4 man wood hot tubby Admin
Oct 2013

Message: HI I am putting together a 4 man wood hot tub purchased from you guys last year. we have just completed the "test fit" and everything is in place, my question is, can i stain the outside of the tub, before it gets taken apart and then re-assembled in its proper resting place, rather than staining it after its been put back together in the final stages.. is there a difference when i do this. i bought Sikkens Cetol translucent finish stain for decking. thanks toni

Yes you can do the staining. Deck stain is probably okay. Dieter

is there something better i should buy with regards to the stain, i thought this was the one you recommend.

Toni, sorry I  just read your message again, from my desktop,  Likely the product you bought is Cetol 1 or Cetol SRD both of which work well. Dieter

Hi Deiter thanks for clarifying that i have the right stain. Another question i have is, since i have now successfully completed the "test fit" i now have to disassemble the tub again in preparation for the final fit and silicone. But there are no instructions in manual on how to dismantle the tub. It is very tight and i am not sure how to do this. can you explain or provide guidance. toni

Toni, use a rubber mallet to free one stave and the rest should come out easy.   Dan
