    The revolutionary hot tub technology of the ClearTech UVC sterilization system

    A totally hands-free approach to hot tub water care, our proven ClearTech UVC sterilization technology harnesses the power of the sun’s UV light to kill harmful bacteria in your water as it filter’s through the tub’s plumbing. It’s a secondary layer of water treatment that prolongs the lifetime of hot tub water and is fully compatible with our CARE FREE, and CHLOR water care programs. This environmentally-friendly system produces no by-products and can reduce your sanitizer consumption by 50%.

    The ClearTech UVC Sterilization System does not eliminate the need for water care products, however, it will extend the life of your products and water by eliminating bacteria, viruses, and lowering Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) present in your water 24/7. This allows the chlorine residual to oxidize, which reduces any prevalent odours or skin irritation from chloramines.

    This highly efficient water purification system is a natural solution for cleaner results!

  • How Much Does It Cost To Operate A Hot Tub?

    How Much Does It Cost To Operate A Hot Tub?

    Hot tubs are clearly built to be enjoyed, and often! It should therefore come as no surprise that they require electricity to heat and circulate water, and power the jets, lights, and various built-in features. But just how much of a spike in your electricity bill are you likely to see?

    Well if you go with a high-quality construction, the answer might be surprise you.

    Typically, you are looking at monthly electrical costs in the $10 – $20 range! There are a few factors you need to consider, including your local climate, the temperature you set it at, and the cost of electricity in your specific location.

    What really makes the difference in operating costs is the type of hot tub you choose.

    Factors to Look for:

    Look closely at the insulation, the density of the cover you choose, the pump, and the heaters. Essentially, a high-quality construction is going to be able to maintain and circulate heat at a much, much more efficient rate than a flimsy, poorly insulated cheaper option.

    With the help of our patented Hybrid3 4-wall insulation, that moves the mechanics of the hot tub outside of the shell and underneath the steps, Beachcomber Hot Tubs have been shown to be up to 33% more energy efficient than competitor models.

    Along with the longer product lifetime, the lower cost of operation is another reason that it’s important to look past the upfront costs as you weigh the options in your home spa purchase. If you go too low in your initial investment on a non-reputable brand, you are likely going to see a much higher spike in energy consumption and a short lifespan of usage ahead.

  • How To Use Your Hot Tub In Summer

    How To Use Your Hot Tub In Summer

    It’s the middle of the summer, and you’re looking for a refreshing way to cool off…a hot tub might be the last thing on your mind. But, did you know there’s ways you can still enjoy the therapeutic waters and pulsating jets of a hot tub even in the summer heat.

    Follow the tips below for a safe and satisfying soaking experience in your hot tub:

    How To Cool The Water

    If you want a relaxing experience in your hot tub during the day, try turning the temperature down to 95 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. Anything lower than your average body temperature, which is 98.6 degrees, will feel relaxing, even during the hottest days. If you really want to cool down and transform your hot tub into a “cool tub” turn the temperature down to 85 degrees or lower. Test the water’s temperature to find the perfect heat for a daytime dip or to prepare for backyard parties with friends. To make sure the water stays cool, keep the cover on when not in use so the hot tub does not absorb the sun’s heat.

    Keep your Skin Protected

    No matter the temperature you choose, remember that water attracts the sun! Whether you feel it or not, it’s very important to keep your skin protected and wear the same amounts of sunscreen you would use in a pool as you immerse yourself in the waters. Give yourself a bit more protection by adding some shade to your hot tub set-up.

    Stay hydrated

    Sitting in steaming hot water often drains the body of fluids. Enjoy that dip by drinking plenty of fresh, cold water beforehand. Keep a water bottle by the hot tub, and drink while soaking, as well.

    Take a Nighttime Dip

    Hot tub owners often use the hot tub when the sun goes down and cooler temperatures arrive. Once the sizzling sun has set, you can be sure you’ll be better protected from the elements as you enjoy your soak. And thanks to our Everlite Moodlighting feature, you can create your own ambiance while safely enjoying your hot tub.

    Whether using a hot tub in winter or summer, following a simple set of rules and tips helps make the experience more enjoyable. It also helps people stay safe in hot water.

    Remember, the start of the summer season is a great time for a drain and re-fill of your hot tub, something you should do at least 3-4 times a year to ensure healthy, balanced water in your tub.

  • What Makes Beachcomber Hot Tubs The Most Energy Efficient? Discover Hybrid3 Technology

    What Makes Beachcomber Hot Tubs The Most Energy Efficient? Discover Hybrid3 Technology

    Something that we’re often asked about is the meaning of the Hybrid4 logo that adorns the side of our hot tubs.

    It all started back in the 1980s, when Beachcomber had only been in the market for a few years and hot tubs were built with no insulation at all. The pumping equipment was built inside the cavity (something you still most often see) and tucked in behind the hot tub cabinetry. This created an issue for owners, as the heat from the tubs escaped so easily that they have to drain them in the winter to prevent the water from freezing. Wanting to drastically improve the standard of the industry, Beachcomber founders Keith & Judy Scott had a breakthrough that on re-inventing the mechanics of a hot tub in 1983.

    Beachcomber Hot Tub Energy Savings

    They decided to take the internal equipment and move it outside the hot tub cavity. This allowed them to insulate all four walls of the hot tub, which studies have shown is the number one most important factor affecting energy efficiency.

    Did you know that Beachcomber Hot Tubs are up to 43% more energy efficient than other hot tubs? 

    With 4 walls insulated, Beachcomber engineers created an ingenious solution for placing the pumping and heating systems seamlessly under the front step. This not only provides savings in energy efficiency, but allows easy accessing for equipment maintenance and checks.

    When it comes to insulation, the foam product Beachcomber uses across all of our models is made right in our factory in British Columbia, Canada. It expands to fill the entire space within the hot tub and is applied by hand by one of our specialized technicians.

    Along with saving you money on energy costs, the insulation allows easy maintenance of your desired water temperature.

    Keith and Judy’s new idea not only revolutionized the hot tub industry, but continues to this day to set Beachcomber apart from its competitors. Nearly 40 years later, Hybrid3 carries on the proud technological tradition.

  • The Easiest Way To Clean Your Hot Tub Ever

    The Easiest Way To Clean Your Hot Tub Ever

    The water quality within your home spa plays a huge role in ensuring lasting and safe enjoyment for you and your family. At Beachcomber, we’ve taken big steps towards reducing the amount of chemicals required in order to keep your water clear and balanced.

    While weekly maintenance of your hot tub is very straightforward and quick, the one step all owners should take in order to ensure the long-term quality of their spa is draining and refilling the water at least 3 times per year.

    Introducing The Hot Tub Chamois

    If the water sits for too long, it will require more and more chemicals to stay balanced, and, just like a car, the tub itself needs a good scrubbing every once and awhile to remove the effects of being outside in nature. As we enter into spring, it’s a great time to get out there and give your hot tub a thorough clean before summer.

    The process is much easier than you might imagine, as we outlined in our go-to instructions for owners How To Drain and Re-fill Your Hot Tub, and we’re very excited to announce that it’s now even easier thanks to The Hot Tub Chamois! 

    What’s the big deal? Well, combined with Beachcomber Tub Clean, The Chamois will have your acrylic shining like new, without the hassle and ineffectiveness of using a sponge that breaks apart and leaves behind unsightly water marks and streaks.

    Some of the Advantages of The Hot Tub Chamois:

    • Made from high-performance synthetic material that is super absorbent, non-abrasive and ultra soft to lift and trap dirt and grime
    • Eliminates water marks and risk of scratches to bring back the natural lustre of the acrylic
    • Easily absorbs excess water build-up in the foot-well that can be a huge hassle when cleaning
    • Incredibly durable and easily washable for re-use 100s of times.
