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

Can I stretch my legs out onto the bench?

Yes, but it’d be tight. The 51” bench will accommodate most users, but if you’re concerned about feeling claustrophobic, you may want to consider a larger sauna!

Enjoy the Classics...

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 with Ease!

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.

This sauna is great. Just got it assembled and ready to go. It’s awesome. Customer service has been great with our questions during assembly and learning how to use it. I am planning to buy the rain jacket to keep the water out.

Life Changing

I purchased our sauna with hopes of naturally reducing my blood pressure. It has helped with that but also provides me a quiet space to meditate, prepare for my day and detox. It has been such a great addition to our yard and I use it 3-4x a week as part of my healthy routine. if you're on the fence, do this for yourself, you will not be disappointed.

I use my Watoga every night

I would highly recommend purchasing a from Almost Heaven Saunas. The directions were fairly simple, my wife and I had it together in a few hours. Good video directions online made it easy. The customer service has been great also. I use my Watoga almost every night. I consistently get the heat to 190-200 range. I am very happy with my purchase and would purchase again.
