With special, inviting lighting like the Beachcomber Hot Tub below, with our digital Eclipse Lighting, you have ready-made 'candles' to set the mood just right. Good feelings are evoked when you are enveloped by the warm, massaging waters of a Beachcomber - conversation flows and you share your dreams and aspirations with your loved ones. And with the mood lighting like this, it becomes a relaxing, romantic vacation getaway that you can enjoy and escape to, just a few feet from your back door, any time you need it. There is no luggage to worry about, no tickets, and no crowds when escaping to a Beachcomber - just you, your loved ones, and good feelings in warm, massaging water.

The Evolution of a Quality Brand Beachcomber Hot Tub

Posted by Yvonne Schnurr on Tue, Nov 26, 2013 @ 05:12 PM

Keith Scott started with a simple goal: "to build a better hot tub." In the mid -  seventies, at the start of the spa industry, the lack of quality products that Beachcomber was receiving for resale prompted us to provide our customers with something better. We started by manufacturing our own Beachcomber Hot Tub shells and putting together a package of pumps and plumbing parts allowing retail customers to put the pieces together themselves at home, but this process was still unsatisfactory. Next in the early eighties we built portable hot tubs with the equipment inside the cavity allowing for little or no insulation, a process that most spa manufactures still use today. We still do not agree with this type of spa construction. In 1983 we came up with a better idea and insulated all 4 walls and cab forward the power equipment outside the water vessel. To this day, I am still committed to this construction method of Beachcomber Hot Tubs because it confirms my first goal, "it's a better quality hot tub." 

Flash Back

Keith Scott learned from his family that looking after your customers and providing them with a good product and service builds customer loyalty. After working for ten years and building swimming pools, Keith saw an opportunity to start into a new industry of hot tubs. Using the skills he learned from his family and working in the work world he jumped in and began Beachcomber Hot Tubs. 

We build the best quality and most comfortable hot tubs in the world- and our family of exclusive distributors strive to treat every customer with the same care and respect we treat the people closest to us - our families. Our ultimate goal is to reduce stress, relax, and enjoy therapeutic health and wellness, with the recuperative healing powers of a Beachcomber Hot Tub for you.

Phil Rintoul learned during his youth, working in their family business, giving him the opportunity to learn the basics of running a good business; quality products and outstanding customer service create quality customers. Growing up in a home where honesty, love, hard work and caring for our fellow man were as natural as part of life as breathing. Rintoul's Pools and Hot Tubs has built their business by taking care of our customers, one customer at a time. And they, in turn, recommend us to their family and friends.

Our goal is to take the quality we have through all of our 15 hot tub models and be the leader in greener technologies.

A Consumer's Guide to Buying a Hot Tub

Posted by Yvonne Schnurr on Wed, Jun 12, 2013 @ 08:49 AM

describe the imagedescribe the image

For centuries, people have flocked to natural springs to take advantage of the 'curative' properties of bathing in its hot water. Today people around the world continue to agree that nothing seems to sooth the aches and pains of a hard day's work like a hot soak.

While natural hot springs are tough to find, modern homeowners can easily bring this experience to their backyards with a hot tub. Buying one, however, can be overwhelming. But if you do your homework, you can ensure you'll buy the hot tub that best suits your needs.

There are five basic things to consider when buying a hot tub:

  1. Comfort and Design
  2. Reputation
  3. Insulation
  4. Massage Capabilities
  5. Ease of Maintenance

Comfort and Design

Above all else, you want your hot tub to be comfortable. Check to see if the hot tub seats are ergonomically designed to fit your body's natural curves. You need to make sure you fit comfortably into the seats in order to get the best possible soaking and massage experience. Don't be afraid to get in and test out the seats. If a seat is not comfortable when it is dry, odds are it won't be any more comfortable when it is wet. You should also take a close look at other design features of the hot tub. For example, is there multi-level seating, does the hot tub have a large enough foot well to accommodate multiple bathers and are there safety steps to enter the hot tub? Even minor features should be studied. For instance, if the hot tub comes with pillows, ensure they are comfortable and easy to remove and clean. Check to see if there is a place to put an ice bucket or place drinks. No detail is too insignificant.

Reputation

Look for hot tub manufacturers that have been in business for awhile and have a proven record of reliability. Visiting your local LeisureScapes dealer for advice is a good place to start. You can also ask friends or family members with hot tubs about their experiences with particular brands.

Also, investigate whether the product they offer are covered by a reasonable warranty. A good warranty would consist of a 10 year structural warranty, 5 year acrylic surface and 3 year parts and labour warranty.

Insulation

This factor is significant because of its link to energy efficiency, an important consideration for any home-owner. First and foremost, look for a hot tub that is approved by the Commission for Environmental Co-operation (CEC). Investigate how long it takes for the hot tub to pump out and filter 100 percent of its water. The less time this takes the more energy-efficient the hot tub will be. Look at models that use low-amperage filtration pumps. A good hardcover can also provide added insulation and energy efficiency.

Massage Capabilities

Likely the most appealing element of a hot tub is its massage capabilities. When added to soothing feel of hot water, it can truly make or break your hot tub experience. Through it may be tempting to go for the model with the most jets, more is not always better. Instead, look for jets that are strategically placed in the most optimal spots. For example, foot jets are often overlooked, even though they can provide one of the best possible massages.

Customization is also a much sought-after feature when it comes to jets. A model with optimized hydraulics will ensure an even flow of water is sent to each jet for a smooth, comfortable massage.

Ease of Maintenance

No matter what hot tub you choose, you need to make sure it is easy to service. When it comes to hot tub maintenance, there are two primary factors you need to address - filtration and disinfection.

Filtration. In a hot tub, dirt can only do two things. It is either light enough to float on the surface or heavy enough to drop to the bottom. When assessing a hot tub's filtration capabilities, be sure to ask how long it takes to filter 100percent of the water. Also check to ensure the skimmer is sufficient. Does it provide enough filtration to remove debris and does it have a floating door to skim the surface of the water? also ask the salesperson whether the hot tub has a suction side filter or pressure side filter. The suction side filter offers less expensive filtration, but is not as effective ; It will only filter 50 percent of the hot tub water. Conversely, pressure side filters are more expensive, but since 100 percent of the water passes through the filter, all of it can be cleaned.

Disinfection. To keep your hot tub safe and pleasant to use, you will also need to disinfect the water regularly. Ideally, look for a hot tub that has an in-line chemical feeder as opposed to a floating dispenser. If you choose to use an ozone system, which is designed to reduce your overall chemical requirements, look for a model that uses an injection system. If you opt for a saltwater bromine system ask your local dealer to help you set it up properly to best suit your needs. Once you understand the system, it will be easy to use and makes for a very pleasant soaking experience.

Go Forth And Shop

Although looking for a hot tub can be confusing at times, you can make the process less complicated by narrowing down your search criteria to the five areas above. With a little preparation ahead of time, your hot tub buying experience will be a stress- free, enjoyable experience.... the way it should be.

How long does it take to build an inground pool?

Posted by Phil Rintoul on Mon, Jun 10, 2013 @ 04:00 PM

Design and custom installation of an in ground pool.

describe the image

I am asked this question time and time again and there is no real answer.

The size of the project, the expertise needed for each step within the project, and of course

the weather all play a role in the  timeframe to complete your new pool.

Most professional pool builders will have a starting package which includes the basics needed

with a list of options that can fulfill your needs.

On small to midsize residential backyards most timelines would be aprox. 2 weeks for

installation then allow time for sodding or landscaping to green things up.

Larger projects can include designs from landscape architects with great detail on elevations

drainage, deck space, gazebos, pool cabanas, fencing and retaining walls.  This really helps 

the homeowner see how the finished product will look in there back yard.  These projects are 

usually 4 - 8 weeks depending on product availability and good old mother nature.

Take the time to find a reputable builder that has experience and lots of pictures and referrals

to help guide and educate you on this process.  The lowest price might make you feel good off

the start but the price is soon forgotten when things dont go as you planned.  Remember life 

is not perfect and when things go wrong you want a contractor that will recognize the issues 

 and make it right.
