What is a wooden or a wood burning hot tub? Get to know them!
To start, one should always think of a wood type. Wood-fired hot tubs can be produced from Siberian spruce, larch, thermowood, oak or red cedar. Thermowood`s origin is spruce processed in high temperature. As a result, it enables to withstand harsh climate conditions and minimize the humidity caused deformations. Wooden hot tubs can come with a liner which sits inside the tub. They can be made of polypropylene or fiberglass. Polypropylene liners are available in blue, grey, white or black. Fiberglass liners are available in any of your desired colours from RAL (ralcolor.com). Fiberglass liners are usually limited in diameter since they are made out of preowned forms. Polypropylene is usually welded, therefore, there is practically no limitation in terms of sizes and forms. There are many choices when it comes to selecting the heater. The most popular selection is the snorkel (internal) stainless steel heater. Also, there is a wide selection of external wood-fired or electric heaters for hot tubs. The difference is that the external heaters don’t take space inside and, therefore, more persons can enjoy the wood-fired hot tub at the same time. We do offer heaters prepared in 430 or 316 stainless steel. 316 stainless steel is necessary if chlorine, water salts or any other water treatment solutions are used. Last but not least is an electric heater. It is quite a comfortable solution where wood usage is not the case. Also, one can combine and install both wood-fired and electric heater. Wood-fired hot tubs can be equipped with 4 types of stairs. They differ in size and design. To see the designs we offer, please select the particular model of wood-fired hot tubs and click 3D section next to the description. Wood-fired hot tubs can be equipped with wooden, polypropylene or fiberglass or leather lids. Nature of the lid depends on the type of wood-fired hot tub. We offer 3 different types of benches, however, it very much depends on the model of the wood-fired hot tub. While the wooden hot tubs will have only wooden benches, wood-fired hot tubs with polypropylene liner can be built with wooden and polypropylene benches. Since polypropylene is an artificial material, it would last definitely longer.
Wooden hot tubs with jets and more!
Led lights can make the experience of bathing even better. We can install as many as you like but the most popular option is 3-4 units. The led bulb has 5 different colours which can be changed with the help of remote controller fitted to the tub`s wall. Walls of wooden hot tubs must be insulated. This massage system comes with 6 jets which are already pre-installed into the walls of the wooden hot tubs with fibreglass liners. Wooden hot tubs with massage systems must be insulated. Air massage system comes with 12 jets. It can be used together with hydro massage system or separately. The main difference between these two massage systems is that the hydro massage is much stronger and the water current is stimulating the body. Air bubble system, on the other hand, makes you feel more relaxed and tension free. Air bubble jets are installed into the bottom of the wooden hot tubs. In terms of water maintenance, there are no many options to choose from. Either one uses water treatment chemicals or filtration systems. We do recommend filtration systems since chemicals can harm the body and various parts of the wooden hot tubs. A full filtration set combines a sand filter system which cleans the organic particles and a UV filter which kills the bacteria by illuminating the water with UV rays. When it comes to energy saving, insulation option is a must. Wall, bottom and lid insulation is necessary for wooden hot tubs. The energy-saving is tremendous, the water temperature drop during the cold night is only 2-3 degrees. Only 2-3 bags of wood are enough to fully heat the tub. Lastly, water fill and drain should be foreseen. Stainless steel tap with a valve which enables to drain dirty water more easily. Every model of wood-fired hot tubs comes with a loose hose connector (a plug with the stopper) which is installed at the bottom.
Pellet-burning option introduced in 2019 Innovation by TimberIN
Although it’s improbable that numerous individuals would consider wooden hot tubs as being “green” items, a portion of the things are unquestionably eco-friendlier than others. Such is the situation with our smart pellet-fired hot tub, that is now being offered in Europe.
Developed at Lithuania’s Kaunas University of Technology, the wooden hot tub warms the water by consuming wood pellets, rather than the more regularly utilized split logs. It is being said that these pellets are a more affordably available, yet they likewise produce higher temperatures in less time, in addition, they emanate less smoke, debris and carbon. Also, the pellets are said to be simpler to deal with than logs. The tub’s inside stockpiling compartment can hold enough of them for a few hot-tubbing sessions.
Using an iOS/Android cell phone application, clients start by setting the water temperature that they want. The wooden hot tub reacts by moving a fitting measure of pellets from the capacity compartment into its ignition chamber. As a result, clients don’t need to reach in and hazard by taking care of any blazing particles themselves.
As the pellets are consumed, sensors measure the water temperature at both the top and base of the wooden hot tub. When the required temperature reaches the set level, the application notifies the user. If the temperature in the wooden hot tub drops by 5 or 8 degrees (client can change this temperature dropping level), the heater would turn on again. Pellets would keep on being step by step moved into the burning chamber, so as to keep up the temperature.
The pellet-burning wooden hot tubs have been available for a quarter of a year and are at present accessible in Germany, Denmark, France, Norway, England and Ireland. Its warming framework is currently being changed for use in outside saunas.

What is a wood burning hot tub?
A wood-burning hot tub is the latest trend from Scandinavia and the Baltic area and is also very popular in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. But what exactly is a hot tub and what sets it apart from a classic wooden hot tub? The wooden hot tub was a tradition in Scandinavia and the northern countries over several thousand years. This wooden tub filled with hot water has only recently become an absolute trend in Central Europe. In addition, it is ideal for a social evening useful, as several people (depending on the version up to 8). The water in the wooden tub is heated by a special stove and brought to the right temperature.
How do you heat a wooden hot tub?
In order to bring the water to the right temperature, a small wood stove or an electric heater is required, which is included in the delivery. The wood-burning stove of the wellness royal model is thereby completely integrated into the tub. This is designed so that most of the heat from the fire is channelled into the water and almost no heat energy is lost. It is enormously important that you only heat when there is water in the barrel, otherwise heating with no water could melt the liner or even catch fire.
So if you have filled the water in the wooden hot tub to the point marked, you can easily heat up the stove. The stove only gets as hot as the water itself. The only thing that gets hotter is the oven door and the fireplace of the stove. You should therefore not touch this. Drywood is ideal for heating. Hardwood has an ideal calorific value for the stove of your wood-burning hot tub.
In addition, there are oils and solutions that you can put into the water, this helps with the relaxation and can also be healing as well as cleansing for your skin and your body. Of course, there are different variations for every wellness fan – depending on your own preferences, you can order various accessories from us in the shop and set up your bath individually. For ultimate relaxation right in your own garden or on the terrace.
Wood fired hot tubs are a less expensive way to enjoy hot springs in the garden. They have a long tradition in Scandinavia. We will discuss the different types of hot tubs and how to heat the water in them.
Wood burning hot tubs have a millennia-old tradition in the Scandinavian countries. These wood fired hot tubs made of solid wood that are filled with water and heated by a wood stove. The stove can be installed inside or outside, or sometimes integrated into the structure of the hot tub. Alternatively, there are also hot tubs with an electric heater, so-called – electric hot tubs.
There is space for two to eight people in a conventional hot tub. It is normally is accessible via a ladder.
Compared to an outdoor whirlpool or jacuzzi, you can expect less comfort and design with a wood fired hot tub. Those who like it rustic will clearly prefer the hot tub. Another advantage: wood burning hot tubs are usually cheaper to buy and more environmentally friendly.
What is there to know before buying a wood fired hot tub
What makes a good hot tub?
When choosing a hot tub, you should pay attention to several factors:
• Size: Relaxation. The hot tub should therefore be spacious enough so that all guests can comfortably find space in it. At the same time, the tub should not be unnecessarily large, since it uses a lot of water that needs to be heated. So think in advance how many people will use the hot tub regularly.
• Material: Do not save on material. A good hot tub is traditionally made of solid wood, usually spruce, larch or thermowood. There are also models made of plastic, but they have nothing to do with the original hot tub. The straps around the bin are made of durable stainless steel.
• Equipment: A ladder, bench and wooden lid should be included in the scope of delivery or can be combined directly in the shop. Only these accessories make the hot tub complete. The lid in particular is a must so that the hot tub heats up faster and the heat is stored longer.
Wood fired hot tubs: what types are there?
According to tradition, wood burning hot tubs are made from solid wood staves. These are held together by stainless steel straps.
One usually has the choice between spruce, larch and thermo wood. Spruce and larch wood are the cheaper variants, but they also require more maintenance. The wood should be treated with glaze several times a year.
Hot tub stove: inside or outside?
Hot tubs are traditionally heated using a wood stove. There are two types of construction: the inner wood stove and the outer wood stove. In both cases you add the firewood from the outside. The smoke goes up a long chimney.
Hot tub with inside – snorkel stove
The snorkel stove is usually made of stainless steel and is mounted inside the hot tub. This has the advantage that the heat is transferred directly to the water. Disadvantage: one can lose valuable space in the hot tub. You can only start and use the inside stove while there is water in the hot tub. Otherwise your hot tub threatens to go up in flames.
Hot tub with outside stove
The outdoor stove is outside of the tub. It consists of two contours and in the middle, the water flows past and is heated. This design is less efficient than the inside stove and takes longer to heat up. You also need more space next to the tub. An outdoor stove has the advantage that you have the entire tub’s interior to sit in.
Alternatively: Electrically heated hot tub – electric hot tub
In addition to the classic design with a wood stove, there are also hot tubs that can be operated electrically. The heating time is normally longer but the heat can be regulated more easily. On the other hand, there is of course the high-power consumption, which can cost a lot of money.
Wood fired hot tubs: planning and installation
Before you can start using your hot tub, there are a few more things to consider:
• Location: It is important to have a level, solid surface so that the hot tub is stable. Water should also drain quickly, and the air should be able to circulate well under it. Lawn is less suitable. Gravel or crushed stone are best suited as a foundation.
• First use: Freshly delivered, the wood of the hot tub is still dry. It must first swell before you can fully enjoy it. Fill it about 10 centimetres with water and let the tub stand overnight. Work your way up piece by piece until the entire hot tub is filled. As soon as the staves can absorb the moisture well enough, the tub is ready to enjoy.
• Heating: Dry hardwoods are suitable as firewood. Softwoods have the disadvantage that they develop resin, which can produce more soot. Do not put chipboard, paper or waste in the oven. It takes an average of two to three hours to heat up. When using the inside stoves, make sure that the tub is filled with water.
• Maintenance and care: Change the water only when necessary. Usually it is enough every few months, provided you always cover the barrel and using water treatment solutions. The installation of a filter system is recommended, especially if several people use the hot tub regularly. The filters help to minimize the amount of chemicals required but they do not replace them. Simply clean the hot tub with curd soap after changing the water.
Finnish hot tub
Finnish hot tubs are usually practical and simple. Dive in, heat up or refresh – that’s all you need to relax in the far north. The price for a hot tub in fin design is also better.
You can get a barrel with a diameter of 180 centimeters made of Finnish thermo wood from just under 1,500 euros.
Swedish hot tub
The Swedes are more luxurious than the Finns, at least when it comes to the world of hot tubs. Based on the age-old tradition, modern Swedish hot tubs combine rustic elements with ergonomic seats and heat-treated thermowood.
What are the advantages of a wooden hot tub?
Wellness and relaxation: A wooden hot tub, like an outdoor whirlpool, is suitable for those who value wellness. After work you can let go of stress, calm down, relax and recharge yourself.
Usable all year round: It can be used practically all year round. In summer it is filled with cold water and offers a welcome cooling off from the heat. In winter, full of hot water, you can relax in it wonderfully and maybe even invite friends to a wellness day.
Wood flair: In addition, hot tubs are traditionally made of wood and make a very aesthetic and valuable impression in the garden.
Space-saving: You only need relatively little space and little water compared to a pool. A wooden hot tub can also be set up in a small garden, possibly even on a terrace.
Low costs and little maintenance: it requires little maintenance and care. Both the acquisition costs and the maintenance are cheaper than a classic outdoor whirlpool, which costs around 4,000-5,000 euros. Good hot tubs are available from 1,500 euros (with a diameter of 2 m). The water in a classic hot tub is heated with a stove, not with electricity. This saves costs and is environmentally friendly since renewable raw materials (firewood) are used.
Increases the value of the property: In addition, a wood fired hot tub is a good investment that increases the value of the house or property.
What are the disadvantages of a wood fired hot tub?
No water massage jets: The water in a wood fired hot tub is as hot as in an outdoor whirlpool, but it doesn’t bubble because no air is drawn into it. There are also no massage jets here that can relieve shoulder, neck and back tension. However, there is a bubble system available as an accessory for certain models. A special pump blows air jets into the water through special valves, creating a pleasant massage effect. However, this is not as strong as with real massage jets with water jets.
Not for swimming: In contrast to a pool, a wood fired hot tub is not suitable for swimming.
Can only be used after it has swelled up: In addition, a wood fired hot tub cannot be used immediately. New tubs have to swell first. It also takes a certain amount of time to heat the water.
Tips and advice for wood fired hot tubs
Does a wood burning hot tub need a foundation?
No, it is not necessary. Of course, you can use a concrete surface as a parking space, but a flat surface is usually sufficient. Only 2 things are important: The base must be firm enough to support the weight of the hot tub so that it does not tip over. Second, the water must be able to run off well because the wood can rot quickly due to the accumulated moisture. Therefore, the hot tub should stand on a layer of gravel or crushed stone. It must be ensured that the air can circulate under the hot tub, approx. 5 cm above the ground.
What is there to know before using a wood fired hot tub?
The hot tub cannot be used immediately. A little water always runs out at the beginning. This is because the wood is still dry. The barrel is first filled with water approx. 10 cm and left to stand overnight. The boards on the floor absorb the moisture and expand. Then you can slowly drain the water in 10 cm steps. The staves absorb water and this closes gaps and crevices and the hot tub becomes tight.
How is the stove used and how long does it take to heat up?
The stove is fired with wood. Dry logs that have been split into small pieces should be used. The inner stove may only be used if the surface of the stove is covered with water at least 3 cm, otherwise, the hot tub can be damaged. A standard hot tub normally takes 2-3 hours to heat up. Depending on the size, outside temperature, and installation location, heating to the optimum temperature (35 ° C – 38 ° C) takes different lengths of time: between 1.5 and 4 hours. The 4 hours mainly relate to winter. The heating time can be shortened by stirring the water with a paddle twice an hour while it is heating up. The hot tub may only be emptied when the oven has cooled down completely. The ashes must be removed at regular intervals. A shovel with a long handle is best for this.
Which firewood is best for heating the water?
In principle, you can use all types of wood, but hardwoods such as birch or beech are particularly suitable. They have a particularly high calorific value, burn for a long time, and leave little residue behind. Softwood such as spruce or pine, on the other hand, has a lot of resin. This creates large amounts of soot and ash. Incidentally, it is forbidden to burn remnants of euro pallets, chipboard, or rubbish in the oven. Not only does this damage the environment, but it also produces toxic gases.
Does the water need disinfectant?
No, it is not mandatory. If the hot tub is used often and by several people, a filter system (cartridge filter or sand filter) is recommended as an accessory. If one wants to keep water inside the hot tub longer, water treatment chemicals might be needed.
If you want to clean the water with disinfectants, you should make sure that the pH value of the bathing water is in the optimal range (between 7.2 and 7.6) so that the cleaning agents can work. In addition, the correct PH value is also important for the lifespan of the hot tub. When using chlorine, one should use small chlorine tablets with a maximum weight of 15 to 20 mg. If an oxygen granulate is added to the water, it combats the formation of algae and fungi and keeps the water cleaner for longer.
What maintenance and care does a wood fired hot tub need?
The water is only changed when necessary. To drain the water, a drain tap is attached to the underside of the hot tub, similar to a sink. An external water drainage pipe is also available for installation. If the water does not contain any chemicals, it can be used as irrigation water in the garden. When the barrel is empty, the inside can be scrubbed with mild detergents such as curd soap. Under no circumstances should aggressive chemicals be used. It may also be possible to clean it thoroughly with a high-pressure syringe. Such devices also work well outside. The wood-burning hot tub made entirely of wood must not be completely empty for a very long time. When the wood dries out, it shrinks. This creates gaps and crevices and the barrel leaks. Exceptions are the winter times with very low temperatures.
What should you watch out for when using it in winter?
When using the wood fired hot tub in winter, you should prevent the water from freezing over at very low temperatures. This means that the water must not be left unmonitored or unheated. One can e.g. put a few styrofoam units in the water. When the water freezes, it expands and compresses the styrofoam instead of damaging the wall of the hot tub. Or you can use a heating cable to counteract the drop in temperature and thus prevent the formation of ice.
How do you get the wood fired hot tub through the winter?
According to experts, in periods with very low temperatures below freezing point or if the hot tub is not used for a long time in winter, the water should be drained first, then the hot tub washed and dried. The barrel is covered with the wooden lid and stored that way. The ball valve should be left open to avoid damage from freezing. The sand filter system, if used, should be removed. If the hot tub has an external stove, it is either removed or the water must be completely drained it.
