Water and Bath - inseparable concepts.Stones watered, are in the oven, it is done for "light" steam, and in the shower it is indispensable.To enjoy the bath, it must be present furnace and water tank.Accordingly, the bath tub must be made of high quality material.

main characteristics of the tank
Before you make a tank for a bath, it is worth to staythe main question: what parameters to give preference to the bath tub;How to choose the type of tank: a built-in oven, tank pipe, remote;the material from which to make the tank: iron, steel or stainless steel?Let's define what should be the parameters when it is selected.
settings bath tub
If you can do everything with your hands, try to make the tank for a bath with his hands.First you need to think about what you install the tank in your steam room, which is the principle of the
Next you should decide how you will heat water - using the oven or by PETN, built-in tank.In order to determine that we are profitable - use the stove or use a tank with electric, you need to think about how many people will be attending both the bath.An essential factor is how much water is planned to be heated and, accordingly, allowed time heating to the desired temperature.
If the landlord will bathe alone, it is quite enough for a tank capacity of 50 liters.And to please a large group of friends or the whole family, you need a tank with a capacity of not less than 70 liters.It is important to pay attention to the thickness of the walls of the water tank for a bath, since this parameter will depend on how well will warm the tank, as well as how much longer it will retain heat.Also be aware that the greater the thickness of the tank wall, the higher its cost and weight.The thickness of the tank up to 50 liters should be 0.8-1 mm, and the thickness of the tank with a volume of more than 50 liters.It should be at least 1.5 millimeters.
must not forget what material would not have been made tank to do the required number of conclusions as well as entering the water.How would you not choose tank, buying it in the store, ordering in a workshop, or of making the own hands, you should doderzhivatsya parameters of which we spoke above.Then a visit to the bath for you will be a pleasure.
type tub baths
you need to know that the selection of the bath tank for hot water you need to compare the main parameters of three types: a conventional tank, which is built into the furnace, remote tank and the tank on the pipe.Even in the recent past, there was no doubt that the best option - it is a tank that is built into the oven.The lower part of the boiler is placed in the upper part of the furnace, it is one of the hottest parts, therefore accumulates a larger amount of heat to maintain the optimum temperature of the water and its heating.
If the tank is integrated, the flame directly comes into contact with its bottom, with the construction does not depend on how the output of smoke.In order to take the water tank built into the furnace, it is necessary to scoop water through the tank cap or through the valve integrated in the tank where the water falls by gravity.
If we equip the furnace heat exchangers, which are connected to the tank copper pipes, it allows us not to tie bath tank to the location of the furnace and enables set in a convenient location.According to the laws of physics, cold water to go down into the heat exchanger, and the water is heated to a certain temperature, it will be returned to the tank.One of the best options - setting a tank to wash in the bath, which usually occurs parsing heated water.
The important point is not only a fast heating of water, but also to maintain the desired temperature with minimal energy consumption.Therefore, many tanks bath placed on the tube which is intended to the fumes from the furnace.In the process of combustion smoke is released, the temperature reaches 500 degrees, so the water in the tank, which is located near the pipe is heated quickly.
The above suggests that if you place the device on the tube, you can choose a pot large volume because the heating element can be used during the entire length - from the bath-house stove to the ceiling.The water thus heated quickly and uniformly.This occurs because the tank is made elliptical, so it will be heated quite rapidly when the heating element is located in the middle of the tank.
scheme for the bath tub, which is located on the tube, has a number of advantages.The main one - the elimination of a situation such as carbon monoxide from entering the premises, because the tank is a fuse in case of leakage of smoke.
If you have decided on the type of tank now is to determine the fuel by which this will be heated oven.In our modern environment to replace the wood stove, electric heating elements come because it is a faster and cheaper way of heating as compared to the firewood.However, until now, many are of the view that the smell of burning wood is no substitute.
Well, if it really wanted to breathe the smell of burning wood, not to shell out for the furnace firewood bathhouse, after the steam room, you can sit in the lounge near the fireplace that burns wood.
material for the bath tub
In the good old days of commonly used cast iron bath tank.On heating the water took a long time and do a little wood, but the advantage is that for a long time hot water is stored, so have time to warm up the whole family The advantage of cast iron - that he is not afraid of high temperatures, corrosion resistant, and the major drawbackis quite a lot of weight.
great demand and popular for bath water tanks of stainless steel.First - do not need this capacity to protect from moisture.Second - stainless steel has a good coefficient of thermal conductivity, such water is rapidly heated tanks.The third - a very small coefficient of deformation under the influence of sharp fluctuations in temperature, compared with ferrous metals.
is considered one of the best stainless steel, which is used for the production of pottery.Such brands as steel 8-12X18H10 (304) and 08X17 (430) have the following properties: heat resistance, dimensional stability at high temperatures, corrosion resistance and hygienic.
If you purchased a stove with a tank at a very low price, it is necessary to be ready that soon you will have to bother such a question, how to get rid of the rust in the tank and the paint in the bath tub.Also, do not be surprised that you will not find at a low cost stainless steel tank.To avoid unpleasant sensations in contact with "rusty" water is necessary after draining the tank wipe dry.
save you can also enamelled tank from rust.A significant disadvantage, which is inherent in enamel tanks, is the possibility of chipping on the enamel.Metal cans are also exposed to corrosion, if they are not treated with a special heat-resistant paint.
Painted tank can not be used if it is incorporated into the furnace.Therefore, the most durable and practical bachek is stainless steel.Recent modern design tanks are often outriggers.These tanks have a very good aesthetic appearance and allow the pleasure of the healing hot steam and recovery of the organism as a whole.
In our modern time, the tank for a bath is a solid welded construction, which serves as the material for the thin stainless steel sheets are also made to supply water input and output in the form of ball valves for intake heated water from the tank.Very simple care of such tanks, it does not cause any particular difficulties for the hosts.Buck of chrome or stainless steel does not absorb light and helps to further illuminate the room, and also increases the brightness in reflection.
Finally, remember that the most important thing during the installation and operation of the tank - to observe the features of the installation, as described in the instructions for the bath tub.You must also adhere to all safety measures for self-production of the tank.If all this instruction manual tank will last for a long time, without causing trouble.
