Wood hot tub steps
Wood hot tub base
Under the hot iron tub pour a plate of 100-150 mm with reinforcement of 12 mm on a sand-gravel pillow.
The wood fired hot tub is placed on a temporary support (bricks, blocks, pallets) at a height of 670 mm above the concrete level. You can make a small slope from the furnace so that the splashed water does not fall on the fire.
We put four channels under a board of cast iron tub, we weld among themselves a strip or armature. We put a plate on the concrete under the channel. Take out the temporary resistance.
Wood hot tub stove
Under hot iron tub, fireclay bricks are laid on concrete on a 113 mm rib, and the walls of the kiln are built in a circle from below. The height of the combustion chamber is 550 mm.
The chimney should be made of 200 mm pipe and lined with brick. It can be removed at an angle of up to 4 m.
Doors are installed and facing materials are arranged. You can see how our other customers did it in the Gallery.
What you need to pay attention to
Steps, coverings around the Hot iron Tub should not be slippery. Avoid sharp corners !!!
A place to change, a place to rest, a shower, a bath or a bucket of cold water.
Chimney 2.5 m high and higher at a distance of up to 4 meters from wood hot tub. On a chimney it is necessary to establish a draft regulator (gate).
Filling with water
To fill with water, install a decorative faucet. Be sure to arrange a “bottom point” where the water will drain from the system when the tank is idle in the cold.
It is necessary to take into account where the splashed water will flow so that it does not flood the furnace, in winter it should not accumulate and freeze.
Regulation of combustion
It is realized by means of the draft regulator (gate) and closing of a hot tub wood stove door. It is possible to install two regulators of air supply on 100 mm. Then the door can be permanently closed.
