Hot Tubs, Jacuzzis, and Saunas

Parent Category: Home & Garden
Hot Tubs, Jacuzzis, and saunas use a combination of heat and moisture for relaxation and hydrotherapy. Hot tubs, sometimes known by the trade name Jacuzzis, are a type of small pool or large bathtub heated to high temperatures, often containing massaging jets. Saunas are small rooms with varying degrees of moisture, kept at high temperatures, designed to induce perspiration.
With tiles! But on a more serious note, build a frame, plaster  board it, get a base tray for the water to fall into and connect it  to your waste. Plaster the "boarded wall" then tile it. Then  install the shower itself. Seal up then its ready to use.
If the sauna is wired correctly, there is none.
A jacuzzi tub is a hot tub with underwater jets that massage the  body.

Older style tubs have a pressure switch usually mounted directly on the heater manifold, or attached to the plumbing. The pressure switch is connected to the spa pack/circuit board with 2 wires and shuts the heater off if there is not enough pressure in the heater tube/manifold to protect the heater...
You should use chlorine to save money. bleach is only 6% hydro acid. You can get a test kit from any hardware store & let pH determine. Add & test until it's where it's supposed to be.

It is about £60 a- day but it all depends on what climate the tub is in and how hot you heat it to:) easy!
Depends how hot the sauna is. If it's really hot, you can't usually  stay longer than a few minutes, but if it's around 60-75°C, you can  stay a lot longer, even up to an hour or so if you have water with  you for drinking.
You sit on the bench, throw water on the stove and sweat a lot.
Yes 110/120 volt is typical house current in North America
Usually the person or store that you bought the hot tub off of. But if you don't have a hot tub yet, and just want to know like how much one is or something, then you could find the nearest place by you that's selling hot tubs, and call them and they'd give you an answer.
Yes, as long as you don't pass out when you're drunk. And it would be a good idea not to be alone just in case.

No longer then 15 minutes, but I think 30 max would be fine.

Depends on the temperature of the sauna and on the individual.  Anything between a few minutes and several hour.
Yes, but it will still not be very hot unless it sits in the sun all day. You could use a solar heater to heat the water for the tub in the summer. You can make this with a long water hose and a pump. Put the hose in the sun and pump water through it.

Yes, sauna needs ventilation. Contact people who construct saunas  for instructions.

Hot tubs are a product that is generally fairly expensive. The cheapest route would possibly be to buy a slightly used one. Ebay is a wonderful place for finding next-to-new products at great prices.

A home sauna installation can cost anywhere from one thousand dollars on up, according to the type of sauna unit you purchase and how much renovation or construction is required.
Hot tub covers can have long lives if they are cared for properly. Hot tub covers are mostly affected by dirt and sunlight so keep it clean and perhaps put a tarp over it if the hot tub is in direct sunlight.
Hot tub covers can indeed prevent your hot tub from being damaged. they prevent leaves from falling into your hot tub, which can clog up various pipes and whatnot in your hot tub. Also, anything else that could get into your hot tub, will be prevented from doing so.
