Northern Lights Hot tub & Cedar Hottubs

GENERAL

When can I use my hot tub ?
The whole year round ! Unlike a swimming pool, a hot tub can be enjoyed in any season and with any weather type. During the colder, rainy autum days, you will truly experience the relaxing effect of the warm, massaging water all the more. And during long summer nights it's simply wonderful to stay in your tub for hours and stare at the stars after a long day at work.

What is the main difference between synthetic and cedar wooden hot tubs?
The total experience! Our hot tubs are much deeper and therefore they offer a free and relaxed posture . This is impossible in shallow plastic spas. The aromatic scent of cedar wood in combination with the warm, relaxing water ensure a naturally soothing experience.

Is a wooden hot tub less healthy than a plastic spa ?
No ! In 1993 the Food Research Institute at the University of Wisconsin (USA) performed a comparative test. The basic assumption was that wood would absorb dirt and thus would form a breeding ground for all sorts of harmful bacteria. Seven types of wood and four types of plastic were tested for E-Coli, Listeria and Salmonella. Surprisingly enough, the bacteria were neutralized within three minutes after coming into contact with the wood. This was not the case with plastic surfaces.

What kind of maintenance does a hot tub require?
A Red Cedar hot tub requires little maintenance. The unique, antibacterial oils contained in Red Cedar in itself provides natural cleaning. Simply rinse the hot tub with a garden hose and brush with a wet cloth. Do not use high pressure cleaning or abbrasives. If you choose a filter system, the water can be used much longer. An additional ozonator and ionizer system make sure you can use the water months in a row!

Is your cedar sustainably sourced?
We take sustainability very seriously and therefore offer only products made from renewable sources, as opposed to synthetic hot tubs which are produced from oil derivatives. We buy our material straight from sawmills with a sustainability label. The cedar we use is certified by the ‘Sustainable Forestry Initiative' (SFI) and has been since 2001. The sawmills are screened by KPMG and have been approved as ‘sustainable'. SFI is an international seal of quality that is awarded to forests which meet the strictest standards of renewability and sustainability.

INSTALLATION

How long does it take to assemble a hot tub?
Most customers make it a weekend job, assembling the hot tub on day A, finishing on day B and start using it right away! We have developed our kits so that anyone owning a regular toolbox can do the assembly. There are no special skills or tools required. In fact, building your own hot tub with our quality components is a fun and rewarding project!

Can you do the assembly for me?
Of course we can! In case you prefer to have the assembly done for you we can either deliver your hot tub pre-assembled, or send our crew to come and do the installation on site. Contact us if you want to know more about our worldwide installation services.

What does “delivery within three days” mean?
Products that are in stock in our distribution center can be picked up within 3 business days. Delivery will take an extra 5-6 business days.

How much does shipping cost on average?
