    Alpine spas?

    I have a bit of spare room o the deck, the boss is rumbling about a spa and it isnt a silly idea since my shoulders are to wide to fit in the bath. The idea of a soak in a bath with jets pounding sore muscles after a day on the hills does appeal. Have discovered alpine spas who are a bit cheaper than other brands. Anyone dealt with them or gone down this road before?

    Will gain big brownie points if I do get one!!

    Mate made an outdoor fire/bbq area at his house in Wanaka, he plumbed a wet back from the fire to a spa he made out of concrete. Those plastic things you buy are insanely priced for what they are. They do look good in Auckland houses though I bet

    Iv been in one that was powered by a water heater inside a pizza oven if you wanted to keep feuling costs down and score extra brownie points with pizza

    no spa blower in it but you can buy them as a stand alone item as i use them to mix my fertiliser tank

    Have a wodfire inside with wetback to hot water cylinder inside, pizza oven is on the other deck with fire pit. If I get one think I will invest in a seperate nit, not the best handyman and in a high fire risk area not too keen on a do it yourself job

    223nut I have an Alpine spa and it is the shizz. Fan fucking tastic is what it is. As you can see in the picture, I went the whole hog and got their gazebo as well. I do have to say that the gazebo is an absolute arsehole of a thing to assemble but the whole shebang is well worth the effort.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Yep if your not that confident in your DIY skills then get a tradesman in to do the jod.
    I earn 20% of my wage by running around fixing DIY screw ups and some of them have been monumental just started a job yesterday where they had thrown there suit cases onto the vent pipe for the hot water cylinder really lucky they did not blow there bloody house up....but do try and get a tradesman with a good rep and crew as 35% of my earnings is running around fixing poor installations
    Rush that dose look like a good idea but I'd add some spouting to that roof! No use going for a good nice long soak steam and coming out only to get back to square one with a big drip of cold water down your neck I'd not be sitting on those stills and whatching you soak either
    But you do have a nice view there

    Sideshow the stools are for me to sit on and have a casual beer and chat when there is a bevy of beauties slowly getting pissed on a glass of wine in the spa. For some reason I just feel compelled to be a sociable host.

    Thanks a million. There is just something to be said about boobs and bubbles that make me quite attentive.
