• How a HEATSHIELD™ Saves You Money

    How a HEATSHIELD™ Saves You Money

    Before the fast pace and burgeoning bills of the holidays, the Fall is a great time to save money. Plus, you need a hot tub cover to seal in heat during the cooler months, so it’s worth remembering how critical your cover choice is to energy efficiency and cost savings.

    How Investing in a Heatshield Cover = Cost Savings

    A HEATSHIELD™ by Beachcomber is designed for maximum energy efficiency and boasts 45% more insulating power than industry standard hot tub covers. Designed to lock in your hot tub’s heat and energy, the HEATSHIELD™ will save you up to $500 per year in heating costs!*


    Why is this? What makes a HEATSHIELD hot tub cover perform better?

    Made in Canada

    Every Beachcomber HEATSHIELD™ is proudly made in Canada with quality materials and craftsmanship, making it an investment that will withstand the elements and last the test of time.

    Heat-Sealed Construction

    The airtight, heat-seal design effectively keeps the cold air out, which will maximize the longevity and performance of your cover.

    Durable Against All Elements

    Reinforced light-weight aluminum keeps the structure of your cover looking like new. Mildew, moisture, and UV rays are simply no match against the marine grade vinyl skin!

    Two Year Guarantee

    We stand behind our products. This is our commitment to our customers. Our HEATSHIELD™ will perform as promised.


    Consider also:

    Given how critical a high performing cover is to conserve heat, save electrical costs and keep dirt and debris out of your hot tub, we cannot overemphasize the importance of its regular use. When well maintained, the HEATSHIELD™ is very easy to remove. And combining it with a cover lifter will make nightly use even easier. The Airlift and Slide ‘n Store Extreme are two options worth checking out!


    And if you purchase your HEATSHIELD™ before October 8th, you’ll get a FREE Drain & Fill Tote (valued at $129).

  • Why does my spa cover smell?

    Why does my spa cover smell?

    Find that there’s a bad smell around your hot tub? Have you cleaned everything around your tub and are still effected by the smell? This smell could be emanating from your hot tub heatshield.

    There are a few common reasons for these smells.

    Uncovering The Hot Tub Cover Smell


    Damaged Heatshield

    Rips and holes in the cover allow moisture to sit and mold to fester. It’s important that you often dry and clean the vinyl of your cover to prevent water from sitting.


    Dirty Cover

    If your hot tub is outside, your cover is being exposed to the elements on a constant basis. This means that rain, wind, dirt and dust are constantly landing on it. Over time, the hot tub cover will become dirty. This dirty and grime combined cold temperatures create the perfect environment for mold and mildew to grow.


    Check your Water

    Unbalanced water in your hot tub can allow bacteria and other types of schmegma. Once this water is turned into steam and covers the inside of your spa cover, the bacteria can continue to flourish on the cover itself causing the bad smells that make you turn and run.


    Although there are easy ways to get rid of this smell, it’s important that you take specific precautions to assure that your efforts are effective. First, always keep your heatshield clean and free of debris. While simple, this will prevent rips and tears from occurring, as well as keep mold and mildew from growing on your cover.

    If you follow these above precautions, you’ll have a fresh and clean hot tub cover for an extended amount of time.
