Why it’s the Perfect Time to Invest in a Cover Removal System

With the New Year now under way, you may be looking forward to following your New Year’s resolutions. If part of that is better health, deeper sleep, and quicker post-exercise recovery, your Beachcomber hot tub will play a large role in your plan! To make sure that your Beachcomber is also geared up for 2019 resolutions, now is a perfect time to invest in a cover removal system.

Outside of the hot tub itself, there’s no more important element to your Beachcomber than the cover. A hot tub cover not only keeps your hot tub protected, it keeps your water clean and traps in heat to maintain the energy efficiency.


Our HEATSHIELD™ hot tub covers have been designed with up to 45% more insulating power than standard covers, and include our vacuum-seal construction to ensure that the heat inside your hot tub stays inside. This way you can keep costs down in winter as you enjoy your daily soaks in your Beachcomber’s massaging waters.

If you have any issues with your back, or are planning on enjoying solo soaks often, one of the best investments you can make into your hot tub is a cover removal system that takes the work out of getting in and out of your hot tub.

At Beachcomber, we offer a few hot tub cover lifter options to satisfy varying needs and price points.
