    Good grief~ So expensive for such a small featureless tub. One could get a real tub for that fits 6+ bathers for that amount!

    It has one review on amazon. I can't tell if it's sarcastic or not but it cracked me up

    "Thank you ALFI! Before I discovered the FireHotTub-YE Round Fire Burning Portable Outdoor Fiberglass Soaking Hot Tub, I had never found a way to fulfill my lifelong ambition to turn my family into a lovely bowl of soup!"

    Re: Seriously?

    Fire burning hot tubs can have a place, think off grid mountain cabin where trying to run a multi-thousand watt heater off a small set of solar panels would be impossible.

    Re: Seriously?

    When hot tubs became all the rage, a few decades back, that wasn't at all uncommon. That is just a plastic version of the "real deal!"

    Re: Seriously?

    I think I'd get a non working fiberglass spa for 4 and run some PVC FURTHER away from it and make a copper heating coil over a fire pit with a circulation pump. This doesn't have a pump. For off grid a 12volt bilge pump or pond pump would do. Take the other $4K and buy a nice geothermal for the pool !!

    Those old wooden hot tubs that were wood fired at least had some class.

    IMHO, It's just way to small and $4,500 Yikes.


    It does come in different colors if that's what's holding you back There is a factory where they are made, check out the video.

    Re: Seriously?

    You don't need a pump, thermal convection would be more than enough to move the water, as to price you can get the Chinese clone of this for about $1,000 FOB from China.

    Looks like an oversize guacamole bowl.

    I do sort of the same thing when brewing beer I have a coil I submerge into my brewing beer, I pump water out of the pool through the coil and back to cool the brew down from a boil to fermenting temperature. Of course I am not doing it to heat the pool just save water.

    The mom and kids were photoshopped in.. Poorly. Kind of an unsettling image where the fire is sort of blowing towards them too lol.

    Re: Seriously?

    If anyone had this in my town, they would have to get a burn permit everyday. On days when it's windy, or after several days of rain (cause they claim ur fire source must be wet, wth) u wouldn't even be able to get in it without getting a ticket!
