A 65-year-old salesman had no work during lockdown and wanted to find a new way to relax and reduce stress while sitting in his garden. Paul Vaughan then proceeded to build his very own budget hot tub using an old, pre-formed pond base that he dug out from his garden. The water is cleaned using the old fish pond filtration system, which he runs through 20m of hose pipe sitting on his concrete path, to heat the water. And just for a laugh, Paul added an outboard motor—to create swirling jacuzzi bubbles—and he’s been relaxing in the homemade tub in Bridgend, Wales, every day since.
