Refinish Western Red Cedar Hot Tub (Inside)

Recommended Posts

Good morning, I have a Western Red Cedar hot tub.  I struggled to keep the water clear.  Perhaps I didn't have the ionizer turned up enough.  I began using more chlorine which kept the water clear.  As a result, the wood began to fail with fur like wood fibers shedding on the inside.  I think I now know how to better maintain the water without a ton of chorine thanks to this forum.  I have drained the tub and now waiting for it to dry completely.  I want to sand the inside to bring it back to original look and feel.  My thought is to use a palm sander with 400 grit to remove the layer of "fur".  Has anyone had any experience to share here?  Much thanks. -Chuck
