Choosing the correct hot tub
When it comes to choosing a Cedar Wood Hot Tub, there are a few things to consider to ensure you make the right choice.
Purpose and end use
What are the most important reasons for you buying a hot tub?
- It's many health benefits and hydrotherapy?
- Relaxation and rejuvenating your body?
The answer to this question will help you decide on the type, size, number of jets and seat layout, etc.
What size cedar hot tub do you want and how much space do you have?
- Intimate 2-seater
- 4 seater for small families or couples to bond
- 6 seater for larger families and sharing quality time with friends
- 8 seater with seating on two levels, for the ultimate spa experience with friends and family
- 10-seater with seating at two different levels, for great get togethers. For smaller groups, or individuals, you can stretch out and float on the upper level, and on the lower level, you can completely immerse yourself.
Heat Source Options
Which heating source do you want?
Electrical heating system
- The latest digital Balboa Electric Spa pack and Heater (power depends on the size of the hot tub).
- 4/5 stage filtration system, depending on the model you buy.
- LCD top-side digital controller.
- Hydromassage jet system, ranging from 2 to 8 jets.
- 2-stage pump.
- 3 Colour LED mood lighting
Air-Source Heat Pump
- The all-new high-technology Balboa Clim8Zone heat pump is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to either heat or cool your hot tub water, depending on the season.
- The Clim8Zone operates effortlessly from the Spatouch3 Panel, allowing you to adjust the temperature - the spa system does the rest.
- Clim8Zone uses less energy to heat the water and to keep it hot.
- It is the only heat pump that can function at freezing temperatures of down to -20 °C.
In particularly cold areas, or if you wish to heat your hot tub quickly, you can install an auxiliary heater to supplement the main heater.
Gas heating system
Energy efficient gas heating options are available but the choice depends on local restrictions and the distance the gas heater needs to be installed from the hot tub.
Wood-fired heating systems
- Depending on the source of your logs, a wood-burner has the potential to be a very cost-effective option to heat your hot tub.
- With no electrical power source requirement, using a wood-fired heat source allows placement of your hot tub just about anywhere you want ie. 'off-grid'.
Hybrid heating systems
Combinations of the above heating systems offer even greater versatility. For instance, a wood-fired heater can be augmented by an electric pump and filtering system, or you could supplement the wood-fired heater with an electric heating system.
