First of all, let`s cover the mechanism of how do wood burning hot tubs work. The warmth comes with fire so apparently in most cases a wood-fired hot tub heater is necessary. There are a few main types of heaters: mounted internally or externally. They can be made of stainless steel of various grades. Not to forget that an electric heater is an option as well.
The principal factor is gravity. Warm water flows upwards while cold one gets down. This water movement is constant when using a wood-fired hot tub. Heaters that are used for hot tubs are designed for warmth replacement. For example, heaters that are mounted outside the hot tub has two connections. One connection is higher than another. The lower one is designed to release warm water which is taken through the higher one. This cycle is constant while heating water.
(1) Check the electricity supply. Jets are connected to the water or air pump which runs on electricity. (2) Inspect the water pump, it can malfunction like any other electrical parts. (3) Check the piping if there are no leaks.
Woodfire hot tub with jets?
One must note that SPA equipment used for wooden hot tubs run by electricity. We offer two types of SPA units that can be referred to as jets. The first one is the air bubble massage system. The system has 12 jets, powered by 220V. Air runs through the jets.
The second SPA unit is a hydro massage system. The system has 6 jets, powered by 220 V. Water runs through the jets.
Air massage – hydro massage – what are the differences?
Air bubble massage system – jets installed in the walls. The massage effect is weaker compared with the hydro massage. It is mostly used for relaxation. Air runs through the pipes therefore in winter it is easier to maintain.
The massage with water jets will be stronger, the power can be adjusted. Important to drain the water from the pipes in winter unless scheduled water circulation is used.
