• How To Choose The Perfect Hot Tub For You

    How To Choose The Perfect Hot Tub For You

    One of the most common questions asked when we meet first-time buyers is how to narrow down the options available and really find the perfect hot tub just for them.


    Below are the three questions we recommend considering as you start out on your hot tub buying journey.

    What’s My Budget?

    This might sound like a no-brainer, but when you are assessing your budget, look not only at up-front cost, but consider the expected lifespan and operational costs. When you go super low budget, from an unknown manufacturer, you’re most likely looking at a no-frills, short term experience. Hot tubs at or below a price point of $5,000 CAD are most often so poorly insulated and constructed you’ll end up paying far more in the long run to operate them. Also factor in any added costs from installation, and accessory products that are included in the cost.

    What Size Works In My Space?

    Before you enter a showroom or start looking at models online, measure out the space where you intend to place your hot tub. Most square or rectangular models have a footprint between 6 and 8 feet. 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.

    If you are planning on using your hot tub for yourself and your spouse, a smaller 2-4 person capacity will be perfect. If you are a family of five and are looking for something you and your kids can enjoy together socially, look for a hot tub that fits more. If you have small children, finding a model with a cool-down seat is important as it allows smaller bodies to safely perch higher above the water.

    What Do You Want Most From Your Hot Tub?

    Are you looking for a place for friends? 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 at how to maximize your investment, it’s smart to weigh your expectations and prioritize which benefits are most important to you.

    If you are looking for a place for entertaining large groups, go for size and seating. If you are looking for more advanced jetting and massage seating, then look at options that have more horsepower and ergonomic molding.

    This will also help you determine whether enhancements like a built-in sound system or a lounger seat are really something you will get use of.

    First Time Buyer’s Tip

    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.

  • Why Giving Your Feet A Break Is The Key To Staying Active

    Why Giving Your Feet A Break Is The Key To Staying Active

    After a long day of being up and about, there’s nothing we want to do more than lie back and put our feet up. But why stop there? Research has shown that soaking your feet in hot water for 15 to 20 minutes can do wonders not only for your well-being and mood, but also for alleviating chronic aches and pains – both in your feet and beyond.

    Our feet are what carry us around all day after all. Yet, when it comes to caring for our bodies, they seem to be some of the last parts we consider.

    Looking specifically at how we could create a hydrotherapeutic experience that effectively targets and helps alleviate pain points in this often over-looked part of our bodies, the team at Beachcomber embarked on delivering a massage configuration that would give users all the benefits of a professional foot massage, while enjoying the comforts of being at home.

    Beachcomber Hot Tubs’ Reflex Foot Massage Jets

    Providing intense jetting power to the feet, the Reflex Foot Massage (RFM) fixture fits into our spacious footwell. The upward jetting ensures that you are getting full relief to the one area you really may need it the most.

    As Reflexology shows, your entire body is represented by and connected to your feet, meaning that caring for that part of your body can improve the health and wellness of all of your limbs and organs. While improved mood and increased relaxation are some of the benefits of our Reflex Foot Massage jets, listed below are a few more (you might not expect)!

    Improved Circulation
    Although we use our feet to get around all-day long, the muscles in them don’t actually get too much of a workout. This prevents adequate blood flow in your feet, causing pain and stiffness. Adding a 10-20 minute massage session to your daily hot tub soak will greatly improve blood circulation in your feet, as well as cut down on the foot pain experienced in everyday life.

    Prevents Foot and Ankle Injuries
    By improving the blood circulation in your foot, RFM jets help with the recovery and strengthening of the muscles in your feet. Adding foot and ankle strengthening exercises and stretching can further prevent injuries and speed up recovery time.

    Lowers Blood Pressure
    High blood pressure has become very common among people in our high stress society. A 10-minute foot massage session three times a week can significantly reduce the stress inflicted upon your body by the effects of high blood pressure and anxiety.

    Helps Relieve Pain from Flat Feet
    People with collapsed arches or flat feet often experience pain after physical activity because of inflammation and ligament damage. Regular deep massages from our RFM jets can help ease or even cure these pains.
