MADE FROM CANADIAN CLEAR RED CEDAR
Our Electric Tubs are made of clear Canadian Clear Red Cedar which is a close cousin to the traditional cypress wood used in Japan. Red Cedar has the distinct advantage of being naturally resilient to decay and bacteria. It also is known for its high insulating value. The pleasant aromatherapy of cedar heightens the experience! Our tubs use an architectural stainless steel strap system which allows the tub to naturally expand and contract with out worrying about the wood splitting.
ON-SITE ASSEMBLY PROCESS
All our hot tubs kits are designed with the DIY customer in mind. Customers with basic handyperson skills can assemble the wood hot tub body in 3-4 hours over a two-day period. We recommend spreading the assembly over two days to allow the liner "set" overnight before finishing the interior componets of the tub. A typical install would be 2 hours on Day 1, set the liner overnight and another 2 hours on Day 2. In order to assemble the main tub body, you will need a basic set of tools including a level, a measuring tape, a Phillips-head driver drill, a pair of adjustable crescent wrenches, vise grips, and a mallet. We also recommend having a rachet strap on hand to assist with tightening the bands.
For our electric hot tubs, we recommend our customers work with a professional plumber and electrian to set up their water heating and circulation system. More experienced DIY customers have the option to plumb the system themselves, however this is a more challenging and time consuming step. Regardless of your skill level, you should always work with a licensed electrician on the electrical connection.
HOT TUB LINER INCLUDED AS STANDARD
Our 100% virgin vinyl hot tub liner is designed specially to fit with a minimal appearance that preserves the rustic and timeless beauty of a cedar tub. There are numerous benefits asscoiated with a vinyl liner. Firstly, lined cedar tubs are much easier to clean, sanitize and maintain. The liner eliminates a host of issues like leaking, tannin leaching and wood-rot. Liners also make the tub more comfortable to sit in, as there will be no rough edges or splinters. Another important benefit of the liner is that it provides the option of adding a layer of high-performance insulation between the liner and wood. The insulation more than doubles the R-value of wood alone, meaning your water will stay warmer much longer.
Our liners are constructed from 100% Virgin Vinyl, custom designed and computer cut for your hot tub. Formulated to fight off mold, mildew, the fading effects of the sunlight, heat and chemicals.
Please note, reflective insulation and insulation tape is not included and should be sourced locally.
HYDROQUIP HEATMAX ELECTRIC HEATER
The Hydro-Quip HEATMAX series heater is the most efficient hot tub heater in a box. When all you need is heat, this is the most practical and user friendly unit in the industry. 5.5kW OR 11kW for new and existing applications where a full high flow free standing heater is needed. Please refer to table below for heat up times.
The primary components of our electric hot tub system (the heater and circulation pump) are individually UL listed. However, the Redwood Outdoors electric hot tub heating system is not UL listed as a complete kit. We recommend checking your local codes prior to purchasing, as your locality may require that pool and hot tub equipment skids be UL listed as a complete unit.
We ship our cedar hot tubs to everywhere in the United States to eco hot tub lovers who enjoy a relaxing soak in the full presence of nature!

I love being "that guy with the hot tub" haha! I am the envy of my neighbors. For real, the tub is amazing. High quality cedar wood, super efficient heater, and simple to build. All around great.
Great customer service! I had some questions about assembly, and Steve was able to help me right away. Now that it's built, I'm using the tub almost every day.
