• How Often Will I Really Use A Hot Tub?

    How Often Will I Really Use A Hot Tub?

    You probably know someone who once owned a hot tub that sat for years in the backyard, eventually becoming overgrown and completely non-operational. Or someone who purchased a hot tub, used it regularly for the first three months, then stopped taking care of it until it eventually fell into totally disrepair. So how can you be sure you’ll avoid a similar outcome?

    Will I Use A Hot Tub Enough To Justify The Cost?

    Make A Personal Commitment

    There’s a few ways to then look at this question, the first being something you really must consider for yourself. A hot tub should be looked at as an investment in a happier, healthier lifestyle, and not just as an entertainment or recreational item. In order to fully realize all the wonderful wellness benefits of hot tubbing, you need to use your hot tub often – make it a part of your daily routine.

    Find The Right Model

    The second consideration is the hot tub model itself. By choosing a reliable, high-quality brand, you’ll be able to focus on the benefits of the purchase, instead of becoming frustrated by continuously high-maintenance and operational costs. A hot tub is a lifetime investment, so don’t be fooled by a low sticker price, and really research product lifespan, insulation, and materials used in construction as you comparatively shop.

    Install It Close To Your Door

    Finally, place it somewhere convenient for all-year access. How often you will really use it is directly related to how close your hot tub is to your home. On a dark morning, or when it’s freezing outside, are you really going to trek across the yard to get in the hot tub every day? Position your spa in close proximity to a door. If you are worried about noise, then be sure to choose a model with a dedicated circulation pump that quietly circulates the water 24 hours a day, eliminating the need for loud filtration cycles.

    We invite you to make your personal wellness a priority. You will find that when you use your Beachcomber Hot Tub daily, you’ll feel better and get the most out of the benefits it provides.

  • Why Energy Efficiency Is So Important For A Hot Tub

    Why Energy Efficiency Is So Important For A Hot Tub

    Looking To Keep Warm This Winter?

    A common claim across hot tub manufacturers is how much more energy efficient their hot tubs are compared to the competition. While all brands claim to be the leader in the market, how can they back this up?

    Let’s talk hot tub insulation

    As you comparatively shop, start asking yourself: “Am I really looking at a fully foamed spa?”

    Back in the ’80s, spas were built with absolutely zero insulation, and some companies continue to cut corners here. On budget spas you’ll often see insulations practices like using trapped air or a small layer of foam on the back side of the interior shell. You wouldn’t build a home without insulated walls, right? Just like Beachcomber wouldn’t build a hot tub without 100% cavity-filled insulation.

    Brands that use these methods do it for one reason: it’s cheaper for them. When it comes to owning one however, even if you’ve saved on the sticker price, you’ll be losing big every month when you look at operating costs.

    Fully foaming the interior cavity of the spa continues to be the most important element in minimizing heat loss and maximizing efficiency; and it’s something that Beachcomber continues to be the industry leader in.

    With our Hybrid Technology, Beachcomber took things to the next level by taking the interior equipment and moving it outside the hot tub cavity and under the step. This has allowed us to insulate all four walls of the hot tub, blocking moisture and heat from escaping the shell on all sides. The insulation we use is a specially formulated foam product that is made right in our British Columbia factory and expands to fill the entire space within the hot tub. It’s something you’ll see across Beachcomber models, and across price points.

    Along with saving you money on energy costs, the insulation allows the interior equipment to run at a consistent proper temperature which ensures long equipment life, and maintains your desired water temperature.

    Nearly 40 years after we began revolutionizing the industry with hot tub insulation, Hybrid continues to carry on our proud tradition of technological excellence.
