are you running your pump off the jeep?

what type of heat exchanger are you running?

We used two coils and 2 12volt rv water pumps. And for the frame we used 2 picnic tables and some 2x12's , logs , sand and a tarp. Set up was easy...next time we need to bring some nails to hold it together... This time was our first tub.. And will be bringing it again

cool.

how was stoking the fire to keep the water warm?

how many hours did it take to heat up to hot tub temp (104)

is the tub still there or did you guys take it down when you left?

we took it down when we left... also cleaned up a whole bunch of garbage.

i would say it took 4 hours to heat up and hold temp.

thats pretty good and quick

i was just asking because I recently built my own propane power hot tub heat exchanger and wanted to compare to the copper fire coil that most people use

Never seen this style of hot tub action before, any pics of the " coils" so i can mentally grasp the idea better, Would like to try it sometime. Timeframe how long does it take to get it hot enough ?

stumanchu

dont really see the coils too well.... but they are just a 50 foot roll 3/4" copper not unwound....

3/4 is good because it will last a long time. 5/8 will transfer the heat better
