Maintenance and using a traditional Concrete Spa.
Concrete spas require extensive internal and external supports to help prevent cracking and distortion, due to their large weight and material size. Executing this step incorrectly is costly! Concrete even though it’s very strong, is prone to cracking and corrosion over time, as the ground continues to settle beneath the spa. The surface contours can be rough and abrasive, and they can stain, and discolor easily.
Concrete is a porous surface, and a breeding ground for algae and other micro-bacteria. As a result it will require more extensive maintenance with periodic acid washing and even expensive re-plastering. Concrete spas have relatively high maintenance costs and are much more expensive to operate due to the excessive chemical requirements and high energy demand to maintain heat.
The portable spas that Beachcomber began building in the 1970’s proved so popular, partly due to their portability. Even today, with your Beachcomber Hot Tub, if you move, you can simply take it with you. Of course this is not the case with a concrete spa – once it is built, it is a permanent fixture. And if it were to require repair, it could even require a jackhammer!
Comfort is one of Beachcomber’s cornerstones for our clients.
Concrete Spas are more rough to the touch, unlike a Beachcomber Spa. Our spas are well known in the industry and amongst our customers for ultra-comfortable, multi-leveled seating that enhances the bathing experience.
