Types of wood fired hot tubs
There are 2 different types of wood fired hot tubs. One version has the heater in the middle of the hot tub. This internal heater will usually have a fence surrounding it, making it hard to throughly clean your hot tub. With this version, the chimney is inside the tub and just a few inches of the soakers. This means you can’t fit as many people in the tub and the sparks and smoke can fall directly onto the soakers. There’s also a chance of ashes and wood chipping to fall into the tub, resulting in more consistent cleaning. However, with the heater on the outside of the tub, you can not only fit more people, but you also don’t have to worry about ashes, wood chips, sparks, or smoke ruining your relaxing experience. This version allows easier cleaning, as well as the use of a full cover when it’s not being used.
