Silver Barrel (Mini)
Forget about high operating cost, electricity, chemicals and maintenance that comes with a conventional Hot Tub. We have developed the perfect hot tub for the cottage. The Cottage Tub is designed to take 500 gallons/ 2000 Litres of lake water (Friday night) and heat it to hot tub temperatures (100-104 degrees F) in 2-3 hours, depending on your starting temperatures. The heating component is our smallest wood burning pool heater known as the Mini (http://www.woodstovepools.com/silver-barrel), which is designed to heat a 10,000gallon swimming pool, thus the reason it heats the Cottage Tub so fast and efficently. Once the tub is heated to operational temperatures it takes only an armful of wood per day to maintain those temperatures. Empty the water into your gardens, lawn on Sunday before heading home, a true environmental conscience Hot Tub (No chemicals required).
The Cottage Tub and Wood Burning Stove (The Mini) are 100% stainless steel. The stainless steel is a key feature in the Cottage Tub’s construction giving it longevity and many many years of enjoyment; there is no other hot tub on the market made of stainless steel.
Technical Specs: 3 Ways to Install
Thermosiphoning – Utilizing our thermosiphoning ports, the cold water is drawn natural into the wood burning stove, as it is heats it will rise up the walls of the stove and out the top port into the tub. This is a great option for those cottages off grid – (This would fall under option A in the pricing chart)
Thermosiphoning with a pump a filter – Same as # 1 above while also incorporating # 3 below. This is a great option for those cottages off grid, but having solar power stored. The Cottage Tub can be heated using the thermosiphoning ports and occasionally the pump is turned on to help circulate and clean the water. The pump is 1.3 amps and does not draw very much electricity. (This would fall under option B in the pricing chart)
Like a conventional hot tub or pool. The pump pulls the water from the Cottage Tub, pushes it through the filter, then through the wood burning heater and back to the Cottage Tub through the 2 action jets. This gives you the ability to place the heater within 10 feet of the Cottage Tub, even burry the lines if you choose. (This would fall under option B in the pricing chart)
