Hydrotherapy Cedar Tub
"The heat from the warm water makes joint movement in the person with arthritis much easier," says Washington, D.C., rheumatologist Dr. Jack Klippel, medical director of the Arthritis Foundation. "We consider it an important component of therapy."
Water's buoyancy serves as a cushion, protecting joints during exercise routines. Because it is a liquid, water offers more resistance than air, helping people build muscle strength as they push against it.
These hot tubs are made to order and typically take 4-6 weeks to
arrive. Additional features &
options can be added, please contact us if you want additional features not

Without Deluxe Package With Deluxe Package
Please note some images depict custom stairs that were either special ordered or built by the homeowner. We can accommodate these requests at additional cost, but many times it is best for the homeowner to create their own unique stairs based on their site plans.
Cedar Electrical Enclosure
The electric pumps and electric heat must be protected from wind & rain. The cedar enclosure can do just that. Depending on if your install, we can provide a standalone enclosure or attached enclosure. Standalone are designed when you want to have the pumps & heater installed away from the tub. Another option is to place the electrical motors & heater under a deck or other structure that provides protection for the weather & rain.
Some customers are concerned about energy cost due to cold weather. Upgrade to the R21 cover and/or add the insulated floor to your order. Insulating the outside of the tub is not an option unless you plan to build the tub into a deck. When built into a deck, insulation can be added below the deck, to not take away any of the beauty of the tub. For standalone tubs, there is no option to insulate the outside of the tub as that takes away from the attractiveness of the cedar tub.
When you select a gas or electrical heater, your tub will come with 4 jets standard. You can add up to two additional jets, 6 total, for even spa experience. The max number of jets is 6 total, if you want more than 6 jets please contact us. This requires upgrades to the pump to push that much water.
Our Cedar tubs we have four sanitization options to choose from.
Water Treatment Starter Kit
Ozone & Ionization
Water Treatment Starter Kit
The starter kit includes everything a 1st time user will need to maintain clear & sanitized water! It includes sanitizers, oxidizers, water balancing and filtering enhancement products. Included are a large bucket of bromine tablets with floating dispenser as well as liquid Na Br salt and Non-Chlorine Oxidizer (MIPS) to create Bromine in the 2-step method. Balancing products include Calcium +, Alkaline +, PH +, PH. Other products include; De-foamer, natural enzyme scum remover, flocculent, chemical dispenser, 5-way water test kit. The most comprehensive water treatment kit in the business! After ordering your starter kit, feel free to purchase additional chemicals from a local supplier or other online stores.
Please note: Bromine is the recommended chemical sanitizer for cedar tubs. Chlorine is not recommended as it can damage the cedar finish. Rest assured that there are ways to fix your tub if you mistakenly use chlorine and it damages our wood finish, it entails draining the tub, letting it dry, & sanding the interior to smooth finish.
The O3 Generator uses UV Light to produce OZONE, the strongest oxidizer available, to destroy dead organic compounds such as skin, lotions, body oils, and other mater introduced by bathers. Ozone produced by the O3 Generator is short lived and reduces the usage of bromine and chemical oxidizers (MPS) by 60%. It leaves no residue in the water. For smaller tubs, we use the Balboa Uv Ozone Generator (Image on the right). While this will help reduce the amount of bromine, it will not fully eliminate the need to use bromine.
Ozone (Mg/Hr @ 2 Ipm)
5 x 6.375 x 2.67”
Max Spa Size (Gal)
The Mineral Ionizer is A Natural Alternative to Chemical Sanitation (eliminating bacteria & microorganisms) for Pools & Spas. This is an alternative sanitizer which eliminates the use of bromine. Silver, Copper and Zinc are added to the water by electrolysis which kills over 650 types of bacteria and algae and stimulates healing of the skin.
A water treatment kit is still recommended for the water balancing products, defoaming, filtering enhancement products and oxidizing products that are still required. One starter kit should last for years if you select the ionizer option.
Ozone & Ionizer
By using the combination of both systems bathers will experience the cleanest, clearest water with the least amount of maintenance. You can easily go away for a month and never have to worry about algae or bacteria. No harsh chemical smells or irritations and no more buying expensive chemicals! You can even drain your hot tub water on your lawn or water your flowers without having to worry about chemicals in the water destroying them.
A water treatment kit is still recommended for the water balancing products, defoaming, filtering enhancement products and oxidizing products that are still required. One starter kit should last for years if you select the ionizer option. The starter kit can be used to shock the tub, if you have a larger group of people using the spa.
General Water Balancing Info:
Bromine is the chemical sanitizer option that can be used on a wooden tub. Customer can add a mineral ionizer to reduce the amount bromine needed by up to 90%, and they can add an ozonator to help get closer to 100%. Both systems use different technologies that can be used in conjunction with each other.
In addition to sanitation the water, as with any hot tub or spa, the PH, Calcium and Alkalinity need to be balanced to ensure crystal clear water. While the ozone or Ionization can sanitize, you will still need to test your water and balance as needed. This can be done using our water treatment kit which includes all balancing products, clarifiers, test strips, antifoam, sanitizer and spa shock, and is a good investment as it provides you with everything needed for the first few years.
All cedar tubs come standard as a DYI kit. This is for your convenience to be able to move the tub to your designated install site without having to rent any equipment or find team of people to move. We provide all the instructions for you to put the unit together on site.
For additional fee our tubs can ship fully assembled. Please note some assembly may be require on tubs, as we may need to separate heaters & motors to prevent damage during shipping. We will assemble it as complete as we can to take as much work away from you if you chose the assembly options.
1. The shipping company cannot move your tub to the final site location. They can only drop-off in your driveway.
2. The customer is responsible for the onsite installation. This will include site preparation, moving tub to the final location, final assembly as needed, connecting electricity (we recommend hiring electrician) and connecting plumping as needed. Will provide instruction manuals & details on how to complete the project, but you will be responsible for the actual work.
