WOOD FIRED HOTTUB


Original schematic Wood fired hot tub
1998
My parents have some beautiful land in Amherst County that they have been fixing up. My younger brother, Michael, and I designed an elliptical hot tub that would be powered by a wood stove. Freshman year when I came home for Thanksgiving, he surprised me with a completed tub! Opening a valve to fill it from an up-hill pond and building a fire in the submerged wood stove will make the tub ready in just three hours. No chemicals are needed because after a day's soaking, you open the dump valve and it drains into a lower pond.
