Richard Makepeace, sales manager and construction contract manager for Aquafun Family Pools and Spas in Duncan, accepts the honour of New Dealer of the Year for 2018 from Coast Spas president and CEO Patricia Diamente.

Discover year-round benefits of swim spas or hot tubs – and how easy they can be!

Duncan pool and spa dealer teams up with B.C. hot tub manufacturer to offer superior quality

If you can imagine relaxing with a hot soak after a long day at work, or enjoying an invigorating home workout in the water, late summer can be a great time to investigate a home hot tub or swim spa.

The weather in the Cowichan Valley allows for virtually year-round use of tubs and spas. Planning how to take advantage of that and enjoy their benefits can be as simple as chatting with one of the experts at Aquafun Family Pools and Spas in Duncan.

Not only can their knowledge and experience guide you to choose the right tub or spa for your home, Aquafun’s great relationship with award-winning B.C. manufacturer Coast Spas can help get the best bang for your dollar, says Richard Makepeace, Aquafun’s sales manager/construction contract manager.

“You can have your custom-made spa manufactured in four weeks, to your specifications,” he says.

Why consider a Coast Spas tub?

  • Meeting high standards – Coast Spas have achieved ISO certification, the highest internationally recognized quality standard for manufacturing. Their dedication to building superior products has made them one of Canada’s industry leaders.
  • They’ve got your back – Not only does Aquafun stand behind everything they sell, Makepeace points to Coast Spas’ manufacturing philosophy as another reason to feel peace of mind: “Quality shall, in every case, take precedence over quantity.”
  • Advanced filtration system – Every residential model of Coast tub or spa offers a fast, super-efficient commercial grade filtration system, making maintenance easier!

Aquafun makes having a pool or spa easier!

Letting you relax: If your busy schedule makes it tough to find time for regular upkeep on your pool or spa, let Aquafun handle it. They’ll stop by for weekly, bi-weekly or monthly maintenance, from balancing the water to keeping filters and the tub surroundings cleaned and prepped.

All makes and models serviced: If you need repairs to get your tub or pool running efficiently, Aquafun’s service team can identify problems quickly and get you soaking and swimming again. With a huge inventory of parts, they service any make or model, no matter where you purchased your tub!

Book ahead for winterizing: As the weather gets cooler and outdoor swimming winds down, shutting down your pool makes the to-do list. Aquafun staff quickly put your pool to bed for the season, while conserving the water. Call them to find out more!

Get started on next year’s pool project: There’s many ways to incorporate a backyard swimming pool into your property. Check out some of the options here and find out more with a call or a visit to their showroom on Trans-Canada Highway. You can also follow what’s new on Facebook.
