Health benefits of the Wooden Hot Tub are determined by the wood species from which it is made of. Each wood has its own positive effects on the human body. It is quite difficult to highlight something as better or worse over the others. Briefly, we can say the following:
Spruce Wooden Hot tubs. Spruce is one of the traditional types of wood for saunas and hot tubs. Along with unique physical parameters, it has a lot of medicinal properties. With the spruce Wooden hot tub, you combine comfort and health together! It improves metabolism, cleanses the body, restores energy, and improves the mood.
Thermo wood Hot tubs. Thermo wood is also famous for its eco-friendliness, high wear resistance and durability. The Thermo wood hot tub is free from all kind of rottings or molds forming on it. The greatest advantage of Thermo wood is its ability to retain from any deformation due to temperature changes and moisture. The thermo wood hot tub is durable, a little resinous and, due to less drying out, consistently maintains shape and size.
Larch Wooden Hot tubs. Larch will improve your mood and raise the overall tone of your body. Asthmatics will also be very happy with water treatments in a Larch Wooden Hot Tub because it significantly improves the condition of their respiratory system. This contributes to the normalization of pressure and overall relaxation of the body.
Both variants have advantages and disadvantages:
An internal heater often has more charisma and more atmosphere as you sit close to the fire. And on top of everything else an internal heater is cheaper.
An external heater, however, has more practical advantages once you need to clean the tub or remove the ashes. And of course, more space for people. In terms of heat up time: top models of external heater heat up the water faster than an internal one.
Assuming average posture, you can expect the following:
An Internal heater: 1,6 m tub for 3-4 people, 1,8 m tub for 5-6 people, 2,0 m tub for 6-8 persons, 2,2 m tub for 7-9 persons, 2,4 m tub for 8-10 persons.
An External heater: 1,6 m tub for 4-6 people, 1,8 m tub for 7-8 people, 2,0 m tub for 8-10 persons, 2,2 m tub for 9-11 persons, 2,4 m tub for 10-12 persons.
It depends on how often you are planning to use a Wooden Hot tub . If you don’t use any cleaning products, we recommend to empty it just after hot tubbing. In case you use the Wood-fired Hot Tub on an frequent basis, it will be better to connect a good sand filter to your Hot Tub. The filter removes substances and fats from the water. You can use chemical agents, which are used to clean home pools against algae and bacteria. The dosage of the chemical agents should be used in accordance with guidelines.
In principle, stainless steel is more durable than aluminum. If you overheat a stove without water, but notice it on time, you will have a chance to save just a stainless steel stove. Other things being equal, Stainless steel stoves will be broken later than aluminium ones. Our aluminium stoves are painted and look more attractive in comparison with stainless steel stoves. The second important advantage of aluminium stoves is faster heating water. It is worth nothing, the heating rate depends on water volume and such characteristics as fuel, the ambient temperature etc. All our heaters will heat up your Wood-fired Hot Tub within 2 hours on average.
An external heater has a special construction that is why water heating is faster. The heater can be easily connected to the hot tub with 2 rubber hoses and clamps. Once you fill the tub, the stove will be filled automatically. The heater has a double wall so the water will surround the fire pit entirely. As a result, it will heat up the water over a large surface. Hot water will rise and return back to the Tub via the upper connection. Via the lower connection cold water on its turn will be sucked into the stove.
We do not recommend to leave the Wood-fired Tub filled during persistent frost periods. If the hot tub is not used during the winter, drain water out of the Wood-fired Hot Tub and stove. Always leave the drain valve open. Do not let the water freeze in a hot tub, as frozen water will damage the fiberglass bath and stove. Therefore, during winter period we advise the following:
- Use an electric heater with a sand filter (when filled). This combination will enable the water not to freeze;
- Use an Insulated cover;
- Disconnect the stove and close the flanges with the 2 plugs, as empty stove helps the Wood-fired Hot Tub to lose temperature.
- We also advise to order Wood-fired Hot Tubs with polyurethane foam, in order to slow down water cooling.
The warm-up time of a Wooden Hot Tub depends on the volume of water to be heated and the capacity of the heater. Our Wood-fired tubs have the volume from 700 liters to 3 600 liters, and our stoves have at least a capacity of 24-35 KW! This results in a heating up time of 1- 3 hours only to a comfortable body temperature.
Thermo Wood is a wood that has been modified by steam and high heat threatment (> 180 °C). Thanks to this process most of negativeness of the wood is minimized and abolished. This process makes the physical properties of timber better, improves durability and provides an excellent colour. We use a high-quality Thermo Wood from spruce for our Wooden Hot Tubs. The Thermo Wood Hot Tub is durable, little resinous, and due to less drying out, consistently maintains shape and size. This wood is resistant to the mould, bacteria and bugs.
Principally, Thermo Wood does not require further maintenance but will get soon a grey colour. If you wish to sustain the original dark color, we suggest using special tar oil. Also, we recommend to prevent wood from drying. Tip! Keep 10-15 cm of water in your Wooden Hot tub and cover it with a good lid in hot summer time. Change this water at least once a week.
