The Fire-powered Dutch Tub

This is one of those designs that seems so ridiculously simple, that when someone praises it you know there are at least a couple people grumbling under their breath that they totally could have thought of that themselves. The sad thing is, we never do, the simplest most obvious ideas don’t always come to the general public. Probably because we tend to think surely someone thought of this before. Well this one was designed by Floris Schoonderbeek, you site you can check out here. Floris made a lo-tech hot tub by harnessing fire to heat up the water. This way you can put it out in the middle of nowhere if you want without worries of having power to hook up the tub with.

The down side is that since it is heated by fire it doesn’t stay on all of the time. Which means it’s going to take a little time for the fire to heat the water again, 2.5 hours to be exact. I could imagine that would get frustrating for some. Yet, the perk of having a tub right out in the middle of gorgeous scenery with not a house in sight would definitely be worth it for many.

  1. The Dutch Tub has made ground in the advancement of outdoor bathing. None the less, has it blown my mind? (Not to mention) My awareness for pleasure? Yes. When Me and My partner first took step into the Soho loft of the future, the Kevin Costner not included, “Waterworld” has made its way into the bellow of my loins. Thanks to Dutch Tub, me and my lover find it easier to float into one. Whenever i look into my dripping queen, the water fire coal, turns on with natural ability. much like my lover. The Spark that exists in her eye, the Burning Love, ignites my forever flame. With out the Dutch tub, i would not be able to reach spiritual climax. Its been once said that the People of the Dutch, have reached an opposite babylon with this offering. It takes Appox. 2.5 hours to heat up from the initial turn on. Extraordinary performance. I believe that that have really won blue ribbon.

  2. I am looking for actual price schedule for the Dutch Tub. I clicked on a BUY button, but only wound up on this page with reviews … no prices and no apparent way to proceed from this page to buy. Where can I find prices?
