    New above ground hot tub

    Hi. I'm new to forums in general. This is my first and only. Help please!

    We want to build an above ground hot tub (8ft round) with a natural stone look that "appears" to be a pond with a waterfall cascading down into a small creek/pond.

    Gunite or shot-Crete would be a good option, but we live in Casper, WY. No one will come here for this small of s project.

    So, thinking of doing a block wall covered in plaster and surrounded by natural stone.

    Questions:
    1. What are all the plumbing pieces I need to have some jets, filtration, drain, etc. ? No blower. Any kits that come with all this?

    2. Best kind of plaster?

    3. Do I need a liner?

    4. Words of wisdom?

    Given your climate you may be better off with a prebuilt hot tub that is well insulated, such as ones built by Arctic Spa's in Canada.
    Indoor 20x40 35,000 gallon vinyl pool with 1.5 HP 2 speed Jandy FloPro pump, Hayward EC75 Perflex DE filter, 11 4x12 Techno-Solis solar panels w/ Aquasolar controller, Aquabot Turbo T Robot Cleaner. Also LMI metering chlorine dispenser pump and HotSpring Jetsetter

    This is kinda the look we'd want, only we want a creek below. The prebuilt spas won't do.
