• Adding Years to the Usable Life-Span of Your Hot Tub
• Virtually Eliminates the Possibility of the Wood Warping in the Future
• Provides Up to Twice as Much Insulation Value as Thinner Tubs

Our steel bands are roll threaded at each end and come with a cast iron coupler, two stainless steel nuts and a unique polyethylene sheathing which protects the bands from rusting or gouging the wood.

The most popular type of wood for building quality hot tubs is Western Red Cedar.  Western Red Cedar looks great and smells wonderful, but the woods unique natural properties are what keeps hot tub manufacturers and customers coming back for more.

The benches in our hot tubs are made from 2 x 12 clear, all heart, vertical grain western red cedar with a finished thickness of 1-1\2″ thick by 11-1\4″ wide.  Our “Full Circle” bench is comprised of 8 sections and is supported by 2′ x 4’s which are attached to the sides of the Bench-Close2tub.

No part of the Full Circle Bench touches the floor, thereby allowing your feet complete, unobstructed freedom.

Less than “full circle” benches can be installed for those wishing to have both sitting and standing areas.  Less than full circle benches come in variety of sizes and can be installed at various levels to allow for people of different heights. All of our benches come complete with stainless steel screws and hardware for fastening benches to the tub.

Our tubs can be installed in just about any location by following the complete step by step installation guide that comes with all of our hot tubs.  It’s totally comprehensive and the instructions make it easy for first-timers, intermediate or advanced DIY’s to understand.

The assembly process for a wood hot tub can take as little as an hour or two for an experienced “Do-it-Yourselfer”.  If you are adding plumbing and equipment for heating, filtering and sanitizing the overall assembly process will take more time depending on your level of experience.
