Our wood fired hot tub heater systems are a very economical way to enjoy your Northern Lights Cedar Tub. The only additional cost would be the preparation of a solid foundation. The wood fired tub system is very inexpensive to operate (cost of wood). It is ideal in cottage country, where typically users enjoy the pleasures of a wood fired hot tub soak during weekends and holidays. Wood fired heating systems release considerable amounts of heat. Lake water can be heated to operating temperatures in as little as 1-4 hours depending on the starting temperature and size (volume) of tub. The draw back of the Chofu system is that it must be drained and filled more often unless a optional 120VAC filter/pump system is added.
All tub kits come complete with materials and hardware.
The TimberLine Wood Water Stoves are precision built wood burning water heaters designed specifically for hot tubs and above ground pools. They circulates water using the principal of thermosiphon (the pumping action created by rising hot water), eliminating the need for a circulating pump or electricity. This unique feature opens up a whole new range of possibilities for alternative hot tubs. Now you can have a basic soaking tub without pumps, chemicals, or high maintenance.
The stove body of the TimberLine Heater is made with high quality stainless steel, grade (340), so it can be used outside, without worry. And since the firebox is also made of stainless steel, it will withstand years of service without the danger of burning-out. The smoke outlet on the Wood fired hot tub heater features a unique vented collar that provides secondary combustion of unburned gases, for reducing smoke emissions and chimney sparks.
The TimberLIne Wood Water Stoves utilize a sophisticated heat exchange design for efficient water heating. The stainless steel stove body surrounding the firebox is a double-walled water-jacket with a 1.5-inch space between, making the entire firebox (except the front) a heat-transferring surface. Additional heat transfer takes place in a water-filled baffle plate that runs horizontally through the firebox. The baffle deflects the path of the fire, so it gives up more heat into the water jacket before going up the chimney.
