• Building A Path To Your Hot Tub

    Building A Path To Your Hot Tub

    A hot tub is a must-have for any homeowner looking to create an oasis for relaxing and entertaining right in the comfort of their own backyard.

    Something we always stress to new buyers is the importance of placement when it comes to installing their outdoor hot tub. A hot tub is meant to be enjoyed daily, and to get the most use out of it 365 days a year, it needs to installed in a location that is convenient to access, and close to a doorway into the home.

    Creating a Pathway To Your Hot Tub

    Creating a pathway that leads from your house to the hot tub is not only critical for the safety and use of your spa at any time during the day or evening, it’s also important for ensuring the health of the water.

    Drudging through muddy grass or snow before entering into your hot tub will dirty the water faster, and increase the amount of time you spend on maintenance. That’s why we recommend including materials like brick, concrete or paving stones, as quick, clean solutions for connecting your home to your spa.

    And don’t just think about day time use! Add illuminating lighting to your steps and walkways to ensure easy access in the evening and night. We recommend using a mix of lighting sources, with solar-powered and low voltage lights intermixed with the utility focused path lighting, to create ambience and interest to the surrounding landscape as you highlight pathways.

    If you ever have any questions about hot tub installation or backyard design tips, please drop by your closest Beachcomber location and speak with one of our Hot Tub Experts.

  • 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.

    Take advantage of easy living with our 50% off Protection Bundle Sale!

    Here’s a quick guide to the products available, and how they’ll help you rest easy in your hot tub investment:

    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.

    Care Free Water Care

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

    Safety Rail

    There’s nothing like an evening soak in your Beachcomber, especially as the temperature cools after a hot, active summer day. Our expertly designed safety rail is built to seamlessly attach to your Beachcomber Hot Tub and provide an added layer of safety and security as bathers enter and exit the hot tub. With a swivel and lock feature, as well as a soft blue LED light, this aluminum railing gives everyone a hand when it comes to nighttime hot tubbing.

    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.

  • 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.

  • Hot Tub Accessories You Need For Summer

    Hot Tub Accessories You Need For Summer

    In the middle of the summer, you might not always be thinking of jumping into a hot tub, but there’s actually easy ways to enjoy it all summer long, with a few adjustments you can read more about here.

    Here’s a few of the top accessories we recommend for summer hot tub use:

    Skimmer Tray Holder

    The Skimmer Tray Holder is the perfect way to keep a nice cold beverage safe and close by as you enjoy your hot tub soak. With three built-in cup holders, it’s a super handy accessory for transitioning deck drinks into your hot tub. Plastic, closed lid cups are always recommended for use in your Beachcomber, and while we can’t tell you what to put in them, always drink plenty of water before, during, and after hot tubbing (especially in the sun).

    Hot Tub Cover Protectant

    Your Beachcomber Hot Tub HEATSHIELD Cover is designed to enhance the beauty of your hot tub, so it is important to keep it protected against the harsh rays of the sun as well as against the elements of the weather. A hot tub cover protectant, such as Cover Care, can keep your cover looking spotless all summer long.

    ClearTech UVC Advanced Technology

    Traditionally, hot tub water is maintained through added treatment programs to the water in order to balance and clarify. Beachcomber Hot Tubs has developed an easier way for hot tub water treatment, though our ClearTech UVC Filtration System upgrade. Harnessing the natural power of the sun’s UV light, this hot tub water treatment technology alters bacteria in hot tub water rendering it completely harmless and cuts down on your need for traditional sanitizers by up to 70%, while producing no harmful by-products as a result. Less chemicals, less owner upkeep, and even healthier water for you and your family to enjoy. There’s no better time to upgrade then when the sun’s UV rays are at their peak!

    Re-usable Party Cups

    Party Cup Express will let you custom print on re-usable party cups of all shapes and colours. You can shop by theme as well, for any event that summer throws at you. And for maximum spill proof safety, consider enclosed tumblers, with straws. The Hawaiian coconut cups available on Amazon, would be perfectly suited to a luau themed backyard gathering, and ensures that no fruity beverage ends up in your hot tub water!

    Spa Umbrella

    Your outdoor living space will feel more like an oasis if you create a sense of enclosure. In the summer, it’s also important to keep yourself and others safe from the strong rays of the sun throughout the day and into the evening. Adding a large patio umbrella provides flexible shading for you and your guests. Take it down at night and enjoy your view of the summer night sky.

    Towel Packs

    Sounds pretty simple doesn’t it? But don’t rely on standard indoor towels for your hot tub and instead enjoy the warm embrace of Beachcomber’s 4 pack of embroidered hot tub towels to make every soaking experience enjoyable from the minute you walk out the door to the minute you step back inside.

  • 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!
