• 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.

    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.

    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.

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.

  • Your Hot Tub Yoga Guide

    Your Hot Tub Yoga Guide

    What’s better than a calming, healing yoga session? How about one in the comfort of your Beachcomber Hot Tub! If you’ve ever been interested in trying out yoga, but were worried about the impacts of the pressure and weight on your joints, hot tub yoga might be the perfect solution for you.

    Why? The natural buoyancy of water in your hot tub takes pressure off your joints, reducing the impact and alleviating pain and discomfort. Warm water also helps sooth muscles, enhancing your flexibility and making your yoga poses more effective, even as a beginner.

    Here are a few of the most important benefits of hot tub yoga:

    Increased Flexibility

    Hot tub water naturally gets your blood flowing and helps loosen tense muscles. Plus, in water, your body doesn’t have to do as much to fight gravity as you hold onto your yoga poses.

    Strengthens Your Muscles

    Yoga is a low-impact, full-body exercise, making it a fantastic way to build strength no matter your age or athletic ability. Yoga in water is even less strenuous on your body, and makes a fantastic outlet for building up strength and staying in shape.

    Relieves Pain

    Aquatic yoga helps relieve pressure on your major joints, tendons, and ligaments, which makes it completely accessible and safe for practitioners of all ages and physical strengths.

    Ready to get started? Here’s a few of our favourite poses:

     

    The Wave

    Hot Tub yoga wave post

    Difficulty: Beginner  

    We call this pose the wave, as it will make your latissimus dorsi and oblique muscles as limber as the waves in the ocean.

    How to do this pose:

    Stand in the foot well of your hot tub with your feet shoulder-length apart. Lift your left arm up to the sky while slowly bending to the right and look up at your left hand. Repeat 3 times on each side.

    Crescent Moon

     Hot Tub Yoga crescent moon pose

    Difficulty: Intermediate

    Bow your body like a crescent moon to stretch the muscles in your abdominals.

    How to do this pose:

    Stand up in the footwell of your Beachcomber. Start with your hands on either side of you body, slow reach up and place your hands together above your head. Slowly arch your back imagining there is a string pulling your chest towards the sky. Be very careful not to over-exert your back. Not recommended for those with lower back problems.

    Palm Tree

     

    Beachcomber hot tubs, hot tub, spas, yoga, stretching

     

    Difficulty: Beginner

    Place your foot on your other leg’s upper thigh and stretch your arms above your head to complete the Palm Tree position.

    How to do this pose:

    Stand up in the footwell of your hot tub. Start this stretch by lifting one leg up and bending it so that your foot reaches your other thigh. Follow this by placing your hands above your head and clasping them together. Once complete, hold the position for a few minutes and then repeat with the other leg. To make the most of this stretch, lift your foot as far as you possibly can up your other leg. Another point on this position is to attempt to keep your back straight throughout the full duration of the stretch.

    Half Boat

     

    Beachcomber Hot Tubs, spas, hot tubs, yoga

     

    Difficulty: Intermediate

    Make a 90 degree angle with your chest and legs to work your abdominal and leg muscles.

    How to do this pose:

    Sit down in a comfortable position in your Beachcomber. Start this pose by sliding down in the seat, just enough so that your chin is right above the water line. Once done, adjust your rear so that you’re able to comfortably lift your legs. To fully take advantage of this exercise, be sure to lift your legs enough that it allows your feet to breach the water or just until you feel the stretch. This position can be tough on the back, so be aware not to overwork your body.

  • BACKYARD DESIGN IDEAS FOR SUMMER

    BACKYARD DESIGN IDEAS FOR SUMMER

    Good backyards are functional. Great backyards are functional and beautiful. You can create the perfect backyard, reflecting both function and your own personal style, on any budget, by doing your research and making a plan. Here are a few tips for your own backyard dream design.

    Backyard Design Tips

    Layout

    Whether your space is small and intimate or large and spacious, think about the different zones for the various installations you have in mind and mark them out with tape during this initial design phase.

    Pathways

    Be realistic in how much you can fit into your space. If you are dealing with a smaller backyard, keep in mind that you still need traffic flow and pathways between the fixed items you are looking to include.

    View

    As you decide on the different zones for your backyard space, look at it from several different angles including your indoor windows. For the harmonious layout you hope to carry from inside the home into the outdoors, it’s important that you have a complete vision of what you will be looking at from various viewpoints.

    Take it in Stages

    Even if you’re on a budget and want to build your outdoor living area in stages, it’s recommended that you have the complete layout planned before you set-up permanent structures.

    Invest in the Long-term

    As you calculate your budget, think about the areas that mean the most to you. Certain landscaping details might be nice aesthetically, but over-allocating resources could quickly drain your resources. Investing into a quality table for outdoor conversation, and an outdoor hot tub that can be used by family and friends all year, provide incredible utility for your investment. Look at ways to dress up the details on a budget, while giving yourself the show-stopping enhancements you always wanted.

     

    Even if your yard is quite small, maximize space and function by setting apart specific areas. With a great plan in place, you can go ahead and get it done and be sure to plan enough time and resources.

  • CREATING A BACKYARD OASIS

    CREATING A BACKYARD OASIS

    Your dream summer vacation is as close as your backyard. With the weather heating up, it’s time to start dressing up your outdoor living spaces and creating the ultimate retreat just steps from the door. Below are a few tips to get you started, on any budget!

    How To Design Your Backyard Getaway

    Think of your backyard as an extension of your indoor spaces

    Design your patio space like any other indoor living space when you are coming up with your concept. Think furnishings, lighting, colour, decorative accents, and overall design flow.

    Furnish for comfort & durability

    Today, there are so many affordable, stylish choices for outdoor furniture, it can be hard to know where to even start. Before you get overwhelmed by the selection, think about the main purpose of the space. Do you want a formal dining area with a table and chairs? A laid-back lounge with plush furnishings and accent tables? Start with the biggest pieces as you shop, and layer in accents later when you have the budget for it. 

    Ensure Shade and Privacy

    Your outdoor living space will feel more like an oasis if you create a sense of enclosure. Use lattice and landscaping to define the outdoor space and build privacy screens from the neighbours and inside spaces in the home. Add a large patio umbrella or a pergola to create shade to escape the summer sun. These can also be used to deliver focal points and separate your areas according to function, or provide transitions from one outdoor living space to another.

    Add Colour Through Accents & Planters

    Cushions are a great way to add comfort as well as infuse colour into your outdoor spaces. You can switch them up after a few years to create a totally new design feel, without having to spend a lot of money. When you are shopping, make sure you select cushions with an outdoor fabric that is UV and water resistance for added durability. Flowers and foliage are another way to add beautiful colours to your space as well as deliver privacy. 

    Invest In A Hot Tub or Spa

    For long, relaxing soaks at the end of the day, a hot tub or spa out on the deck is a must-have luxury. To determine the best location for the hot tub, consider privacy, access to the house, and whether you want the hot tub in the sunshine or shade. You’ll also need additional room for sitting and walking around the hot tub. Remember, a hot tub full of water weighs 2 tons, so it will need a foundation independent of the deck’s foundation.

    Outdoor Lighting

    You will want to enjoy your backyard getaway after the sun goes down. Include an array of outdoor lighting by starting with porch lights that illuminate access to the house and provide ambient lighting. For dining and conversation zones, candlelight, wall mount downlights, or dimmable electric lamps create a relaxed mood. Steps and walkways should be illuminated for safety. You can also use solar-powered lights or low voltage lights to add drama and interest to the landscape and to highlight paths. Combine a mix of lighting sources to make your backyard getaway a magical place after dark.

  • HOT TUB SHOPPING GUIDE

    HOT TUB SHOPPING GUIDE

    How To Narrow Down Your Options

    You have made the decision to buy a hot tub. You’re now on the path to owning and loving an investment that you and your family can enjoy for years and years to come, but the next steps you take are critical. How can you be sure you are getting the best deal for your money? And with so many hot tub manufacturers and models to choose from, how can you be sure you are buying the best possible hot tub for you?

    The Questions You Need To Ask When Shopping For A Hot Tub

     

    In order to narrow down your options, follow the steps below:

     

    #1: What’s my budget?

    Hot tub pricing can vary from $4,000 to up to $25,000 depending on the retailer. Different price points reflect different features, jetting, and size, but most often come down to the quality in the construction.

    Beachcomber Tip:

    Go with the manufacturer you think has the best reputation from current owners. Look at reviews of the specific models that align with your budget and be willing to let go of certain add-on features or a larger size if it means avoiding a less reputable, budget hot tub manufacturer. When you go for a lower price point hot tub, you’re looking at a very short-term no-frills experience. Hot tubs at the price at or below $6,000 most often are so poorly insulated you’ll end up paying far more in the long run to operate them.

     

    #2: What are my biggest must-have features?

    With so much to choose from in add-on features and hot tub model configurations, it’s important you think about what matters most to you in your purchase prior to stepping into a showroom or speaking to a representative. What will you be using it for? Hydrotherapy for muscle pain? Socializing? Think hard about your expectations so you won’t end up disappointed.

    Beachcomber 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-have” amenities.

     

    #3: When do I want my hot tub by?

    Much like shopping for a car, most hot tub manufacturers offer the ability to customize your order with the features and finishes you choose. Be aware that this can not only impact your bottom line, but also the timeline in which your chosen model will be available to ship. If you want a hot tub for the fall, start shopping earlier in the summer to allow 6-8 weeks for construction and delivery. Many manufacturers, including Beachcomber Hot Tubs, also offer quick ship models that are pre-built and ready to ship in just days, however be prepared to be more limited in your options should you choose this route.

    Beachcomber Tip:

    Sometimes, we hear prospective owners delaying on their purchase time in order to get more prepared financially for the investment. One alternative option is hot tub financing. We offer prospective owners the ability to set-up a  bi-weekly payment structure for their purchase, with the option to add additional payments at any time with zero penalty. This way you can enjoy your hot tub sooner, without over stretching yourself financially.
