We thought that it would be better to prop up the bath on mounds of mud in addition to digging a fire pit underneath the middle of the bath. We found an ideal location, underneath the blossom and out of the way in a secluded part of the garden. After a few wheel barrows of mud and a bit of digging it was ready and we shifted the bath into place.
The homemade hot tub was awesome and we had a lot of fun making it and even more fun relaxing in it. Next time we’ll have to go bigger and better and build something that you can fit more than one or two people in. With warmer spring days and cooler nights upon us, plus summer vacations (hopefully) in the not-too-distant future, it's officially hot tub season.
It turns out, you can pick up some unappetizing and even dangerous bugs from a hot tub dip, both from the water itself and also from the steamy atmosphere around it.
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is commonly found in water and soil, and multiplies in the water when disinfectant levels dip. The rash often follows the shape of a person's bathing suit, and is characterized by itchy spots that develop into a bumpy rash, as well as pus-filled blisters around hair follicles, according to the CDC -- symptoms usually crop up within a few days of exposure.
While hot tub rash typically clears up on its own without treatment, another more serious condition to be aware of is the potentially fatal Legionnaires’ disease, a type of pneumonia caused by a germ called Legionella, which is found in water (especially warm water) and can be breathed in from the steam or mist surrounding a contaminated hot tub -- people older than age 50, smokers and those with weakened immune systems are particularly susceptible. According to the CDC's most recent outbreak report, released earlier this year, 16 outbreaks related to hot tubs and spas were reported to the CDC in 2009-2010 -- 43.8 percent of them were suspected or confirmed to be caused by Pseudomonas, and 25 percent were confirmed to be caused by Legionella. On top of pathogens that can naturally be found in water, humans also introduce their own share of germs when they slip into a hot tub. Another concern is people urinating in the hot tub (while exact numbers are difficult to pinpoint for hot tubs specifically, one poll found that one in five Americans copped to peeing in a swimming pool). While many people shower after swimming, it's key to bathe before you get in the hot tub, too -- personal care products such as lotion, makeup and sunscreen use up the disinfectant in the water, meaning it's less able to kill off other bugs. I had an aquarium water pump left over from a computer water cooling system project that I no-longer used. I filled the 5 gallon bucket with water and used a car battery connected to an inverter to power the pump to pump water out of the bucket, through the plastic tube, through the copper coil in the fire, and back through a plastic tube into the bucket.
I estimated it would take a bit over 4 hours to heat up the estimated 1000 liters of a hot tub.
Each side has 1280 square inches of surface area for a total of 743 pounds of force per side. I decided to use 3 2X4's to brace each side and a hole drilled through and ready rod inserted into staggered 2X4's to hold the sides to together, but also to be quickly assemble-able and disassemble-able, like a tent. Since the corner-to-corner-diameter is double the side length, but there are 2 metal rods per corner-to-corner-diameter, each metal rod also supports 743 pounds of force to hold the hot tub together. I bought pool noodles and sliced them into C shapes on the table saw and used them as cushions on the tops of the sides, so you don't hurt yourself while stepping in or out, and also to use as a pillow. The ready rods could be removed and the hot tub sides staggered and stacked into a compact shape that could fit into my van. We annealed the pipes in a campfire, then soldered the pipes together into one long pipe, using the copper connector pieces, and then wrapped it around a 5 gallon bucket to coil it. We scooped water out of the lake in a 5 gallon bucket and filled the back of the pickup truck. We then drove the pickup truck back to the hot tub and scooped the water into the hot tub with the 20 liter bucket. After 3 trips with the pickup truck, my friends got tired and refused to help me anymore, but the hot tub was full enough for testing. It takes 100 20 liter bucket full’s to fill the hot tub, and each 20 liter bucket full weighs 44 pounds, so it is a big job to fill the hot tub. We pumped water through a garden hose clamped to the coiled copper pipe, which was heating in the fire, then back out through another garden hose, and back into the hot tub.
Where the hose was near the fire, we protected it from the radiating heat by wrapping it in aluminum foil. The hot tub heated, but the hose was not designed for high temperatures and the inner surface shrunk and cut off the water flow, then the hose exploded in a cloud of steam. The sump pump was designed for an AC sine wave and didn't work reliably with the square wave that the inverter put out, and it also didn't put out much pressure.
I put a tarp over the top to stop evaporation heat loss, and the water temperature plateaued at 38 degrees Celsius. The sump pump wasn't powerful enough and I didn't like having 120 Volts next to water like that, so I bought a 12V boat bilge pump at Canadian Tire, which also turned out to have much more power.
I bought a brand new tarp, but it also leaked, so I bought a 15' X 12' X 45 mil pond liner. I could have gone with a cheaper 20 mil pond liner, but I thought that I ought to get something more durable to hold drunk people while camping.
I needed to reduce the heat loss to maintain a higher temperature, so I bought 1" thick Styrofoam to insulate the sides and the bottom. I'm planning to build a tent roof over the top of the hot tub to reduce evaporation heat loss. I glued the Styrofoam sides to the plywood sides using a spray on glue that I had bought for building the bed in the back of my van.
I wraped the transition from copper to hose in aluminum foil to protect it from the heat radiating out of the fire.
Further down the hose, I put a foam sleave around the hose to insulate the hose from heat loss.
This pump wants to pump water faster and I think that it is a waste of battery power to restrict the water flow of such a powerfull pump like that. Which is more effective at preventing unwanted pregnancies:  abstinence education or conception education?
She convinces her boyfriend Finn that he is the father although they’ve never had sex because they had a racy make out session in a hot tub.  And he believes her!
The conclusion is that any high school student worth his salt will blow off everything he hears in health class, and that what kind of sex ed he gets doesn’t matter much either way, except to make various adults feel better for having Done Something about an intractable problem.


Sexual activity is more linked (in my opinion, which is formed by observation & knowledge of psychology) to cultural norms than any degree of education.
So in short, I think MOST sex-ed efforts in high-school are doomed to failure, regardless of their emphasis. I mean this is a level of failure that is astounding, but I’m guessing that if ONE person is dumb enough to miss that connection, then there are lots of others that do too.
At home I got the typical Mormon chastity upbringing, but my parents were always open to answering any question about sex and birth control. I completely agree with Benjamin Orchard that sexual activity is determined more by cultural norms than anything else. That said, I find it really hard to believe that the results of the poll are actually representative. This is just one data point, but in my extended family we have three generations of couples that got pregnant out of wedlock and were forced to get married. It has to do with the way that parents teach and speak about sex as well as how the society does.
We taught our kids about sex as soon as they started asking questions, in age-appropriate ways (not explaining stuff in clinical Latin terms to a 4-yo, but being more straightforward with a 10-yo).
In addition to that, as they were approaching teen years, we taught them about contraception and different risks, and how to avoid them. Even if you don’t believe in the law of chastity, sex will be associated with strong feelings, and you should not treat them lightly. I don’t think that our kids have avoided the typical pitfalls because of our teaching. Spending an inordinately long time in front of the TV does give both adults and children a warped view of humanity. That’s exactly because irresponsible sexual behavior has social implications, so the society has a good reason to mandate it. The r^2 is over .9 that if children communicate well with their parents, they do not have sex while in high school or before. I got pregnant at 17 not because I was encouraged to be abstinent before marriage (I was), and not because I didn’t have access or information about contraceptives (I did).
You ca preach contraception and abstinence as much as you want, but if the parents and home life of these teens arent stable, theyre MUCH more likely to have teen sex.
First, I’m totally open with my children, and they can talk with my wife and me about absolutely anything, including contraception. Second, sexual activity, especially when one of the partners has had multiple partners, has potentially horrific results in our society.
I feel skeptical that the type of sex-ed taught in schools has much impact on teenage sexual behavior or pregnancy rates. I can only shake my head at the type of parenting that Nick describes by the family with 9 children. The law of Moses forbade to hold a father responsible for the transgressions of the son, and I will accept responsibility only insofar as some infraction is the result of our failure to teach the correct principles. To illustrate, when I was in the YW Presidency, one of the Laurels (the president) became pregnant. Jettboy, rather than flying off on a defensive rant, why not actually read my comment, including the clear acknowledgement that the stories I told were not representative of all LDS members? The whole you watch violence, but not sex argument is a false relationship…That said, there is a huge difference between the two in social responses. If someone can prove that watching slasher or violent movies increases the chances that violence and murder become acceptable then my views on this will change. From my reading over the years, Jettboy, neither sexual or violent media presentations have been conclusively proven to increase similar behavior on the part of viewers. If you thought that I was making an equivalency argument, Jettboy, you misunderstood my comments.
I hear you, but I just got done watching Fight Club and I think you and JettBoy need to settle this mano e mano. Just remember, like the temple, the first rule of Fight Club is you don’t talk about Fight Club.
Somewhere to lie, soak, relax and think and let your body and mind unwind after a long day? Obviously just running the water from the warm tap is too expensive, and the heat wouldn’t last long The best option was clearly to use a small campfire to heat something metal that would conduct the heat and transfer it into the water. This was an easy one to answer because we knew that there was an old bath tub left in one of the sheds that had been collecting dust. Not only would this provide a stable, simple and movable platform for it, but also help capture and direct the heat from the fire into the tub.
It’s a different experience being in a hot tub that is fuelled directly from a fire, as opposed to just having a jet of hot water. If you’ve always wanted your own hot tub then try making your own and send us in your pictures.
Unlike a pool, the warmer temperature of a hot tub makes it more difficult to maintain the proper disinfectant levels that kill certain germs, Hlavsa explains. Legionella, which protects itself in the water similarly to the way Pseudomonas aeruginosa does, Hlavsa says, can also cause a milder, flu-like illness called Pontiac fever. When urine (and other waste, such as sweat) mixes with chlorine, it creates an irritant called chloramine, which is what causes red, stinging eyes when swimming and can also irritate your respiratory tract, Hlavsa explains.
Don't leave your swim up to chance: Hlavsa recommends buying a set of test strips at your local pool supply store (they typically cost less than $10 for 50 strips, she says) so you can know if the water is safe before you hop in.
But when they don’t society must step in, because sex happens to have many consequences to society as a whole. That’s exactly because irresponsible sexual behavior has social implications, so the society has a good reason to mandate it.
Today in Western Europe and America (not just US) teenage sexual activity is the norm, so as already said, many or at least some will conform. We had some dinner discussions that would have made many of our neighbors think we’re some liberal sex-crazed weirdoes.


We tried to teach about risks without demonizing sex itself, and continued to stress the psychological and spiritual issues with sex.
Sex can be a wonderful thing to share with a special partner you feel good with; if sex is all you have in common, your relationship will soon wither. Two of them were sealed in the temple, which suggests that they did live according to TR requirements.
I think it has more to do with having long and lively discussions in the dinner table about all thinkable (and some quite unthinkable, as will be the case with teenagers!) subjects. I got pregnant because I had a broken family life, non-existent parents, abusive parents when they were involved, and had no rules or structure as a teenager (ie, no one waiting up for me at night, and no loving, late night conversations with mom or dad). Teach your children self worth, love them, encourage them, give them rules and structure, know where they are at all times, and talk to them honestly about sex and contraception.
Modern revelation has the implication, too, that if parents do not teach, they are responsible, otherwise, the children are responsible for themselves. Her mother sought me out, desperate to navigate what to do about it all (which was weird because I was this young 20-something and she was well into her 40’s). That isn’t to say I would watch Hostel any more than Brokeback Mountain because I find BOTH of them disgusting.
Pregnancy facts and myths – especially the girls need to understand these because they will be the ones dealing with the consequences directly. So have we, and after quite a bit of consideration we decided to try and make our own one, without spending any money, and see how far we got. This would work perfectly, as the cast iron would efficiently conduct the heat from the fire and transfer it evenly to the water. This stopped the heat escaping out of the back and stopped the smoke rising up and toasting the blossom.
All that was needed was a bit of bubble bath, a few tea candles and lanterns and a bit of cold water from the hose (the fire was surprisingly effective at heating up a lot of water.
That means with five people, "you have a tablespoon of poop in the hot tub." And beyond the gross-out factor, without safe levels of disinfectant, you can run the risk of transmitting diseases, he says. I am not sure about teen sexual activity, but I have pored through studies that show that their kids at least have less incidence of STD as well as unwanted pregnancy. At some point I told my sons that if they are not going to have the backbone to be chaste, they may as well go to hell without syphilis.
If we boil it all down, one has total disregard for human life, and the other was a love story. Also, I know lots of Mormons who find The Dark Knight and Brokeback Mountain equally disgusting. On the other hand I also said that guys don’t expect anything expensive and a fancy card is quite enough to make it personal.
We could then use garden trimmings that would be burnt on the bonfire anyway to heat it all up. No, not really, but I did tell them, that even if they do not believe in the things their parents do spiritually, they should be men enough to talk about contraception with the girl they’re going to have sex with. It was there so that if there was some talk about a show that the kids showed interest in, we would watch it together. There are lots of non-Mormons I know who have given up movies entirely because of too much of both. In both situations, much like sex in movies, there is no sense of any lasting consequences other than a black eye.
The hot tub should have smooth tiles, no odor and a temperature that doesn't exceed 104 degrees F. We told ourselves getting pregnant couldn’t happen to us (because cognitively, thats how teenagers view the world). In other words, the less the consequences are shown as a negative then the more likely it is for it to become socially accepted. We wanted to escape our broken homes and somewhere, deep down in the back of our minds, we wanted a family of our own. Forget about the practical things and come up with personalized gift that you either did yourself, or spend a lot of time looking for.2.
Even if you buy her the fanciest card in the shop, if you don’t write something personal, it will be a waste. In a few words, tell her how you feel about her, what you love most, your best memory, or just thank her for being the better half of you. Girls like handy boys, so why don’t you surprise her with something you did yourself. In the first part of this article I suggested map coasters, they are good for both males and females.
You can buy vouchers for helicopter ride, bungee jumping, skydiving, wine tasting, etc, just as long as you get two and share that day with her.8. If you think the time has come and you are still not married, you can always pop the question and give her an engagement ring. Apply those tips in everyday life, not just for the holidays and you will enjoy a harmonious and long-lasting relationship.AboutLatest Posts Lana Jane FoxLana Jane Fox is a young, aspiring housewife, currently living in North Melbourne.
