The original Jacuzzis invented in 1969 were heated by electricity and nothing changed until relatively recently. The trend in later days has been to fit more powerful heaters to spas and hot tubs in order to reduce the heat up time. Our standard range of hot tubs comes with a 3.0kW heater which depending upon the ambient temperature and the size of the tub will take about half an hour to raise the temperature of the tub by 1°C with the cover in place. While this may seem like a long time, especially in the middle of winter, bear in mind that once you have the tub at operating temperature, that temperature can be maintained quite easily. The insulating qualities of Western Red Cedar combined with the 99 mm thick cover turns your tub into a virtual thermos flask and the daily sanitization cycle provides sufficient heating to maintain the temperature at or close to your desired setting.
These tubs come complete with Natural or Propane Gas heater. Gas heating is one of the fastest ways to heat up your tub. Prices start from $15,990. (Starting price is for 1.4m dia tub. Please allow extra $770 for every next size up.)
Hot tubs can be installed indoor or outdoor – pretty much the same way as acrylic spas. So careful consideration should be taken in making your decision. Many tub owners choose oudoor usage to enjoy nature and surroundings. Years of experience show the closer the tub is to the house the more often it is to be used. Most of us are unlikely to have a long walk under the rain in a cold weather to jump in to the tub. And if you do decide to have your tub a distance from the house ensure you have a good all-season path to it with maybe a gazebo or a shed above.
These tubs are specially designed for those people who only want to use tub as a plunge pool. There is no heater, pump, jets, plumbing and filtration to worry about. Great addition to your existing sauna - just dive in to cool down!
Note: As a manufacturer, we can make your tub to fit in to your space by simply adding or removing few staves. Please contact us if you require your tub to be of different size.
