IBC tanks and pallets are great resources to have around the homestead for re-purposing projects. Once in awhile a project comes along that combines them in a unique way; such as the DIY pallet hot tub in the video above. According to the builder; he built his version of a hilly billy hot tub for a garden party and it cost him less than £50. The IBC container cost £40, while the pallets, copper pipe and propane tank were free. The other £10 paid for the plumbing connectors. That converts to less than $75 USD; I think it’s time to build an American version!
For those that have an issue with watching youtube videos due to internet connections; below is a brief overview of a similar build from therealorson. This build utilizes a pool filtration system so there is more costs involved.
