Cedar Hot Tubs

Classic Cedar Wood

Creating the art of stylish living

Hot water bathing has been a tradition, probably since mankind learnt to heat water. The ancient Romans almost perfected hot bathing in their Aquae Sulis (waters of Sul.) They built large communal spas which they warmed with central fire-heating systems, called a hypocaust system.

Firehouse has a distinguished track record as the sole distributor and installer of Cedar Hot Tubs, manufactured by world leaders Northern Lights. Starting with hot tubs suitable for two people to share the calming and healing pleasure of therapeutic sessions, to a complete experience of brotherhood and sisterhood for up to ten friends. Just imagine all the extra space to do water exercises when you have a large hot tub all to yourself!


For 100’s of years societies around the world have rejuvenated in the calming and healing pleasures of warm water. From as far back as the ancient Greeks, tales are spoken of the medicinal healing powers of bathing in natural hot springs. Our wooden hot tubs come in many different shapes and sizes, from our Classic Cedar hot tub to our Japanese Ofuro Tub. Our wooden hot tub sizes range from small 1 or 2 person hot tub such as our ofuro soaking tub to large round hot tubs seating up to large 10 person – family tub sales.

The ancient art of healing the soul is part of the unique experience of a hot tub. The added depth and simplicity makes our tubs truly unique when compared to other plastic spas. The circular design makes our hot tubs a great place to gather with family and friend(s) in a “round table” tradition. With the option of powerful yet quiet jets, our hot tubs can provide both a spiritual healing as well as a more traditional spa hydrotherapy massage. We use powerful adjustable jets that sooth and gently massage the muscles and joints.

Ofuro Soaking Tubs

Originating from Japan where bathing is not just a bath but rather a spiritual ritual. The Ofuro bathing practice differs from North American and European bath tubs, Ofuro bath tubs are ‘zen’ like providing a sensual pleasure and a feeling of well-being and harmony with the natural surroundings, perhaps in a garden or spiritual landscape. Japanese bath tubs help to restore mental and spiritual well-being by providing a private relaxation space, and they promote good health by stimulating circulation.

A Ofuro Tub requires a deep chin down soak which means the tub is a deeper tub than normal bathtubs. Traditionally Japanese soak in very hot water heated by means of a quiet non-electrical Wood Fired Hot Tub Heaters. The thick cedar construction of our Ofuro’s means that the tub will maintain its heat much longer than a regular tub. Our ‘Fuoro Tubs” are made of clear Western Red Cedar which is a close cousin to the traditional cypress wood used in Japan. Red Cedar has the distinct advantage of being naturally resilient to decay and bacteria. It also is known for its high insulating value. The pleasant aromatherapy of cedar heightens the experience! Our tubs use an architectural stainless steel strap system which allows the tub to naturally expand and contract without worrying about the wood splitting.

Heat Your Hut Tub

  • Electric heating system comes with a 1.4/5.5 KW Balboa digital spa pack and a 1/8 HP circulating pump & filter. This system allows bathers to control the temperature with the touch of a button. The filter system helps keep the water clean without the need for frequent draining. The kilowatts produced depends on the service voltage, 1.4 kW is produced with 120v service. We can also offer a higher end spa pack that produces 4 kW of heat and has advanced programming options as well as wireless remote control capabilities using an iPhone.

  • Wood fired hot tub heater. Because of the smaller volume of water these tubs can be heated in about 1-2 hour, with only the cost of wood. No electricity is required, but because there is no filtering water will get murky faster and water will need to changed often.

  • Wood fired hot tub heater and augment it with a pump and filter system to keep the water clear! Further consider the addition of an electric heater to the filter system so once you have heated the water with the wood heater you can keep the water at the desired temperature without constantly attending to the fire. The electric heaters vary from a simple inline heater to more sophisticated digital spa packs similar to those mentioned under choice 1. Filter and electric heat options is recommended when used in freezing weather.

Easy to keep Hot Tubs clean and hygienic

Unfortunately, many myths exist about Hot Tubs. These may well rob you of the thrill and charm of owning your own hot tub. Here is the truth.
Contrary to the belief of some, keeping a spa or hot tub clean and hygienic takes only a few minutes after each use and a few minutes each week to keep your Firehouse Hot Tub in excellent condition.

It is almost as simple as regularly checking the pH levels, alkalinity and calcium levels with a test strip and using a sanitizer. Chlorine or bromine are excellent for this purpose, and perfumed additives will keep the water smelling fresh and pleasant. Clean your hot tub as you would your bath, and no dirt will accumulate.

Avoid using oils, and the filters will remove all the other impurities from the water. In most cases, it is only necessary to drain and replace the water once every three to six months, depending on how often the tub is used and what oils end up in the water. Your owner’s manual will give simple instructions on how to keep the hot tub clean and will indicate the amounts of each product that needs to be added to the water.

Monthly energy costs are not as high as most people think. Besides, the extra cost of running your Firehouse hot tub will be offset by the feeling of health and wellbeing. Moreover, it quickly becomes part of your family routine and entertainment and relaxation
