With backyard season almost in full-swing, it’s time to start thinking about how to invest into your own outdoor living space. A hot tub is big investment, absolutely. It’s something you’ve probably thought about, but talked yourself out of it because of the price and assumed maintenance requirements.

    Why should you be looking at the decision to own a hot tub differently this year?

    Owning A Beachcomber Hot Tub

    First off, owning a hot tub has never been so simple. With just a few minutes a week of water maintenance, and an easy to follow drain-and-fill program every few months, you’ll be able to enjoy the therapeutic and social benefits of hot tubbing every single night.

    Don’t pay for 6 months

    Secondly, for this week only, you can get into a Beachcomber today, without paying a thing for the first 6 months, with zero added interest! This way you can spend more time saving up for the investment, while also enjoying the benefits of your new hot tub.

    Flexible payments with hot tub financing

    Once the 6 month period is over, we also 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.

    Make the right lifetime decision

    Remember, a hot tub is not only a big upfront investment, it’s also a lifetime investment. You are not just looking for a hot tub that is going to give your homelife a short-term boost, but one that is going to make a lasting impact for years to come. That means looking at the quality of the product more than the sticker price. Just think about it this way: if a hot tub potentially costs $4,000 and only lasts four years, that would be like spending $1,000 on that hot tub per year. If you purchase a hot tub that costs $7,500 and lasts twenty years, your usage cost would really be only $375. Even without factoring in the added operational costs of a cheaper construction, you’re still getting far less bang for your buck when you choose a budget-model and bargain retailer. This return on investment, and more importantly, years of added enjoyment for you and your family, is one of the many reasons why we believe that purchasing high-quality hot tubs, like a Beachcomber Hot Tub, will help you save money in the long run and give you a product that lasts. Many of our owners have had their Beachcombers for over 25 years, and continue enjoying regular usage from their hot tubs!

  • How to Shade Your Hot Tub

    How to Shade Your Hot Tub

    As the weather warms up, kicking back in your Beachcomber can feel like you’re on a mini summer getaway in your own backyard. But regardless of whether your lounging is done on a beach in the south of France or soaking in hot tub bubbles, having a shady reprieve from the sun’s rays is always a good idea.

    Here are 3 ways you can create shade over your hot tub if you don’t have the foliage of a nearby tree to rely upon:



    We’ll start with the most permanent option. Building a gazebo around your hot tub is certainly an investment of time and money, but it will add real estate value to your home. You can match the wood to the colour of your Beachcomber’s natural cabinet skirting, for cohesive backyard décor and a harmonious design. Of course, the permanence of the gazebo option can also be its downside, as the roof can’t be removed on those occasions when you do want full sun.


    Tent Canopy

    The tent option can be a more flexible alternative to the gazebo, as it can be easily dismantled when need be. A structure that has a covered top but open sides will allow for maximum light while providing some necessary UV ray protection. You can also drape this type of tent structure; perhaps with rich fabric for added luxury or your next Arabian Nights themed party.


    Side Umbrella

    There are many variations available with this option, as you can customize the colour, fabric texture, and size of your umbrella to suit your backyard décor, layout and hot tub size. Just make sure that you choose an umbrella with a swivel rod so you can adjust it to your desired angle, according to the sun’s height in the sky.


    And if you do have the option to install your hot tub in the naturally shadier corners of your yard, or tucked amid a beautiful botanical foliage, consider the additional maintenance you may encounter. Falling leaves or flower blossoms can clog up your filter and lead to algae growth or an eventual chemical imbalance in your water. Check out our tips on keeping your hot tub water clean, and stock up on the ClearTech UVC Water Care System to have everything you need on hand for a clean and shady soak!

    If your hot tub is in direct sun, a great way to protect your hot tub cover from those harmful UV rays and prevent fading is regular use of Beachcomber COVER CARE. This concentrated, EcoLogo Certified, liquid revitalizer and UV protectant is ideal for all types of hot tub covers, as well as vinyl products around the home, including patio furniture and vinyl on vehicles. COVER CARE is available online or through your local Beachcomber professional.

  • Just How Much Media Are We Consuming?

    Just How Much Media Are We Consuming?

    It should come as no surprise that our daily technology consumption is on the rise. But just how drastic is the spike?

    According to CNN, teens now spend up to nine hours a day on social platforms, with 60% of this happening on their mobile devices. And it’s not just teens who are in need of a severe digital detox, with U.S. adults spending 10 hours and 40 minutes on average consuming media.

    Currently, total time spent on social media beats time spent eating and drinking, socializing, and grooming.

    As parents, there’s never been a more important time than today to find ways to spend time with your children, away from the screens.


    Here are a few ways to keep the family connected:


    Get Outside & Go Airplane Mode.

    While the living room and kitchen might be the places families find themselves gathering most often, these settings are also full of distractions. Watching television together while surfing the internet on your phones might not be the best quality time spent. Instead, try to plan regular outdoor adventures that require everyone to not only get together, but get off their phones and find fun in nature. Simply getting fresh air outside has been shown to have big positive effects on our health and well-being, so don’t let a colder, wet climate stop you from getting back to the great outdoors. Take turns planning out what activity to try next.


    Eat At The Table, Not On The Couch

    In a survey, US teens were asked when they were most likely to talk with their parents: dinner was their top answer. Stacks of studies link regular family dinners with lowering high risk teenage behaviours parents often fear, such as experimenting with drugs and alcohol. This has also been shown to improve overall parent-child relationships and reduce the stress your kids might be feeling.


    Create A Daily Family Ritual That’s Rewarding For Everyone 

    So how we can put the screen down, and keep the conversation going with the people right in front of us? Hot tubs are a fantastic place where family and friends of any age can find enjoyment and bonding. Just 10 to 15 minutes together in your Beachcomber Hot Tub every night can provide relaxation, stress relief, and a special place to connect and really discuss what’s important to the people you love the most. Enjoying time together in a hot tub is a low-stress activity that requires minimal planning for everyone.

  • How To Turn Your Backyard Into An Everyday Vacation Spot

    How To Turn Your Backyard Into An Everyday Vacation Spot

    Warm weather, a change of scenery, and a few days to relax – there’s a reason we wait all year for a vacation! But with so much build up, it’s often hard for family vacations to live up to all the hype.

    According to a 2013 American Express Survey, the average vacation for a family of four in the United States costs $4,580! Skip ahead to 2017, and the cost is only going up.

    That’s a ton of money to spend, and while vacations are an important way to bring your family closer together, they only last for a short period of time before you settle back into your daily routine. That’s why a growing number of people are taking steps to make their own backyards as exciting and luxurious as any tropical vacation destination. Creating a backyard oasis featuring a hot tub can create enjoyment for the whole family for years and years.

    Here’s Why You Might Want To Consider Investing In A Hot Tub Instead: 


    Avoid The Stress Of Travel

    Escalating costs due to hidden fees, duties and taxes more often than not result in our travel budgets going out the window, no matter how well thought out your trip might be. The stress of travelling with children and with connecting flights can take the fun out of any vacation, even once you’ve arrived. By installing a hot tub and dressing up your backyard, you’ll be able to get the benefits of relaxation you anticipate at your destination, without having to go anyway at all!

    77% of hot tub owners see their hot tub as one of the few places they are able to de-stress.

    Year-Round Enjoyment

    Spending more quality time with your family at home is proven to enhance your physical and mental well-being and give you the opportunity to re-connect with your loved ones. Adding a hot tub to your backyard is the kind of investment that will provide this enjoyment and bonding year-round, instead of just for a week or two.When planning out your backyard oasis, no matter the size, try to carve out different activity zones within the space so that you are able to lounge, dine, and enjoy the natural surroundings as much as possible.


    Investing Rather Than Spending

    Installing a hot tub is one home improvement that can pay for itself. Not only does it help you reconnect as a family, but it also adds value to your home. Building out more outdoor spaces to entertain and connect can also add to your home’s market value, including an outdoor kitchen space and covered gazebos that you can use as outdoor living rooms.

    Other amenities that can layer on the ambiance include fountains, fire pits, and durable all season furnishings.



    Voila! Your next destination is only a few steps outside your back-door!

  • Romantic Date Ideas for your Hot Tub

    Romantic Date Ideas for your Hot Tub

    Finding quality alone time to spend with your significant other can sometimes feel impossible. Owning a hot tub can help relieve some of the stress that comes with carving time to relax together. It’s like having a spa right in your own home!

    Creative Hot Tub Date Ideas

         1. Set the mood with some candles.

    • Candles can serve a couple of purposes. First, they help set the mood by creating a soothing low level of light. Second, the fragrance they produce helps stimulate the “happiness” receptors in the brain. Fragrances can also help you shed stress and relax.

         2. Plan your playlist

    • Music is a critical part of putting together the perfect night for you and your partner. Be sure you have a good idea of what music your partner enjoys before putting together any playlist.

         3. Plan some drinks and light snacks

    • Adding some cocktails, wine and light finger food to your date is a great way to take your date to the next level. Be sure to watch the crumbs as these will end up in your tub and create an ugly mess.

         4. Lower the temperature.

    • Having the temperature in your hot tub around 37 degrees Celsius is a good way to allow your hot tub date to last. If the temperature of your water is too hot, you’ll overheat quickly and it will cut your date night short.

         5. Bring the conversation

    • Know if your partner is someone who relaxes by talking, or if they prefer to unwind by enjoying the peace and quiet.

    With these simple tips, you can put together an amazing date night that you and your partner will enjoy!

  • Tips for Celebrating Valentine’s Day at Home

    Tips for Celebrating Valentine’s Day at Home

    Often the best gifts are the simplest. Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to spend some romantic moments with your loved one.

    Here are some great idea for celebrating your love in the comfort of your own home:

    Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

    Make your plans early

    • Make arrangements to have everything ready to go for you and your partner. Be sure you have dinner, drinks, babysitter planned out well in advance. Spontaneity isn’t romantic when it doesn’t work out.

    Cook dinner yourselves

    • Sharing in the cooking process is an amazing way to start a romantic night. To increase the efficiency of cooking together, think about dividing up the tasks for dinner. This will help the preparation go faster, as well as keep you from stepping on your partners toes.

    Spend the night as a couple

    • Don’t invite friends over! Valentine’s Day is meant to be spent enjoying your partners company. You can invite friends over any other day of the year. Save Valentine’s Day for your partner.

    Put your phone away

    • For one night, stow your phone away for the night. Be present with your partner. Although you’ll go through some minor withdrawal, not having your phone around the dinner table or bedroom will serve you well in the end.
