Introduction: Wood Fire Heated Hot Tub

l bought a used IBC which had honey in it, the heating coil l had made in china out of stainless steel, l fabricated the stand for the heater coil, ash tray from aluminium and the adjustable fire basket from airconditioning duct,l also made a heat shield for the front of the very hot coil, on the sharp edge of the cut IBC l used slit pool noodles, which is great to lean on. The fire in the heating basket takes about 4 hours to heat the water to 40oC. My hot tub is totally portable and l take it to our holiday shack ......we enter the tub with a small step ladder and sit on kids chairs while soaking and looking at the stars....my little project has set me back about $400 AUD and it sure runs rings around the more expensive tubs on the market.............thankyou for reading.

Copper would be the best option to be honest!

Really cool idea! How did you attach the coil to your tub?
