How To Make a FLOATING HOT TUB

September 2, 2019


Our previous hot tub was a tiny bit on
the small side We need a real hot tub We’re going to make a proper hot tub down here We’re not making a regular hot tub because Andrew can’t make anything regular The project this
weekend is an amphibious hot tub I’m Andrew. I’m Kevin. Welcome to Brojects! We’ll cut the top section off to resemble a hot tub allowing us to enjoy the lake views
when in the tub We’ll then surround the fiberglass tub with a wood frame to add strength and incase it in Cedar in order to keep this hot tub from sinking we’re going to need a lot of flotation so we’re gonna to build two outriggers on either side and fill them with foam and in addition to flotation our outriggers will house a storage compartment for an ice bucket and drink holders as well as a marine battery to power
the outboard trolling motor The hot tub water will be heated a wood fire heater positioned on the end of the dock Once the tub is up to temperature We’ll detach and cruise the lake So I’m just finishing up the framing here for the tub it’s coming together slowly but surely
these little guys are gonna receive our outrigger two by fours…they’re going to slot basically right into there this thing is getting mighty heavy
I can’t even really lift it so we’re going to run into weight problems like we always do This thing weighs a ton! I cannot
believe how heavy it is! I don’t know how we’re gonna get it in
and out of the water It might be a land-based floating hot tub The outriggers are coming along alright. I finished up the box here and we’re going to put in our cups Pour it with the foam and see how it goes What do you think? Cup holder, cup holder, wine…battery box will have to run the wire
from the battery probably two feet…and we’ll get our motor What’s the tin foil for? I don’t know how much splatter we’re gunna get with this foam These cups…they will accept a beer bottle, a wine glass Okay, well lets pour the foam This project is all about the foam, because that’s whats going to make it float the hardest thing about working with foam is the unpredictability Its expanding a bit It sounds like our cups getting crushed though This is going to be the carrying cart for the hot tub I’ve been struggling a little
bit with the weight of this hot tub how are we going to move it around and whatnot this is going to help us launch our hot
tub into the water its a simple little frame couple wheels on either corner but I think
it’ll do the trick I like it when I come up with ideas and you build them This is your idea? This is my idea! Alright, well you must have dreamt it Go time? Yea! Packed My hands are glued together This is going to be the top rail, that caps our hot tub…kind of pretties it up and it needs it Should we give Walker a call before we put this thing in? Say our goodbyes? One. Two. Three! Hope its gonna float! Its gonna float! Oh my god its floating! So this is our wood fire water heater The water gets sucked up with the pump goes into the heater, gets hot, and then comes back to our hot tub Way to go buddy! Right on! Alright buddy I’m going in! Perfect man! Nice work on that hot tub heater This looks excellent! Its still at one hundred and two its holding its temp Ready? Alright, fire it up! The tub was really great. I didn’t expect it to work that well at all. The water was hot…the beer was cold! Lets put those seats on it! I think the teeter totter is going to work a lot better with the seats

    This is not amphibious at all

    Calling shens on leaving the heat source behind, it's not a party that will last very long in my neck of the woods. This build needs a propane fired supplemental heater at the very least.

    There is actually a 12 volt water heater so if you put a solar panel of atleast 100 watts you could warm up the tub even when you are already out in the waters.
