Larch is a strong, durable, rot-resistant wood which has a superior ability to neutralise bacteria. This makes it ideal for our hot tubs.
Furthermore, aromatherapists hold larch in high regard for its relaxing and revitalising properties. When heated by water it releases phytoncides which clear congested airways.
Larch is a high density wood. There are many buildings still standing that were built from larch more than one thousand years ago.
We only use the best part of the timber - heartwood. All timber is taken from locally sourced larch stands and is FSC®-certified, so you can be assured the timber is responsibly produced.
Our timber hot tubs have several advantages over typical Jacuzzi or spa tubs:
No plumbing or electrical connections are required. Simply fill with water and light its wood burning stove. The 28kW stove takes around 4 hours to reach a bathing temperature of 38-42°C.
There is a handy stirring oar built into the design of the lid; for moving the water around a few times to aid the heating process.
When you've finished using your hot tub, open the drain plug or attach a hose to the handy fitting to water your garden.
Running costs for traditional tubs can be around £50 per month, and chemicals need to be added to the water to keep it hygienic. There are no maintenance costs with ours: just feed it with wood whenever you want to relax.
