We will construct a stove in the bathhouse with our own hands!
Recently, the Russian bath buys everythinggreat popularity. And not in vain, because going to the bath gives not only the opportunity to wash and get a good steam, but also get a powerful charge of vivacity for a whole week.
Undoubtedly, the most important element of the bath isbake. If you are planning to build a bath, then you can not do without it. Of course, you can just choose and purchase the finished one. The blessing on sale now them there is a great variety. But in this article we will talk about how to build a stove for a bath with a water tank itself. This, strictly speaking, is not so difficult. The main thing is to observe the technology in the manufacture and understand the principles by which the bath is heated. The wood-burning stove in this regard is worth a separate mention. It can be heated by wood, coal or peat, is less technologically productive than electric or gas furnaces. Plus, it should be noted that the new factory models, no matter how good they are, will not be able to provide the unique sensation that the traditional Russian stove-heater gives. After all, the stove in the bath is not only one of the elements of the construction, but also a special entourage and microclimate created by burning wood. In addition, such a model is more safe than electric and gas, does not require the cost of additional communications. Having installed a wood stove in a bath, you can not be afraid of gas leakage or short circuit in the chain.
Let's talk more about types of home-made ovens. One of them is a stove with a remote water tank. The advantage of this design is its practicality, since there are no situations in which unnecessary raw steam from the tank enters the hot room of the bathhouse. For the manufacture of such a furnace, we will need a conventional oven-burger with a built-in register for heating the water. Above the furnace it is necessary to make a special "pocket" for the stones (to protect it from serious burns it is better to make it open type). Such a furnace is made of sheet steel. The water tank is hung in such a way that its lower edge rises above the register level for at least half a meter. To the register the tank is connected by means of pipes or a rubber hose.
For small rooms it is recommended to make furnaces withlow heat capacity. From the bottom of such a furnace there is an oven, in the center there is a heater, and above the structure there is a tank with water. Inside the metal casing, a brick wall can be laid (there is also a variant of such a stove without the use of bricks), stones are placed on the lattice of steel strips. The above tank is heated by means of hot gases, water is poured into it through a special side opening. The assembly of such a structure is relatively simple and is carried out by welding.
Another interesting option is to make an ovenin a bath from an iron barrel. First, the top and bottom are removed, resulting in a unique cylinder. The resulting design is installed on a grate, which, in turn, is installed on the firebox, laid out of bricks. Inside the barrel is also laid out a wall of bricks placed on the edge, and then the stones are poured into about two-thirds of the interior space. The barrel is covered with a lid, and a chimney is led upward.
Also, a stove in a bath can be made from a thicksheet iron in general without the use of bricks. At the bottom of this structure is an ashtray (a device for collecting ash from the burnt fuel), above there is a firebox, on top there is a grate. On the lattice there are stones, just above and to the side of them there is a chimney. Such a system is fairly simple to assemble, but it does not keep heat for a very long time because of the lack of brick walls in it.
As you can see, if you have the appropriate knowledge and a certain skill, it is not at all difficult to make an oven for a bath yourself. The main thing is diligence and enthusiasm.
