Essentials

Why buy a wood-fired hot tub instead of an electric one?

  • It is cheaper to use a wood-fired heater than an electric one. We have calculated that heating the water once in 2021 will cost £6-13 with a wood-fired heater, and £12-24 with an electric one.
  • It heats much faster compared to an electric heater (1-2 hours in summer and 3-4 hours in winter compared to 12-24 hours, respectively).
  • It is eco-friendly, since wood is a renewable type of energy source. 
  • It’s aesthetic and providing you with an opportunity to keep a ritual with your preparation routine. Watching fire can slowly burn the tension and worries away.

Can I configure a Premium wood-fired hot tub myself?

Yes, you can select the different components and systems as you see it necessary to best meet your needs and desires.

Is there a maximum time I can spend in the wood-fired hot tub?

Keep it short – 15-20 minutes a session and stay properly hydrated so you don’t overheat. After a session, wait until you’re properly cooled down and only then go for another round, which should be a bit shorter than the first.

How long does it take to heat the water to the desired temperature?

It is recommended to bathe in the water which is 37-39°C.

When attending to the fire correctly, an average water heating rate (for 439 gal/2000 litres) is approximately 8°C per hour. Thus, the water temperature reaches 38°C in 1-2 hours in summer and 3-4 hours in winter.

Naturally, it depends on the water temperature before heating, and the type of your firewood will also play a role in this case.

Keeping the tub covered guarantees the best heating time.

Read more on how to heat your hot tub.

Do wood burning hot tubs bubble?

A wood-burning hot tub with an installed whirlpool SPA runs with electricity and the water bubbles. The air jets circulate the water, making the air bubbles rise from the bottom up.

How does water circulate in the heater?

Basic physics apply: 

There are two holes inside the hot tub that operate as water inlet and outlet to and from the heater (below and above the LED light). Heated water flows upwards and through the upper hole (outlet) into the tub, while cold water stays nearer the bottom and keeps flowing into the heater through the lower hole (inlet). 

This cycle continues constantly while heating the stove. No mechanical pump is needed for this circulation.

What massage systems are used in Gardenvity Premium hot tubs?

The standard set of massage set in a Gardenvity Premium hot tub includes 12 air jets and 10 hydro jets. 

You can upgrade with extra 8 air jets and 10 hydro jets (20+20 in total) for maximum benefits.

Hydro jets are targeted streams of water that relieve tension in your back, while air jets provide soothing massage all over your body. With this number of jets, this wood-fired hot tub comes closest to a hydrotherapy electric spa.

Can the water be heated with the electric heater in a Gardenvity Premium hot tub?

No. The heater only has sufficient power to maintain the temperature of the water once it gets heated with the wood-fired stove. 

Heat with firewood, maintain the heat with the electric heater.

How many people can fit in a Gardenvity hot tub?

Gardenvity offers two sizes: 

180cm (70.9in) wide accommodating 6 adults and 2 children with comfortable seats;

200cm (78.8in) wide which is a welcoming size for 8 adults and 2 children. 

If you buy a hot tub just for the two of you, either option will provide you with generous space to relax in. 

Read our more detailed article on choosing the right hot tub model for yourself.

What is the ideal water temperature?

No matter what time of the year it is, we advise keeping the water in the wood-burning hot tub at +39°C as heating the water any higher can cause you to overheat, dehydrate and experience headaches. Those who have heart issues should avoid bathing in high temperatures.

How do I control the temperature of the water?

Every Gardenvity wooden hot tub comes with a floating thermometer. Use it to monitor the temperature when heating the water. Once you reach +39 °C, simply stop adding wood to the burner. If the water is too hot, add cold water with a garden hose and open the cover to let the excessive heat escape.

Read more about effective heating of your hot tub.

Do wood fired hot tubs need chemicals?

If you drain your private hot tub after 1-2 uses, there is no need for chemicals. This is great for those who want to enjoy a relaxing and chemical-free bathing experience. 

With a water filter and chlorine-free sanitisers, you can keep the same water in your hot tub for about a month on average.

If your hot tub is used by guests in your holiday cottage, you must replace the water after each use. 

Read our special article on water hygiene.

Do all Gardenvity wood-fired hot tub models come with a sand/fibre ball filter?

No, only the Premium line hot tubs. 

What liner colours are available with 1-2 seater Gardenvity hot tubs?

They are available in two colours – Cream White and Dark Grey. 

What liner colours are available with Gardenvity Premium hot tubs?

You may choose between 5 colours for your Gardenvity PREMIUM hot tub liner. 

These are Pearlescent White, Grey Metallic, Gold Metallic, Blue Metallic.

What is the heater panel of Gardenvity Premium hot tubs made of?

It is made of stainless steel and covered with special heat-resistant paint. 

How many LEDs are there in a Gardenvity Premium hot tub?

There is one big and ten mini LEDs to create a romantic and playful glow in your hot tub. 

Maintenance

Are wooden hot tubs difficult to clean?

A wood-fired hot tub with fibreglass liner is easy to clean when it is still wet after draining the water. We recommend using regular hot tub/pool cleaning agents that include no chlorine. Please, do not use abrasive cleaners or scrapers that may damage the surface of the fibreglass insert.

To clean the fibreglass insert of your hot tub, please use a soft cleaning cloth or a sponge not to scratch the surface, rinse well with water and drain thoroughly.

If you use aromatherapy bath salts or essential oils in your hot tub, when the tub is emptied, make sure you properly clean and rinse the residues from the fibreglass insert.

To clean the heater walls, you have to spray water through the water inlet and outlet holes in the hot tub liner. Repeat until there appears to be no more dirt in the water heating part.

Please clean the fibreglass insert of your hot tub every time you drain the water. The heater has to be cleaned after every 15-20 uses.

Is it difficult to clean the acrylic insert of a hot tub?

Not at all. Cleaning the acrylic liner is super easy, requiring no more than a wipe down with a soft cloth or a sponge while it’s still wet. Due to the materials and technology used in the production process, the surface of an acrylic liner is exceptionally smooth.

Should the water be drained after each use during wintertime?

Yes, you should drain the water after each use in colder seasons when the temperature is below zero. Letting the water freeze can damage your wooden hot tub.

If you keep the water at bathing temperature (around 39℃) for a longer time, then you don’t need to drain it.

Do I have to clean out my wooden hot tub’s heater frequently?

You don’t have to empty the wood fired hot tub’s heater out completely every time after use. It should work fine as long as there is enough room for the air to circulate and keep the fire going. Before cleaning out the ash, make sure the embers have cooled down and use a long-handled shovel to handle them.

Does UV-C module kill pathogens and algae present in the water?

UV light sterilises pathogens rendering them unable to multiply and causing hygiene and health risks.

Where is the UV-C module placed in the Gardenvity wood-fired hot tub?

The compact UV-C module is installed at the sand/fibre ball filter that is placed in a Thermowood box.

How much power does the UV light module consume?

It uses only 21W of energy.

How often do I need to replace the UV lamp?

Every 9,000 hours (5 years when used 5 hours a day).

How does UV-C work to disinfect water?

Ultraviolet (UV) light, just outside the light spectrum visible to our eyes, is electromagnetic radiation of 200-280 nm wavelength. This wavelength is the most lethal for microorganisms, viruses and bacteria. UV-C radiation used in our filtration system causes permanent damage to microorganisms present in the hot tub water by penetrating through their cell walls and disrupting their DNA. Thus, the microorganism reproduction capacity is damaged, or it is killed. The microorganisms must be directly exposed long enough to the UV-C radiation of the correct intensity to ensure effective disinfection.

Do I need to use sand in the sand/fibre ball filter in a Gardenvity wood-fired hot tub?

No. 

The model of the filter unit that we use in Gardenvity hot tubs has a pump that is designed to operate with fibre balls and not sand to filter the water. It has less power and thus is more energy-efficient, but this power will not be sufficient to filter the water through sand.Please use fibre balls in this sand filter (‘sand’ is used here only to denote the type of filter unit, not the filtration media).

How often will I need to change fibre balls in a sand/fibre ball filter?

2 years on average.

How to replace fibre balls in the sand/fibre ball filter?

It is a straightforward procedure. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Switch the filter unit off; 
  • Remove the multiport valve;
  • Take the fibre balls our by hand; 
  • Rinse the filter tank well; 
  • Put the new (or washed) fibre balls into the filter tank up to the mark; 
  • Fill the tank with water; 
  • Mount back the multiport valve and run the filter again.

How to clean the fibre balls?

After around 3 months of usage, fibre balls have to be taken out to soak and wash manually or in a washing machine (please, put them in a washing net when doing so!).

How often do I need to wash the fibre balls?

Every 3 months on average.

There are sediments on the bottom of the hot tub when using the sand/fibre ball filter. What should I do?

We recommend switching on the massage system to stir the water so that the filter can suck in the impurities with water.

Can I stop using water sanitisers when a sand/fibre ball filter is installed in my hot tub?

No. The sand/fibre ball filter removes debris and particles, and you still need water treatment chemicals to kill the bacteria.

Can I save water when using the sand/fibre ball filter?

Yes, you can keep the water unchanged for a few months when using with UV-C lamp.

Do I need to perform the backwash operation when the sand filter is filled with fibre balls?

No. You need to wash the balls by hand or in a washing machine.

How much water is needed in the 1-2 seater Gardenvity wood-fired hot tub?

800 litres.

What are the maintenance works required with a Gardenvity Premium hot tub?

  • Cleaning the combustion chamber and emptying the ash drawer – the more often, the better.
  • Inspecting the sand filter strainer and cleaning it at least once a week.
  • Wiping the acrylic liner after each water draining.
  • Washing the fibre balls in the filter at least once in 3 months.
  • Cleaning the chimney and the heater every 15-20 uses.
  • Staining the Thermowood parts once a year if you want to preserve the original colour (optional). 
  • Replacing the fibre balls every 2 years. 
  • Changing the UV lamp every 9,000 hours of operation (once in approx. 5 years when used for 5 hours daily).

How often do I need to change the water in the hot tub?

It depends on your chosen hot tub model. The off-grid hot tub has no water filter, so you have to change the water in 1-2 days after 1-2 uses. 

If you have a hot tub with a cartridge water filter and use chlorine-free sanitisers, you can keep the water unchanged for a month on average. 

With either model, if your hot tub is used by guests in your holiday cottage, you have to change the water after each use. 

The water treatment in Gardenvity Premium hot tubs combine the benefits of a sand/fibre ball filter and sanitisers helping to maintain the required water hygiene for up to a month. 

Adding the optional UV-C module will enable you to keep the water clean and unchanged for a few months. 

Remember that maintaining the proper water pH level is key.

Read more about water hygiene.

Is it easy to drain the water out?

Yes. Every wood-fired hot tub has a standard, external water drain valve at the bottom of the hot tub next to the heater.

Read more about draining the water.

Do wood fired hot tubs need chemicals?

If you drain your private hot tub after 1-2 uses, there is no need for chemicals. This is great for those who want to enjoy a relaxing and chemical-free bathing experience. 

With a water filter and chlorine-free sanitisers, you can keep the same water in your hot tub for about a month on average.

If your hot tub is used by guests in your holiday cottage, you must replace the water after each use. 

Read our special article on water hygiene.

Can I use chlorine chemicals for water disinfection in the all-wooden Gardenvity Original hot tub?

Absolutely not. Chlorine will damage the wooden parts of your hot tub.

Can I stop using water sanitiser chemicals when there’s a UV-C purification system installed in the hot tub?

No. Although the UV lamp does reduce algae and bacterial populations, it must be used to augment traditional water sanitising measures (chlorine, bromine or oxygen-based water treatment systems) and cannot be used alone.

You will be able to substantially decrease the amounts of chemicals used.

How does UV light affect water properties?

It has no effect on the pH, conductivity or chemical properties of the water in the hot tub.

As an added benefit, the UV-C technology will reduce the smell of chlorine (if used for water sanitation).

How long do I need to operate the UV-C system?

The UV-C module operates when the water filter is on. It is recommended to run the filtration system 4-5 hours per day.

Is the UV-C technology efficient in a hot water environment?

Yes. The Blue Lagoon UV-C unit used in Gardenvity wood-fired hot tubs is specially designed for water with high temperatures (±40°C), such as spas and hot tubs.

What value does the UV-C technology add in a hot tub?

It is an environmentally friendly and cost-effective technology. When used at a wood-fired hot tub, it reduces the amount of chemicals needed for water sanitation while the disinfection effectiveness only increases.

What are the advantages of a sand/fibre ball filter?

Sand filters, which are the oldest water filtration system used in swimming pools, previously used natural filtering media – hence their name. 

The technology has been significantly improved by replacing sand with more effective modern filtering media, such as fibre balls to trap smaller particles (down to 5-3 microns compared to 35-20 microns with sand). 

The modern filtering media also plays an important role in reducing energy consumption, keeping the filter pumps under lower pressure. What is more, the fibre balls can be recycled to make it an environmentally friendly solution.

Do fibre balls perform well at cleaning the water in a hot tub?

They perform extremely well filtering the particles down to 5-3 microns in size.

Is the sand/fibre ball filtration system more expensive than a cartridge filter?

The sand/fibre ball filtration unit requires a higher initial investment. However, its maintenance becomes much cheaper in the long run.

What maintenance works need to be carried out with a sand/fibre ball filter?

As a standard, maintenance works with a sand/fibre ball filter includes the following: 

– Timely cleaning of fibre balls. Typically, you’d expect to see the pressure gauge needle going up, signalling you to backwash, but not with the fibre balls. We recommend that you inspect the fibre balls inside your filter every 3 months and clean them if needed. However, it will largely depend on usage and quality of the water.  Use a little trial and error to find the best schedule for your hot tub. When you keep fibre balls clean, you’ll have better filtration, water flow and clearer water. 

– Cleaning the filter strainer (positioned inside the hot tub at the foot well) to remove the larger debris restrained at the water pump inlet when you see it. 

– Changing fibre balls when they lose effectiveness. This has to be performed only once in 2 years.

Are fibre balls recyclable?

Yes, the fibre balls can be recycled to make it an environmentally friendly solution.  

Where can I buy fibre balls?

You can buy fibre balls to use in with Gardenvity hot tubs on Amazon.  

How long does it take to heat a 1-2 seater Gardenvity hot tub?

The wood-fired stove heats the water very quickly, requiring only 1–1.5 hours in summer; 2–2.5 hours in winter.  

What are the dimensions of a packed 1-2 seater Gardenvity hot tub?

The dimensions of a packed 1-2 seater Gardenvity wood-fired hot tub are LxHxD: 210x210x110cm (6.9×6.9×3.6 feet).  

How long does it take to fill a 1-2 seater Gardenvity hot tub with water?

It will depend on your water mains installation but should take around 45 minutes to fill.  

How long do I have to operate the water filter with a 1-2 seater Gardenvity hot tub?

2-3 hours per day.
