    New Study Shows The Power of Hot Tubs in Helping Arthritis Sufferers

    A new study from The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research shows how physical training in warm water can help millions of osteoarthritis sufferers.

    Osteoarthritis is an illness that causes inflammation and damage in your joints and creates chronic pain and swelling that impacts your range of motion and ability to maintain a balanced, active lifestyle. In the US alone, over 27 million suffer from this.

    How Do Hot Tubs Provide Arthritis Relief?

    1. Warm water stimulates the blood flow to stiff muscles and joints to help reduce inflammation, swelling and pain.
    2. The water’s buoyancy inside the tub helps to take pressure off joints and offers support to make it easier to move and flex muscles.
    3. Hot tubs creates a much safer exercise environment, with a reduced risk of falling, lowered joint loads and three dimensional support to help maintain balance.

    When patients with the condition participated in warm water exercise programs two or three times a week, their pain decreased as much as 40% and their ability to stay physically agile increased noticeably!

    As an added bonus, the study also drew results that correlated the use of regular exercise in warm water with an emotional boost for participants, as well as improved sleeping patterns.

    So remember, when you step inside a Beachcomber, you’re doing more than just finding an escape to relax, you’re giving your body the environment it needs to stay active and healthy – at any age!

  • Troubleshooting a Noisy/Broken Hot Tub Pump

    Troubleshooting a Noisy/Broken Hot Tub Pump

    A noisy hot tub pump is a common troubleshooting item in many older or less well-maintained hot tubs. Whether you’re hearing a loud buzzing, grinding or clicking noise, you can usually assume it’s coming from the motor.

    Having a technician come look at your hot tub is crucial and what we suggest you do if you’re experiencing any issues. There are a few

    Fixing A Noisy Hot Tub Pump

    Buzzing or Humming Noise

    A buzzing or humming noise is often a sign of a seized or otherwise damaged pump. This sound usually comes with other symptoms such as:

    • Little or no water circulation
    • Topside control panel shows OH, DR, FLO, or DRY
    • The tub is having trouble circulating water

    Grinding Noise

    A grinding noise indicates a motor with bad bearings. Because bearings do wear over time, it’s best to have these checked every time a hot tub technician takes a look at your hot tub. Once you hear a grinding noise, it’s a sign that you need to order new bearings because the grinding is a sign of damage.

    Tripped Breaker

    A tripped breaker will cause your hot tub pump to stop working. As a solution, try disconnecting the heater and then flipping the breaker back on. If following this the breaker trips again, try disconnecting the pump and then flipping the breaker on. If the breaker doesn’t flip when the pump is disconnected, the hot tub pump is your problem.

    Obstructed Pump

    A loud Beachcomber hot tub pump can also be a sign of an obstruction being present within your pump. With an obstruction, the pump will be forced to work harder, thus making a noise as well as creating unnecessary wear within the components.

    In general, we suggest having a certified hot tub technician take a look at your hot tub if you’re experiencing any issues.
