Everything About Hot Tubs from Wooden Me

Experience True Well-being with Wooden Me’s Hot Tubs

In our hectic modern lives, it’s common to overlook self-care. Luckily, Wooden Me’s hot tubs provide a haven for relaxation and stress relief, promoting your overall wellness.

Benefits of Hot Tubs

Hot tubs efficiently relieve muscle and joint pain by enhancing blood circulation. Additionally, purchasing a hot tub supports better health while offering you a relaxing retreat right in your backyard.

Understanding Hot Tubs

A hot tub is an outdoor bathtub with hot water, adorned with wooden cladding that delivers a genuine outdoor bathing experience.

The History of Hot Tubs

Hot tubs, which originated from Japan’s firewood-heated bathtubs, have become a cultural icon in cold regions such as Scandinavia, where they are also referred to as Finnish hot tubs.

W’s Premium Offerings

DIHC constructs its hot tubs using premium spruce wood, selected for its durability and water-resistant qualities, drawing inspiration from shipbuilding methods.

Customization Options

Opt for wood-based hot tubs to achieve a traditional Nordic ambiance, or select fiberglass/plastic models for additional features such as air bubbles and LED lights. Furthermore, fiberglass options are lighter and simpler to maintain.

Selecting the Right Configuration

Choose between an internal or external stove for your hot tub. Internal stoves are economical and efficient, making them perfect for colder climates. On the other hand, external stoves provide more space and simplify the heating process.

Determining the Ideal Size

The size of your hot tub should align with your available space and intended use. Larger models can host more people, and integrated stove options come in various sizes to cater to different group sizes.









Understanding Hot Tub Sizes and Heater Options

Internal vs. External Heaters: Pros and Cons

Benefits of External Heaters

Increased Space: Wooden Me’s hot tubs with external heaters offer more tub space, allowing you to choose a smaller model while maintaining the same capacity as larger models with internal heaters.

Simplified Heating: External heaters are easier to ignite and control. Their placement outside the tub reduces temperature fluctuations.

Additional Benefits

  • Ø1.6 m: Suitable for 4-6 people
  • Ø2.0 m: Ideal for 6-8 people
  • Ø2.2 m: Suitable for 9-12 people

Choosing Between Materials: Fiberglass, Acrylic, or Wood

Choose According to Your Preferences:

Wood: Delivers a natural, rustic experience. Conversely, fiberglass/acrylic offers modern features like lights and bubbles and is easier to maintain.

Maintenance Tips for Your Wooden Me Hot Tub

Initial Treatment: Apply protective coatings to raw wood before first use. Additionally, perform regular maintenance by cleaning and inspecting the tub every six months to ensure durability and seal integrity.

Water Maintenance Guidelines

Water Lifespan: Replace the water every 3-4 months to maintain cleanliness and hygiene. Additionally, in cold climates, it’s crucial to drain the tubs during sub-freezing temperatures to prevent damage.

Filtration System Essentials

Sand Filter Operation: Functions best within a temperature range of +5 to +35 degrees Celsius. Additionally, for winter storage, disconnect and store the sand filter above freezing temperatures to prevent damage.

Cleaning the Hot Tub

Methods for Maintaining Water Cleanliness:

Hand Cleaning: Use your hands, a soft brush, or a sponge to clean thoroughly without harming the hot tub’s surfaces.

Pressure Washer: Efficiently remove stubborn dirt and algae; adjust the pressure carefully to prevent wood damage.

Drain Pipe Maintenance: Regularly open the drain pipe to ensure smooth water drainage and avoid clogging.

Use of Gentle Cleaners: Choose mild, eco-friendly cleaners or a vinegar-water solution to maintain the hot tub’s integrity.

Managing Water Capacity in a Hot Tub

Water capacity varies depending on the diameter:

  • Ø1.6 meters: Holds about 1000 liters
  • Ø1.8 meters: Accommodates around 1500 liters
  • Ø2 meters: Provides a spacious soak with 1900 liters
  • Ø2.2 meters: Offers an impressive 2300 liters for ultimate relaxation

Preventing Algae Growth in Your Hot Tub

Maintain water quality with these effective measures:

Chlorination: Regularly add chlorine to inhibit algae and maintain water hygiene.

Salt System Consideration: Opt for a salt system compatible with steel 316 to effectively prevent algae growth.

Proper Filtration: Invest in and maintain a high-quality filtration system to remove debris and prevent algae formation.

Regular Water Testing: Monitor pH, alkalinity, and chlorine levels to ensure optimal water conditions and prevent algae growth.

By following these practices, you can ensure a clean and enjoyable hot tub experience while preserving its longevity and natural appeal.

Duration in the Hot Tub

For optimal comfort and safety, it’s recommended to spend 15-30 minutes in the hot tub per session. However, individual tolerance varies, so it’s important to listen to your body. If you experience discomfort or dizziness, exit promptly to maintain a relaxing experience.

Managing Electricity Consumption

Understand the cost implications of running your hot tub:

Electricity Consumption: The heating element significantly impacts energy usage. Consider the heater’s power and its runtime.

Local Electricity Rates: Rates vary and affect overall expenses per kWh. Check with your local provider for accurate pricing.

Efficiency Features: Modern hot tubs include energy-saving options that effectively reduce operational costs.

Heating and Firewood Usage

Ensure optimal heating efficiency and minimal environmental impact:

Heating Time: Generally ranges from 2 to 6 hours, depending on tub size and insulation.

Firewood Usage: Approximately 10-20 kg per hour is recommended. Use dry wood to maximize heat output and minimize smoke emissions.

Choosing Suitable Firewood

Select the right type of wood for effective heating and sustainability:

Wood Types: Use wood logs or wood briquettes for optimal results. Avoid charcoal, as it is not suitable for hot tubs.

Water Temperature Management

Maintain water temperature between 100°F and 104°F (37.8°C to 40°C) for optimal comfort and relaxation:

Personal Preference: Adjust the temperature to suit individual comfort levels for an enjoyable experience.
