spa_newb Posted September 28, 2008 Report Share Posted September 28, 2008 I am only posting this for fun, personally I think the guy is crazy, but you have to hand it to him for creativity and he did do a good job building it. I bet its not very sanitary though. Poor Man's Hot Tub I got the idea for this hot tub from this pic I found online. I used a 300 Gallon Rubbermaid Stock Tank from Tractor Supply. It's used for watering livestock and cost about $100. I bought a real Spa heater with electronic controller on Ebay for about $250. It controls a $30 pump from Harbor Freight. I get bubbles from a portable bathtub spa from Walmart ($40). I keep the heat in with an inflatable mattress( Ordered it online for around $15) and some insulation from Lowes($20) wrapped around the outside. Add some pvc pipe, a wooden box to house it all, throw in some chemicals and you get a pretty descent little spa for less than $500. It will keep the water around 102 degrees. http://www.hossmachine.info/fun_stuff.html Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
