Infrared sauna review: Waterstar 2-person (WSD-8002LD)

Getting to Asian models, which become more and more widespread in recent time, I’m going to review Waterstar infrared sauna brand, which is manufactured in China, and is very popular among infrared sauna dealers, probably because of good price/quality value.

Waterstar brand includes many models, with both carbon and ceramic heaters. One of this models is a 2-person WSD-8002LD:

Wood: Hemlock/Russia Spruce/Red cedar.

External dimensions: Width: 47 in/120 cm, Depth: 46 in/117cm, Height: 75 in/190 cm.

Heaters: 5 ceramic heaters, 2 on back (350 Watts), 2 on front (350 Watts) and one under the bench (200 Watts).

Outlets: 110 V, 15 Amps, 1600 Watts.

Accessories: CD player/radio, ionizer.

Warranty: Lifetime, except CD player (1 year).

Price: Usually falls in $1000-$1500 range.

This sauna is standard in many ways. It does not provide any outstanding features, and its appeal is in low price and quality of a smoothly running manufacturing on its own factory in China. Quality doesn’t mean luxury – it just means that saunas are well-made and ratio of defects is low. But maybe it is that most people need – an sauna infrared sauna that just works.

What is interesting, manufacturer of Waterstar warns that there are many fake Waterstar saunas on the market, and encourage to buy only from authorized dealers. You can find the list of dealers on this page.

    In response to your article, you state:
    “What is interesting, manufacturer of Waterstar warns that there are many fake Waterstar saunas on the market, and encourage to buy only from authorized dealers. You can find the list of dealers on this page.”

    The websites you quote are NOT the manufacturer. The actual manufacturers website is http://www.usasauna.com. The US Importer of Waterstar Saunas is Waterstar Sauna USA, whose website is http://www.waterstarsauna.com. The websites you quote are no longer even Waterstar sauna dealers, let alone the manufacturer.

    Just wanted to clear that up for your readers. Thank you.

    Just clicked the above “this page” link to see the available Waterstar dealers and it takes the reader to NPW dealer sales – no mention of Waterstar. Also, according to a rep at NPW they no longer sell Waterstar but a brand called Fed Int., was told it was the parent company of Waterstar – however no evidence online of that claim.

    On another note – thank you for such useful, unbiased information about saunas, have learned much and thank you for your time spent gathering all this data!

    Namasté,
