DIY Backyard Patio on a Budget (Football Patio)

Here is our finished DIY outdoor patio on a budget, just in time for football season. We wanted to share how a trip to Lowes took a corner of the yard and turned it into a fun hideout for outdoor football parties. We still have room for our raised bed gardens and grill!

Major heat sink is your heater for the water. Get a coil of soft copper tube and make an extension to the sides of your fire pit in coils. Might need to have some sort of vertical clamps to hold the coils securely in place and sit snuggly on top of your fireplace. Or, a circle of sheet metal that sits nicely on your fireplace and attach the copper coils to the inside of that. Spray with high-temp black paint, attach fittings to the coil and plumb into the water pump of the hot tub, and you are good to go. Make the coil easy to remove as it won't take too long to overheat your hot tub, and make sure you don't build a big fire when you are heating water as the output could easily hit 220F and many plastics will begin to melt besides the scalding hazard. You might only want a single coil with high flow rate for ease of construction and minimum chance to overheat the water.

Another idea is to use some black plastic 1/2 inch drip tube laid on a south or southwest facing roof plumbed into the hot tub pump to move some of that high summer heat off of your roof and into the hot tub. Might even lower your air conditioning bill a bit.
