In this article, we will cover: wood types; heaters and main accessories.

Wood types of wood fired hot tubs


Spruce is a great material that you can use inside your home or even outside. This type of wood is perfect for creating quality wooden hot tubs. Some of the benefits are that spruce resists shrinking and it will also retain its shape. There’s no need to worry about warping either, which is a very common problem for a lot of wooden hot tubs. Not only that, but this is one of those wood types that don’t need a lot of treatment.

You still need to take care of it from time to time, and it will last for years too. On top of that, spruce has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, not to mention it’s recommended by aromatherapy experts. That helps immensely, and it brings in front of all the efficiency you need while also keeping costs low.

Spruce hot tub


You can go with larch for your wood fired hot tub if you want a material that lasts for a very long time. The wood is very robust and it withstands the test of time. The outlook is very similar to spruce. On top of that, it has moisture resistance and it also helps you eliminate bacteria naturally. It’s a great material when it comes to revitalizing and relaxing you. In fact, it has phytoncides that help you clear congested airways. You can also use it against neuroses, hypertension, and migraines, which is something you must take into consideration as much as you can.

Since larch has a high density, that makes it extremely sturdy and durable. On top of that, you also have an internal stove with this type of hot tub, which will bring you a variety of customization options. There are even matching steps, chimney and heater components, a standard drain, as well as the hot tub with its own heater fencing, straps, and seats. It’s a great package and a rather affordable one, considering the value you get for the money.

Larch is a very good option for wooden hot tubs with inside liners like fiberglass or polypropylene. However, since larch is extremely sturdy and dense, it expands and shrinks quite much, therefore, these deformations will result in continuous leakage in completely natural wooden hot tubs (without liners).

Thermo wood

Thermo wood is the most popular wood choice when it comes to building a hot tub. It has this brownish outlook. The wood is usually spruce but treated in high temperatures. The inside humidity of thermo wood is extremely low therefore the deformations will be minimum. It will last longer and will bring the quality that you always expected. Thermo wood is used very widely including various terraces, saunas, buildings etc..

WPC composite decoration for hot tubs

Despite the type of wood used for hot tubs, one should still maintain it. Wood should be oiled at least twice per year. WPC composite, on the other hand, does not require any maintenance. It is quite a popular choice and we produce wood-fired hot tubs made with WPC decoration. So one should decide either for a more natural option or for the material which would last for ages.
