• 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

     

  • End of Daylight Savings: Preparing for Winter!

    End of Daylight Savings: Preparing for Winter!

    When the clocks roll back this Sunday, we’ll gain an hour of sleep. While this may seem like a bonus, parents can attest to the fact that helping children to adjust to the change can be tricky. With kids who have difficulty adjusting to changes in routine, the best method may be to start to prepare in the week leading up to the time change, by pushing bedtimes, wake times, and nap times back 10-15 minutes at a time every few days. Beyond that, there are some steps you can take as a family that will ease everybody into the darker (cozier!) months of winter.

    Try these tips to beat daylight savings fatigue:

     

    Fight the Light

    For the initial adjustment period, consider investing in blackout curtains to block the extra light in the mornings. Make sure the window coverings in your child’s room are drawn tight, as children can be particularly sensitive to light and have a hard time resting through the extra hour of light.

     

    Tire Them Out

    This is where the struggle of adjustment can be fun! Because bedtime will feel like it’s an hour too late, your family’s evening routine might be more difficult. If you wear your kids out with plenty of physical activity in the late afternoon following Daylight Savings, they’ll be less resistant to bedtime and quicker to fall asleep when it rolls around. With temperatures cooling down and the sun setting earlier, outdoor playtime may be harder to come by. But indoor versions can be just as fun and can involve the whole family more than when the kids are outside on their own. Playing tag in the basement before dinner time for example, can ensure some extra energy exertion, as can trying an instructional yoga video together in the living room.

     

    Soak it Away

    The absolute best segue from your indoor yoga attempts, is a soak in your Beachcomber! Whether you choose to do this after physical activity, as a way to calm your muscles, or right before bedtime as a way to relax before sleep, the calming effect of hydrotherapy can help you achieve a deeper and more restful sleep. The caveat with using physical activity to wear out your kids is making sure that you cap it off at least 30 minutes before bedtime, as your child’s mind and body will be in active mode before bed otherwise. The calming warmth of swirling hot tub water can make it easier for that active mode to fade. And everyone will benefit from sharing family time in your Beachcomber!

     

  • 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 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.

  • Hot Tub Cover Lifters: What To Know

    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.

    At Beachcomber, we offer a few options to satisfy varying needs and price points in a hot tub cover lifters:
