Indulge your senses with the luxury of our outdoor wood fired hot tubs, where timeless relaxation seamlessly blends with cozy warmth. Immerse yourself in the soothing embrace of warm waters, accompanied by the comforting crackle of wood, enhancing every moment of your bathing experience.

What is a Wood Fired Hot Tub? 

Wood fired hot tubs are powered by wood stoves instead of wiring connected to electrical outlets. This makes them a perfect addition to a remote country cabin where electricity is unavailable. Resonating with the charm of traditional saunas, our hot tubs are crafted from thermowoods and premium materials for thermal efficiency to provide you with years of relaxation.

How Does it Work?

We offer two exceptional models for your perfect retreat. Select the timeless charm of the external stove model, or enjoy the efficient heat transfer of the sleek integrated stove design. Both operate by drawing cold water at the bottom, heating it in the wood-fired heater, and circulating it, ensuring an enjoyable hot tub experience. Selected models boast upgraded aeromassage jets, captivating RGB lighting, and enhanced insulation, crafting a personalized sanctuary for your relaxation.

The Benefits of a Wood Fired Hot Tub

Step into the comfort of our premium wood-fired hot tubs, where wellness seamlessly blends with rustic charm. Enjoying a relaxing soak promotes better blood circulation, relieves muscle tension, and creates a therapeutic outdoor experience in your backyard. Maximize health benefits with contrast therapy by pairing your hot tub with a cold plunge tub to revitalize your energy.

Advantages of External Wood Fired Hot Tub Heater

All our wood burning hot tubs are built with thermo-treated wood, for long-lasting durability.  Equipped with features like a protective shield on the funnel, heat-resistant glass, and a German gelcoat internal composite, each model adheres to the highest safety and quality standards

Advantages of Internal Wood Fired Hot Tub Heater

Internal wood-fired hot tub heaters offer discreet, space-saving benefits. Integrated seamlessly, they ensure enhanced heat transfer for efficient warming, preserving the tub's aesthetics with a sleek design. This maximizes seating, allowing a more spacious and comfortable soaking experience.

How Long does a Wood Fired Hot Tub Take to Heat?

The heating time of a wood fired hot tub is influenced by the water heater, tub dimensions, water temperature during filling, and weather conditions. Generally, it takes 1.5-2 hours to reach the desired 100°F. Temperature control involves adjusting the wood quantity and heater air supply.

Choosing the right wood for your hot tub

Every model uses thermo-pine or thermo-birch, ensuring unparalleled durability that surpasses traditional cedar wood. Meticulously crafted, each tub blends seamlessly with your decor, making them a stylish addition to your relaxation haven.

Safety tips for using a wood fired hot tub

Always check the water temperature to prevent burns, and set specific time limits to manage your soak time. For optimal performance and water quality, always ensure you perform regular maintenance on your tub and wood stove to avoid any damage.

How to winterize your hot tub

Winterizing your hot tubs involves first turning it off, removing the filters, and draining the tub and plumbing lines to avoid pipe freezing and breakage. Then clean the hot tub using a soft cloth and gentle products, and securely cover with a clean and dry spa cover to avoid mold growth. Always follow the instructions that come with the manufacturing guide. 

Why combine Wood Fired Hot Tubs with Cold Plunge

While the hot water of wood fired hot tubs is known to provide soothing and relaxation benefits, when sessions are followed by cold water plunges, they provide unique health benefits. When used as part of a long-term wellness routine, it greatly impacts mental and physical health. Consider the invigorating addition of our barrel sauna models for a comprehensive and rejuvenating spa experience.

The Benefits of Combined Use

Alternating between hot and cold water temperatures stimulates blood flow, benefiting circulation. Hot tub heat dilates blood vessels, whereas cold plunges induce constriction. This contrast therapy improves cardiovascular health, reduces inflammation, and enhances mood, lowering injury risk and optimizing the circulatory system.
