Hot Tub Operation

The video below describes how to operate the internal wood-fired stove.

It is difficult to say exactly as this will depend on hot tub size, location, local electricity rates, and set temperature, however, most people find it adds $2 -$3 per day to their energy bill to operate their hot tub.

We recommend adding a thermal cover to your order as this will reduce your heat loss, meaning you will spend less on heating your tub!

Start out with a roaring fire until you get close to the target temperature, then reduce the size of the fire until it reaches 102 F - 104F. When you get to tub temperature keep a small fire going. The fire can also be slowed down by adjusting the draft. It is better to control temperature by fire size than by closing the damper because a build of up creosote can result. It is also easy to cool down the tub just by adding cold water.

If you have an electric hot tub, the tub's temperature can be set using the heater.

The temperature for the hot tub water can be adjusted directly on the heating unit itself. So you can set this to your preferred tubbing temperature or to the maximum which is 104F.

The best method for draining the hot tub is using a submersible pump. Submersible pumps are inexpensive and can be purchased online or at pool and spa equipment stores.

If you do not have access to electricity, water can also be siphoned out of the hot tub.

The opening at the top of the stove is 12” x 8”, any logs need to be small enough to fit through the opening to get into the stove.

The stove body is 12” wide and 18” long; the top of the stove has two levels, one higher end where wood is inserted, and one lower end where the chimney comes out. The higher end of the stove is 25” and the lower end of the stove is 15” high and at the lowest. The chimney is 85” tall.
