• Enjoying a Hot Tub at Night

    Enjoying a Hot Tub at Night

    A Beachcomber Hot Tub is not only built for year-round relaxation, it’s built to be enjoyed at all hours of the day and night! There’s no better place to look up and take in the magic of the night sky after a long day than inside your hot tub, which is why we have designed ambient LED lighting to ensure your safety and enhance the atmosphere as you soak after-hours.

    Hot Tub Lighting Packages by Beachcomber

    Exterior Lighting

    Added exterior hot tub lighting includes our Star Trail and Guiding Light packages. Star Trail lighting, a feature first introduced in our 2017 Anniversary Edition models, lines the exterior corners of the hot tub and is inspired by the natural motion and beauty of starlight. Our Guiding light feature illuminates the steps leading up to our Hybird4 models to add a layer of safety and ease for exiting and entering your hot tub. Both of these features are available upgrades on most Beachcomber purchases.

    Enhanced Interior Lighting

    While all models come standard with an incredible LED interior lighting package, accent interior upgrade features include our Eclipse and Crescent Moon lighting packages. Melded seamlessly into the interior acrylic, both of these options not only add illumination to the handgrips to help make evening soaks easier to navigate, but also provide a calming, ambient soft glow from your hot tub as you lie back and relax.

    Everlite Moodlighting

    Lighting can make or break any situation, but did you realize there’s actually a science behind the effects of lighting on our health? It’s called chromotherapy, and measures the impact of colours in keeping our bodies and minds adjusted and balanced. The therapeutic benefits of Beachcomber Hot Tubs extend to this practice, with our Everlite Moodlighting designed with these healing principles specifically in mind. Turn your hot tub water into any colour of the rainbow, and create the perfect mood to enjoy some tranquility and calm before bed.

  • Ways To Use Your Hot Tub

    Ways To Use Your Hot Tub

    One of the most common first questions we hear from prospective hot tub buyers is “how often will I really use it?” You probably know someone who once owned a hot tub that sat non-operational, overgrown with foliage, for years in the backyard. 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?

    Getting The Most Use From Your Hot Tub

    There’s a few ways to then look at this question, the first being something you really must consider for yourself. Hot tubs are designed for daily use, so it’s up to you to make this a part of your routine. By adding even a 15-minute soak first thing in the morning or before bed, you’ll start wondering how you ever lived without one. Also, think about more than just one way you can use your hot tub. Hot tubs are designed to help you de-stress and relax, as well as provide the perfect place to socialize or enjoy quality time with your spouse in the comfort for your own backyard. To make the most out of it, keep in mind all the different ways you can utilize it year-round.

    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.

    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.

  • What Are My Hot Tub Water Care Options?

    What Are My Hot Tub Water Care Options?

    As you’re debating investing in a hot tub, one thing that undoubtedly keeps coming up is the maintenance and safety requirements. Choosing the right Water Care system is something that can impact the enjoyment and use you and your family get out of the purchase. Before you select a program, be sure you look at the full list of available options and weigh the pros and cons to ensure your selection is the one that makes the most sense.

    Here’s a quick rundown on the water treatment options for your Beachcomber Hot Tub:

     

    CARE FREE WATER CARE™

    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. CARE FREE is perfect for the regular hot tub user who appreciates the efficiency of blending all the ingredients you need into one great product and loves hot tubing in crystal clear, healthy water!

    The Care Free System is available for over 50% Off with our Protection Bundle Upgrade for the month of July only! Full details here.

    CHLOR TREATMENT

    CHLOR DISCS™ are stabilized slow dissolving chlorine sanitizer discs that control bacteria and algae in hot tub water. CHLOR DISCS™ are perfectly suited to fit into the Beachcomber floating disc dispenser. CHLOR BLAST™ is a stabilized granular chlorine based sanitizer and oxidizer that controls the growth of bacteria and algae in hot tub waters and is ideal for regular oxidizing. CHLOR treatment is perfect for the hot tub user who appreciates good old fashioned chlorine to get the job done.

    BROMO TREATMENT

    BROMO DISCS™ are slow dissolving bromine sanitizer discs that create a bromine residual to control bacteria and algae in hot tub waters. BROMO DISCS™ are perfectly suited to fit into the Beachcomber floating disc dispenser.  BROMO BLAST™ is a practical soluble one-step non-stabilized bromine sanitizer and oxidizer treatment that controls bacteria and algae in hot tub waters. BROMO treatment is a system that is perfect for the hot tub user who admittedly doesn’t test and balance their water as often as they should and appreciates a more forgiving program.

     

    While some companies promote the use of salt water in hot tubs, this practice is something that we at Beachcomber strongly advise against. Salt is corrosive to the pump and seals and will decrease the lifespan of some of the spa components.

    Hot tub technology has also recently evolved to also include UVC supplemental filtration systems. ClearTech UVC is a system we produce and can add-on to hot tub purchases in the manufacturing stage as a natural water care solution for removing harmful bacteria, without producing any chemical by-products in the water, through the use of the sun’s UV rays in conditioning the water.

    Be sure to research the water care programs offered and discussed with your local dealership or one of our team members online. Find the most effective program for your needs and you’ll get the best usage from your hot tub.

  • Advantages of Buying a Hot Tub In Summer

    Advantages of Buying a Hot Tub In Summer

    The sweltering summer sun doesn’t exactly make you think of jumping in a hot tub during a July or August afternoon, but with a few small adjustments, a hot tub can actually be a great play to lie back and relax this summer!

    Not only is the summertime a good time to enjoy a hot tub, it’s also one of the best times to shop for the perfect model if a hot tub is an investment you are seriously thinking about making. Why? Below are just a few of the reasons why now is the perfect time to go from hot tub dreamer to hot tub owner.

    Why Buy A Hot Tub in Summer

    Shop Now, Enjoy This Fall!

    The hot tubs you see on the showroom floor or online as you comparatively search, are not necessarily the exact hot tub you will be bringing home. While the model numbers dictate the size, interior seating, and water ports for jetting, a number of features and finishes will be customized to your preferences once you select your hot tub. At Beachcomber Hot Tubs, our models are custom-built to order. That means your wait time will normally be 6-8 weeks. By purchasing in summer, your hot tub will be ready to install in the early fall, right when the weather starts to cool and you’ll want to get even more use out of it.

    Easy Installation

    The dry, summer and early fall weather make a huge difference in the simplicity of hot tub installation. Not only will it be easier for you to prepare the space in dryer weather when the sun is out much later, but without snow, rain, and ice, our team will be able to place and start-it-up with less time and without risking added costs in clearing the pathway.

    Great Upgrade Options

    Right now, Beachcomber Hot Tubs is offering over 50% off on our Protection Bundle Upgrade, featuring our Care Free Water Care System, Safety Rail, GFCI Breaker, and Premium 5-Year Protection Guarantee.

    And remember you can always decide on a hot tub now and pay later, thanks to our Hot Tub Financing program that puts you in control of your purchase with flexible, super low bi-weekly payments options.

  • Getting Your Backyard Summer Ready

    Getting Your Backyard Summer Ready

    The summer season is the time of the year we cherish most. It’s when the days are longer, the family has more time to spend together, and when there’s no better place to be than outside! With the summer heat now in full swing, it’s the perfect time to make a few quick refreshes to your outdoor living spaces. Below are a few quick tips to get you started.

    Create the Perfect Summer Backyard

    Add in Colour

    There’s a freshness to the summer season that invites a strong use of bold, fresh colours to brighten up any space in the home. Nowhere can this be better used than in your outdoor living spaces. Colourful flowers and plants can help bring in a seasonal glow, with patterned pots and containers adding to the lightness of the mood. Another inexpensive solution is investing in brightly hued pillows and throws against your neutral furniture. This gives you flexibility throughout the year, and let’s you play with your design from season to season without breaking the bank.

    Prep The BBQ for Heavy Use

    Has your backyard grill been hibernating this winter? Before you get it out for a big summer BBQ, make sure you really wipe it down and give it a test run. Add BBQ storage for your grilling tools and a small table for prep work to create your own DIY outdoor kitchen, saving you multiple trips back and forth inside.

    Illuminate & Invite Conversation

    Lighting not only lends warmth and sophistication to an outdoor space, it also extends the time you have to enjoy it! Set up outdoor lanterns and string up bistro lights over your dining and living spaces to keep the party going after the sun sets. Another inexpensive solution is all-weather outdoor patio torches, adding a more natural illumination as you unwind in your own private oasis.

    Invest into a Backyard Centrepiece

    Every backyard needs something special to anchor the space. Think about how much room you have to play with and what would best satisfy the needs of you and your family to maximize the use you have of outdoor living. It might be a large dining room table and sectional couch if you plan on entertaining, a fire pit as a way to enjoy the space in more intimate surroundings, or if you are really looking for a showstopper for all year-round, an outdoor hot tub or spa will make your outdoor living room the only room you want to be in. While a hot tub might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of summer, now is the perfect time to start shopping, with easier installation and great deals on showroom floors before the fall models are unveiled.

Designed for easy installation by a qualified electrician, you have the choice of a 40, 50, or 60 amp units to facilitate your installation.

  • How Will I Be Using My Hot Tub?

    How Will I Be Using My Hot Tub?

    A hot tub isn’t a one-size-fits-all product. Hot tubs offer many different functions, and different models are tailored to different needs. Are you looking for a place for friends? For you and your spouse? Or is it deep-tissue hydrotherapy you’re after? There’s plenty of models that offer all of these benefits, but when you’re looking to maximize your investment based on the budget you want to spend, it’s best to weigh your expectations and prioritize which benefits are the most important to you.

    Choosing the Right Hot Tub

    Factor 1: Size & Seating

    If you are looking for a place for entertaining large groups, go for size and seating. When you’re looking at hot tubs, remember that price doesn’t necessarily equal number of seats. We have large and small hot tubs across our 700, 500, and 300 series, so a smaller budget doesn’t mean you won’t be able to afford a larger tub. Our hot tubs come in sizes that accommodate anywhere from 2 to 8 people, with the average size accommodating between 5 and 6 adults.

    Factor 2: Advanced Jetting

    If you are looking for more advanced jetting and hydro-massage, then look at options that have more horsepower and ergonomic molding. If hydrotherapy is your number one priority, don’t just look at the quantity of jets, really research placement, quality, and the ability to customize. Ensuring the jets inside the model you are selecting offer adequate horsepower to balance propulsion and airflow and provide deep tissue results is critical before you make your purchase.

    Factor 3: Enhanced Features

    When you’re comparing your budget 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 with your “must” amenities. This will also help you determine whether features like a lounger seat or built-in sound system are really something you will get use of.

  • How To Upgrade Your Hot Tub

    How To Upgrade Your Hot Tub

    With all the hot tub models available on the market, selecting the right option takes time, thought, and a lot of back-and-forth as you weigh what’s available, and what’s really right for you. What you might not realize is that the hot tubs you see in the showroom floor don’t always tell the full story.

    At Beachcomber Hot Tubs, we offer a line-up of 20 models, from our executive SLB range to our more affordable 300 series hot tubs. But that doesn’t mean you just have 20 options to choose from though. Just like when you enter a car dealership, once you decide on the right model, it’s time to tailor-make your hot tub so that it’s perfect for you!

    Some of these choices are easier than others. Choosing the acrylic colour you like and the hot tub cabinetry for instance. But some other options will cost you extra, which means it’s time to weigh the cost of the investment.

    How To Choose Upgrades For Your Hot Tub

    Below are a few of our most popular add-on features. Think about whether they’re the right fit for you!

    Wireless Surround Sound

    Soaking in a hot tub can be an incredibly therapeutic sensory experience. It can also be the perfect place to unwind and enjoy time with family and friends. Nothing enhances either of these experiences like the perfect soundtrack or calming ambient sounds to soothe and relax to.

    Pros: A great way to wirelessly connect music directly into your hot tub, with incredible sound quality that will greatly add to your enjoyment.

    Cons: if you live in a densely populated area with concern for noise and disturbing your neighbours, you might get less use than you would hope for.

    Ambient LED Lighting

    While all of our hot tub models come standard with interior and control panel LED lighting, we also offer a number of enhanced lighting packages for both the inside and outside of your hot tub model to add some ambient magic and safety to your nighttime soaks.

    Pros: Lighting features not only provide safety and ease of use for nighttime soaking, they also add natural beauty to your backyard. All of our lighting is LED equipped, so there will be minimal impact on your maintenance costs. 

    Cons: There are a lot of lighting packages to choose from, so be selective as you search to see which options you believe will provide the most benefits. If you don’t plan on using your hot tub at night often, you might want to consider investing in other add-on features instead.

    Water Features

    What you might be thinking…isn’t a hot tub itself a water feature? While you’re not wrong, many models, in addition to jetting, offer fountain and waterfall features.

    Pros: These features not only offer a real crowd-pleaser, they also add utility. Adding in a cascading waterfall feature in your hot tub provides soothing sounds, as well as an added neck massage as you lack back.

    Cons: If you are planning on using your hot tub as a place for group gatherings exclusively, adding in a tranquil water feature for relaxation might not be a priority.

    What if you want it all? You can have it with a Beachcomber!

  • DO I HAVE ENOUGH SPACE FOR A HOT TUB?

    DO I HAVE ENOUGH SPACE FOR A HOT TUB?

    With space becoming tighter in many urban homes, one of the first concerns many prospective buyers face is whether they really have the space for a hot tub. As you comparatively shop, you’ll start to find that most outdoor hot tubs are square or rectangular (the 320 is the only model we offer in a circular shape) and have a footprint between 6 and 8 feet.

    Hot Tub Space Requirements:

    Before you enter into a showroom or start looking at models online, measure out the space where you intend to place your hot tub. Keep in mind, you will need an added space of 1 to 2 feet around at least two-sides of the hot tub to allow for maintenance. You will also need to ensure you have enough space for people to enter and exit the hot tub and space for your hot tub cover when not in use.

    Placement:

    Then it comes down to placement. Do you have a spot at the far end of your backyard with an idyllic view you think would be the perfect spot for your hot tub? Think again. 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? Keep in mind your hot tub will also require an electrical hook-up as you think of spots to place it.

    Beachcomber Tip:

    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, such as the Beachcomber Hot Tubs Hush Pump.

    Structural Support:

    No matter where you are planning on putting your hot tub, it will need the proper structural support. An empty hot tub is already a heavy object. Add in 400 gallons or so of water, your hot tub can weigh over 5,000 pounds. No matter where you choose to install your hot tub, a solid foundation such as a concrete pad will be necessary.

    Sinking A Hot Tub Into A Deck:

    If you plan on sinking or installing on a deck, joist and beams need to be sized to support the heavy load. We highly recommend consulting a structural engineer in the design plan if the deck is elevated to ensure it meets any necessary municipal codes and building standards.

    Remember to follow the checklist above and feel free to contact a member of the Beachcomber Hot Tubs team should you have any questions about where the place your hot tub.
