Typically 2-3 hours, but it depends on the temperature of the water used to fill the tub and the outside weather conditions. On a warm day, with a light breeze and some gentle stirring with the oar, it will heat up faster.

The burner can be fired up only when there is sufficient water in the tub to cover the burner chamber, which is below the flue outlet. There is a sign on the burner highlighting the water level. You can control the temperature by regulating the amount of wood added and air supplied (via the lid opening). Instructions are provided on the hot tubs.

Any problems, you can text or call our site manager, Tim whose number will be supplied to you on booking.
