Why beachcomber


An Energy-efficient and
Environmentally-friendly company

We could all use a little extra energy. This is why so many people love Beachcomber Hot Tubs – the hydrotherapeutic jets give us that little boost when we need it most. But most people only want to use the absolute minimum energy that's required, which is why we take key measures to ensure maximum massage jetting therapy, proper insulation and low energy consumption for low-cost operation. The end result – maximum warmth with minimum energy.

Beachcomber also develops and uses ecologically-friendly products, embracing natural enzymes to treat hot tub water. Our proprietary Care Free System is an easy to use program, requiring fewer products, less maintenance, and less demand on nature’s resources.

What affects energy consumption of a hot tub?

About 75% of the total hot tub energy consumption is used to heat or maintain water temperature

Heat from the hot tub transfers to the cool air in the environment. The warmer the water temperature or the cooler the air temperature, the more energy is consumed. Beachcomber is focused on maximizing insulation to retain heat, and prevent loss of heat – making Beachcomber Hot Tubs one of the most energy-efficient hot tubs for all seasons.

Frequency of HOT TUB Usage

Using a hot tub frequently notably increases energy consumption because of the increased heat loss through the surface of the water when the cover is off. To optimize energy consumption even during usage, Beachcomber uses the most energy efficient pumps and heating technology.

Frequency and duration of filter cycles

This consumes 20-25% of total hot tub energy consumption. Minimizing filter cycle frequency and duration will reduce overall energy consumption. The Energy Saver Management System allows you the flexibility to adjust your heating modes to reduce power usage and optimize filter cycles, while the 24/7 Hush Pump System™ which is dedicated to self-cleaning and filtration, keeps your hot tub water warm, clean, and clear with extremely low energy consumption.
