Care & Maintenance

To best preserve and enhance your investment, be sure to wipe down the interior and vacuum as needed. Maintenance products, such as the heater and sauna cleaners and exterior sauna stains are additional recommendations on how to best preserve your sauna. 

On an annual basis, it is recommended you hand vacuum the heater cavity, clean or replace heater stones as needed, and use a low-pressure wash on the exterior of the sauna. For barrel saunas, check the exterior for loose parts. Find additional information on how to best care for and maintain your sauna here.

FAQs

How small is this sauna?

This is the smallest barrel that we offer! Despite this, it’s a very popular seller due to its affordability as well as smaller footprint. You won’t be able to stretch out on the bench, but you will be able to recline against the backrest and stretch your legs onto the opposite bench.

40 years in the making...

We first started making our signature Barrel Sauna nearly 40 years ago, and it’s become a popular option on our product line ever since. The Barrel Sauna is assembled using a ball-and-socket profile held in place by stainless steel bands and minimal fasteners, the significance of this configuration being that it maintains a reliable seal while allowing the lumber to expand and contract. The entire unit is mounted on polymer support cradles that loft the undercarriage of the sauna and keep it from coming in direct contact with any moisture on the ground.

Build the Salem

The simple grace of a barrel-shaped sauna is found in its ball-and-socket profile, held in place by sturdy stainless-steel bands and minimal fasteners. This arrangement allows the lumber staves to expand and contract to form a tight seal, and the unit sits on polymer support cradles that lift the sauna undercarriage off the ground. The Classic Barrel Sauna is an expressive take on our Classic Barrel Sauna – a design noted for its efficiency, even distribution of heat, and visual appeal. By taking the front round section and setting it back into the sauna, we’ve created a visually appealing and useful outside sitting area – a place to hold towels or drinks or to serve as a relaxing place to cool off between sauna rounds.

Sauna for the WIN! 🔥🙌🏼

After months of research & deliberation, I’m sooo glad I made the purchase! I bought the 2-person and she’s perfect for me. Both efficient & stylish! 🔥👌🏼

1. It took me, my dad & a friend 4-6hrs to build. Once we got the hang of the system, it was a smooth process. 🛠️💪🏼

2. Heat rises so I put the thermostat at the level of my torso when sitting. This is different than instructions suggest, but best if you’re not going to be standing during your whole sauna experience. My sauna gets to about 215 farenheight before shutting off. 👌🏼

3. My dad’s a master electrician, so that was handy! ⚡️ I helped him wire the sauna outdoors and it was quite the simple process. I did, however, have to pay $500 for supplies. Copper wire is expensive in Cali!

4. The heat rocks are great! 🪨 Do like instructions say and DON’T use all the rocks. Leave about 7 out. Otherwise it crowds and less heat can pass through.

5. I purchased a custom tarp to cover the top half and use bungees to fasten down to protect from leaks when it rains. This was a smart purchase as it also helps lock in the heat and makes it even hotter in the sauna! They sell barrel sauna covers, but my custom tarp was far less expensive, high quality and I chose a color that matches my sauna. 💁🏼‍♀️

If I had the space for it, I would have purchased the 4-person. However, the 2-person is delightful, a showstopper & efficient! Friends are always stunned by the beauty. She’s definitely an art piece you won’t want to hide.

I LOVE absolutely everything about this sauna! I use it 1-2 times DAILY. So grateful and feel spoiled every time I step inside. Barrel Sauna for the WIN! 🔥🏆🙌🏼

Salem/Duet Sauna - Finnish Way of Life

We love our new sauna and enjoy the benefits of a spa right at home! We installed it ourselves; the installation was easy and straightforward. I'm 6'2" and there is plenty of room inside. The Harvia heater is the real thing and manages to heat to 160F in about 20 minutes. Since our installation, we've had friends over who commented that they want the same thing. We've only had it for a few weeks and we're already feeling better. We thought we would share one of our photos. We think that it's a beautiful addition to our backyard. Thank you.

Very enjoyable

I am 73 yrs old and have been in different Sauna's throughout my travels over decades. When I was younger it was one of my favorite things to do with my father. I am use to the rock heater style so a decade ago I tried an infrared 2 person for a while then sold it to a neighbor as it did just not work for me. So I went back to my basics and bought the Salem 2 person. It was easy to assemble and I use it almost every other day. Brings back great memories. The team at Almost Heaven has been very easy to work with and helpful when I had a question. It is usually just me so the size is fine. If I was going to use with others, I would have gone up one size. Everyone who comes over and sees it outside next to my hot tub gets very jealous and want to use it.

Beautiful Sauna, perfect size, great service

Sauna is perfect, easy and fun to make, and looks fantastic. Crace was very helpful in getting the order right, and troubleshooting the setup. I would recommend them to anybody.
