Do I have to impregnate the wood?
We advise yukon cedar wood to be treated annually with boiled linseed oil when used outdoors. The red cedar wood type is very durable and can withstand weather and wind influences without maintenance.
The wood will eventually discolour silver-gray. Red cedar wood is strongly oily. Over time, stains may appear in the wood due to the oil. If you want to preserve the appearance of the wood, we recommend treating the wood with boiled linseed oil.
Why roof covering?
Wood is a natural product and subject to weather influences. In very dry periods in summer, wood shrinks. Gaps appear between the wooden bars. When it rains, moisture can drip through the bars. The wood will expand again during the humid periods. We therefore always advise to provide your sauna with a roof covering.
You can choose from Bitumen shingles. You nail these down. The sun makes the tar layer of the shingles stick to the roof. Little sun? Then you can also burn the shingles on the roof yourself.
A different look? You can also opt for a wooden roof covering. We have various wooden roof solutions.
If you do not opt for a roof covering, you realize that the sauna will not be waterproof all year round!
Wood is a natural product. During rain and strong wind, moisture can be pushed through the seam between the walls. The inside of a sauna is dry, the outside is wet. Due to the natural suction of the wood (capillary effect), this can become visible on the inner wall of the sauna (oil stains).
Boiled linseed oil can reduce stains on the outside of the sauna by treating the sauna with. You cannot use this for the interior walls!
We also advise you to regularly check the straps and tighten them where necessary.
Which stove is suitable?
There are several options for a heater at your sauna. Click on the image for more information about the chosen stove:
A hot tub has a 25 kW heater on the inside of the tub as standard. It is also possible to opt for an external heater.
The advantage of this construction is the optimal heat transfer from the stove to the water. As standard there is a wooden rack between the stove and the seats. The water can get dirty a little faster due to an internal heater.
The external heater has a 45kW heater. You can choose between a closed door or a glass door. By placing the heater on the outside, you retain maximum space in the hot tub. Cleaning the stove is also easy.
You should heat a hot tub well with enough wood. A good fire and wait about 2 hours until you can relax in a lovely warm bath.
With the extra wooden paddle you can stir the water within an hour and the enjoyment can begin!
