Wooden hot tub manufacture Northern Lights Cedar Tubs Inc. receives the industries Top 10 Hot Tub Award for 2012. This marks the 1st time a Wood Hot Tub Manufacture has received this prestigious award that is issued by Pool & Spa Publications. This award is based on various sources of information that are gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. Polling data was derived from various third-party consumer & industry surveys, as well as input from many of their own in-house editors and CSA's.
Northern Lights Cedar Tubs manufactures barrel “cooperage” hot tubs made from western red cedar. These tubs come equipped with modern amenities such as Hydro therapy jets, LED lighting, and a variety of popular heating methods including a wood fired hot tub heating option.
The wooden hot tub manufacture offers multiple hot tub sizes ranging from their popular small 2-person Japanese soaking tub called an “Ofuro”, to their large 10 person round wood hot tub. They also offer a unique Hydro Therapy Tub that is a large 7’ diameter and 5’ deep. President Dan Jung, comments that “this unique tub design was made for those that need to do exercise or aqua aerobics. This tub contains only a small step in seat, leaving the rest of this giant wooden tub with open space to move around.”
The wood hot tubs are distributed in an easy to assemble kit format. This allows the tubs to be installed in places that a standard plastic molded spa cannot be placed such as upstairs, and in back yards with existing fences. “The modular hot tub kits are quick to assemble and give the owner a sense of pride and ownership” says President Dan Jung.
The company has been making wooden hot tubs for over 15 years and says that over ½ of its annual production is shipped overseas. Dan Jung notes that Europe is a very popular market for a wooden hot tub as they seem to appreciate the fine craft of cooperage, and prefer a hand crafted wooden hot tub over an injection molded plastic tub.
When asked what the main difference versus a plastic hot tub is, Mr Jung says “it is very simple; a wood hot tub is much deeper and provides more comfort from the added buoyancy. It is simplistic in design, while it’s architectural charm and the aromatic western red cedar appeals to the senses. The circular seating arrangement is ideal for socializing. The wood hot tub has a parallel harmony in any outdoor back yard”
