensure that a sanitizer is maintained when your hot tub is not in use and prevents having to recover from cloudy water when you’ve been away. If there aren’t long breaks between your hot tub soaks, you only need to add CARE FREE™ to your water once a week and a little CARE FREE BOOST™ after each hot tub use.

    And are you thinking about everyone who uses your hot tub? SOFT™ is perfect for the pleasure of your friends and family, who will find their skin moisturized and the water silky. As a dry skin solution, SOFT™ is a natural boron salt that moisturizes your skin and makes the water silky. SOFT™ is optimized for the CARE FREE™ water care system and universally compatible with all water care systems.

     

    Top Q & A: Balancing Your Water and Winterizing Maintenance

     

    How often should I drain my hot tub?

    With an average use of 2 people, soaking 3 to 4 times a week, we recommend draining your hot tub every 4 months. Decrease the interval with more bathers or more frequent use.

     

    How often do I need to add products to my hot tub water?

    Depending on the water care system you are running, follow the directions on the labels. Participating Beachcomber Hot Tub stores also offer computer water analysis, totally free. They can test a sample of your water and provide you with a simple ‘recipe’ sheet of products to add to ensure clear, clean water.

     

    How do I properly winterize my hot tub?

    Drain your hot tub as per normal and remove the plumbing assembly from the jet pump return line and heater inlet. Please consult your Owner’s Guide for details. Blow air into these lines with a Shop Vac, then suck the water out of the tub and from the pumps. Pour RV anti-freeze into the floor drain and secure the Heatshield cover onto your hot tub.

  • The Importance of Insulation in a Hot Tub’s Construction

    The Importance of Insulation in a Hot Tub’s Construction

    As the permanent chill of winter weather creeps in, and you’re considering purchasing a hot tub, the cost of operation may be an understandable concern for you. At Beachcomber, we pride ourselves in our hot tubs being 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 tub we produce.

    The key to minimizing heat loss and maximizing efficiency is hot tub insulation

    Fully insulating the interior cavity of the hot tub is something that Beachcomber Hot Tubs continues to lead the industry in. Our patented Hybrid4™ technology allowed us to move the interior equipment outside the hot tub cavity and under the step instead. This in turn enabled us to insulate all four walls of the hot tub, blocking moisture and heat from escaping the shell on all sides. Just like the walls of your home, insulation is needed to prevent the transfer of heat out of the vessel. The insulation we use is a specially formulated foam product made right in our British Columbia factory, that is blown in and expands to fill every crevice of the cavity. After it dries, it cures and hardens, making the hot tub into an integrated unit to keep the heat inside. Independent reports also support Beachcomber’s Eco-design method of this Cavity Fill insulation by stating that “For purposes of efficiency, more insulation is better.” This is something you’ll see across all Beachcomber models and 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. 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.

     

  • CARE FREE WATER CARE

    CARE FREE WATER CARE

    Keeping your hot tub water clean, balanced, and safe for everyone to enjoy is the biggest part of owning a Beachcomber.

    The reality today is that hot tub water care has never been easier or less time consuming — just taking a few minutes per week – as long as you subscribe to a treatment program that meets the needs of you and your family.

    Choosing the right water program comes down to asking yourself a few key questions:

    • How important is having an easy to follow program?
    • Is lessening the amount of ‘chemicals’ required for safe, clear, clean water, a priority?
    • Are you planning to use your hot tub frequently?
    • Is dry skin a concern?

    If the answer is yes to any or all of the above, Beachcomber Hot Tubs has the perfect system for you: CARE FREE.

    This easy to use 4-in-1 water care system does away with a host of conditioning products by integrating water clarifiers, enzyme biofilm disruptors, metal sequestering agents, and multi-oxidizing components into a single two product system: CARE FREE + CARE FREE BOOST™.

    With 4 conditioning products, all available within a single bottle of CARE FREE, you cut down on cost and the number of products you need to achieve the best results.

    What about sensitive skin?

    Beachcomber’s SOFT™ is a natural  boron salt that moisturizes your skin and makes the water silky and just pleasant to be in. SOFT™ is optimized for the CARE FREE water care system and is universally compatible with all water care systems. Add a little in, and you’ll be able to feel the effects as you soak!

    So remember, CARE FREE is the perfect solution for avid hot tub use!

    And you only need to add CARE FREE once a week and a little CARE FREE BOOST™ after each hot tub use.

  • How To De-Stress Naturally

    How To De-Stress Naturally

    Think a hot tub is an unaffordable luxury you can only enjoy on vacation? It’s far more than just a place to entertain and unwind with friends, it’s an unrivalled investment into your personal health and wellness. This is particularly true if you suffer, like so many of us do, from chronic stress in your day-to-day life.

    The physical and mental symptoms of stress manifest is all different sorts of ways. From feeling foggy, agitated, and anxious, to chronic tension and tiredness. More serious issues from untreated high stress levels include heart disease, obesity, and diabetes. Research has even shown that up to 80% of disease is stress related.

    While avoiding stress entirely might not be a realistic possibility, there are management tools that can keep your body and mind on track, especially in the midst of the busy holiday season!

    Using A Hot Tub To Reduce Daily Stress

    A Beachcomber Hot Tub® offers the perfect vehicle for stress-relief in your daily routine. Studies have shown that immersing yourself in warm water, upwards of 102 degrees F, puts your body into a deeply relaxed state. This is partly because of the reaction it creates in your nervous system, helping calm the body in the same methodology of deep meditation.

    For physical tension relief, the water supports upwards of 90% of your total body weight, reliving stress from the joints and muscles and making you feel totally weightless. The massaging FlexJets, meanwhile, reduce stress hormones and promote the natural release of endorphins, which are natural mood elevators and pain killers.

    Not only are hot tubs fun and enjoyable, but they can also help to give you a happier and more pleasant life through relaxation. If you’re interested in learning more about hot tubs, check out our Buyer’s Guide below.

  • How A Hot Tub Helps With Weight Loss

    How A Hot Tub Helps With Weight Loss

    Losing weight, and maintaining any degree of weight loss, means taking meaningful steps toward a healthier lifestyle. So how can something as relaxing as a hot tub soak really help you in your weight loss journey?

    Believe it or not, a hot tub really isn’t just for entertaining and unwinding. Countless studies have shown the benefits of a hot tub in helping owners lose weight and live healthier.

    Losing Weight With Your Hot Tub

    After you finish a work-out, stepping into warm water can elevate and enhance your healthy choices. By soaking in a Beachcomber Hot Tub, you speed up your post-exercise recovery time, improve circulation, and lower blood pressure. A hot tub also promotes clarity in your mind, helps improve your quality of sleep, and has even been shown to fight against conditions including diabetes and arthritis that can keep you from living life as your best self.

    Did you know you can even exercise in your hot tub?

    By submerging yourself in warm water, your body isn’t forced to exert as much energy when exercising. Unlike other environments, a hot tub provides a ‘soft’ space for workouts. Not only do you not have to worry about falling, as the water supports the body in every position, but the water also helps alleviate the feelings of fatigue because it’s supporting so much of the body’s weight. In addition, flexibility results due to the wider range of motion the body can achieve due to the absence of gravity on the joints. No equipment necessary. Don’t believe us? Here’s 5 Hot Tub Exercises To Try Now!

    Beyond weight loss, a hot tub, through the stimulation of blood vessels, can help tone body tissue and reduce fluid retention and swelling. The combined benefits of this has been shown to help diminish the appearance of cellulite.

    So, next time you think about having a soak in your Beachcomber Hot Tub, remember it’s doing more than just making you feel good – it’s making you healthier!

  • 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 41 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.
