Barrel Soaking Tubs
Our premium cedar soaking tubs are constructed of the same beautiful clear vertical grain Western Red Cedar, as our larger hot tubs.
The smaller size of the Japanese soaking tubs provides the opportunity to use a tankless hot water heater. Since soaking tubs hold less water than a hot tub, you can fill them and drain them after each use.
Whether in a bathroom or outside under the stars, these tubs are sure to leave you feeling rejuvenated.
Our smaller one person oval soaker tub makes for an excellent ice bath, or is great for places where water is at a premium.
The larger 2-person soaking tub, at 125 gallons, works great with electric heat, or filled directly from the house.
For our larger 4 foot diameter tub, you would need to heat the water with electric heat.
*If our tubs are to be used indoors, a tiled floor or concrete floor with a drain or shower pan set up is necessary. The tubs also require ventilation for any steam that builds up. Outdoor installation on a deck or patio requires no extra consideration for spilling water.
You can heat Forest Cooperage soaking tubs using one of three methods:
1. Electrically: 5.5 kw 240v or 1.5kw 120v digitally controlled heater, 25 sq. ft. filter and small 1/15 hp circulating pump. This equipment will work from a 20 amp, 110 volt GFCI wall plug if wired to 1.5kw. If wired to 1.5 kw, it may take more than 1 day to heat up between fillings
2. If you have a large water tank or supply of solar heated water, fill the tub directly from the tap.
3. Wood fired external Chofu heater. Suitable up to 4 foot diameter by 3 foot deep tub
