    Hot Tub Cover Lifters: What To Know

    Outside of the hot tub itself, there’s no more important element to your Beachcomber than the cover. A hot tub cover not only keeps your hot tub protected, it keeps your water clean and traps in heat to maintain the energy efficiency.

    Our HEATSHIELD™ hot tub covers have been designed with up to 45% more insulating power than standard covers, and include our vacuum-seal construction to ensure that the heat inside your hot tub stays inside. This way you can keep costs down in winter as you enjoy your daily soaks in your Beachcomber’s massaging waters.

    If you have any issues with your back, or are planning on enjoying solo soaks often, one of the best investments you can make into your hot tub is a cover removal system that takes the work out of getting in and out of your hot tub.

  • 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.

  • How Hot Tubs Help Chronic Pain

    How Hot Tubs Help Chronic Pain

    A hot tub is more than just hot water. It’s scientifically proven to improve your physical well-being. There are three factors at work: heat, massage, and buoyancy. Together, they create an unparalleled therapeutic experience for your whole body, that has proven extremely beneficial for chronic pain sufferers.

    Hydrotherapy Benefits for Chronic Pain

    Heat

    Warm hot tub water raises your body’s temperature, causing blood vessels to dilate and increasing your circulation. What does that mean for pain sufferers? You might not realize it, but heat therapy helps your boy’s cells eliminate damaging wastes, decreases inflammation, and promotes the release of endorphins.

    Buoyancy

    You might feel a little bit lighter as you soak in a hot tub, but did you know that the water actually reduces your body’s weight by 85% – 90% relieving pressure on your joints, ligaments, and muscles. By reducing stress on your body, buoyancy reduces stiffness and promotes easier, pain-free movement and an improved range of motion. This effect is particularly useful in treating arthritis and fibromyalgia.

    Massage

    Hot tub jets deliver streams of water to various parts of your body. Together, they target and relax tight muscles. The effects of consistent use include stronger flexibility, increased circulation, enhanced digestive processes, and a strengthening of your immune system.

     

     

    Remember, consistency is key!  Try for a 20 minute soak every night to maintain the health benefits of your hot tub. Increase the duration of your standard soaking time after activities that exert the muscles, such as a strenuous workout or long periods of driving. And if you’re short on time, shorten the duration of your soak (maybe to 10-15 minutes), but make it a priority to soak regularly.

  • 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 Tub Health: Achieving Mental Clarity

    Hot Tub Health: Achieving Mental Clarity

    A hot tub is more than just a place for entertainment. For years now, research has shown that frequent hot tub use is a critical building block in sustaining a healthy, happy lifestyle. One of the lesser known benefits of hot tubbing is the impacts on your mental health and clarity – and all it takes is 15 minutes a day!

    Mental Clarity In A Hot Tub

    While stress is unavoidable, what many of us don’t realize is it also inhibits circulations and leads to heightened blood pressure. When we are overly stressed, our hearts work harder and digestion slows down. Nearly every process in the body is negatively affected. Research has even shown that up to 80% of disease is stress related.

    The jets in a Beachcomber Hot Tub are specifically designed to pinpoint major pressure points throughout the body to better stimulate the flow of blood and speed of the body’s processes. This boost in circulation will help your mind and body enter into a state of calmness, and has been clinically shown to reduce anxiety and stress.

    With heat and massage working together, you’ll also create a release of toxins in your body, keeping you feeling healthier and happier than ever. Here are a few of the other mental health benefits of hot tubbing:

    Enhanced sleep:

    Increasing your body temperature from soaking in a hot tub at night, before bed, will help you fall asleep faster.

    Natural headache relief:

    If you suffer from tension headaches, a hot tub can help! Get in your hot tub, relax, perform some deep breathing, and let the hydro-therapeutic action of the hot tub relax the muscles that are creating the tension in your head.

    Provide mental reprieve from physical symptoms

    Whether your ailment is standard post-workout muscle soreness or advanced arthritis, physical pain understandably takes a toll on mental energy. While your body is healing inside the bubbling water of your hot tub, your mind will be freed from thoughts of pain. Use this opportunity to practice letting go of other mentally draining thoughts, such as work worries or routine responsibilities, and just focus on indulging in the solitude of your backyard oasis.

     

    Find your sense of inner peace and live healthier and happier than ever before every single day with a Beachcomber Hot Tub at home!

  • 3 Ways To Naturally Improve Sleep

    3 Ways To Naturally Improve Sleep

    We always want to seize the day, but are you doing enough to really seize the night? If you aren’t, you shouldn’t feel alone. According to the National Sleep Foundation, approximately 132 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders like insomnia more than one night a week. So what are a few of the steps you can take to ensure a good night’s rest? With over 90 known sleep disorders today, we need all the help we can get!

    Natural Solutions For A Better Sleep

    Daily Exercise

    Physical activity has been shown to be very beneficial to your sleep. Exercise increases the quality and duration of sleep by boosting the production of serotonin in the brain and decreasing levels of cortisol, better known as the stress hormone. However, it is important to maintain a moderate-intensity exercise and not overdo it.

    Get On A Schedule

    Most people find that one of the best ways to build out a smooth sleep cycle is by following a schedule. The more consistent you are with your bed and wake-up times, the easier it will be for your body to follow. Your body has it’s own regulatory cycle, so use the most of it.

    Using A Beachcomber Hot Tub

    At night, our body temperatures naturally drop, which signals the production of melatonin, better known as the sleeping hormone. Soaking in a hot tub raises your body temperature, and exiting will more rapidly cool it down, triggering a faster production of melatonin, better preparing your body for sleep. This sensation improves your circulation and helps your body release endorphins that allow you to relax and fall asleep not only faster but also sleep through the night soundly.

     

     

    So, next time you want to watch late-night television, think about the benefits of clearing your body and mind in a Beachcomber Hot Tub before bed instead. Don’t just look at a Beachcomber Hot Tub as an investment into a good time, look at it as an investment into good health, and use it every single day as part of your routine to achieve the best results.

It’s important to find a water care system that is manageable and meets your safety standards. Care Free offers the gold standard!   

    Lift ‘N Store 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 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.

    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.

    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. We also believe in the integrity and durability of our hot tubs, which is why we offer all customers a standard protection guarantee. For this month only, however, we are offering you a 5-year extended premium guarantee that covers all major components of your hot tub for less than half the cost.

  • Hot Tub Meditation Guide

    Hot Tub Meditation Guide

    Sometimes, taking just a little time out for ourselves can make a huge impact on the rest of the day. Meditation has long been shown to cleanse and nourish from within. It can help you feel a sense of calm and clarity, and tackle whatever the day brings more effectively.

    Combining it with a soak in your Beachcomber Hot Tub® can do wonders for your body and mind.

    Here’s a few tips to get you started in your hot tub meditation practice:

    Create the Perfect Environment

    Start by ensuring your hot tub is set to a comfortable temperature and try to choose a time when you know it will be quieter, with less distractions, in your outdoor space. While you don’t have to turn off the jets, you might find it easier to start with quieter surroundings.

    Other helpful tips include adding SOFT to your hot tub, which is a water enhancer that is amazing for moisturizing skin and improving the quality of your hot tub water, and investing in a bottle of JUDY Scentsations, offering soothing aromatherapy for your water, without affecting the water pH balance.

    Get Comfortable & Relax!

    To get into the right mindset, start by taking deep breathes, and letting go of your thoughts, and distractions. Don’t think of one thing, try to think of nothing, and let yourself become enveloped by the soft, therapeutic waters. If you are just starting out, we recommend trying 5 – 8 minutes of meditation. You might have a harder time getting into it at first, but like the age old saying, practice makes perfect. Once you feel comfortable in your ability to let go of your surroundings, try to stay in it a bit longer. Moving up to 15 minutes a day has been shown to have the biggest pay-offs in your overall mental clarity.

    You’ll notice that you feel peaceful and satisfied in no time! Learn more about the incredible therapies offered by your Beachcomber Hot Tub® by downloading our eBook below.
