Q. How much does it weigh?
A.The entire shipping weight of a 6' x 3' kit is approx. 675 lbs including crate. The tub minus the stove and benches can be easily carried by 4 people.
Q. How many gallons does it hold?
A. 6' x 3' tub holds 450 gallons, 6' x 4' tub holds 600 gallons.
Q. How do you control the temperature?
A. Start out with a roaring fire until you get close to temperature, say 95F, then reduce the size of the fire until it reaches 102 F - 106F. When you get to tub temperature keep a small fire going. The fire can also be slowed down by adjusting the draft. It is better to control temperature by fire size than by closing the damper because a build of up creosote can result. It is also easy to cool down the tub just by adding cold water.
Q. How long does it take to heat up?
A. It takes 3 1/2 hours to go from 40F to tub temperature 105F. This is four time as fast as a conventional spa heater. The 6' x 4' tub takes a little longer.
Q. How much wood does it take?
A. A moderate size wheel barrow load of DRY wood.
Q. Can we use salt water?
A. Yes. The stove is made of salt water certified aluminum, and all hardware included with the tub is non-corrosive. The cedar is not affected by the salt.
Q. Does the tub come with a warranty?
A. Your total satisfaction is our goal. The stoves have a 1 year and the tubs a 5 year guarantee on materials and workmanship. Through high quality materials and craftsmanship we have built a lot of life into our tubs and stoves and normal life expectancy is 20 to 25 years.
