Northern Light's incorporates the most modern hot tub technology from leading equipment manufacturers in the USA We feature Balboa Water Group spa parts, (see our hot tub product specifications) including powerful but quiet 2-speed pumps, digital spa heaters with LCD top side controllers, advanced filter systems, and powerful jets (See Electric Hot Tub System) To compliment our Wooden Hot Tubs, we also offer a variety of custom cedar accessories such as stairs, enclosures and side shelves. Our wooden spas are available with advanced chemical free sanitization systems such as ozonators and mineral ionizer Hot Tub Systems for those that prefer a milder, more natural alternative to bromine or chlorine sanitization in spas.
Our wooden hot tubs come in many different shapes and sizes, from our Classic Cedar Hot Tubs to our Japanese Ofuro Tub. Our wooden hot tub sizes range from small 1 or 2 person hot tub such as our wooden bathtubs to large round hot tubs seating up to large 10 person - family tub sizes.
The modern "hot tub" trend started in the 1960's in California, with people modifying large oak wine barrels into private soaking hot tubs. Cedar and Red Wood Hot Tubs were soon introduced because of their natural resistance to decay. These woods have a great natural insulating property and expanded to form a very tight seal when wet. These California Hot Tubs were the grandfathers that the modern day wooden hot tub is modeled after. Northern Lights Cedar Tubs manufactures hot tubs using a balance of old world cooperage (barrel making) and modern design.
In the 1970s' plastic molding and injection hot tub shells were introduced and quickly these became the fad. The terms "spa" and "hot tub" became the same meaning . As with most trends, the classic look of wood and its superior functionality gained a rebirth of the "wooden hot tub". The architectural appeal and unique styling of a wood hot tub could never be matched by plastics. And so it is, the classic California hot tub has continued it legacy and grown in popularity as people look for simplicity and functionality in their hot tubs or spas..
Today Northern Lights Cedar Tubs Inc. is the world's leading supplier of Cedar Hot Tubs and Japanese soaking tub. By integrating the old world art of cooperage (barrel making) with modern advancements in manufacturing technologies combined with the best hot tub equipment, we can confidently say "Our Cedar Hot Tubs are simply the best!"
At Northern Lights we pride ourselves on producing quality wood hot tubs, this starts by selecting only the top grade of Clear Western Red Cedar. It's superiority to decay, and its sweat aromatic scent have made cedar the number choice for hot tub construction. It's straight fibrous strands absorb water causing it to expand equally forming a permanent water tight seal. These same porous strands also give cedar one of the highest insulating values of all common woods. Cedar is the natural choice for all outdoor hot tubs and wood burning hot tubs!
We take the ancient art of barrel making (cooperage) and add modern day computer technology including Computer Aided Milling and Computer Aided Design (CAD). Our barrel hot tubs are built with strict tolerances. By using Laser Guided Milling machines, we guarantees that each Stave (wall board) is precisely the exact size. Our Quality Inspection Program, ensures that each wood tub leaves our factory knowing it will exceed our customer's high expectations. Our attention to detail is the reason that our cedar hot tubs are found in some of the worlds most prestigious resorts (See some of our hottub awards and commercial projects)
