• How Often Will I Really Use A Hot Tub?

    How Often Will I Really Use A Hot Tub?

    You probably know someone who once owned a hot tub that sat for years in the backyard, eventually becoming overgrown and completely non-operational. Or someone who purchased a hot tub, used it regularly for the first three months, then stopped taking care of it until it eventually fell into totally disrepair. So how can you be sure you’ll avoid a similar outcome?

    Will I Use A Hot Tub Enough To Justify The Cost?

    Make A Personal Commitment

    There’s a few ways to then look at this question, the first being something you really must consider for yourself. A hot tub should be looked at as an investment in a happier, healthier lifestyle, and not just as an entertainment or recreational item. In order to fully realize all the wonderful wellness benefits of hot tubbing, you need to use your hot tub often – make it a part of your daily routine.

    Find The Right Model

    The second consideration is the hot tub model itself. By choosing a reliable, high-quality brand, you’ll be able to focus on the benefits of the purchase, instead of becoming frustrated by continuously high-maintenance and operational costs. A hot tub is a lifetime investment, so don’t be fooled by a low sticker price, and really research product lifespan, insulation, and materials used in construction as you comparatively shop.

    Install It Close To Your Door

    Finally, place it somewhere convenient for all-year access. 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? 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.

    We invite you to make your personal wellness a priority. You will find that when you use your Beachcomber Hot Tub daily, you’ll feel better and get the most out of the benefits it provides.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Staycation Vs. Vacation

    Staycation Vs. Vacation

    Have you ever felt like you need a vacation from your vacation?

    The stress of vacation.

    If stress-relief and relaxation are your goals for your time away, often “getting away” can become a bigger headache all in and of itself. Before you set foot in your chosen locale, there’s often endless hours of planning, packing, and prepping for you and the family to be all set to go. And while on vacation, many of us are guilty of overstuffing our trips with as many activities as possible.

    It’s no wonder then, that 50% of Americans polled said they need two days to unwind after returning from their vacation, and 50% need more than two days, according to a study from the Families and Work Institute.

    Then there’s the cost: 

    According to an American Express Survey, 31% of traveler plan on spending more than $1,000 per person for a week long family holiday. That means that a family of four could be looking at spending at least $4,000 for a quick getaway.

    What’s The Lesson Here? 

    A relaxing escape does not have to mean jetting off to an exotic locale. Instead, build the perfect escape at home, and find refuge in it every single day. By investing in a long term, permanent place at home to break your routine, relax, and refresh your body, you’ll be able to enjoy the euphoria of a vacation escape, as part of your daily ritual.

    So this summer, instead of stressing over how to find the time and money to plan an extravagant vacation, spend some time playing closer to home.

    And remember, a high-quality hot tub not only adds to your daily well-being, it can also add to the value of your home, and provide the perfect centrepiece for a dream backyard makeover.

    Check out a few tips on building the perfect backyard oasis to staycate to!
