Tub Size and Shape Choice:
The wood fired tub is available in 3 sizes (diameters): Small (48"), Mediium (60") and Large (72"). The Small size fits one bather (or two small adults). The Medium size fits 2 to 3 adults. The Large size fits up to 5 adults. There are two shape charges: Round and Ellipse. The uniquely beautiful ellipse tubs are a bit smaller than the same diameter circle tubs because they are narrower in the middle. Remember that larger tubs require more water and energy for heating.
Lead time for order to arrive: approximately 9 - 11 weeks.
Tub Height Choice:
Three choices for height - from left: 29", 36", 42". The graphic below shows these side by side. Note that in each case, you have water up to your shoulders! Tubs with less water require less energy to heat.
Our 29" tubs are set up with seating directly on the tub floor. Water is up to your shoulders. Because of the weightless effect of deep water - this is a very comfortable design - and it uses 40% less water than the deeper tubs. Saves water and energy.
Our 36" tubs have l(8") benches that are designed to bring the water to your shoulders. The weightless effect of deep water makes this a very comfortable design - and it uses about 20% less water than the deeper tubs.
Our 42" tubs have higher (12") benches that are designed to bring the hot water up over your shoulders. This is a good choice for those who want an extra deep tub.
Other heights and sizes can be ordered on a custom basis.
